The following players took the field: Iraeta - Théodose, Magariños Blanco, Băldean - Verde, Farre, Nielsen, Ransmayr, Henstra - Lieres, Olsson.

put the ball away for 0 - 1.
Kurtakocsma's C. Olsson
was shown a yellow card after 12 minutes for slicing down an opponent.
With 27 minutes played, Kurtakocsma's well-worked indirect free kick caused havoc in the penalty area, and when the ball eventually fell to K. Magariños Blanco
he gleefully slotted the ball home to make it 0 - 2.
After this, you could see that the players of Kurtakocsma were more interested in killing time than scoring more goals.
Some fine movement on the left led to a Kurtakocsma goal after 33 minutes, making it 0 - 3. J. Lieres
was noted down as the scorer.
The visitors nearly scored again after 36 minutes, but a superb save by G. Hörbo

At that, J. Lieres
was noted down for a hat trick!
wanted to play on, but the Kurtakocsma coach had other ideas, and he was replaced 65 minutes into the game by J. Janota
After 77 minutes, Puldin's L. Candelo
fell awkwardly, but was determined to stay in the match. That's the spirit!
A misunderstanding between the visitors' keeper J. Iraeta
and his left defence could have resulted in a goal for Puldin, but P. Kulinski
's finish was way too lame.
The coach of Kurtakocsma was happy with the game so far, but still wanted to change the line up. After 80 minutes, J. Rybus
came on for M. Verde
Kurtakocsma were determined to attack in the middle, even their wing attacks ended up centrally.
After 81 minutes, an incisive pass through the middle gave J. Lieres
a chance to increase the lead for Kurtakocsma, and he did not disappoint. The score was then 0 - 5.
84 minutes into the game, Kurtakocsma worked the left side industriously creating several opportunities to add to their lead, but just couldn't apply the finishing touch.
Kurtakocsma's C. Olsson
had to watch the rest of the game from the sidelines, after twisting his ankle with 86 minutes having been played. K. Quell
was the replacement.

but overcooked it and hit the bar instead.
Kurtakocsma's K. Quell
was shown a yellow card for standing over the ball and blocking an opponent's quick free kick after 88 minutes.
Possession in this half belonged to Kurtakocsma, who controlled the ball 63 percent of the time.
The most dominating Puldin player was without a doubt G. Uchtritz
On the other hand, L. Candelo
's play was disheartening.
Most important Kurtakocsma player was J. Lieres

The match ends 0 - 5.
