1597 punters turned up at Rusinapurkki, and despite threatening clouds on the horizon, no rain came. was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Kamel Samet and Micha Geeraerts. Pentinmaa tactics involved an interesting 5-4-1 combination. They fielded: Søltoft - Gattuso, Knödler, Alila, Tero, Gózon - Kumlin, Suomi, Markula, Helin - Kortell.

A 3-4-3 alignment was the formation of choice for wannabee. Lineup: Hopiavuori - Leponen, Rahkola, Sarlund - Louhi, Viitamäki, Sall, Möttönen - Lamberg, Latvakoski, Asunen.

Pentinmaa clearly had decided to counter-attack when they could, taking advantage of their magnificent level with that tactic. With 4 minutes gone, a long pass from the defence of Pentinmaa resulted in a counterattack that set Toni Kortell free through the middle, but the keeper made a spectacular diving save. With 20 minutes played, Antti Viitamäki of wannabee fell dramatically just outside the penalty area. However, the referee was unimpressed, and booked him for diving. wannabee took the lead 24 minutes into the game, making the score 0 - 1 after some elegant movement down the middle. Juho Asunen was the scorer. After 38 minutes wannabee's Antti Viitamäki limped slightly after a late challenge, but he was able to continue. With the clock showing 40 minutes played, a great pass from the defensive line of Pentinmaa resulted in a counterattack that was smoothly brought under control by Gabriel Knödler in the centre of the opposition's penalty area, but his finish went high. The opposing supporters gave the referee an earful when he only gave Marko Möttönen from wannabee a yellow card after a mistimed challenge from behind 41 minutes into the game. That was far too lenient! 43 minutes into the match, the visitors put themselves ahead 0 - 2 as Mika Louhi finished off an attack from the left with a spectacular scissors kick. The players of wannabee now seemed to think the job was done and acted more defensively, just waiting for the ref to blow the final whistle. Pentinmaa's Ilkka Suomi got himself booked for a foul. The teams went for the halftime break at 0 - 2. wannabee claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 68 percent.

Ferenc Gózon hit the corner kick straight to the keeper, but it was mishandled, giving Pentinmaa's Ilkka Suomi an easy chance to knock it in for 1 - 2. After 60 minutes, Ferenc Gózon got through on the right and was very close to equalising for the home side, but didn't get the shot away. Good work by the Pentinmaa defensive line after 75 minutes produced a good counterattack chance, which cut elegantly down the middle of the pitch and found Gabriel Knödler alone in front of the goal, but his shot whistled just wide. wannabee's Antti Lamberg was shown a yellow card after 76 minutes for slicing down an opponent. Possession in this half belonged to wannabee, who controlled the ball 69 percent of the time.

Leevi Tero performed admirably for Pentinmaa. Valtteri Kumlin turned in a dismal performance, however. wannabee's top performer was clearly Antti Viitamäki. Juho Asunen was a disappointment, however. The match ends 1 - 2.
