The 21898 spectators at Newcastle_United FC Arena were in for an afternoon of sunshine. Fredrik H. Fjällborg was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Andrey Tsybin and Ivo van Gorkum. The intense heat made it hard for players relying on strength or speed to shine. On the other hand, it provided perfect conditions for the more technical players. Starters: Garnai - Conchon, Revheim, Paukštas, Teigen, Roland - Gonzales, Ouanes, Valencina - De Castris, Olaya.

The following players had been chosen: Dagestad - Steen, Wiers - Myrdal, Tønnessen, Ramfeldt, Juul, Husmo - Gulbrandsen, Lauten, Njærheim.

It was to be a contest between two different football philosophies, since the home team started the game with a 5-3-2 formation while the visitors instead opted for 2-5-3. Counter-attacking seemed to be the preferred strategy of Newcastle_United, taking advantage of their magnificent level with that tactic. It was an obvious ambition of Fresvik to use their magnificent ability at attacking on the flanks. Fresvik had a good opportunity to attack in the middle, but remembered their instructions to focus on wing attacks instead. Newcastle_United caught their opponents out with a clever counterattack down the right wing 5 minutes into the match. Daniel Valencina was able to finish off the move - 1 - 0. An equalising goal was close at hand, but Anders Wiers clipped a free kick just wide of the goal. Ole Roland got left behind when Fresvik's Kim Gulbrandsen left scorch marks in the turf 10 minutes, finishing off with a blisteringly swift strike. 1-1! Pål Husmo had a good try after 13 minutes, coming in on a fine move from the left, but the ball went wide. Fresvik had a magnificent opportunity after 19 minutes as Anders Wiers hit the ball hard from the edge of the penalty box. However, the shot went wide. Newcastle_United mounted an inspired counterattack down the right wing after 20 minutes, but Daniel Valencina was unable to convert from short range. The teams went for the halftime break at 1 - 1. Possession in this half belonged to Fresvik, who controlled the ball 68 percent of the time.

Some good play on the left wing created an opportunity for the visitors 58 minutes into the match, and Rolf Myrdal wasn't about to let it go by. He got past the defenders and fired a shot that the keeper just missed. 1 - 2 for the visitors. After 86 minutes of play, Ricardo Olaya evened things up for Newcastle_United with an impressive goal coming up the middle. 2 - 2. Antoine Conchon gave Newcastle_United the lead as he successfully challenged the guests' central defenders, then slotted the ball into the bottom corner, giving the keeper no chance. 3 - 2 The match ends 3 - 2. Fresvik had most of the ball, with 62 percent of possession.

Newcastle_United's best player was Carl Revheim. Daniel Valencina on the other hand, had a terrible day. The most dominating Fresvik player was without a doubt Bjørn Tønnessen. However, Arne Dagestad made a disastrous appearance.
