MSO 3 - 9 Tranquebar

The crowd of 2148 turning up at MS Park today were greeted with some nasty showers of rain. Salvatore Ghidoni was the appointed referee with assistance provided by and . MSO started off with a 2-5-3 lineup. The following players took the field: Dahlberg - Zaabalawy, Magnusson - Rotoklis, Therkelsen, Józsa, Hedegaard, Chrzan - André, Luccarini, Merreot.

Tranquebar tactics involved an interesting 2-5-3 combination. Lineup: Nataraj - Mubeen, Kota - Trivedi, Jindal, Sharma, Agrawal, Wasif - Reddy, Variar, Prabhu.

Tranquebar's Manoj 'Punjabi Tiger' Prabhu gave the visitors a 0 - 1 lead after 9 minutes with a superb strike from the right. Nestoras Rotoklis showed the skills that make him a real crowd pleaser as he, after 19 minutes, wove through the guests' entire central defence and put the 1 - 1 equaliser away. With 20 minutes played, Muthupandi 'Tamil Warrior' Variar of Tranquebar fell dramatically just outside the penalty area. However, the referee was unimpressed, and booked him for diving. Tranquebar's Manoj 'Punjabi Tiger' Prabhu managed to lose the defenders as he advanced down the right wing and scored, putting the visitors ahead after 23 minutes. 1 - 2. After 27 minutes of play, Łukasz Chrzan evened things up for MSO with an impressive goal coming up the middle. 2 - 2. Heinz Therkelsen was having a great game - if anything the pouring rain seemed to be spurring him on! 2 - 3 was the score with 30 minutes played, after Manish Kota cut through the central defence and chipped home a goal for Tranquebar. After 37 minutes, an incisive pass through the middle gave Manoj 'Punjabi Tiger' Prabhu a chance to increase the lead for Tranquebar, and he did not disappoint. The score was then 2 - 4. By then Manoj 'Punjabi Tiger' Prabhu had scored three goals - a hat trick! The teams went for the halftime break at 2 - 4. Possession in this half belonged to Tranquebar, who controlled the ball 57 percent of the time.

The Tranquebar free kick 54 minutes into the match seemed wasted, as the shot was both short and off target. But was this actually a plan? The ball landed at the feet of Manoj 'Punjabi Tiger' Prabhu, who was completely unmarked in the box. That's 2 - 5! By now, the players in Tranquebar felt that victory was guaranteed and began to play it safe, focusing on defence and not risking too much going forward. 71 minutes in, MSO's Torsten Hedegaard received a yellow card for going into a challenge studs first. 73 minutes into the match, MSO's Sebastian Merreot collected a ball sent down the right and put it in the back of the net, narrowing the score to 3 - 5. Manish Kota received a delicate pass through the home side's central defence after 79 minutes, and chipped it past the flailing keeper to score making it 3 - 6. The Tranquebar fans went wild, whilst the home fans started to think about leaving early. A late sliding challenge from Torsten Hedegaard was deemed to be his second yellow card offence by the referee, resulting in him being sent off, and MSO left a man down. After 83 minutes, Tranquebar raised their score by one when Yasin Wasif's dangerous low cross was cleverly tucked in at the near post by Rajinikanth 'Foggy' Reddy. 3 - 7. Against a lesser team, Tranquebar could very well have succeeded with their smart indirect free kick routine after 84 minutes. A trio of passes took the ball all the way past the defenders, but by then the intended recipient was already blocked off and the keeper could make a leisurely save. After 86 minutes, Tranquebar's Narendra 'Khalifah' Jindal burst through the central defence and let loose a cannonball of a shot, scoring for 3 - 8. After 87 minutes a combination in the middle resulted in a through ball for Muthupandi 'Tamil Warrior' Variar who increased Tranquebar's lead to 3 - 9. Tranquebar claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 56 percent.

Damien André performed admirably for MSO. Giovanbattista Luccarini was a disappointment, however. The most dominating Tranquebar player was without a doubt Rajinikanth 'Foggy' Reddy. Faisal Mubeen turned in a dismal performance, however. The match ends 3 - 9.
