Around 177 brave souls made it to the wet and mud of Bedinje to see the game. Some joker suggested a snorkel and flippers might be more appropriate, given the conditions. While a boggy pitch like this was an advantage for physical players, it really didn't help those who relied on speed or technique. The boys who got to play today were: Rikalovski - Zajcev, Pandilovski - Zeqiri, Levenski, Gerchakovski, Kaçaku, Najdovski - Rexha, Rapushi, Dzimrev.

The lucky starting players: Šitin - Uram, Živković, Franulović - Privileđo, Markulin, Knežak, Milan - Matušin, Simić, Grđan.

Galaktik Academy fielded a 2-5-3 lineup. For NK Cista Provo, the formation of choice was 3-4-3. Galaktiko demonstrated their creative tactics on the field. The penalty given to the visitors after 7 minutes was questionable, but no one seemed to bother protesting. Grgo Knežak struck home the 0 - 1 penalty, as cool as anything. Look at Zvonimir Markulin of Cistaci go! He lost his marker and picked out Natko Milan who had no problem scoring from close range! 0 - 2 goal. Galaktiko reduced the lead to 1 - 2 after 28 minutes as Evgenij Dzimrev converted a cross from the left. 29 minutes into the academy game, Natko Milan had a good chance to add to the visitors' lead as he almost got on the end of a cross from the right wing but Branislav Rikalovski managed to get to the ball first, and cleared it to safety. Grgo Knežak of Cistaci was booked for kicking the ball away after the whistle. The brave little soldiers of Galaktiko earned a perfect opportunity to level the score, having battled their way around the right side of the defensive line. Larush Zeqiri was the last to touch the ball, netting the 2 - 2 goal. The coach of Cistaci was embarrassed to see his players fail the tactical setup. Many played out of position and the organisation level of the team dropped to inadequate. After 36 minutes Galaktiko's Larush Zeqiri won some bragging rights for the schoolyard. He found his way through the guests' central defence, and put the ball in for 3 - 2 - right between the legs of the keeper! The visitors' Natko Milan got some well deserved attention after that furious rush on the left side, leading to the 3 - 3 equaliser 37 minutes into the match. The referee confirmed the score as 3 - 3 when he signalled for the halftime break. This half the Galaktiko boys hung on to the ball, with 51 percent of possession.

The boys of Cistaci were eager to get some feedback from their coach. His tactical review helped raise the team organisation to solid. The Galaktiko boys gained the lead after 48 minutes of the game: 4 to 3. Evgenij Dzimrev made that look simple with a half-volley shot just below the bar from the centre of the goal area. After 55 minutes, Luka Živković of Cistaci fell dramatically just outside the penalty area. However, the referee was not impressed by the young lad's acting skills and booked him for diving. It was group hug time yet again, when Galaktiko pushed ahead to 5 - 3. Argjend Rexha was the center of attention, having moved deftly through the middle to find his angle, not hesitating when he did. After 60 minutes, Cistaci substituted Srđan Simić for Željko Furčić, hoping for a quick impact on the pitch. After several obvious shirt pulling incidents, Galaktiko's Marjan Pandilovski got himself booked. The Galaktiko youngsters looked rather smug following the 6 - 3 goal, which came about after a left side attack. Shpresor Rapushi stuffed it in after around 65 minutes of the match. Cistaci appeared uncertain how to play and their organisation was only passable. In the 68:th minute, the Cistaci coach decided a substitution may help turn the game around. Niko Alinčić came on, Valentin Privileđo had to leave the fray. Krunoslav Matušin gave his buddies hope as he recorded the 6 - 4 goal for Cistaci. He was assisted by two team mates and one rival defender on the left side of the field. Although the whole team were struggling to impress, Tonko Grđan was singled out as being the problem as he was called off the pitch after 75 minutes. Dragan Jergan was given a chance to change things around. As the match wraps up the score is 6 - 4. Galaktiko didn't seem to want to give the ball away in this half, which resulted in 51 percent of the possession.

Shpresor Rapushi performed especially well for Galaktiko - this one could be a candidate for the senior squad one day. The coach took Branislav Rikalovski aside after the game, telling him it is okay to have a bad day on the pitch as long as you keep trying. The spectators agreed that the most impressive boy in Cistaci today had been Grgo Knežak. Gojko Šitin left the field with tears in his eyes, knowing he had been the worst player on his team.
