Round of 16 - After the matches on Day 3 (June 28, 2021)

Saucer 1/4 Final (Refioji: Achiyama)

Counting only the 90 minutes of the matches:

KABA   JAKUSOTSU     FURANOHANA   CHIJANOFUJI
Squad Goals   Squad Goals     Squad Goals   Squad Goals
  1. England (S1)       1. Italy D       1. Italy  0        D     1. France 0       D
  2. Belgium (C)  1       W     2. France 0        D       2.France 0        D     2. Netherlands 0        L
  3. Austria 0        D     3. Denmark 1       W       3.Spain 0        D     3. Spain (C ) D
  4. Sweden       4. Germany (C )         4. England       4. Denmark W
  5. Spain D     5. Ukraine         5. Croatia D     5. Ukraine  
  6. Denmark W     6. England         6. Switzerland (R) D     6. Germany (S1)  
  7. Switzerland 0       D     0        L       7. Austria 0        D     7. Switzerland D
  8. Italy D     L              
                        
                       

So if today's match England-Germany ends in a draw after 90 minutes Furanohana will have his entire chain unbroken but all with draws!

Surely that have never happened before in the history of the Bench Sumo fantasy football, or has it?

Saucer Quarterfinals, upper half of Tableau after Day 3 Octofinals:

 

Both matches are already decided !

image.png.95200cae4a29e7c7a36e77a418b08a23.png

0-1

Nekos chain broke on slot #1 with the loss of the Netherlands.

Shounokuni scored on slot #3 with the danish win

With England and the Ukraine he could make his victory even greater

 

image.png.dec734944db676dccb38d3d5dd324f8e.png

1-0

Baku scored with Belgium,

Finngalls chain broke at #2 with the loss of the Netherlands

Baku could score another goal if Germany will not win

(but I think that's really NOT necessary :-D)

 

So Shounokuni and Baku advance (Zabutonflying...)

Nekonishiki and Finngall must use their Ticket to go home (Happygoodbyes...) (Flyingaplane...)

Thanks for taking part in the Bench Euros 2020 !!! (KaioU...)

Well done, Three Lions! About time after 55 years.

I'm selfishly glad Sweden didn't lose, sparing me the effort of going into extra-time (which Athenayama would have won anyway).

Athenayama's team of all-draws succeeds with his R-Team being the only exception.

Octofinal matches final day (first report).

Jejima - Godango :

What a match we had here ! Thanks to Denmark in S2, Godango was leading 0-1. However  the win of England combined with the draw of Sweden in S3 gave 2 goals to Jejima to reverse the score 2-1 ! Alas for our Englishman Belgium evened the score 2-2 at S4. And finally, the same England that gave 2 goals to Jejima was also his executioner at S5 giving the win to our Australian 2-3 !
This was a high score game which no one deserved to lose. Unfortunately there had to be a winner. Congratulations to Godango !  (I hope I am correct!)

Octofinals Matches #1 & 2

Final Results

Match 1

The English win gives Fujiko a slot 1 goal, and now the best @Terarno can do is keep this to a draw with a victory for Sweden...

Alas, instead they earn a draw. Enough to break Fujiko's chain, but not enough to get points on the board.

The England win keeps their chain alive in slot 4 but earns no points, with the chain finally breaking in slot 5 giving Fujiko the victory. A valiant effort.

Congratulations Fujiko! (c-o @Jejima)

Match 2

This match is already decided in favour of @Joaoiyama - but what kind of score can he achieve to send a message to the rest of the competition?

Sadly for him, @Nantonoyama deftly breaks his chain in slot three with the Swedish draw, ending the match at a respectable 2-0.

Congratulations, Joaoiyama!

Octofinal matches final day (second report).

Ojisan - Kuma-Koma :

What a thriller did we have also here, Ladies and Gentlemen (and I hope I did this right again)!
Sweden draw in S1 which breaks the chain of Ojisan but no goal for Kuma-Koma.  Netherlands loss combined with the win of Belgium breaks Kuma-Koma's chain in S2. So we had a draw 0-0 here in regular time.
Hence extra time starts at S3. And what do we have there? A
Belgium win for Kuma-Koma and a Germany loss for Ojisan. As a result Ojisan's chain breaks there and Kuma-Koma scores a goal for a final win in extra time 1-0 ! (Kuma-Koma's chain is broken again at S6 without any goal in between)

                                 
  Ojisan H     Kuma-Koma A     Goal H Ojisan Chain H   Goal A Kuma-Koma Chain A  
1. Sweden R D - Sweden N D     0 x -   0

Baku - Finngal 2-0

2 winners, 2 goals, feels like Ganbarre !

