A group of 230 people showed up at Electrical Storm, and despite threatening clouds on the horizon, no rain came. The picks for today were: Kofilovski - Kitanovski, Ninevski - Jovchev, Ishmakej, Kantardziev, Milenkoski, Apostolovski - Deçolli, Kıral, Joncheski.

The coach fielded the following talents: Ilkovac - Laleta, Ničić - Panović, Akrapović, Rus, Keglević, Pahljina - Krizman, Gagulić, Jajčević.

2-5-3 was the choice of the day for both coaches. Ver-Boys had orders to turn the direction of play quickly when intercepting opponent's attacks. After 13 minutes Ver-Boys's Dobromir Kitanovski won some bragging rights for the schoolyard. He found his way through the guests' central defence, and put the ball in for 1 - 0 - right between the legs of the keeper! The visitors' equaliser seemed sure to come after 29 minutes, following a one on one situation, but Damjan Kofilovski got the best of it, blocking the shot from Franko Gagulić. Things were going to get worse for the visiting boys. Umut Kıral willed his way through the central defence after 31 minutes, and scored to make it 2 - 0, making the lead more secure. 2 - 0 was the score after 45 minutes. This half the Ver-Boys boys hung on to the ball, with 52 percent of possession.

As the match clock hit 46 minutes, Ver-Boys regrouped to try and keep their initiative in the game. Pavle Milenkoski high-fived Nderim Deçolli as they swapped positions on the team. Zvonimir Akrapović was the target for the corner kick, but his deflection was blocked by the keeper. However, Tigers's Dean Keglević happened to be in the right place for the rebound and scored the 2 - 1 goal as a result. It was group hug time yet again, when Ver-Boys pushed ahead to 3 - 1. Arjon Ishmakej was the center of attention, having moved deftly through the middle to find his angle, not hesitating when he did. Tosho Joncheski was all smiles as the Ver-Boys coach thanked him for taking the score to 4 - 1, tousling his hair. After 52 minutes he had taken advantage of a good exchange of passes on the right and steered the ball into the net. Ver-Boys extended their lead to 5 - 1. The boy of the moment was Andrej Apostolovski, who protected the ball well as he jinked in from the left side to find space for the finish. 60 minutes were showing on the clock when Radek Rus, veering in from the right, got a nice opening and was able to reduce the score for Tigers. That's 5 - 2. Radek Rus gave his buddies hope as he recorded the 5 - 3 goal for Tigers. He was assisted by two team mates and one rival defender on the left side of the field. Umut Kıral should probably have put his team up another goal after 80 minutes, but Miho Ilkovac made a confident save and kept the visitors in the game. Tigers had been practicing defence to attack tactics, and after 81 minutes, Franko Gagulić proved to his coach that they had been listening. He outran the opponents and slipped the ball into the net to make it 5 - 4. The match ends 5 - 4. In this half Ver-Boys were the most energetic, keeping the ball to themselves for 52 percent of the time.

The spectators agreed that the most impressive boy in Ver-Boys today had been Umut Kıral. Damjan Kofilovski left the field with tears in his eyes, knowing he had been the worst player on his team. Tigers's Juraj Krizman had a great game and was congratulated by his team mates. This lad could be going places! On the other hand, Franjo Ničić's performance hadn't been very good at all.
