Review for round 6. Hope you enjoy it.
Thanks soc


Clean Sheets. And hattricks. That pretty much sums up Round 6 where we saw plenty of both in 9 matches plus 4 postponed games.

Division 1
FEAR vs Angry Bulls
It looked like a goalless first half, but it changed in the last seconds when FEAR was in attack. With a few seconds left Splat tried to clear the ball and with help from a few opponents the ball eventually ended at Müllérsh. He didn’t let this opportunity go so he gave Angry Bulls the halftime lead.
The late goal seemed to have its influence on FEAR because they got destroyed in the second half. It only took Müllérsh 7 seconds before he scored again and not a minute later ESPierre made it 3-0. FEAR started to attack without paying any attention to Müllérsh, so he could score on an empty goal after splat conquered the ball in defence. FEAR was dissolved and with only 4 seconds in-between Angry Bulls managed to score a further 2 goals. First by ESPierre and then Müllérsh again. Müllérsh scored another 2 goals and ended with a double hattrick in an 8-0 win for Angry Bulls and a clean sheet for Teddie. An impressive win but also helped by an opponent who never entered the pitch for second half.

Excellents vs Seeders 0-3 (0-0)
Winning all matches so far Seeders has been unstoppable so it was quite a task waiting for Excellents. The Polish team held their defensive line very well and went to halftime with 0-0.
That changed a minute in to the second half when Yannex gave Seeders the lead. Isco tried to find a gap between Azure and Piowek and it worked as Azure couldn’t clear the ball forward but instead shot it right to Yannex who reacted quickly and shot it behind lajz in goal. Seeders are very dominant when being in attack and it paid off as they got another goal with 2 minutes left. Isco cleverly waited for the defenders to make a move, then passed to Yannex who caught lajz on the wrong foot. Yannex finished Excellents off and got his hattrick in the last 30 seconds with a more random goal. A safe 3-0 win for Seeders with clean sheet to shaxlele.

Blue Panthers vs archNemeses
When Blue Panthers faced archNemeses we had to wait to second half before the goals arrived. That happened only 12 seconds in when archNemeses got the lead. KaLaJaN1 had the opportunity to clear through the mid but waited and could then see his clearance being blocked by Lakii who got the ball in the net. Lakii was on it again in the last 2 minutes as he scored on an empty goal. He saw an opportunity to run behind KaLaJaN1 which was seen by whiplash who made the pass to get an easy assist. Lakii also got his hattrick, and his second shot on an empty goal, in the last 5 seconds when Blue Panthers tried everything to get a goal. 3-0 to archNemeses and clean sheet to Per.

Division 2
Elite69 vs Storm Wolves
After 3 losses Elite69 has got points in the last 2 matches where they through great comebacks got a draw in both. Now they had to try to get a win against Storm Wolves who also have had a struggling start of the season. Storm Wolves made a high pressure from the start and had long attacks but lacked the final percentages to get a goal. Elite69 also had a few chances but overall it was a big lead in possession to Storm Wolves who must have been frustrated that they didn’t manage to get a goal before halftime.
Second half also started with a few big chances to Storm Wolves but goalkeeper forsbi played a great match and made sure opponents couldn’t get the ball behind him. Elite69 also had big chances but it looked like one of those matches where the ball simply wouldn’t go in. That was the case until the last minute where Elite69 caught Storm Wolves off guard and ended with 3vs1 situation. Bot rushed back to help but could eventually see aeRo firing a shot on goal without leaving any chances to Impaciente in goal. Luckily for Impaciente, and very symptomatically for Elite69, the shot was saved by doupi who got in the way of his teammates shot and made it hit the post instead. At the end it didn’t matter much as Ferry was ready to tap in the ball so Elite69 got their 1-0 lead. The dramatic goal was too much for aeRo who asked to be subbed for “muddy” reasons. His teammates weren’t convinced but eventually aeRo was replaced by Bonaparte. He helped his team secure a 1-0 win so first victory for them and a clean sheet to forsbi.

White Walkers vs Pablo Haxobar
Both teams on 6 points before the match so a win was important. White Walkers got the best start and Cede gave his team the lead after a well-placed shot. Pablo Haxobar tried to fight back but what looked like an attack instead ended in a 2vs1 situation for White Walkers. Goalkeeper Saviola didn’t manage to keep ball in corner and as Hannes and Herna wasn’t back in defence yet it was easy for Cede to score his second of the match.
Cede completed his hattrick after 2 minutes of second half. Pablo Haxobar took a risk in attack and that gave White Walkers another 2vs1 situation. They took advantage of that as Wenell gave Cede the opportunity to score on an empty goal. Cede wasn’t done yet as he scored another time after a duel in front of goal. Saviola did his best to keep the ball out but eventually he couldn’t do much alone against 2 players from White Walkers. Wenell ended the scorings with a spam goal securing White Walkers a nice 5-0 win against a shaky Pablo Haxobar. Clean sheet to Smurf2.

Invincible vs H2K
H2K have had a good run in Division 2 so far and with a win they would stay in top 2. They got a good start as FearMe scored a nice goal with around 30 seconds left of the half. He received a pass from Lozano and beat Kissberry in goal.
We also had to wait a long time for a goal in second half. Pjanić was subbed in at halftime and he lured and waited for an opportunity to counter as Invincible had to take some risks to get the equaliser. The luring paid off with 15 seconds left as a clearance gave him the chance to score on an empty goal. He didn’t miss and secured H2K a 2-0 win with first clean sheet of the season to Rizzoli.