Shounokuni scored his 2nd goal with this ugly english victory (Blinking...) (Englands victory - not Shounokunis !)

 

image.png.0513aa5e4c175ba1bd7896e9499ca03a.png

Strong performance by Baku - no losers in his Team !

He used his 2 winners perfectly and thus scored also another goal with germany's defeat :'-((germany's defeat - not Baku's win !)

 

Good luck

in the next round and for the 2 others on your way home (RidinganATV...)

Round of 16 - After the matches on Day 4 (June 29, 2021)

Saucer 1/4 Final (Refioji: Achiyama)

As Chijanojuji discussed earlier there is unusual situation in his match against Furanohana.

Match #1: Jakusotsu's chain was broken at Slot #4. He managed to score a goal at  Slot #3. Kaba's chain was never broken. He scored 2 goals. He is the Winner.

KABA   JAKUSOTSU
Squad Goals   Squad Goals
  1. England (S1) 1       W     1. Italy 0        D
  2. Belgium (C)  1       W     2. France 0        D
  3. Austria 0        D     3. Denmark 1       W
  4. Sweden 0        D     4. Germany (C ) 0        L
  5. Spain 0        D     5. Ukraine D
  6. Denmark 0        W     6. England W
  7. Switzerland 0       D      L
  8. Italy 0        D     L
          
WINNER 2   LOSER 1

 

Match #2: Chijanofuji's chain was broken at Slot #2. No goal was scored at Slot #1. Furanohana's chain was never broken, but he didn't score a single goal.

FURANOHANA   CHIJANOFUJI
Squad Goals   Squad Goals
  1. Italy  0        D     1. France 0       D
  2.France 0        D     2. Netherlands 0        L
  3.Spain 0        D     3. Spain (C ) D
  4. England 0       W     4. Denmark W
  5. Croatia 0        D     5. Ukraine D
  6. Switzerland (R) 0        D     6. Germany (S1) L
  7. Austria 0        D     7. Switzerland D
         
         
         

So, 0:0, but as the game cannot be a draw, I have a Question  to the Rijicho Jejima:

1.) Do we have to reopen the chains at Slot #1, although the second chain was never broken and consider what happened at the end of 120 min (this seems logical to me). Italy Wins after 120 min., while France is still in a Draw. Furanohana scores a goal at Slot#1. Both chains are unbroken.

Slot #2: Netherlands in Chijanofuji's lineup is removed. Spain (C) climbs to Slot #2. Spain wins after 120 min., while France in Furanohana's chain loses and his chain is broken.

Slot #4: England (Furanohana) and Denmark (Chijanofuji) are removed.

Slot #3: Ukraine (Chijanofuji) climbs to Slot #3. Ukraine loses after 120 min. Chijanofuji has his chain broken. Game over. Win 1:0 for Furanohana.

OR

2.) Penalty kicks have to be performed.

If only Ukraine could have won in normal time - or if I had not put so much faith in my hunch that Wales would win.

So, 0:0, but as the game cannot be a draw, I have a Question  to the Rijicho Jejima:

 

Jejima is in a rush - school run and Peter and Felix still need to get dressed...  But quickly checks the rules.

Extra time starts with the next slot after the place where the second team to have their chain broken, was broken. (I.e. Player A's chain broke on the 2nd slot. Player B's chain broke on the 5th slot. Extra time for both players starts from the 6th slot.) From that point onwards, all matches are considered after the 120 mins result (or 90 mins, if it did not go that far). If either chain remains unbroken (including the default losses to fill the empty slots) to the last team in the squad, the chain continues starting from the first slot again.

It looks like that I did not cover the actual eventuality of a chain never getting broken . I know what my intent would have been (same as it is now), and this final part implies it --> 

If either chain remains unbroken (including the default losses to fill the empty slots) to the last team in the squad, the chain continues starting from the first slot again.

So based on what my intent would have been, and based on simple logic (as Achiyama clearly states), yes, extra time begins from the first slot with matches that ended in 90 minutes now treated as a draw without any penalty to teams that are (C) or (R).

I have now edited the rules to include clearer wording for what happens for a player(s) with an unbroken chain in 'normal time'.

However, for extra time, teams that completed their results in normal time are not removed from the second run-through, but are instead considered as 'draws' (with special teams NOT having any special rules, but are treated like normal teams. ONLY for matches that ended in 90 minutes. For matches that went to extra time, the special teams (C) and (R) retain their special rules for the 'extra time' results. So (for example)  Italy as an 'R' team might have caused a break in the chain with a draw in normal time , but then come roaring back to score two goals with a win in 'extra time'.

