The teams had chosen different formations for the match. The home team, Los Mejores Fútbol Club, went for a 3-5-2, while Flyboys has decided to play a 2-5-3 lineup. Flyboys seemed to prefer attacking in the middle, using their titanic ability to great effect. Flyboys took the lead 17 minutes into the game, making the score 0 - 1 after some elegant movement down the middle. Orlando Baptist was the scorer. A thrilling play through the middle after 26 minutes gave Flyboys's Mike Kallenborn a chance to increase the lead, and he happily obliged. The score was then 0 - 2. Always a threat, Daniil Suganov tore past his marker and placed the ball right at the feet of the waiting Ángel Pakomio who should have easily scored for bra-arg, but the ball went wide. Flyboys had a good opportunity to attack on the wing, but remembered their instructions to go for middle instead. After 34 minutes a combination in the middle resulted in a through ball for Hamilton Cunningham who increased Flyboys's lead to 0 - 3. bra-arg's Ángel Pakomio was shown a yellow card after 37 minutes for slicing down an opponent. A slight injury to his right calf muscle meant Orlando Baptist had to leave the match early. It happened after 37 minutes. This gave Fred Gonçalves a chance to take to the field instead. The teams went for the halftime break at 0 - 3. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that Flyboys would have 57 percent possession in this half was spot on!

Flyboys's Manuel Delavier received a ball slotted perfectly through the home side's central defense after 47 minutes, and chipped it past the helpless keeper to increase the lead to 0 - 4. The away fans won't regret traveling for this one! 69 minutes into the game, Flyboys worked the left side industriously creating several opportunities to add to their lead, but just couldn't apply the finishing touch. The head of Olívio Nakano connected with a beautiful corner kick after 72 minutes. He wasn't shooting, though, but rather passing to Fred Gonçalves of Flyboys who buried the shot for 0 - 5. Central attacks were the recipe of the day for Flyboys, and they were successfully passing the ball from the wing into the middle at the behest of their coach. After 80 minutes, Flyboys's Mike Kallenborn burst through the central defense and let loose a cannonball of a shot, scoring for 0 - 6. bra-arg had a brilliant opportunity to reply as Daniil Suganov received a high ball from the right and hit it on the bounce. Helger Rajavee's reflexes induced groans from the home crowd, though. The referee decided to let play continue for an additional 3 beyond the regular 90 minutes. The match ends 0 - 6. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that Flyboys had 65...65 percent possession. AH AH AH!

bra-arg's top performer was clearly Mario Garia. Speaking of stinking up the place, Berislav Sudac sure smelled like the bottom of Batman's shoe after a night of crimefighting in Gotham. Manuel Delavier performed admirably for Flyboys. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by Ian Higashi today.
