Due to an all-day shower, the spectators got to see a match on a pitch-turned-bog. While a boggy pitch like this was an advantage for physical players, it really didn't help those who relied on speed or technique. Starters: Bockum-Dolffs - Wannsee, Morawek, Hupfer, Heimel - Boldin, von der Groeben, Wolgast, Puttmann - Flath, Kajuth.

They fielded: Emery - Waalkes, Howell - Boudreau, Barragán, Bonds, Montazeri, Orozco - Mccormick, Coursey, Alonso.

Phoenix Magdeburg started the game in a 4-4-2 formation, whereas Chicago Bisons lined up in a 2-5-3 formation. 4 minutes into the match and the home team took a 1 - 0 lead after breaking through on the left. The scorer for Magdeburg was Siegmar Puttmann. Rubén 'Loco' Orozco came close to levelling the score 18 minutes into the game, as he was set up with a through ball coming in from the left, but his shot hit the post. With 19 minutes gone, Siegmar Puttmann suddenly found himself completely free on the right wing when a counterattack by Magdeburg caught their opponents by surprise. Only a great save by the opposing keeper prevented him from scoring. A magnificent combination in the middle resulted in Magdeburg's Hans-Rolf Flath increasing the lead to 2 - 0. Magdeburg were great at switching from defence to attack, and after 39 minutes, Marlon Morawek swept through the middle on a counterattack, making the score 3 - 0. A free kick just outside of the visitors' penalty area after 42 minutes could have resulted in another goal, but Dennis Emery got a hand out and tipped the ball over the bar. 3 - 0 was the score after the first half. Possession in this half belonged to Chicago, who controlled the ball 52 percent of the time.

Arjang 'Monty' Montazeri had a couple of good opportunities to reply after getting through the middle of the opposition defence, but the home team's keeper Reinhardt Bockum-Dolffs was simply unbeatable. The opposing supporters gave the referee an earful when he only gave Brady Coursey from Chicago a yellow card after a mistimed challenge from behind 76 minutes into the game. That was far too lenient! The home team's fans were upset when, after 77 minutes, the visiting Rubén 'Loco' Orozco broke through the central defence and kicked the ball past the keeper. 3 - 1 was the score. 80 minutes in, Brady Coursey made an incredible run up the middle and nearly reduced the home side's lead, but Reinhardt Bockum-Dolffs refused to let the ball slip by him. A speedy charge from the left side of the field increased the lead of Magdeburg to 4 - 1 as Siegmar Puttmann finished it off competently, firing in from an acute angle. It was announced by the referee that he estimated stoppage time to be around 2 minutes. This meant there could still be an extra attack or two left in the match! The match ends 4 - 1. Magdeburg claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 51 percent.

Most important Magdeburg player was Peeter von der Groeben. Ekfried Hupfer on the other hand, had a terrible day. Arjang 'Monty' Montazeri performed admirably for Chicago. However, Dennis Emery made a disastrous appearance.
