Dark skies made the crowd of 61995 at dh6 arena a little nervous, but the rain held off. Vladimir Vitrih was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Ayberk Tarim and Áron Csernus. hucktrick decided to use a 4-5-1 set up. The following players had been selected: Must - Harper, Hawle, Jackson, Farquharson - Niesten, Aste, Petuchovas, Avery, Lane - Trombetti.

A 4-5-1 alignment was the formation of choice for Rockingham. Starters: Isakov - Laftsis, Nevin, Valdivieso, Thomas - Sjouwerman, Frederic, Schlicht, Chance, Grant - Zubizarreta.

Using their counter-attacking abilities was the strategy of choice for Rockingham today. 3 minutes in, the referee awarded hucktrick a penalty. G. Aste coolly slotted it home for a 1 - 0 lead. hucktrick nearly produced a goal as J. Lane set up F. Niesten for a strike from a seemingly impossible angle. He was unprepared though, and put the shot wide. A cross coming in on the right hand side left I. Laftsis alone in front of the goal after 30 minutes but his shot wasn't taken well. Good work by hucktrick's defensive line after 31 minutes produced a good counter-attack chance, one of which cut elegantly down the middle of the field and found M. Trombetti alone in front of the goal, but his shot whistled just wide. With the clock showing 34 minutes played, a great pass from the defensive line of Rockingham resulted in a counter-attack that was smoothly brought under control by R. Chance in the center of the opposition's penalty area, but his finish went high. Although the counter-attack was halted by the defenders, Rockingham were given a free kick 38 minutes into the match. Rather than shooting straight at the goal, it was directed at the area just in front of the keeper. The attackers made several runs and made it hard for the defenders to protect their goal. After a short struggle with his marker, I. Laftsis could finally lay the ball to rest behind the keeper. 1 - 1, and proof it can pay off to come prepa The referee showed hucktrick's V. Petuchovas the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. Rockingham had a good opportunity to score the go-ahead goal after a combination on the right but the home team's keeper R. Must saved C. Schlicht's shot that was headed straight to the top corner. 1 - 1 was the score after the first half. Possession in this half belonged to hucktrick, who had the ball 59 percent of the time.

A well placed corner kick from J. Valdivieso was followed by C. Schlicht's hard but accurate header. The nice combination marked a goal for Rockingham, the score now 1 - 2. The hucktrick coach was desperate to reverse his team's fortunes in the game, and ordered his team to change their strategy. After 60 minutes, hucktrick substituted M. Trombetti for M. Naumann, hoping for a quick impact on the field. With 60 minutes played, the hucktrick coach decided a substitution may help turn the game around. L. Polito came on and F. Niesten had to leave the fray. K. Grant had put in a good 70 minutes and left the field with a smile on his face due to his team's lead. J. Halmetschlager was the replacement. The crowd gasped as E. Harper of hucktrick was flattened by an opponent after 74 minutes and had to be helped off the field. M. Brennan hopped from the bench to replace him. 79 minutes into the game, Rockingham worked the left side industriously creating several opportunities to add to their lead, but just couldn't apply the finishing touch. 80 minutes into the match, hucktrick's G. Aste maneuvered his way around the opposition on the left flank, delighting the crowd with his twists and turns. The effort paid off as the ball found the back of the net, evening the score at 2 - 2. hucktrick had a good opportunity to take the lead as R. Jackson came up the left side, but he struck the ball weakly and it went straight into the arms of E. Isakov. After 83 minutes, a well-worked counter-attack by Rockingham on the right gave N. Nevin an easy opportunity in front of the goal. He duly converted to make it 2 - 3. A foul after 85 minutes resulted in a free kick for hucktrick. G. Aste took advantage as he curled the tying goal into the top corner, out of reach of the keeper’s outstretched arms. 3 - 3. At that, G. Aste was noted down for a hattrick! 88 minutes into the game, Rockingham wanted to bring some new energy to their game. E. Isakov gave F. Del Pozo a quick hug as he left the field. As the 89 minute mark approached, the Rockingham manager decided it was time for a substitution. N. Nevin reluctantly made way for A. Cuadros. hucktrick set the tempo, maintaining 61 percent of possession.

The most dominating hucktrick player was without a doubt J. Lane. M. Brennan was a disappointment, however. Rockingham's top performer was clearly C. Zubizarreta. J. Valdivieso on the other hand, had a terrible day. The match ends 3 - 3.
