Metsis 1 - 4 LIPPO

1657 spectators arrived at Brian Labone Memorial, where weather conditions were pretty good for football. was the appointed referee with assistance provided by and . A 5-4-1 alignment was the formation of choice for Metsis. The following players took the field: Kilpeläinen - Aarresuo, Pakarinen, Ritari, Viiri, Kyttä - de Gier, Muuraiskangas, Kinnunen, Perälä - Hartikainen.

LIPPO had chosen a strategic 4-5-1 formation. The following players had been chosen: Vilander - Pitkäjärvi, Hanhineva, Hietanen, Räihä - Lasonen, Valanta, Partanen, Vasankari, Pussinen - Isola.

It was obvious that Metsis were using their weak pressing skill as their primary tactic. LIPPO were mostly trying to use their passable skill at attacking on the flanks. LIPPO had a good opportunity to attack in the middle, but remembered their instructions to focus on wing attacks instead. LIPPO's Jouni Hietanen managed to lose the defenders as he advanced down the right wing and scored, putting the visitors ahead after 13 minutes. 0 - 1. Always quick and a menace to his opponents, Eetu Lasonen was very close to getting through after 20 minutes, but he could only put the ball into the keeper's arms. After 22 minutes of game time, Herman Vasankari had an excellent opportunity to add to the visitors' lead, clipping a volley hooked in from the right, but Roni Kilpeläinen was in the right place and tipped the ball over for a corner. Metsis put pressure on the visitors' central defence 25 minutes into the game, but Matias Hartikainen couldn't find an opening. With the crowd on their feet chanting wildly, some great moves down the right hand side after 27 minutes gave Metsis a wonderful opportunity to level the score, and Kalle Aarresuo stepped up to the challenge. 1 - 1 It was a fine day for Jan-Chris de Gier on his wing, his cross pass to Matias Hartikainen was especially delicate 38 minutes into the game, but the keeper saved. Metsis had to make a substitution after 38 minutes. Juho Ritari limped off the field and was replaced by Even Nergård. LIPPO took the lead after Henri Hanhineva curved a free kick into the net. 1 - 2 41 minutes into the game, Juha Vilander had to leave the pitch due to a knee injury. In came Jaakoppi Noro. Metsis's Kalle Aarresuo almost tied things up with 42 minutes played after breaking through on the right, but his shot deflected off the post. 1 - 2 was the halftime score. Possession in this half belonged to LIPPO, who controlled the ball 55 percent of the time.

The coach of LIPPO was happy with the game so far, but still wanted to change the line up. After 46 minutes, Lauri Valtamo came on for Teemu Pussinen. A penalty was awarded after 49 minutes, and Henri Hanhineva made the most of his chance to put LIPPO up by another goal. 1 - 3 for the visitors. LIPPO's Lauri Valtamo was shown a yellow card after 50 minutes for slicing down an opponent. Content with how the game was proceeding, the LIPPO coach let Diego Steinhard replace Henri Hanhineva after 80 minutes. An indecisive keeper looked on as a free kick by LIPPO's Jouni Hietanen put the visitors up 1 - 4 after 83 minutes. After this, you could see that the players of LIPPO were more interested in killing time than scoring more goals. The opposing supporters gave the referee an earful when he only gave Ilmari Isola from LIPPO a yellow card after a mistimed challenge from behind 84 minutes into the game. That was far too lenient! Possession in the forty-five minutes was dominated by LIPPO, with 58 percent of the ball.

Most important Metsis player was Even Nergård. Anssi Kinnunen turned in a dismal performance, however. Jaakoppi Noro performed admirably for LIPPO. Ville Räihä on the other hand, had a terrible day. The match ends 1 - 4.
