Overcast weather free of rain made for a turnout of 940 at Stadium Mane Nono today. Alpha Arnoult was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Arnfried Merthan and Juanfran Cisneros. Cry "havoc" and let loose the dogs of war! PEXINOISE will go to battle in a 5-3-2 formation. The following players had been selected: Nathan - Ruaud, Dron, Müller, Achenza, Pinon - Fillaudeau, Charra, Bellavance - Salis, Alexandre.

Our studio analysts were correct. Rochelais has taken the field in a 3-4-3 alignment. They fielded: Simon - Remke, Grima, Furacão - Lordanić, Andreev, Kriegmaier, Lajta - Pasquier, Brito Cunha, Viglietta.

Using their magnificent counter-attacking abilities was the strategy of choice for PEXINOISE today. Rochelais decided to play creatively. Was it the hair gel? Was it a gift from the gods? Either way, the faithful won't care. Soaring like a Saturn V, Mikaël Grima somehow got his head on a José Sérgio Furacão moonshot from the corner and buried it in the back of the net. What grace! What power! Plant the flag for Rochelais, Neil Armstrong! The score is now 0 - 1. A lob over the top of PEXINOISE's defensive line after 30 minutes put Szabolcs Lajta in a footrace for the ball. While this usually results in a shooting opportunity, Guillaume Ruaud matched his run stride for stride and knocked the ball out of play. After 42 minutes, Jérôme Alexandre rushed down the middle past the away team's defenders to score the 1 - 1 goal. It was 1 - 1 at the break. The forty-five minutes were dominated by Rochelais, with an impressive 62 percent possession of the ball.

With 49 minutes gone, a long pass from the defense of PEXINOISE resulted in a counter-attack that set Jérôme Alexandre free through the middle, but the keeper made a spectacular diving save. Patrick Charra of PEXINOISE received a yellow card after 55 minutes for unsportsmanlike behavior. PEXINOISE mounted an inspired counter-attack down the right wing after 75 minutes, but Patrick Charra was unable to convert from short range. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that Rochelais had 61...61 percent possession. AH AH AH!

Most important PEXINOISE player was Joey Bellavance. I can't remember Guillaume Ruaud ever having a worse night than he just had. The most outstanding Rochelais player was without a doubt Baptiste Simon. Good thing Paulo Isidoro Brito Cunha isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance. The match ends 1 - 1.
