A scorching day at Chemist.gr Arena, where 3711 spectators were in place for today's match. was the appointed referee with assistance provided by and Malte Bögebjerg. The match took place on neutral ground. Cry "havoc" and let loose the dogs of war! CrookOzofs will go to battle in a 4-5-1 formation. The following players took the field: Jarrett - Hugener, Kryvec, Glendenning, Tierney - Simões, Butler, Tessier, Stott, Plevin - van Hanegem.

Our studio analysts were correct. Schwäbisch has taken the field in a 3-5-2 alignment. The following players had been selected: Kutyło - Biehl, Veckenstedt, Puebla - Freiler, Bernhart, Kirlum, Kancsó, Valmoggia - van der Maar, Fibicher.

A titanic level of counter-attacking seemed to be the preferred strategy of CrookOzofs. Tullio Valmoggia came close to putting the visiting team one up 3 minutes into the match, following a solo raid down the middle, but Anthony Jarrett managed to tip the ball over. CrookOzofs created a good opportunity to score 7 minutes into the game when Ivan Tessier's hooked ball from the left created a scuffle in front of the goal, but the visitors' defenders eventually won out. Joakim Fibicher delivered a good free kick from an excellent position 16 minutes into the game, but luck wasn't on Schwäbisch's side this time and the ball went wide. Jochem van der Maar will have Excedrin Headache number 5 after heading home the hard corner kick from Joakim Fibicher after 26 minutes of play. I'm sure that making the score 0 - 1 will assuage him a bit, though. The crowd roared in delight as Sciapan Kryvec finished off a spectacular series of plays up the middle to even the score for CrookOzofs after 29 minutes. 1 - 1. Sjeng van Hanegem's technique was perfect on this sunny day and led to some beautiful tricks that fooled the defense. 33 minutes into the game, Schwäbisch's Joakim Fibicher missed an opportunity to take the lead from a penalty when he delivered the shot straight into the keeper's hands. With 34 minutes gone, a long pass from the defense of CrookOzofs resulted in a counter-attack that set Aidan Plevin free through the middle, but the keeper made a spectacular diving save. The home side put themselves ahead 2 - 1 after 35 minutes of hard work with a breakthrough from Sciapan Kryvec, who, all by his lonesome, came out of the right wing and hooked the ball over the visitors' keeper. The visiting team's Philibert Freiler was able to score the 2 - 2 equalizer with a header 39 minutes in, after some good work on the right. Jackson Stott really should have scored when he was chosen by fate to confront a wide open goal following a great flick by Sciapan Kryvec after a corner. With 43 minutes played, Schwäbisch's Yasar Bernhart received a yellow card for challenging a play with his cleats first. It was 2 - 2 at the break. The forty-five minutes were dominated by Schwäbisch, with an impressive 59 percent possession of the ball.

As the 60 minute mark approached, the Schwäbisch manager decided it was time for a substitution. Jochem van der Maar reluctantly made way for Timo Eilders. A counter-attack by CrookOzofs after 73 minutes could have resulted in a goal, but Freddie Glendenning, coming in on the left, waited too long to shoot. After 75 minutes, the Schwäbisch coach wanted to see a new face on the field, waving Arne Kirlum off. Marjan Bačković took his place. The Schwäbisch captaincy was handed to Joakim Fibicher. Schwäbisch did a good job holding on to the ball, with 59 percent of possession. We'll be back after these interminable commercial messages.

As neither team was able to score a late winner, the teams took to the field again for extra time. Though it was beautiful soccer, the home crowd did not enjoy Joakim Fibicher's goal after a run down the left with 95 minutes on the clock. Schwäbisch lead, 2 - 3. Tullio Valmoggia somehow managed to break free of his man on the left wing and only needed a relatively easy finish to bring Schwäbisch's lead up to 2 - 4. The crowd groaned when Lee Butler, having maneuvered his way down the right, fired the ball just wide and missed a great opportunity to pull one back for CrookOzofs. Sjeng van Hanegem performed admirably for CrookOzofs. Speaking of stinking up the place, Ivan Tessier sure smelled like the bottom of Batman's shoe after a night of crimefighting in Gotham. Schwäbisch's top performer was clearly Timo Eilders. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by Justin Veckenstedt today. The match ends 2 - 4.
