Match

Summary

Play began with patient buildup from /sp/ but a slack pass allowed Madoka Titus to intercept, penetrate the final third, and play a through ball to Woody whose low shot within the box was saved well by Da Bears. /toy/ enjoyed the majority of possession from this point onward but looked vulnerable at times. After a quarter of an hour Torres pounced on a slack pass to unleash a shot from the edge of the box which left Ham Hands standing as it deflected off the post and back out into play. In the resultant foray Messi had a low effort with outside curve skim into the bottom left corner; /sp/ took the lead 1-0. Moments after play restarded, Orange Transparent Chainsaw went into the book for a poor challenge on George Costanza as the latter made a run down the left.

Just before the half-hour mark a /toy/ free kick from roughly 35 yards was lofted into the box by Madoka; Woody used his height to good effect to rise above >too much ass and head the ball beyond past Da Bears reach and into the goal for /toy/'s equaliser. A mazy run from Madoka from the left wing right into the /sp/ penalty area was key to /toy/'s second goal. Her pass to China Bootleg allowed him to shoot, but the shot was palmed away by Da stretching Bears. Woody was within yards of the rebound and tapped it in with ease to give /toy/ the lead after 35 minutes. It was /toy/ who maintained momentum after the goal, but a third was not forthcoming. Messi was nearly played clear through on goal after forty minutes but he was called offside. The match opened up in the dying stages of the first half; the last action was a speculative shot from Woody which went a couple of yards wide of the right post. /toy/ led at half time 2-1.

/hoc/ was booked nearly immediately after the restart for a slack tackle. The pace of the match slowed slightly and things became scrappy as both teams played patiently for an opener. /sp/ found a breakthrough after nearly an hour of play, as deft skill from Torres allowed him to dribble past one of the /toy/ back line and curve a shot past Ham Hands to give his side the equaliser. A counter-attack from /toy/ saw Woody break free on the left wing, cut into the penalty area and let fly a low drive which beat Da Bears but ricocheted off of the post and back into play. A Torres pass to Messi allowed the latter to break down the right and take the ball deep into the /toy/ half. He threaded a pass past several /toy/ defenders to allow Torres an opportunity to score. His shot deflected off of the stray foot of My Nugga and past the static Ham Hands to give the lead back to /sp/. /toy/ sought to get back on level terms, and Madoka had a shot from close range covered by Da Bears. Woody squandered an unmarked header from a good cross to head away from goal. One of the last chances of the match was a much better header from Woody, aimed low, which was saved excellently by Da Bears. /toy/'s pressure rewarded them a free kick from 25 yards deep into injury time. Woody's shot hit the wall and Cactus Owl's shot from the rebound was saved easily by Da Bears, meaning /sp/ were the winners of the 4chan Winter Cup and the first team to win two consecutive top-tier competitions. /toy/'s second place was their best ever 4chan Cup finish.
