1 -1 draw at Faro e Benfica yesterday. Couldn't go as it was switched late in the day and I would not have had time to get there. Not that I like their awful ground anyway!

Imortal 5 Messinense 1

A good win for Imortal and their best result of the season against a poor side. It could have been more, but Imortal did lose their way a bit from time to time.

The pitch was immaculate, weather sunny and dry but a bit windy from time to time.

Messinense actually began the better side, Imortal's 'keeper Nelio was called into action three times in the first ten minutes as the defence in front of him was breached. Imortal gradually settled down and with Paollo Oliveira having a good game up front chances started to come.

Mid way through the half Imortal took the lead. A free kick was floated in from the rigth by Baldé, it crossed right over to the far side where Oliveira was waiting. A stooping header guided the ball past the visiting custodian.

Two more good chances swiftly followed, the crossbar being struck with one, and five minutes later it was 2-0. A nice pass again by Baldé found Maia on a nice little run into the box. He had to do no more than roll the ball into the net from ten yards with defenders and 'keeper all at sea.

A minute before half time it was 3-0, Oliveira again the scorer with an easy close range tap-in after good work in midfield by Santos.

There was one response by Messinense after that, but a good tipover save by Nelio kept it at 3-0 at the interval.

Messinense straggled out for the second half looking a beaten team and perhaps Imortal took a rest. For the first quarter hour, although Imortal had a ot of the ball the final pass was poor and chances went a-begging.

Imortal's torpor was pretty deep on the hour. Messinense took advantage and put together a very decent move that no-one dealt with, leaving Nelio waving his arms in frustration when beaten by a close range shot from an unmarked opponent.

The game carried on being messy and disorganised. Oliveria managed to get himself booked for a silly foul miles from anywhere. He had another chance, looking suspiciously offside, but the Messinense keeper saved well. Oliveria went down injured, went off for a couple of minutes, came back, but didn't fully recover and was later subbed by Chico.

Chico was immediately into the game, his first involvement was to be chopped down on the halfway line. Five minutes before the end of normal time, he weaved his way into the penalty area, was barged over unceremoniously and gained a penalty. Baldé lined up and powered it low and hard into the net for 4-1.

Veteran defender Canito made the mistake of getting involved in a hefty challenge with former Imortal player Marco Benje, struggled to his feet and had to be taken off.

In the time added on for that, Imortal scored again, the scorer being a player up from the juniors whose I understood to be Walter. His was a good goal, a good pass enabled him to cut inside the last defender and drill the ball past the helpless goalie.

That's three second phase games played, one defeat, one draw and one win so far.

Imortal's next game is on Saturday, away to the 11 Esperanças in Faro, ko 1715hrs.
