ArtPa 7 - 1 united

Due to an all-day shower, 20390 paying spectators got to see the game on a field-turned-swamp at A-StaDioN. Gwenaël Chevrel was the appointed referee. Our studio analysts were correct. ArtPa has taken the field in a 3-5-2 alignment. The following players took the field: Käpyaho - Pletcher, Toskas, Pinon - Andie Jensen, Frouws, Mutlu, Rzońca, Mankó - Qaramyan, Skals Jensen.

After thorough analysis and consultation of astrological charts, united decided to go with a 4-4-2 formation. Lineup: Rantee - Astala, Brygger, Spasić, Smirnov - Puistonen, Salanne, Kinosmaa, Kämi - Riestola, Nietula.

Today, united's strategy involved concentrating on the flanks for their attacks, taking advantage of their formidable ability. The home side put themselves ahead 1 - 0 after 17 minutes of hard work with a breakthrough from F. Skals Jensen, who, all by his lonesome, came out of the right wing and hooked the ball over the visitors' keeper. united had to make a substitution after 24 minutes. M. Astala apparently was hit by a thrown bottle of Schlitz by one of the opposing players' fans, and now reeks of blood and bad beer. While the coach remonstrated with the side official about the situation, R. Hauhia finished his warmups and came on. After 36 minutes, ArtPa were awarded a free kick. Rather than shooting straight at goal, the kicker went for an indirect variant which seemed to take his teammates a bit by surprise. N. Toskas did manage a finish, but from an awkward position, sending the ball out of bounds. A swat on the tuchus is all it took to keep united's R. Hauhia in the match after injuring his achilles tendon. The ball is in play and we're underway again after 39 minutes have been played. Was it the hair gel? Was it a gift from the gods? Either way, the faithful won't care. Soaring like a Saturn V, R. Hauhia somehow got his head on a J. Kinosmaa moonshot from the corner and buried it in the back of the net. What grace! What power! Plant the flag for united, Neil Armstrong! The score is now 1 - 1. The 42 minute mark saw the home team take a 2 - 1 lead after a breaking through on the left. The scorer for ArtPa was F. Skals Jensen. P. Ruti was called on to replace united's J. Nietula after 43 minutes following a nasty collision. 44 minutes had passed when ArtPa put themselves up 3 - 1 after the visiting defenders lost the ball to G. Qaramyan, who came up from the left and proceeded to easily go around the goalkeeper and knock the ball home. 3 - 1 was the score after the first half. ArtPa set the tempo, maintaining 78 percent of possession.

Cheers filled the stadium as N. Toskas broke through the visitors' central defense to put away the 4 - 1 goal for ArtPa. ArtPa's players now seemed to think the job was done and acted more defensively, just waiting for the ref to blow the final whistle. N. Toskas didn't let the weather get him down and made some great moves on the field in spite of the rain. Given a free kick from a ways out after 68 minutes, ArtPa sent an arching ball into the penalty box. It was headed clear, but G. Qaramyan was waiting just outside the area and fired it home to make it 5 - 1. C. Mutlu should probably have put his team up another goal after 78 minutes, but some great goalkeeping by S. Rantee kept the visitors in the game. 79 minutes into the match, the visitors' central line of defense had to look on as F. Skals Jensen ran straight through, knocking one home to make it 6 - 1 for ArtPa. That made three goals for F. Skals Jensen. He'll be taking the match ball home with him having scored a hattrick! ArtPa solidified their lead at the 81 minute mark, as J. Mankó snaked the ball through the central line of defense and finished for 7 - 1. ArtPa's G. Qaramyan wanted to play on, but after 85 minutes the decision was made to give K. Götte a chance in his place. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that ArtPa would have 84 percent possession in this half was spot on!

Most important ArtPa player was K. Götte. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because P. Pinon seemed to stumble all over the pitch. The most outstanding united player was without a doubt J. Kinosmaa. I can't remember S. Rantee ever having a worse night than he just had. The match ends 7 - 1.
