A brilliantly sunny day had enticed a crowd of 44009 to Goodhew Park. Manojlo Vidojević was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Felipe Alzuhn and Zygfryd Kajtowski. The derby had been the talk of New South Wales all week and fans of both teams could be seen throughout the stadium. A 5-3-2 alignment was the formation of choice for Langhams. Starters: Viso - Gorrizarri, Ubago, Akbaşak, Troska, Võsu - Besterman, Spil, Lam - Falaniko, Barczyk.

Ockers had chosen a strategic 4-5-1 formation. The following players had been chosen: Barcos - Criades, Weetra, Alfaia, Garza - Thijssen, Renouard, Ehlberg, Gill, Erman - Portaro.

Ockers tried to focus their attacks down the middle. I. Erman's early cross saw the defenders caught out of position and the alert R. Portaro was able to pounce and roll the ball past the hapless goalkeeper to score for Ockers. 0 - 1. Ockers's G. Renouard left the field after 25 minutes because of a nasty blow to the shin. His replacement was J. Gallegos. It was obvious that team Ockers had instructions to attack in the middle instead of on the wings. 28 minutes into the match, P. Criades came through the middle and almost added to his team's lead, but the shot went wide. With 29 minutes gone, a long pass from the defence of Langhams resulted in a counterattack that set W. Besterman free through the middle, but the keeper made a spectacular diving save. With 30 minutes played, Ockers put themselves up 0 - 2 after an attack from the right, caused by a defensive blunder. The scorer was I. Erman. 0 - 2 was the halftime score. Possession in this half belonged to Ockers, who controlled the ball 76 percent of the time.

Content with how the game was proceeding, the Ockers coach let M. Marsden replace O. Garza after 46 minutes. With the scoreboard showing that 51 minutes had been played, Ockers nearly put themselves up another goal after M. Marsden came through on the left. Fortunately for the home crowd, the keeper made the save. A defender managed to keep the ball from crossing the goal-line after a curling shot coming in from the right from I. Erman after 52 minutes, and prevented Ockers from going up another goal. It was a hot and sunny day, and several players seemed worn out. Maybe this was why A. Alfaia found an unusual amount of space for his snappy footwork. Having been awarded a free kick in an awkward position after 54 minutes, Ockers did not go for a shot but instead fired the ball hard into the 6 yard box. After a brief tussle with his marker, W. Gill was able to power the ball past the keeper to make the score 0 - 3. The heat made it a terrible day for T. Weetra, who seemed unable to keep up with the other players. Ockers had a good opportunity to attack on the wing, but remembered their instructions to go for middle attacks. Ockers increased their lead after 64 minutes when P. Criades broke through on the right, upping the score to 0 - 4, much to the home crowd's dismay. After 78 minutes, a mistake by the home side's left defence allowed R. Ehlberg to get through. He outclassed the home side's keeper, adding another goal for the visitors. 0 - 5. Confident in their lead, Ockers's players relaxed and focused more on defending the lead than increasing it. Ockers had most of the ball, with 79 percent of possession.

Most important Langhams player was A. Barczyk. E. Viso on the other hand, had a terrible day. The most dominating Ockers player was without a doubt R. Ehlberg. M. Marsden turned in a dismal performance, however. The match ends 0 - 5.
