The 1132 spectators at Villi Areena were in for an afternoon of sunshine. Marco Ortiz de Galisteo was the appointed referee with assistance provided by and Paulo Dias. A 4-5-1 alignment was the formation of choice for Metsis. Lineup: Ritari - Nergård, Pakarinen, Aarresuo, Kyttä - Perälä, Zetterner, Gustafsson, Vihijärvi, de Gier - Nurmirinta.

wannabee decided to use a 3-4-3 set up. Starters: Hopiavuori - Sarlund, Rahkola, Leponen - Viitamäki, Louhi, Koskiranta, Möttönen - Lamberg, Latvakoski, Asunen.

The home side put themselves ahead 1 - 0 after 14 minutes courtesy of a breakthrough from Jan-Chris de Gier, who scored with a stunning volley following a cross from the right wing. Metsis put themselves up 2 - 0 when Jorma Nurmirinta broke through on the right, leaving the entire defence trailing in his wake. After 34 minutes wannabee's Antti Lamberg limped slightly after a late challenge, but he was able to continue. Halftime score was 2 - 0. This part of the game was a standoff between the teams in terms of possession.

The Metsis players could smell victory in the air. Ove Zetterner wasn't in a hurry to leave the field as he was substituted for Albino Wittemberg after 65 minutes. After 69 minutes, wannabee switched Mika Louhi with Matti Korpela, hoping for a quick impact on the pitch. Metsis put in a good effort on the right, but Jan-Chris de Gier saw his volley fly wide of the mark 69 minutes into the game. The opposing supporters gave the referee an earful when he only gave Esa Latvakoski from wannabee a yellow card after a mistimed challenge from behind 70 minutes into the game. That was far too lenient! Although the whole team were struggling to impress, wannabee's Juho Asunen was singled out as being the problem as he was called off the pitch after 73 minutes. Ari Sukanen was given a chance to change things around. wannabee claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 51 percent.

Metsis's top performer was clearly Veikka Vihijärvi. However, Jussi Kyttä made a disastrous appearance. Matti Korpela performed admirably for wannabee. Ari Sukanen on the other hand, had a terrible day. The match ends 2 - 0.
