2245 spectators had come to La Pépinière this cloudy day. was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Stijn Chevalet and . The head coach flashed hand signals from the sideline and Niort formed up in a 3-4-3 combination. Let's hope the opposing sideline wasn't filming that. They fielded: Thomas - Bertrand, Cantin, Duvaut - Poulidor, Fahmi, Kriesel, Baille - Piette, Hector, Barlet.

Our studio analysts were correct. rabbits_fury has taken the field in a 3-5-2 alignment. The following players had been selected: Lartigue - Vikkelsø, Springer, Valbeny - Bouman, Abels, Uddmo, Öö, Pérez - Kneisel, Roman.

Like the adage "bend but don't break", rabbits_fury will rely on their inadequate ability to counter-attack today. With 34 minutes of the match played, a comedy of errors by the home side gave the visitors a chance at the lead, but Joel Kneisel, after dashing down on goal from the left and finding himself with only the keeper to beat, sliced his shot horribly wide. After 41 minutes of play, Muchamad Fahmi gave the home team a 1 - 0 lead after an attack coming in from the right. Halftime score was 1 - 0. The forty-five minutes were dominated by Niort, with an impressive 60 percent possession of the ball.

An unexpected volley from Crin Roman almost resulted in a goal, but Alejandro Pérez couldn't finish after the ball came back off the keeper. Almost all the way down at the corner flag, rabbits_fury's Alejandro Pérez somehow managed to get a perfect pass into the middle, impossible to miss for Crin Roman, who scored for 1 - 1. After 64 minutes cheers broke out as Yves Barlet found his way through the guests' central defensive line, rattling the 2 - 1 goal in off the woodwork for Niort. After more pushing and shoving than a pack of helicopter moms trying to get the last appointment for their snowflakes to see the Easter Bunny, Niort's Thomas Kriesel finally got himself booked for a foul. Ferdynand Borysewicz did some final stretches before entering the game as rabbits_fury's trainer helped Joel Kneisel off the field after an injury. Niort's Bruno Cantin had an excellent opportunity 70 minutes in, shooting after bringing down a ball from the right, but he missed the goal by miles! The visitors almost came back with an equalizer 78 minutes into the match after a good combination down the middle, but Ferdynand Borysewicz didn't get enough power behind the attempted finish to seriously challenge the keeper. 86 minutes into the match, the visitors' central line of defense had to look on as Darrel Piette ran straight through, knocking one home to make it 3 - 1 for Niort. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that Niort had 58...58 percent possession. AH AH AH!

Most important Niort player was Thomas Kriesel. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by Raphaël Baille today. The most outstanding rabbits_fury player was without a doubt Asso Öö. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by Ferdynand Borysewicz today. The match ends 3 - 1.
