Overcast weather free of rain made for a turnout of 59587 at Felix Memorial Stadium today. Benedikt Sushchev was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Russell Grubb and Rogier Delius. Gnashers decided to use a 3-5-2 set up. They fielded: Maghribi - Gedanke, Zarzalejos, von Humboldt - Gladwin, Pritchard, Cant, Cuciniello, Johnston - Jagsch, Maunu.

McYids tactics involved an interesting 4-5-1 combination. Lineup: Thinggaard - Hinojosa, Gillmeister, Barbosa Costa, Sender - Gesto, Stillavato, Okay, Ginesu, MacLeod - Puliga.

Gnashers mostly ignored the flanks in favor of their ability to attack in the middle. McYids saw most attack opportunities on the wings. Some things can only be learned through experience, and C. Gedanke should take his lesson to heart after nearly gifting McYids a goal after 5 minutes. With 8 minutes gone, the home side managed to take a 1 - 0 lead as H. Maunu flipped the ball in after a cross from the right. After 23 minutes, a couple of quick and successful challenges followed by a shot from just outside the penalty area by H. Maunu might have resulted in another goal for Gnashers. However, M. Thinggaard made a spectacular save. Things were going from bad to worse for the visitors. H. Maunu was able to squirm through the central defense after 27 minutes and score, bringing the lead to 2 - 0. The referee showed McYids's F. Barbosa Costa the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. M. Cant was not content with his team's lead, and tried to extend it 31 minutes into the game after a nice run through the middle, but his shot went wide. It was 2 - 0 at the break. Gnashers were doing a good job holding on to the ball, with 62 percent of possession.

The Gnashers players could smell victory in the air. C. Gedanke wasn't in a hurry to leave the field as he was substituted for K. Aro after 46 minutes. S. Ginesu had a good opportunity to reply with a break through the middle, but the home team's goalkeeper A. Maghribi just wouldn't be beat. A. Pritchard should probably have put his team up another goal after 65 minutes, but some great goalkeeping by M. Thinggaard kept the visitors in the game. After a play down the right 74 minutes into the match, Gnashers's A. Jagsch unleashed a ferocious shot that smashed into the roof of the net - after going over the crossbar. Gnashers's L. Gladwin had an excellent opportunity 78 minutes in, shooting after bringing down a ball from the right, but he missed the goal by miles! The statistics showed Gnashers in control of the ball, with 62 percent possession.

H. Maunu performed admirably for Gnashers. On the other hand, K. Aro's play was disheartening. The most dominating McYids player was without a doubt F. Puliga. M. Thinggaard on the other hand, had a terrible day. The match ends 2 - 0.
