Weather conditions were fairly good for football, and Bethesda Arena
saw a crowd turnout of 7284. Erik Lauwagie

was able to score, taking the scoreline to 1 - 1.
The home crowd was not impressed by the fancy moves of Teufel's T. Tüdeln
after 40 minutes. He converted a pass from the left for a goal, resulting in the visitors taking the 1 - 2 lead.
1 - 2 was the score after the first half.
Possession in this half belonged to Borbeck, who controlled the ball 55 percent of the time.
55 minutes into the match, the visitors put themselves ahead 1 - 3 as B. Stangen
finished off an attack from the left with a spectacular scissors kick.
Teufel increased their lead after 58 minutes when B. Vopelius
broke through on the right, upping the score to 1 - 4, much to the home crowd's dismay.
The players of Teufel now seemed to think the job was done and acted more defensively, just waiting for the ref to blow the final whistle.
The referee showed Borbeck's P. Teubern
the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge.
The player down was A. Menzinger
. The Teufel bench looked worried for a while, but in the end he managed to get up.
Teufel made it 1 - 5 as B. Vopelius
got a touch to the floated corner kick and flicked the ball to T. Tüdeln
who whipped a low drive in off the far post.
By then T. Tüdeln
had scored three goals - a hat trick!
A penalty was awarded after 70 minutes, and G. Schwindling
made the most of his chance to put Teufel up by another goal. 1 - 6 for the visitors.
Borbeck claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 57 percent.
Borbeck's best player was H. Poszwiński

The most dominating Teufel player was without a doubt C. Mahra
on the other hand, had a terrible day.
The match ends 1 - 6.
