harrisons 2 - 5 Grilled

Overcast weather free of rain made for a crowd turnout of 3772 at cave arena today. Rodrigo Almanza was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Magnus Ulfsson and Albin Łuszczyński. Lineup: Hutchinson - Sabaj, Campodafeira, Flanke, Rokkos, Kowzan - Giampaolo, Zalal - van der Hoff, Bynum, Breitling.

The following players took the field: Dob - Abdul Majid, Tarin - Velho, Tran, Xin Seng, Webb, Mottl - Thevar, Jian Hui, Xin Lee.

harrison's cave f.c. started the game in a 5-2-3 formation, whereas Grilled Birds lined up in a 2-5-3 formation. harrisons used their solid skill at pressing to cut off the attack angles of their opponents all over the field. Grilled seemed to prefer attacking in the middle, taking advantage of their extra-terrestrial level with that tactic. The referee showed Grilled's Prokop Mottl the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. The visiting Dante Tran was booed thoroughly by the home crowd 10 minutes into the game, after he broke through the middle and scored, resulting in the visitors taking the lead. 0 - 1 was the score. After 12 minutes, harrisons raised their score by one when Yeter 'Coach' Zalal's dangerous low cross was cleverly tucked in at the near post by Jikke van der Hoff. 1 - 1. At this time in the match, harrisons were using their skill at pressing to successfully stifle the game. The Grilled free kick 21 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 Prokop Mottl, who was completely unmarked in the box. That's 1 - 2! harrisons pressed their opponents, causing the game to be a bit of a stalemate at times. After 34 minutes, Grilled's Yee Jian Hui burst through the central defence and let loose a cannonball of a shot, scoring for 1 - 3. Halftime score was 1 - 3. Grilled enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 83 percent of possession.

Content with how the game was proceeding, the Grilled coach let Dan Seng replace Massoud Dob after 46 minutes. The pressing tactics used by harrisons were successful as the ball remained close to the half way line at all times. Grilled players heard their coach's words ringing in their ears and steered their wing attacks to the middle instead. Chirag Thevar received a delicate pass through the home side's central defence after 63 minutes, and chipped it past the flailing keeper to score making it 1 - 4. The Grilled fans went wild, whilst the home fans started to think about leaving early. harrisons's talent at pressing frustrated the spectators as the game became a dire midfield struggle. 77 minutes into the game a free kick by Jérémy Tarin found its way through the home side's poorly assembled defensive formation, making Grilled's lead 1 - 5. Mohd Jafni Abdul Majid wanted to play on, but the Grilled coach had other ideas, and he was replaced 80 minutes into the game by 洸平 (Kohei) 奥谷 (Okuya). 80 minutes into the game, Dominique Bynum finished off a harrisons left wing counterattack, making the score 2 - 5. With 81 minutes played, Jérémy Tarin of Grilled fell dramatically just outside the penalty area. However, the referee was unimpressed, and booked him for diving. The referee decided to let play continue for an additional 3 minutes beyond the regular 90 minutes. The match ends 2 - 5. Grilled claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 87 percent.

The most dominating harrisons player was without a doubt Karsten 'The Power' Breitling. On the other hand, Orlando Hutchinson's play was disheartening. Grilled's best player was Chu Xin Lee. However, Dan Seng made a disastrous appearance.
