Clouds darkened the skies at Hardhitters Arena as 27974 spectators turned up for the match. Harvey Clarke was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Toni Dorado and Janko Ivanović. People from all over Skåne had joined up for the rivalry game. Cry "havoc" and let loose the dogs of war! Hardhitters will go to battle in a 3-4-3 formation. They fielded: Ware - Włoskowicz, Paparoulis, Korsgård - Gustavsson, Lundherberg, Gustavsson, Gerhardsson - Ed, Lundhander, Schönfelder.

The head coach flashed hand signals from the sideline and Tidelaget formed up in a 5-4-1 combination. Let's hope the opposing sideline wasn't filming that. The following players took the field: Foley - Alexandersson, Nilsson, Sprangers, Andreasson, Francês - Robertsson, Nippala, Flamstål, Herquist - Sundman.

Tidelaget's game plan was to sit back and absorb the pressure, then use their brilliant ability to break on the counter whenever possible. Proving that a foot massage and a pre-game pedicure can work wonders, J. Sprangers sent a rocket into the box from the corner, finding S. Andreasson, who headed it past the keeper with extreme prejudice. 6 minutes in and it's 0 - 1! It was almost a goal for Tidelaget following J. Nilsson's good header from a corner kick, but the fans will have to wait a little longer as the ball went wide. With 22 minutes played, Tidelaget put themselves up 0 - 2 after an attack from the right, caused by a defensive blunder. The scorer was L. Sundman. 25 minutes in, Tidelaget appeared unsure on how to play and their organization was only weak. J. Nippala increased the visitors' lead by volleying in a pass from the right. 0 - 3. 0 - 3 was the score after the first half. Tidelaget did a good job holding on to the ball, with 52 percent of possession.

A review of the gameplan helped Tidelaget get back to a solid organization to start the second half. After 80 minutes, Tidelaget's M. Alexandersson burst through the central defense and let loose a cannonball of a shot, scoring for 0 - 4. By now, the players of Tidelaget felt that victory was a sure thing and began to play it safe, focusing on defense and not risking too much going forward. After 84 minutes, A. Lundhander of Hardhitters had a good opportunity to reduce the away team's lead with a chance created through the middle, but he scuffed the ball harmlessly past the post. Hardhitters's A. Lundhander was shown a yellow card for standing over the ball and blocking an opponent's quick free kick after 85 minutes. 85 minutes into the game, J. Włoskowicz had to leave the field due to a knee injury. In came K. Hallkvist. Hardhitters's B. Gerhardsson managed a superb strike from the left after 86 minutes that would have left goalkeeper N. Foley without a chance, had it not hit the post. After 88 minutes, Tidelaget's G. Francês burst through the central defense and let loose a cannonball of a shot, scoring for 0 - 5. After 89 minutes, a mistake by the home side's left defense allowed J. Sprangers to get through. He outclassed the home side's keeper, adding another goal for the visitors. 0 - 6. Tidelaget set the tempo, maintaining 58 percent of possession.

Most important Hardhitters player was R. Gustavsson. I can't remember K. Hallkvist ever having a worse night than he just had. Tidelaget's top performer was clearly P. Flamstål. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by G. Francês today. The match ends 0 - 6.
