Saxons 1 - 4 bra-arg

3202 spectators had come to The Burial Mound this cloudy day. Köbi von Bose was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Jorge Escaleira and . Saxons decided to use a 4-5-1 set up. Lineup: av Teigum - Bonnafous, Nafzinger, Næs, Olguín - á Nesi, Carhuajulca, Aristotelous, Topp, Zaniewski - Andersons.

A 3-5-2 alignment was the formation of choice for bra-arg. Starters: Ilie - Demeulenaere, Juul, Alí - Torres, Richter-Hauser, Menezes, Aguado, Salvato - Krakevičius, Bogusław.

Today, bra-arg's strategy involved concentrating on the flanks for their attacks, taking advantage of their supernatural level with that tactic. Slack defending gave Saxons a chance to take the lead with 4 minutes played, but Tasos Aristotelous's cross from the left flank was fumbled in front of the goal and easily dealt with by the opposition. After 16 minutes, there was a bit of a mixup on the field as Saxons found themselves out of position and their organisation level dropped to solid. The home keeper expected a move to the right, but Julian Bogusław surprised him with a free kick aimed the other way 18 minutes into the match. 0 - 1 for bra-arg. 21 minutes into the match, the speedy Oskars Andersons easily outpaced Clodoaldo Aguado, chipped the keeper and made the score 1 - 1. 23 minutes into the game, Haroldo Menezes almost gave the visitors the lead, as he clipped a delicate lob over the keeper, but the ball glanced harmlessly off the crossbar. As the clock reached 30 minutes, Saxons decided to regroup. Óla Jákup 'Sidewinder' Næs gave Aníbal Olguín a little pat on the back as they changed positions on the pitch. 31 minutes into the match, the referee signalled for a Saxons substitution. Anselm Bellet came on for Aníbal Olguín. The guests took the lead 32 minutes into the match, after a right-side attack resulted in Paw Juul scoring to make it 1 - 2. 1 - 2 was the score after the first half. bra-arg claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 61 percent.

Despite his frustration resulting in the smashing of a few teacups, the coach of Saxons was able to get his message across, and raised Saxons's organisation to excellent. Julian Bogusław could have added one to the visitors' lead if his free kick had gone just a little lower. After 60 minutes, Saxons switched Andrzej Zaniewski with Henry 'Happy' Haraldsen, hoping for a quick impact on the pitch. Just a few inches to the right, and the visitors could have had a goal 64 minutes into the match. Julian Bogusław surely wishes he could do that free kick over again. Saxons needed a fresh pair of legs on the field, and after 70 minutes Johnny Nafzinger made way for Eyðgrímur 'Moustache Man' Jensen. 77 minutes into the match, the visitors put themselves ahead 1 - 3 as Fernão Torres finished off an attack from the left with a spectacular scissors kick. Attacking on the wings was the choice for bra-arg, and they were successfully passing the ball from the middle to the wings to attack. Jón av Teigum got a fingertip on Laimūnas Krakevičius's shot from the left 87 minutes in, and managed to keep the visitors from going up another goal. Players in bra-arg heard their coach's words ringing in their ears and steered their central attacks to the wings instead. With 88 minutes played, a quick exchange of passes on the left wing freed Julian Bogusław of bra-arg to slip through the defence and score another goal for the visitors. That made the score 1 - 4. The players of bra-arg now seemed to think the job was done and acted more defensively, just waiting for the ref to blow the final whistle. Possession in this half belonged to bra-arg, who controlled the ball 63 percent of the time.

Oskars Andersons performed admirably for Saxons. On the other hand, Jón av Teigum's play was disheartening. bra-arg's top performer was clearly Haroldo Menezes. Ion 'The Wall' Ilie on the other hand, had a terrible day. The match ends 1 - 4.
