Azules 2 - 0 Gótico

Weather conditions were fairly good for soccer, and Ike Abelange - "El Bulo Bufarrete" saw a turnout of 592. Tilo Bandow was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Fabian Niedersberger and Edgar Zenkner. The following players had been selected: Fiorentino - Mehto, Bulín, Malakian, Niggli, Strocchi - Ferraz, Yorgov, De Toffol - Cantais, Ongena.

The following players took the field: De la Paz - Menendez, Tonelli, Higuera - Zar, Kaira, Landow, Lewera, Pérez - Noriega, Diorio.

Azules con la Mano trundled out to the pitch in a 5-3-2 formation. The visitors, Vélez Gótico, chose to start the game with a 3-5-2 lineup. Hold your ground, Gótico! Hold your ground! A day may come when inadequate pressing fails, an hour of desperate goals and shattered shin guards, but it is not this day! With 23 minutes played, Gótico's Darío Ricardo Menendez received a yellow card for challenging a play with his cleats first. Arimo Mehto is making an astonishing dash. The fans are chanting his name. You can hear it reverberate around the stadium. Now a manic sprint up the middle and into the box. Oh! He's thrown open the door! He's thrown open the door, shot the ball through, and slammed the door shut on Mr. Tumnus! Azules has taken the lead 26 minutes into the match, 1 to 0. There'll be no Turkish Delight after the match for the keeper! 1 - 0 was the halftime score. Possession of the ball was split evenly between the teams during the forty-five minutes.

Coming through the middle Karl Landow almost scored the equalizer for Gótico after 48 minutes, but Rolando Ramón Fiorentino made an excellent save, tipping the awkward swerving shot past the post. With 51 minutes played, the visitors could have scored the tying goal after Leoncio Pérez came through the middle, but his kick went wide. The Azules players could smell victory in the air. Abdel Niggli wasn't in a hurry to leave the field as he was substituted for Ignaz Rennan after 60 minutes. Azules's Arimo Mehto wanted to play on, but after 60 minutes the decision was made to give Răzvan Fărăuanu a chance in his place. As Arimo Mehto left the field, the coach signaled to Jaromír Bulín to start taking the set pieces that occurred. Jaromír Bulín became the new Azules captain. Rolando Ramón Fiorentino had put in a good 60 minutes and left the field with a smile on his face due to his team's lead. Domingo Faustino Piccardo was the replacement. Given a free kick from an impossible angle, Azules went for a play that loyal fans may recognize from training. A square ball surprised the defense and let Andrea Strocchi slip through at goal. He hit it first time, making the score 2 - 0, 64 minutes into the game. The match ends 2 - 0. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that Azules had 53...53 percent possession. AH AH AH!

The most outstanding Azules player was without a doubt Domingo Faustino Piccardo. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because Jaromír Bulín seemed to stumble all over the pitch. Gótico's top performer was clearly Lucio Noriega. Good thing Gustavo De la Paz isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance.