Anyway, I will go back and check the second time action for that match - as well as verify all the other Octofinal / Quarterfinal matches.

FURANOHANA   CHIJANOFUJI
Squad Goals   Squad Goals
  1. Italy  0        D     1. France 0       D
  2.France 0        D     2. Netherlands 0        L
  3.Spain 0        D     3. Spain (C ) D
  4. England 0       W     4. Denmark W
  5. Croatia 0        D     5. Ukraine D

  7. Austria 0        D     7. Switzerland D
         
         
         

 

So 0-0 in normal time (as reported by Achiyama).

We move to extra time...  I am copying and pasting Achiyama's table - but I can't work out how to delete the 'grey' for the broken chain, so please ignore that.  I have used a crossed out line to indicate results for after where the chain is broken.

NB France and Switzerland drew after the end of extra time, so remain as a 'draw' in the extra time play.

In the second run-through of the results during extra time, all results that ended in 90 minutes are now treated as 'draws' for the purpose of the game. Any (R) or (C) team that was in a match decided in 90 minutes are now treated as 'normal draw' for the purpose of the game. Basically, matches that ended in 90 minutes cannot score a goal in the second run through, but they also cannot break chains.

FURANOHANA   CHIJANOFUJI
Squad Goals   Squad Goals
  1. Italy  1      W     1. France 0       D
  2.France 0        D     2. Netherlands 0        D
  3.Spain        W     3. Spain (C ) 0      W
  4. England 0       D     4. Denmark 0       D
  5. Croatia 0       L     5. Ukraine 1    W
  6. Switzerland (R) D     6. Germany (S1) 0     D
  7. Austria     L          7. Switzerland 0     D
         
         
         

 

So, this time Chijanofuji's chain does not break on the second run through!  Final score is 1-1 after extra time, so there will be penalties!

I will do those last - after checking the other results. If anyone thinks I have made a mistake, please let me know by PM. :-)

Possibly another match going to VAR for the extra time....

I am not sure how to delete the tables.

As reported by refioji Athenayama, the match ended 0-0 in normal time, with extra time beginning  with slot three. However, for extra time in the first run through, we consider the results after 120 minutes (or 90 minutes, if the game did not go that far). Kuma-Koma does score a goal with Belgium, and Ojisan's chain is broken, due to the loss of Germany. Italy and Spain's extra time wins cancel each other out, and Kuma-Koma's chain is then broken with Croatia's extra time loss. So the match does finish 0-1 to Kuma-Koma in extra time, as reported.  Basically, I have just changed what was reported as 'draws' with the 120 minutes result after the extra time started (slot 3 onwards). 

                               
  Ojisan H     Kuma-Koma A     Goal H Ojisan Chain H   Goal A Kuma-Koma Chain A  
1. Sweden R D - Sweden N D     0 x -   0    
2. Belgium N W - Netherlands N L   1 1   -   0 x  
3. Germany N L - Belgium N W     1   - 1 1    
4. Italy N W - Spain N W     1   -   1    
5. Croatia N L - Croatia R L     1   -   1

All the other results seem to be in order, but there is that penalty shoot out to sort out between Furanohana and Chijanofuji.

So, I will do that now, then publish the final results, etc....

Okay, the penalty shoot-out between Furanohana and Chijanofuji....

(Making sure that I am using the Octofinal/Saucer Quarterfinals list, and not the Quarterfinal/Saucer Semifinals list...)  As a reminder, if the team is through to the real quarterfinals, that's a penalty scored. Otherwise, it is missed. We use the first five penalty takers for both players, and then go to sudden death if need be. 

Furanohana goes first.....

France! - The ball hits the post! 0-?

Chijanofuji next....

France! - That one hit the crossbar! 0-0

Furanohana...... Spain!  It's in! 1-0

Chijanofuji...... Belgium! Likewise 1-1

Furanohana..... England! Lovely shot ;-) 2-1

Chijanofuji...... Italy! Keeping pace.... 2-2

Furanohana....... Belgium! It's now 3-2

Chijanofuji....... Spain! Still keeping pace! 3-3

Furanohana....... Croatia! Eeeek. That one was saved by the keeper! It remains 3-3

So, this is the last penalty of the five.... If Chijanofuji scores, he will win the match. If he loses, we will go to sudden death...

Chijanofuji....

Chijanofuji survives the penalty shoot-out, and is through to the Saucer semi-finals to face Kaba!
