País dels Pirineus - UCVRC

34 The referee signals the end of the match. Victory to the home side, with a score of 23 - 20.
33 Baltazar Rocha hits the ball really high. It sails over the posts. But the flags stay down. The touch judges say it was wide. It was hard to tell from here, but they were well positioned. He can't believe he's missed it!
32 Iban Casado steps up to take his shot at goal. He pauses, not taking his eye off the ball. He takes a slow run-up and hits the ball. He's struck it well, but the wind seems to carry it off to the left. It strikes the post, but bounces the right way! He scores, but only just!
31 Gábor Pálikás lines up his shot to a barrage of booing from the opposition fans. I never like to see that. I don't know if they were effective or not, but he's missed it.
30 The ball seems to wobble on the tee just as Abel Escudero strikes it. As a result, his direction is off and the ball drifts wide.
29 There's a lot of pressure on Joan Abelló as he steps up to the ball. He glances up at the posts before running at the ball. He kicks it hard, but it doesn't have great control. He misses, and misses badly. He looks devastated. He knows that at this stage every mistake is an important one.
28 Gaspar Ruiz takes the ball and sets it on the tee. He steps backward and lines the shot up. He strikes it well, but I think the wind is stronger than he realised. The ball sails past the right hand post. That could be an expensive miscalculation on Gaspar Ruiz's part!
27 Publio Menéndez's shot looks to be on target, but a gust of wind catches it at the last second and it drifts off to the left of the posts.
26 A collective groan echoes around the stands as Gaspar Casero's attempt drifts wide of the uprights.
25 Christian Caste lines up his shot and runs, striking the ball. It looks like it came off the side of his boot slightly. It's drifting to the right, and he's watching it all the way. He doesn't look confident. But the ball just manages to stay between the posts, and the touch judges' flags are up!
24 Antonio Klener takes his time, knowing just how important this kick could be for his team. It's time well spent as the ball sails between the uprights!
23 Auguste Gianni steps up to take his shot at goal. He pauses, not taking his eye off the ball. He takes a slow run-up and hits the ball. He's struck it well, but the wind seems to carry it off to the left. It strikes the post, but bounces the right way! He scores, but only just!
22 It's a perfect strike! The ball goes straight between the uprights. The relief is written all over Claudio Amitrano's face. I think he's glad to get that over with!

Still a draw at the end of the extra-time. Time for the place-kicking competition!
20Christian Caste gets the ball out of the ruck and dummies a pass before setting off on his own. He outpaces Gaspar Casero, but seeing no way through he passes to Artur Nogueira, who fumbles the ball before dropping it. Scrum to País dels Pirineus.
19UCVRC have retained possession as their players were quick and picked up the loose ball. They'll be able to attack again
18Christian Caste stumbles on a patch of uneven turf as he goes to pass the ball and Mose Lawrence has to reach down to try to take the ball on his shoelaces..
Mose Lawrence can't take that low ball cleanly, did he knock it on, or did it come off his foot? That is for the ref to decide.
17Thats good ball off the top of the lineout for UCVRC. Joan Abelló taps the ball down to his scrum half.
16País dels Pirineus try to move the ball wide. The ball is passed from Gaspar Casero to Ernesto Galán to Darren Glover to Iban Casado. It's all too lateral, and a bit too obvious though, and Christian Caste is ready and waiting. They'll need to be a bit more creative than that to break down the defence.
15Good lineout for País dels Pirineus. The hooker finds his man perfectly, and Gregorio Soto wins the ball in the air.
14UCVRC have an overlap on the right. Looks like they've spotted it too. Publio Menéndez fires a quick pass off to Árpád Énekes who flicks the ball on to Kevin Bakker. He's rushed the pass though, and the ball evades the grasp of Artur Nogueira. That was a good scoring opportunity gone to waste.
13UCVRC have retained possession as their players were quick and picked up the loose ball. They'll be able to attack again
12Mick Winch is running down the touchline. He seems to be unmarked, but Rodrigo Acuoa is there to pounce.
11UCVRC have retained possession as their players were quick and picked up the loose ball. They'll be able to attack again
10Gábor Pálikás clearly wasn't expecting Baltazar Rocha's pass there. The ball goes sailing past him as he vainly fumbles for it.
9The ball is loose and bouncing around..
The ball takes a lucky bounce straight into the welcoming arms of a UCVRC player.

2Oh no! There is chaos on the field as the players start a punch up after a high tackle by Gábor Pálikás on Gregorio Soto. The referee seems happy enough with the challenge though and signals play on. Somebody better tell the players to put their handbags away.
1That's a lovely hanging kick by Claudio Amitrano. Gregorio Soto rises high above the UCVRC players to take the catch, giving Publio Menéndez no chance to contest.

There's lots of tired players going into extra-time. With scores all level at 14 - 14 it's all to play for!
80Gábor Pálikás can't catch the ball from Mick Winch. Waste of possession, I'd say!
79Auguste Gianni with the kick from halfway.. Abel Escudero has got his positioning all wrong and Mick Winch takes an easy catch. UCVRC will be on the front foot here.
77 A beautiful kick by Claudio Amitrano, just managed to bring it back for another two on the board.
76 Try time!!! The País dels Pirineus scrum half, Gaspar Casero, senses an opportunity as Christian Caste is the only defender to his left. He throws a massive dummy left, jinks right and dives over for an easy try. You'd think players of this level wouldn't fall for that kind of trickery!
75Thats good ball off the top of the lineout for País dels Pirineus. Slaven Francetić taps the ball down to his scrum half.
74Nice breakthrough by Mose Lawrence who gets low and charges. He cannons into Gaspar Ruiz like a stampeding bull, but Gaspar Ruiz wraps him up and manages to bring him down. Looks like we finally know what happens when an irresistible force meets an immovable object.

64UCVRC can't seem to get their act together as Mose Lawrence drops Christian Caste's pass before their attack even has a chance to get going.

Both Publio Menéndez and Slaven Francetić jump for the catch, but both players have misjudged the flight of the ball and it sails over their heads. Slaven Francetić is the first to react, scooping up the loose ball on the first bounce.
47 Auguste Gianni converts without difficulty.

33Gaspar Casero gets the ball just outside the UCVRC 22. He charges straight at Christian Caste and bulldozes over him. He passes to Ernesto Galán who similarly floors Publio Menéndez. He's slowed up enough though for Mose Lawrence to haul him down just short of the line.

15Fudo Hrvatinči? XDarren Glover
14Auguste Gianni takes the kickoff, launching the ball high into the air over País dels Pirineus stadium. Fudo Hrvatinči? positions himself well, and takes the ball in the air right in front of Abel Escudero. Good hands from the UCVRC player there.
12 Claudio Amitrano judges the wind well, and the ball splits the uprights for another two points.
11Iban Casado !Manuel Robaina !Luciano Azeredo->Ernesto Galán->Antonio Klener->Gregorio Soto
10Claudio Amitrano signals to his forwards to stay behind the ball and sends a hanging kick in their direction.
Both Mick Winch and Iban Casado jump for the catch, but both players have misjudged the flight of the ball and it sails over their heads. Iban Casado is the first to react, scooping up the loose ball on the first bounce.
8 Auguste Gianni converts without difficulty.
7Christian Caste !Gaspar Casero->Árpád Énekes->Joan Abelló
6Good lineout for UCVRC. The hooker finds his man perfectly, and Joan Abelló wins the ball in the air.
