FCCJ 4 - 1 HTJ

Dark skies made several of the 212 spectators at Dame Gruev contemplate an early return journey, but the rain held off. The coach fielded the following talents: Miloshevski - Zeqiri, Ribarev, Vuthaj - Gorachinov, Oncheski, Lazarov, Ravnjanski, Ceka - Efremoski, Barutovski.

Starters: Meyer - Lehkonen, Pyöriä, Ukura - Kotti, Vallbacka, Haavistola, Kytönen, Aarrekangas - Heikura, Musakka.

As the teams spread out over the pitch, it became clear that they would both be using a 3-5-2 formation today. HTJ saw most attack opportunities on the wings. The visitors' central defenders should have stopped Simeon Barutovski, but they were naive in their efforts and let him slip through. The goal, a low shot the goalie couldn't reach, put FCCJ into the lead, 1 - 0! HTJ's Antti Pyöriä simply knocked that ball up the field hoping it would reach a teammate, and that's just what happened. Teo Kotti outsmarted the keeper and the score was now 1 - 1. Mile Ribarev was congratulated by his FCCJ teammates, having won the lead with his 2 - 1 goal. He weaved through the central defenders of the guests, then clipped the ball in low to the keeper's right. Things were going to get worse for the visiting boys. Grigor Efremoski willed his way through the central defense with 34 minutes played, and scored to make it 3 - 1, securing the lead. FCCJ wanted more goals, and one nearly came as Joakim Oncheski received a cross from the right and unleashed a volley wide of the mark after 35 minutes. At the halftime break, the score was 3 - 1. In this half FCCJ were the most energetic, keeping the ball to themselves for 56 percent of the time.

FCCJ's Apostol Ravnjanski had an excellent opportunity after 70 minutes, receiving a through pass from the right wing that became a dangerous shot at goal! FCCJ's Grigor Efremoski was shown a yellow card after 70 minutes for using his elbow when contesting a header. Against a weaker team, FCCJ could very well have succeeded with their tricky indirect free kick combination after 72 minutes. A flurry of passes took the ball all the way past the defenders, but by then the intended striker was already blocked out and the keeper could make an easy save. FCCJ extended their lead to 4 - 1. The man of the minute, minute 77 to be precise, was Simeon Barutovski, who protected the ball well as he came in from left side to find an angle for his finish. The visitors got a chance to pulling one back after 80 minutes, due to a defensive mistake that left Ville Kytönen completely unmarked. He hit more grass than ball when striking though, so the keeper could easily pick the ball up in his arms. That's it! The score is 4 - 1. FCCJ, bringing their ball possession to 56 percent, seemed most ambitious today.

The FCCJ players gave Lambe Lazarov a group hug after the game, claiming he'd been "really great". On the other hand, the level of play may have been too high for Gerti Zeqiri. Antti Lehkonen performed especially well for HTJ - he could be a candidate for the senior squad one day. The coach took Alari Meyer aside after the game, telling him it is okay to have a bad day on the field as long as you keep trying.
