The starting squad of Karpaty certainly missed Yevtushok, Zub, Tolochko,
Zakoyuk and of course Hetsko, who was placed among substitutes just
the game. It is thus no wonder that during the first 5 min Chornomorets
tried to open the scoring, totally occupying the host's half. Then,
slowly gained the initiative and responded on the 13 min with the
Semochko from the Kovalets pass. Odessa forwards,Husseinov and
were personally guarded by Tymchyshyn and Tanasyuk respectively.
played constantly on the risk of off-side, visibly lacking understanding
with partners. On the other hand, Mokan's creative efforts in the middle
were too sophisticated. On the 26 min, Karpaty earned the corner after
Kovalets' kick was reflected by Spitsyn closely to the left post.
made a header ideally on Semochko's head, who directed the ball...in
Hryshko's hands. It was the last moment when Odessa goalie saved his
team...Active Semochko failed to score on Vovchuk's pass three minutes
later. Chornomorets responded quickly with a powerful shot of Yatsurak
40 m which was captured by Strontsytsky. On the 35 min, Tanasyuk and
Husseinov exchanged fauls, getting both bookings. Husseinov's faul was
The 38 min brought up the episode that affected all the remaining game.
Odessa side Polischuk, for whom it was the first game for Chornomorets',
attacked Nazarov. It was clear that he first touched the ball and then
stroke the Nazarov's leg. Neither it looked like an attack from behind.
However, the referree Horozhankin, being himself far enough from the
the episode, sent Polischuk off. The majority of spectators, including
Karpaty fans agreed that the faul did not deserve such a punishemnt.
Karpaty received some space and flooded the Odessa side's box. On the
minutes, Karpaty performed 3 corners in a row, with the last one saved
Hrushko anfter Mizin's kick. The referree added much time, and it was
4th (!) extra minute when Mizin volleyed in the right corner, finally
opening the scoring. 1-0!
The first minutes of the second half clearly demonstrated that Karpaty
stop on one goal. Substituted Yevglevsky made a pass on Khoma, standing
alone on the box's line. The latter easily cheated Hryshko, sending the
into empty volley.
On the 55 minute, Husseinov appeared suddenly tet-a-tet with
and tried to throw the ball above the falling keeper. However,
reflected the ball with his shoulder to Tanasyuk. The latter returned
ball back (!) and Husseinov intercepted it and wanted to score on turn,
Strontsystsky jumped like lion and stopped the ball in Husseinov's feet.
Shortly after that, Holokolosov slided between 3 (!) defenders and shot
close to the post. On 58th min he and Husseinov ran into Karpaty box
only Vilchynsky before them. Holokolosov had better position, but
gave the pass to Husseinov which was intercepted by the defender.
Karpaty stroke back with two crosses by Vovchuk on 61 and 66 min.
neither Mizin nor Pokladok capitalised, despite Hryshko failed to
them. On the 66 min, Semochko shoots on Hryshko, who clears the ball on
Artemenko. The defender makes his pass to ..Mizin, who nets into empty
Karpaty continued their attacks and Kovalets scored after his individual
raid past two defenders and parachute-like ball traectory above Hryshko.
Odessa goalie realy has had a nervous breakdown which brought up him a
yellow card when he disagreed with the linesman regarding the tentative
corner after Yatsyrak touched the ball. Hryshko got mad and kicked the
toward the centre of the pitch, getting another booking...
The spectators bursted with their applauds when Husseinov got his place
the frame. He had to change 2 shirts, because Horozhankin was not happy
their colour!! Soon after that, the forward had a chance to
practice-Husseinov cleared the corner kick. However, he could not save
team from the powerful strike by Kovalets close to the left post.
Ostap Semkiv personally congratulated each Karpaty player with such a
After the game.
-We did not play well in the first half, but were greatly helped by
goal. We had a squad far from ideal: Yevtushok, Tolochko, Hetsko, Zub -
all must improve the team's performance. The score is correct, as
looked very weak today.
What can I say about the game...I am satisfied with my team, the players
fought but lacked their partner...The result is just, since we were in
minority...I didn't see any banditism there (in Polischuk's faul),
understood something wrong. I'll look at the tape, maybe there I'll see
Question: 0-3, 0-5-don't you want to quit?
-..I don't think that I am the reason...
Question: Is squad the reason?
-You have seen 5 new players, that's all.
Question: What about the financial basis of the team?
-Apparently it doesn't make me nervous. (Rus.-Vneshne ona ne
Comments of the translator: It is interesting why Holokolosov didn't let
Kovrizhkin play? He received best references even in lost games...Also,
Hryshko becoming so unreliable, or it is the mistake of the coach while
assembling the defence?
