Clear skies welcomed the 240 people in attendance at Gigantinho da ZN. The picks for today were: Calahorra - Mota Prado, Amorim Silva - Pagodeiro, Gaeta, Lacerda, Amapaense, Leitão - Gusmão, de Noronha, Telles.

The boys who got to play today were: Mitanovski - Grameno, Lazarev - Cikarski, Kadare, Panevski, Muzaka, Kezaroski - Blazevski, Lluci, Shapchevski.

Both teams came out with a similar approach to the match, having chosen to start with a 2-5-3 formation. PIONERI demonstrated their creative tactics on the field. After 5 minutes, Gafanhotos found themselves in a tricky position for a free kick. They tried a variation that they had practiced in training, and the kick was sent into the penalty area just in front of the keeper. However, the defense was on the ball and bottled up the attack without much effort. Gafanhotos almost put themselves up after 18 minutes as Carlos Eugenio de Noronha got through, but he lost focus and scuffed the ball wide. After 24 minutes, PIONERI scored as Mitre Cikarski's dangerous low cross was cleverly tucked in at the near post by Vanco Shapchevski. 0 - 1. After 37 minutes, Dunga Amapaense dashed through the middle and left the opposing defenders behind to score the 1 - 1 goal. The referee confirmed the score as 1 - 1 when he blew his whistle for halftime. In this half Gafanhotos were the most energetic, keeping the ball to themselves for 61 percent of the time.

Gafanhotos pushed through the central midfield, led by Émerson Mota Prado who also had a fine chance to give his team the go-ahead goal after 54 minutes. However, the shot hit the crossbar. Given a free kick at a sharp angle, PIONERI went for a variation that some of the parents may recognize from training. A square ball pulled the defense out and let Malen Muzaka slip through at goal. When the ball came his way, he didn't hesitate and it's 1 - 2, 61 minutes into the game. Gafanhotos's Eduardo Telles made a successful breakthrough attempt 69 minutes into the game and should have leveled the score after some good work down the right, but instead he clipped it over the bar. After 78 minutes, Gafanhotos's Fernando Gusmão found an opening in the visitors' left side defense, but his shot was handled easily by the keeper. The corner kick went to Ricky Leitão who headed it straight at goal, but unfortunately also straight at the keeper. He fumbled the ball though, giving Gafanhotos's Albiges Lacerda a perfect opening to score! 2 - 2. 80 minutes had passed when Gafanhotos came through on the left side. After a nice give-and-go, Eduardo Telles gave the home side a 3 - 2 lead with a shot from a very narrow angle. At the final whistle, the score is 3 - 2. Gafanhotos didn't seem to want to give the ball away in this half, resulting in 61 percent of possession.

Ivan Gaeta performed especially well for Gafanhotos - he could be a candidate for the senior squad one day. The coach took Nicolás Calahorra aside after the game, telling him it is okay to have a bad day on the field as long as you keep trying. PIONERI's Vanco Shapchevski had a great game and was congratulated by his teammates. This boy could be going places! Jetan Grameno showed he still has a lot to learn.
