Overcast weather free of rain made for a turnout of 1656 at MOUN Arena today. Dumitru Pascu was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Oscar Muñoz and . Our studio analysts were correct. starsboys has taken the field in a 5-4-1 alignment. Starters: Pizzotti - Hunter, Sul, Urbano, Weiwadel, Buturić - Bylinskis, Llaudó, Fernandes, Ruyters - Le Gall.

Cry "havoc" and let loose the dogs of war! Mazières will go to battle in a 3-5-2 formation. They fielded: Bremond - Forsgren, Godulyan, Hänninen - Holzinger, Attard, Sendoya, Perko, Papitzakis - Dozorets, Cowper.

starsboys's game plan was to sit back and absorb the pressure, then use their brilliant ability to break on the counter whenever possible. Mazières's goal to take the lead 0 - 1 came via a questionable penalty, but Michael Attard drove it home without a second thought. With 24 minutes played, starsboys's Samuel Urbano received a yellow card for challenging a play with his cleats first. With the scoreboard showing that 25 minutes had been played, Mazières nearly put themselves up another goal after Vasiliy Dozorets came through on the left. Fortunately for the home crowd, the keeper made the save. With 26 minutes gone, a long pass from the defense of starsboys resulted in a counter-attack that set Raimis Bylinskis free through the middle, but the keeper made a spectacular diving save. Alan Cowper somehow managed to break free of his man on the left wing and only needed a relatively easy finish to bring Mazières's lead up to 0 - 2. Mazières's players now seemed to think the job was done and acted more defensively, just waiting for the ref to blow the final whistle. Halftime score was 0 - 2. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that Mazières had 76...76 percent possession. AH AH AH!

Content with how the game was proceeding, the Mazières coach let Andrea Bonazzoli come on for Alan Cowper after 46 minutes. The home crowd was not impressed when Vassilis Papitzakis came in from the right, shooting hard to score after 47 minutes. Mazières were now up 0 - 3. After 68 minutes of game time, Michael Attard had an excellent opportunity to add to the visitors' lead, hitting a cross from the right with a half volley, but Pierpaolo Pizzotti was in the right place and tipped the ball to a corner. The visitors' Uuras Forsgren took advantage of a mix-up between the home side's goalie and center backs 70 minutes into the match. 0 - 4 for Mazières. The ball was in the back of the home team's net yet again after 80 minutes, but this time the referee called the goal back because Vasiliy Dozorets had knocked a member of the opposing team to the ground while the play occurred down the middle of the field. With the clock showing 81 minutes played, a great pass from the defensive line of starsboys resulted in a counter-attack that was smoothly brought under control by Marijan Buturić in the center of the opposition's penalty area, but his finish went high. The forty-five minutes were dominated by Mazières, with an impressive 77 percent possession of the ball.

The most outstanding starsboys player was without a doubt Romain Le Gall. Good thing Wayne Hunter isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance. Mazières's top performer was clearly Andrea Bonazzoli. I can't remember Vasiliy Dozorets ever having a worse night than he just had. The match ends 0 - 4.
