The 66307 spectators at Menno Taal Memorial Stadium were in for an afternoon of sunshine. Gabriel Cànaves was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Reinhard Gabriel and Lluís Casellas. Herwood tactics involved an interesting 3-5-2 combination. The following players took the field: Beurskens - Uosukainen, Buerg, Autiomäki - Syfrig, Jesień, Koestinger, Tiainen, Rodero - Johansson, Krzyżański.

Butcher tactics involved an interesting 3-5-2 combination. The following players had been selected: Järvinen - Geisbuehl, Heikkilä, Pohjalainen - Freud, Vähätalo, Wester, Korkka, Åhlblom - Alden, Stjernér.

Herwood had a good opportunity to take the lead as F. Buerg came up the left side, but he struck the ball weakly and it went straight into the arms of E. Järvinen. Herwood's D. Jesień was shown a yellow card after 12 minutes for slicing down an opponent. Herwood were very close to putting themselves one up with 16 minutes gone as R. Koestinger got through on the left, but a lapse in concentration sent the ball wide. The guests almost went up by a goal with 29 minutes elapsed when V. Alden came through from the right. The shot bounced harmlessly off the post, though. 36 minutes into the game, V. Alden had a great chance to put his team ahead, but his kick from the left went wide. 0 - 0 was the score after the first half. Lewis Skolnick, in his Tri-Lamb sweater, grabbed the microphone away from the Herwood coach in order to tell him that his team had 65 percent possession this half. Nerds.

The home side put themselves ahead 1 - 0 after 51 minutes of hard work with a breakthrough from I. Tiainen, who, all by his lonesome, came out of the right wing and hooked the ball over the visitors' keeper. After 73 minutes, a couple of quick and successful challenges followed by a shot from just outside the penalty area by R. Rodero might have resulted in another goal for Herwood. However, E. Järvinen made a spectacular save. Cheers filled the stadium as A. Johansson broke through the visitors' central defense to put away the 2 - 0 goal for Herwood. Herwood were doing a good job holding on to the ball, with 68 percent of possession.

Herwood's top performer was clearly R. Beurskens. B. Syfrig turned in a dismal performance, however. Butcher's top performer was clearly E. Järvinen. A. Stjernér turned in a dismal performance, however. The match ends 2 - 0.
