It was a sunny day at the stadium today. For some players the sunny weather was bad news. It made Powerful and Quick players a bit sluggish. For Technical players, it was instead an advantage, allowing them to shine on the pitch. The following players had been selected: Lazar - Puyol, Montoya - Riquelme, Hernandez, Alcantara, Svankvist, Mara - Holland, Messia, Suarez.

Lineup: Aldini - Oben, Rojas - Lal, Martínez Conde, Uverskiy, Chodorov, Petrović - Berraja, Webster, Tapia.

As the teams spread out over the pitch, it became clear that they would both be using a 2-5-3 formation today. Chesterton saw most attack opportunities on the wings by using their extra-terrestrial ability to push the attack in the right direction. The guests took the lead 6 minutes into the match, after a right-side attack resulted in Petar Petrović scoring to make it 0 - 1. The home fans looked somber as they watched their team give up another goal, this one coming from their right as Ahmet Ziya Lal put one through the keeper's legs. 0 - 2 after 17 minutes. The visitors' Tauro Tapia took advantage of a mix-up between the home side's goalie and center backs 28 minutes into the match. 0 - 3 for Chesterton. The home team's task just got even harder after Thierry Rojas buried the penalty kick. Chesterton lead 0 - 4 after 36 minutes. The home crowd was briefly mollified when Luis 'Pistolero' Suarez reduced the lead to 1 - 4 after a brilliant midfield give-and-go through the middle. Chesterton already had the lead, so Petar Petrović probably won't be too disappointed that his speculative shot from the right 38 minutes in fell wide of the goal. Lionel 'Messi' Messia's Road Runner-esque speed was too much for Thierry Rojas who could only look on as the BarçaAjax player blasted one home. 2 - 4. The home club's fans got back into the match when Xavier 'Xavi' Hernandez broke through the visitors' central defense and caught their keeper napping, making it 3 - 4. Halftime score was 3 - 4. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that BarçaAjax had 55...55 percent possession. AH AH AH!

Big paper red cards were being held up by the opposing supporters with 75 minutes on the clock after Tzuf Chodorov's mistimed tackle from behind. The referee only showed the Chesterton player a yellow card though. Just a few inches to the right, and the visitors could have had a goal in minute 79. Thierry Rojas was overheard by some in the stands blaming either Grebulon or sunspots, depending on their individual loyalties. Johan 'Cruyff' Holland pulled a rabbit out of his hat as he wove through the guest's entire central defense and put the 4 - 4 equalizer away after 80 minutes. After 82 minutes, Chesterton's lack of experience resulted in the team's loss of their edge at the end of the game. The 84 minute mark saw the home team take a 5 - 4 lead after a breaking through on the left. The scorer for BarçaAjax was Johan 'Cruyff' Holland. The home team will be cursing Óscar Martínez Conde for weeks; he finished off a great pass from the left, knocking it past the keeper without a problem 85 minutes in. It's anyone's game now! 5 - 5. The players were tired, but when the referee announced that there would be 3 minutes of added time, they welcomed the extra opportunity to make an impact. The match ends 5 - 5. The forty-five minutes were dominated by BarçaAjax, with an impressive 52 percent possession of the ball.

BarçaAjax's top performer was clearly Juan 'Romän' Riquelme. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because Gerard 'Deulofeu' Lazar seemed to stumble all over the pitch. The most outstanding Chesterton player was without a doubt Andy Webster. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by Adib Berraja today.
