The weather was pretty good, and a crowd of 1016 had shown up at Atlantis for the match. Ricardo Lanza was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Marian Păduraru and Enzo Gasche. The match took place on neutral ground. The following players had been selected: Whiston - Mancuso, Elduayen, Oria, Ingrao - Stan, Gangwald, Katter, Szarfemberg, Rychlak - Matev.

The following players took the field: Al Fandy - Serrato, Wibrant, Jovanovich, Giselmann, Brandenweg - Ballesteros, Pardo, Abdala, Lutati - Banega.

Lequipodelongor trundled out to the pitch in a 4-5-1 formation. The visitors, Crestas Negras, chose to start the game with a 5-4-1 lineup. Lequipodelongor's game plan was to sit back and absorb the pressure, then use their outstanding ability to break on the counter whenever possible. Using their outstanding counter-attacking abilities was the strategy of choice for Crestas today. It's a small letdown for Demián Jovanovich that the Lequipodelongor coach has decided not to select Moukhlis Wahdawi for the starting lineup. He had been instructed to neutralize him! Lequipodelongor were very close to putting themselves one up with 16 minutes gone as Milan Matev got through on the left, but a lapse in concentration sent the ball wide. The game had been going for 20 minutes when Milan Matev came in on the right, feinted, then sped past the off-balance defender to put away the 1 - 0 goal, giving Lequipodelongor the lead. 30 minutes into the game, Lequipodelongor were awarded a penalty that Carmelo Oria converted into a bigger lead without so much as a how-do-you-do to the visiting keeper. It's 2 - 0 now! With the clock showing 32 minutes played, a great pass from the defensive line of Crestas resulted in a counter-attack that was smoothly brought under control by José Pardo in the center of the opposition's penalty area, but his finish went high. Halftime score was 2 - 0. Lequipodelongor did a good job holding on to the ball, with 69 percent of possession. We'll be back after these interminable commercial messages.

After 64 minutes, José Pardo was massaging his left knee with a worried look on his face, but managed to get up in the end. The bench was restless, and with 75 minutes gone Crestas's coach gave Adrian Bernyś the opportunity to try to change the team's fortunes. Demián Jovanovich reluctantly left the field. As the match nears its end, the referee deemed it appropriate to add 1 minutes as stoppage time. After 89 minutes, a couple of quick and successful challenges followed by a shot from just outside the penalty area by Alfred Szarfemberg might have resulted in another goal for Lequipodelongor. However, Suleiman Al Fandy made a spectacular save. Crestas's Rogelio Serrato was shown a yellow card for standing over the ball and blocking an opponent's quick free kick after 89 minutes. The match ends 2 - 0. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that Lequipodelongor had 67...67 percent possession. AH AH AH!

Alfred Szarfemberg performed admirably for Lequipodelongor. Good thing Eugen Stan isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance. The most outstanding Crestas player was without a doubt Adrian Bernyś. I can't remember Suleiman Al Fandy ever having a worse night than he just had.
