Moscow Patriots - Donetsk Scythians

So, the game was very interesting. First of all, all Patriots players
remembered the result of previous weekend game. It was a tie game and a tie
score 21:21.
As the previous game, that was also very tie. Both teams were equally good.
Moscow scored on the first quarter. It was a safety. Donetsk tried to play
Punt, but the snap was bad and the ball went out from the field. Officials
got a safety signal and the first two points appeared on the scoreboard. Then the game returned to it's usual (for that game) manner. Until Moscow got a chance to score. Dmitri Sergeev made a couple steps backward and then made a great throw. His target was Alexander Khokhlov. He catched that pass inside Donetsk end-zone. So, after the extra-point the score was 9-0. The same dominance was up to the end of the first half.
In the beginning of the second half Moscow got some chances but failed to
score. Donetsk defense made some great plays. Patriots QB was sacked twice.
In the end of the third quarter the score was the same - 9:0
The fourth quartet was completely under Donetsk control. Somehow Moscow team relaxed and let guests to release some good plays. Defense played good and only with their help Donetsk could got first points. It was a safety. Mikhail Gerasimov was tackled in his endzone. In the end of the game it was a couple of penalties on Moscow team. As a result Donetsk got a chance and used it. First - the TD and then 2-point conversion. Moscow still had a chance but Ivan Stelmach missed a field goal from the 35 yard line.
The final score is 9:10. Donetsk won.
