Cabuie 1 - 0 Cobras

The crowd of 1089 turning up at Ashwick today were greeted with some nasty showers of rain. Wiesław Koisar was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Giggino Landi and Han IJsbrandij. Cabuie tactics involved an interesting 3-5-2 combination. The following players took the field: Giacalone - Shearer, Bravo, Lambert - Encuţu, Bouwhuis, Lwali, Cleland, Wong - Münstereifel, Lenarčić.

Cobras had chosen a strategic 5-5-0 formation. Starters: Nazaré - Głuszak, Rikilucas, Galuvao, Lukas, Sadler - Alves, Pihema, Wasser, Gibbs, Coulson -.

The strategy for Cobras was to use their passable ability to press. Cabuie's Islem Lwali left the field after 13 minutes because of a nasty blow to the shin. His replacement was Boris O'Connor. Cabuie's Hayden Lambert had to watch the rest of the game from the sidelines, after twisting his ankle with 28 minutes having been played. Epalahame Billson was the replacement. What was Mikey Shearer thinking? That's what everyone wondered when, for no apparent reason, he shot a cross pass over his own penalty area, giving Steve 'Cool Hand' Coulson an extra chance, but unfortunately for Cobras, he didn't get the shot right. Vincent Wasser would have preferred to play on, but his coach decided otherwise. Giovanni Battista Scuffi entered the game for Cobras as the match clock showed 38 minutes. Žarko Lenarčić could have put Cabuie into the lead after 38 minutes, but the free kick went just wide. The opposing supporters gave the referee an earful when he only gave Joe Wong from Cabuie a yellow card after a mistimed challenge from behind 39 minutes into the game. That was far too lenient! 41 minutes had elapsed when a great chance for Cabuie to take the lead after a good cross from the right found Timothy-Patrick Münstereifel alone with the keeper, but he chipped it to the wrong side of the post. 0 - 0 was the score after the first half. Cabuie had most of the ball, with 68 percent of possession.

Cobras pressed their opponents, causing the game to be a bit of a stalemate at times. With 59 minutes played, Cabuie's well-worked indirect free kick caused havoc in the penalty area, and when the ball eventually fell to Carlos Norberto Bravo he gleefully slotted the ball home to make it 1 - 0. At this time in the match, Cobras were using their skill at pressing to successfully stifle the game. The rain made it hard for players like Jakub 'Grizzly' Głuszak to show their technical control of the ball on this soggy day. A great save by keeper Jamir Nazaré after 79 minutes kept the visitors in the game after Žarko Lenarčić struck from the left with a real cannonball. Cabuie claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 71 percent.

Most important Cabuie player was Žarko Lenarčić. Epalahame Billson on the other hand, had a terrible day. Steve 'Cool Hand' Coulson performed admirably for Cobras. Jamir Nazaré turned in a dismal performance, however. The match ends 1 - 0.
