Metsis 1 - 0 FCKU

1352 punters turned up at Viitakummun Hiekkakenttä, and despite threatening clouds on the horizon, no rain came. was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Ninos Gkekas and Erik Bootz. The match took place on neutral ground. Metsis had chosen a strategic 3-5-2 formation. Lineup: Kautto - Oese, Mather, Lavonen - Ahlqvist, Naskali, Gök, Haili, Valente - Hartikainen, Nurmirinta.

A 4-5-1 alignment was the formation of choice for FCKU. The following players took the field: Hiivala - Lindroos, Arbelius, Kiljunen, Paukkunen - Kankkunen, Tähtinen, Norander, Näsänen, Perävainio - Oxstad.

FCKU demonstrated their disastrous creative tactics on the field. Against a lesser team, FCKU could very well have succeeded with their smart indirect free kick routine after 27 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. FCKU's Jaakko Lindroos was shown a yellow card for standing over the ball and blocking an opponent's quick free kick after 29 minutes. Mika Näsänen of FCKU was booked for kicking the ball away after the whistle. FCKU's Joonas Kankkunen left the field after 37 minutes because of a nasty blow to the shin. His replacement was Matti Levonen. The teams went for the halftime break at 0 - 0. Possession in this half belonged to FCKU, who controlled the ball 52 percent of the time.

Jorma Nurmirinta would have preferred to play on, but his coach decided otherwise. Samuli Särkipato entered the game for Metsis as the match clock showed 60 minutes. A free kick aimed at the keeper's far post almost gave FCKU the lead 64 minutes in, but the ball just wasn't able to squirm its way through the defensive wall. In a rapid move 66 minutes into the match, Carlos Valente of Metsis lost his man and passed the ball to the unmarked Matias Hartikainen who easily hit it home to make it 1 - 0. Luckily the ref didn't see him taunting the opposing fans in celebration - naughty boy! Coming from the right, Matias Hartikainen almost managed to score another goal for Metsis, but his header was tipped over the bar by the visitors' keeper. The Metsis players could smell victory in the air. Antero Naskali wasn't in a hurry to leave the field as he was substituted for Federico Mazza after 70 minutes. Possession in the forty-five minutes was dominated by FCKU, with 51 percent of the ball.

Ville Kautto performed admirably for Metsis. Enn Oese was a disappointment, however. The most dominating FCKU player was without a doubt Patrick Norander. Matti Levonen on the other hand, had a terrible day. The match ends 1 - 0.
