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 chosen: 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 after 16 minutes as R. Koestinger got through on the left, but failing in concentration, he shot the ball wide. The guests almost went up by a goal after 29 minutes when V. Alden came through and shot from the right. The ball 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. Possession in this half belonged to Herwood, who controlled the ball 65 percent of the time.

The home side put themselves ahead 1 - 0 after 51 minutes courtesy of a breakthrough from I. Tiainen, who scored with a stunning volley following a cross from the right wing. 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 defence to put away the ball to increase the lead to 2 - 0 to Herwood. Herwood had most of 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.