Bronze4Life vs Balls Be Flyin' 3-1 (2-0)
The current leaders of Division 2 walked into this match against Balls Be Flyin' with confidence after winning 4-0 in their last match. Team captain Muris 9 scored the first goal of the game after a good pass from Maddude. With 30 seconds left Bronze4Life scored again after TotalPlayer failed to clear the ball. Rosemaryy found Muris 9 who scored his second goal of the match.
In the second half Balls Be Flyin' tried to get back in the match but didn’t have much luck. After 4 minutes Bronze4Life sealed the game when Muris 9 got his hattrick. This time after a very good attack with fast passes and shots leaving TotalPlayer without any chance. Not long after the 3-0 goal kAT had a nice shot which went in behind kot. The 1-3 goal didn’t change much though and Bronze4Life continue their dominance in Division 2.

Disneylanders vs Ajhax
Streamed match of the round didn’t give us many goals but what a game it was. Disneylanders dominated first half and they got a lead through Taziek who scored on Ekstör who played a great game in goal. The goal from Taziek came out of nowhere and didn’t leave Ajhax many chances to prevent it and being behind 0-1 at halftime.
Second half had Ajhax written all over the place. They had most possession and most shots at goal, but Duke was doing everything in his power to prevent Ajhax from scoring. It must have been frustrating for Ajhax to see impressive attacks being saved all the time, but the team didn’t give up and kept trying to the very end. With around 30 seconds left Ajhax had 2 chances to score but the first one missed and the second was again saved by duke. It ended with a 1-0 win for Disneylanders and a very well-earned clean sheet for Duke.

The Chosen ONE vs Super Kickers 2018
We didn’t get any goals in an even first half where The Chosen ONE had most possession, but Super Kickers 2018 had the biggest chances to score. Especially Runi had a few nice shots but they didn’t get pass the strong goalkeeper Vidalo. No changes in line up for second half. Not everyone among the spectators were thrilled with that decision but the captains decide, and no changes were made.
Super Kickers 2018 seemed to be most satisfied with a draw as it was The Chosen ONE that pressured high and started attacking for the goal. They had a few great chances but nothing TemplleGoku couldn’t save so it ended 0-0 with clean sheets to TemplleGoku and Vidalo.

Matches from previous rounds
Excellents vs Blue Panthers 3-2 (1-0)
After losing the regular match of this round Blue Panthers were still without any points before their postponed match against Excellents. It didn’t start to well for the Spanish team as Excellents got the lead after great work from La Sombra. A clever wall bounce pass tricked both KaLaJaN1 and Klose making it easy for piowek to score.
It got even better for Excellents a minute in to second half as La Sombra scored to 2-0. KaLaJaN1 ended in a spam duel in front of goal with 2 opponents which was too much, and the ball went past him in the end. Blue Panthers responded quickly and got back in the game with a nice goal. They took advantage of a 2vs1 situation and with a great pass from Klose it was easy for Pero que to score. The goal was a confidence boost for the panthers that now could smell blood from opponents. They tried their best to score and succeeded through an own goal from piowek after a duel in front of goal. It looked like the first point of the season for Blue Panthers, but that was brutally taken away with only 2 seconds left of the clock. A high pressure from Excellents ended with the ball dropping down in front of La Sombra who could tap it in for a 3-2 win.

archNemeses vs Skins 3-0 (1-0)
With a 3-0 win in regular match archNemeses was all fired up against Skins who had their match wildcarded. After 4 minutes archNemeses got the lead after an own goal. MARBLE7 tried to clear but the ball ended at Lakii who shot at goal. That surprised Skinny who through the post scraped the ball into his own net.
At almost the exact same time archNemeses got the 2-0 lead in second half. Skinny was left alone against 3 players and at the end Lakii got it past the goalkeeper. Whiplash sealed the victory with 15 seconds left and secured archNemeses an impressive 3-0 win. A nice all-around performance from the team with a clean sheet to Per in goal. His second of the day.

Guns N’ Moses vs FEAR 5-1 (2-1)
Vak was on fire against FEAR and after 48 seconds he scored his first goal of the match. He caught goalkeeper mads off guard and with a nice shot through the wall he shot the ball in an empty net. After 2 minutes Saky proved that his reflexes work as he quickly reacted to a failed clearance from GirlontaR. The ball ping ponged from P4ER to GirlontaR to Saky and mads had no chance in goal. GirlontaR fixed his mistake later as he helped FEAR get back in the match. He won a spam duel against LaggerMet in front of goal and scored to 1-2.
Second half started quietly but with 2 minutes left the goals arrived. First by a very well combined goal for Guns N’ Moses where P4ER in the end got the last touch on the ball. A great team goal where all the attacking players were involved. Vak got his second a minute later after another good goal. Saky tricked mads and passed the ball to Vak who had an easy shot. He wasn’t done yet and got his hattrick with 5 seconds left. This time with another great team goal. P4ER juked an opponent, passed to Saky who quickly passed it through to Vak who with another fast action shot and left mads with no chance. A beautiful goal showing how good Guns N’ Moses are.

Ajhax vs Invincible 4-1 (0-0)
After a goalless first half the goals came flying in second when Ajhax faced Invincible. Nikolazio got the first goal as he gave Invincible the best start. After 4 minutes Ajhax answered back as ShimShon scored after a nice pass from Lyreco. ShimShon had another goal and have Ajhax the lead after another pass from Lyreco. This time the pass was intercepted by goalkeeper Kissberry, but his clearance went right at ShimShon who could score easily. Ajhax took advantage of their momentum and got a third goal inside a minute. This time it was another duel between Kissberry and ShimShon and it was hard to see who had the last touch of the ball. It wasn’t later when ShimShon definitely got his hattrick securing Ajhax a nice 4-1 win.
