FC Boozehill started the game in a 5-4-1 formation, whereas Urheilijat lined up in a 4-4-2. For their match strategy, Boozehill had decided to use their world class ability to counter-attack whenever possible. Boozehill took the lead 11 minutes in, as Into Lindqvist broke through on the left and put his shot just beyond the reach of the outstretched keeper, bringing the score to 1 - 0. Boozehill added another goal to their lead as Jani Vuorio struck home for 2 - 0 after an attack from the left set him up unmarked in front of the keeper. A speedy charge from the left side of the field increased Boozehill's lead to 3 - 0 as Risto Kalervo finished it off clinically, firing the shot from a terrible angle. After more pushing and shoving than a pack of helicopter moms trying to get the last appointment for their snowflakes to see the Easter Bunny, Urheilijat's Juho Seppänen finally got himself booked for a foul. The referee showed Urheilijat's Jonne Tyrväinen the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. Riku Kiiskinen was unable to continue, following a slight injury to his left knee after 31 minutes. The player that took his place was Thomas Malmberg. As the captain was no longer on the field, Thomas Malmberg took over the role for Boozehill. 32 minutes into the game, Boozehill were awarded a penalty that Ville Loppukaarre converted into a bigger lead without so much as a how-do-you-do to the visiting keeper. It's 4 - 0 now! A magnificent combination in the middle resulted in Boozehill's Into Lindqvist bringing the lead up to 5 - 0. The teams went for the halftime break at 5 - 0. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that Boozehill would have 78 percent possession in this half was spot on!

After 51 minutes Juho Seppänen made a speedy advance and dropped the ball to Antti Metso who blasted it past the keeper. The score was now 5 - 1. 63 minutes had gone when Boozehill's Ville Loppukaarre found the back of the goal with a beautiful free kick. 6 - 1. After 72 minutes, a couple of quick and successful challenges followed by a shot from just outside the penalty area by Jan Eppert might have resulted in another goal for Boozehill. However, Kunto Pakaslahti made a spectacular save. Ville Loppukaarre increased Boozehill's lead to 7 - 1, connecting with a hooked ball from the right. The away fans are claiming handball, to no avail. He'd already scored two, and with the third, Ville Loppukaarre had a hattrick! Boozehill solidified their lead at the 80 minute mark, as Risto Kalervo snaked the ball through the central line of defense and finished for 8 - 1. 81 minutes into the game, Eelovi Kaitanen had to leave the field due to a rib injury. This gave Miika Ala-Lahti a chance to take to the field instead. Ville Loppukaarre struck a 30 yard free kick home after 84 minutes. 9 - 1 for the home team. It was announced by the fourth official that he estimated stoppage time to be around 5 minutes. This meant there could still be an extra attack or two left in the match! The match ends 9 - 1. Boozehill set the tempo, maintaining 82 percent of possession.

The most outstanding Boozehill player was without a doubt Ville Loppukaarre. Good thing Thomas Malmberg isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance. Most important Urheilijat player was Antti Metso. Speaking of stinking up the place, Kai Valonen sure smelled like the bottom of Batman's shoe after a night of crimefighting in Gotham.
