Oppegaard Lobster Warriors entered the field in a 4-5-1 formation. The visitors, Vålers attack dogs, chose to start the game with a 4-4-2 lineup. Many thought Eirik Grindheim ought to have been awarded a penalty 22 minutes into the game, as he went down trying to dribble around Bjørn Hygen after a determined run through the middle. Against a lesser team, lobster could very well have succeeded with their smart indirect free kick routine after 38 minutes. A trio of passes took the ball all the way past the defenders, but by then the intended recipient was already blocked off and the keeper could make a leisurely save. lobster broke through on the left 42 minutes into the game, with Gyde van der Wouden firing in from an acute angle to give the home side a 1 - 0 lead. Cheers filled the stadium as Bjørn Sævik broke through the visitors' central defence to put away the ball to increase the lead to 2 - 0 to lobster. Although the whole team were struggling to impress, Vålers's Knut Nerhus was singled out as being the problem as he was called off the pitch after 43 minutes. Thor Solberg was given a chance to change things around. Vålers's counterattacks created a good chance for Erling Sørbø on the right after 44 minutes, but he could only look on with dismay as his strike rebounded off the crossbar. With 44 minutes played, Leif Røkeberg of Vålers fell dramatically just outside the penalty area. However, the referee was unimpressed, and booked him for diving. It was 2 - 0 at the break. lobster claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 60 percent.

After 50 minutes, the away team failed to deal with a good exchange of passes on the right, and Eirik Grindheim gave the lobster supporters even more to cheer about when he increased the lead to 3 - 0. Bjørn Hygen was caught napping as Asbjørn Dybwad lifted a ball over him following a free kick, but the ball hit the bar, rebounding into the keeper's arms. Coming from the right, Asbjørn Dybwad almost managed to score another goal for lobster, but his header was tipped over the bar by the visitors' keeper. lobster managed to extend their lead to 4 - 0 when Gyde van der Wouden cut in neatly from the left side and struck a fine shot past the away team's goalkeeper. lobster put in a good effort on the right, but Gyde van der Wouden saw his volley fly wide of the mark 70 minutes into the game. The referee decided to let play continue for an additional 1 minute beyond the regular 90 minutes. With 90 minutes played, Tony Oxdahl had a fantastic opportunity to reply but his shot from the middle flew harmlessly wide of the goal. The match ends 4 - 0. Possession in this half belonged to lobster, who controlled the ball 63 percent of the time.

The most dominating lobster player was without a doubt Gyde van der Wouden. However, Frode Jensrud made a disastrous appearance. Vålers's top performer was clearly Tony Oxdahl. On the other hand, Frank Svendsen's play was disheartening.
