Using their counter-attacking abilities was the strategy of choice for Helvetia on this day, taking advantage of their outstanding level with that tactic. The opposing supporters gave the referee an earful when he only gave Erik 'Toto' Eben from Mammut a yellow card after a mistimed challenge from behind 26 minutes into the game. That was far too lenient! In a fantastic display of determination, Helvetia's Claude Wider forced himself to his feet, after an opponent viciously knocked him down. The visiting Servando Aranguren was booed thoroughly by the home crowd 28 minutes into the game, after he broke through the middle and scored, resulting in the visitors taking the lead. 0 - 1 was the score. It was a hot and sunny day, and several players seemed worn out. Maybe this was why Servando Aranguren found an unusual amount of space for his snappy footwork. With 32 minutes played, a quick exchange of passes on the left wing freed Enzo 'ItalianStallion' Ziza of Mammut to slip through the defence and score another goal for the visitors. That made the score 0 - 2. Had it not been for one of the home defenders, Erik 'Toto' Eben would have put Mammut up another goal 34 minutes into the match with his audacious lob from the right wing. Mammut came close to extending their lead as Keylor Morera delivered a low effort on goal from the right after 36 minutes, but the angle was too narrow and the shot went harmlessly into the side netting. Helvetia had to make a substitution after 39 minutes. Ciro Costella limped off the field and was replaced by Gerrardo Isner. Halftime score was 0 - 2. Possession in the forty-five minutes was dominated by Mammut, with 61 percent of the ball.

48 minutes into the match, the visitors put themselves ahead 0 - 3 as Servando Aranguren finished off an attack from the left with a spectacular scissors kick. Confident in their lead, Mammut's players relaxed and focused more on defending the lead than increasing it. 71 minutes into the match, Servando Aranguren came through the middle and almost added to his team's lead, but the shot went wide. Good work by the Helvetia defensive line after 72 minutes produced a good counterattack chance, which cut elegantly down the middle of the pitch and found Lukas Eichmann alone in front of the goal, but his shot whistled just wide. The fierce heat made it important to save breath, and after a few swift runs Burkhart 'Wirbelwind' Wück found it hard to get back into position. Claude Wider got left behind when Mammut's Enzo 'ItalianStallion' Ziza left scorch marks in the turf 87 minutes, finishing off with a blisteringly swift strike. 0-4! Mammut's Diederich Schmidts missed a penalty shot 88 minutes into the contest. The shot produced was way too weak, allowing the keeper to collect it at his own leisure. Servando Aranguren could have put his team up another goal 89 minutes into the game, after a rush down the left, but his closing shot hit the post. With a penalty awarded after 89 minutes, Helvetia's Remo Burgherr placed the ball low and to the keeper's right, impossible to block. 1 - 4. 89 minutes into the game, Gerrardo Isner had to leave the pitch due to a knee injury. In came Albrecht Greenberg. Mammut enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 60 percent of possession.

Albrecht Balsbach performed admirably for Helvetia. On the other hand, Albrecht Greenberg's play was disheartening. Mammut's top performer was clearly Georg 'Quälix' Schindelar. However, Ansfried 'Adlerauge' Widhalm made a disastrous appearance. The match ends 1 - 4.
