The spectators at the stadium today were in for an afternoon of sunshine. The intense heat made it hard for players relying on strength or speed to shine. On the other hand, it provided perfect conditions for the more technical players. Lineup: Ramos Costa - Tejería, de Wijkersloot, Girardin - Yan, Roomer, Spruijt, van der Ham, Biesheuvel - Heistek, Gracia.

They fielded: Coenegracht - Taboin, Reis, Vellemäe - Zima, Witcher, Kiszi, Grymov - Amorim, Miranda, Tucano.

de raketjes started the game in a 3-5-2 formation, whereas Mengo/Várzea Medicine 3012 lined up in a 3-4-3. Mengo/Várzea displayed their ability to play creatively. Gérard Heistek is making an astonishing dash. The fans are chanting his name. You can hear it reverberate around the stadium. Now a manic sprint up the middle and into the box. Oh! He's thrown open the door! He's thrown open the door, shot the ball through, and slammed the door shut on Mr. Tumnus! raketjes has taken the lead 17 minutes into the match, 1 to 0. There'll be no Turkish Delight after the match for the keeper! Mengo/Várzea had a magnificent opportunity with 19 minutes gone as Derrick Witcher hit the ball hard from the edge of the penalty box. However, the shot went wide. 24 minutes into the match, Mengo/Várzea's José Luiz Miranda demonstrated his running prowess as he raced past his defender and passed the ball to Otoniel Amorim who chipped it in for 1 - 1. The home side put themselves ahead 2 - 1 after 30 minutes of hard work with a breakthrough from Tokerau Gracia, who, all by his lonesome, came out of the right wing and hooked the ball over the visitors' keeper. The referee showed Mengo/Várzea's Derrick Witcher the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. 2 - 1 was the halftime score. Mengo/Várzea did a good job holding on to the ball, with 51 percent of possession. We'll be back after these interminable commercial messages.

Demilio Yan had a fantastic opportunity to put raketjes up another goal 50 minutes into the match, but he fired just over the crossbar. A cross coming in on the right hand side left José Luiz Miranda alone in front of the goal after 51 minutes but his shot wasn't taken well. Things were going from bad to worse for the visitors. Tokerau Gracia was able to squirm through the central defense after 69 minutes and score, bringing the lead to 3 - 1. After 72 minutes, raketjes began to show their lack of experience and they threatened to wilt under the heavy pressure from their opposition. What was Nikolay Grymov thinking? That's what everyone wondered when, for no apparent reason, he shot a cross pass over his own penalty area, giving Tokerau Gracia an extra chance, but unfortunately for raketjes, he didn't get the shot right. The home team's lead was reduced to 3 - 2 after Mengo/Várzea's José Luiz Miranda took advantage of a misunderstanding in the center of the defense. Big paper red cards were being held up by the opposing supporters with 80 minutes on the clock after Otoniel Amorim's mistimed tackle from behind. The referee only showed the Mengo/Várzea player a yellow card though. Given a free kick from an impossible angle, Mengo/Várzea went for a play that loyal fans may recognize from training. A square ball surprised the defense and let Otoniel Amorim slip through at goal. He hit it first time, making the score 3 - 3, 83 minutes into the game. raketjes's Remon Biesheuvel placed the ball right at his teammate's feet after a corner, but Jacinto Tejería couldn't finish. As the match nears its end, the referee deemed it appropriate to add 2 minutes as stoppage time. The match ends 3 - 3. Neither team was controlling possession at this point in the match.

raketjes's best player was Jean-Marc Spruijt. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because Francisco Augusto Ramos Costa seemed to stumble all over the pitch. Mengo/Várzea's top performer was clearly László Kiszi. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by Sämi Zima today.
