5004 spectators had come to Näpi Park this cloudy day. Näpikad tactics involved an interesting 2-5-3 combination. Lineup: Isola - Eenmaa, Lekk - Roloff, Bamberg, Stampouloglou, Sakunsirisombat, Mae - Efkende, Ploom, Pistolato.

A 3-5-2 alignment was the formation of choice for Þórshamar. Starters: Leponen - Dou, Habermacher, Oustampasidis - Eschmann, Bjarkason, Kiljansson, Ísólfsson, Call - Kristbjörnsson, Obrestad.

Þórshamar concentrated their attacks in the middle of the field, rather than on the wings. Näpikad fans held their breath as O. Lekk gallivanted down the left side. He successfully avoided all challenges and fired home the go-ahead goal for 1 - 0! After 35 minutes, the visitors evened the score after C. Obrestad made it through the middle and struck home making it 1 - 1. Big paper red cards were being held up by the opposing supporters with 37 minutes on the clock after O. Call's mistimed tackle from behind. The referee only showed the Þórshamar player a yellow card though. Näpikad had to make a substitution after 40 minutes. K. Roloff apparently was hit by a thrown bottle of Schlitz by one of the opposing players' fans, and now reeks of blood and bad beer. While the coach remonstrated with the side official about the situation, E. Blanco finished his warmups and came on. Näpikad took the lead 41 minutes into the game by 2 to 1, as Y. Efkende elegantly received a long range pass through the middle, finishing it off with a half-volley shot just below the bar. Þórshamar were close to putting the equalizer away after 42 minutes as the opposing defense lost the ball to O. Call in a scuffle on the left of the goal, but in the end the ball was cleared over the sideline. The visitors didn't give in and, after 43 minutes, B. Kristbjörnsson got through the home side's central line of defense, rolling in the leveling goal to make it 2 - 2. The home side put themselves ahead 3 - 2 after 44 minutes of hard work with a breakthrough from G. Pistolato, who, all by his lonesome, came out of the right wing and hooked the ball over the visitors' keeper. Þórshamar's G. Bjarkason was shown a yellow card for standing over the ball and blocking an opponent's quick free kick after 44 minutes. 3 - 2 was the halftime score. Näpikad set the tempo, maintaining 58 percent of possession.

50 minutes into the game, G. Bjarkason had to leave the field due to a knee injury. In came K. Friðgeirsson. Þórshamar tied it all up, 60 minutes in, after a spectacular goal by N. Kiljansson, who miraculously broke through the home side's central defense, making it 3 - 3. The home keeper expected a move to the right, but C. Obrestad surprised him with a free kick aimed the other way 70 minutes into the match. 3 - 4 for Þórshamar. K. Mae made a superb effort after 77 minutes after a long ball through the middle, but one of the visitors' defenders got a foot in at the last second to preserve the away lead. 79 minutes into the game, Þórshamar were awarded a penalty and C. Obrestad was able to increase the visitors' lead to 3 - 5, rolling the ball in off the right post. He'd already scored two, and with the third, C. Obrestad had a hattrick! The statistics geek breathlessly ran into the press box to show Näpikad in control of the ball, with 52 percent possession. Thanks, Poindexter.

R. Bamberg performed admirably for Näpikad. E. Blanco on the other hand, had a terrible day. Þórshamar's top performer was clearly K. Friðgeirsson. C. Obrestad turned in a dismal performance, however. The match ends 3 - 5.
