X-Team 3 - 1 EVILinc

Overcast weather free of rain made for a crowd turnout of 2354 at Ecaterina Teodoroiu today. Wilfried Heidegger was the appointed referee with assistance provided by and Hauke Hutwelker. A 5-4-1 alignment was the formation of choice for X-Team. The following players took the field: Stanciu - Oprea, Chirilă, Secară, Pădure, Gyllenbratt - Şnaider, San Millán Díez, Neaga, Schweitzer - Kolesnik.

EVILinc had chosen a strategic 5-5-0 formation. Starters: Chí Minh - Koula, Tinozzi, Naik, Scott, Roberts - Hutton, Baratović, McMullan, Faulkner, Skipper -.

X-Team were relying on their mythical ability to counter-attack. Some great play up the middle by X-Team led to a chance for Ştefan 'The Artist' Neaga to score after 13 minutes, but the shot hit the crossbar. After 24 minutes of play, Ivan Schweitzer gave the home team a 1 - 0 lead after an attack coming in from the right. 26 minutes in, EVILinc appeared unsure on how to play and their organisation was only weak. Almost all the way down to the corner flag, X-Team's Ivan Schweitzer somehow managed to get a perfect pass into the middle, impossible to miss for Yuriy 'Flash' Kolesnik, who struck for 2 - 0. After this, you could see that the players of X-Team were more interested in killing time than scoring more goals. X-Team put themselves up 3 - 0 when Mihail-Dan 'Catcher In The' Secară broke through on the right, leaving the entire defence trailing in his wake. 3 - 0 was the score after the first half. X-Team had most of the ball, with 60 percent of possession.

Despite his frustration resulting in the smashing of a few teacups, the coach of EVILinc was able to get his message across, and raised EVILinc's organisation to solid. Ivan Schweitzer could have put X-Team up one more, but he fired into the side netting after breaking free on the left after 59 minutes. 61 minutes into the game, EVILinc seemed a little tentative in their play as their organization fell to passable. A great save by keeper Lê Chí Minh after 65 minutes kept the visitors in the game after Claudiu Oprea struck from the left with a real cannonball. A well placed corner kick from Ian Faulkner was followed by Alexander Roberts's hard but accurate header. The well executed routine resulted in a goal for EVILinc, the score now 3 - 1. The opposing supporters gave the referee an earful when he only gave Miroslav Baratović from EVILinc a yellow card after a mistimed challenge from behind 86 minutes into the game. That was far too lenient! Ivan Schweitzer could have increased the lead after 88 minutes, but his shot hit the post after a nice combination in the middle of the park. Alexandru Manolache was called on to replace X-Team's Daniel Pădure after 89 minutes following a nasty collision. X-Team enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 57 percent of possession.

X-Team's best player was Álvaro 'Pajarito' San Millán Díez. On the other hand, Alexandru Manolache's play was disheartening. Most important EVILinc player was Miroslav Baratović. However, Jamie Scott made a disastrous appearance. The match ends 3 - 1.
