The spectators at the stadium today were in for an afternoon of sunshine. For some players the sunny weather was bad news. It made Powerful and Quick players a bit sluggish. For Technical players, it was instead an advantage, allowing them to shine on the pitch. Starters: Strasser - Makaryan, Alaia, Sieder, Zeitlinger - Gillhaus, Bekooi, Heller, Paar - Vyushin, Funes.

They fielded: Kokubi - Philips, Angheluţă, Chávez - Spooren, Grimes, Ligori, Frutiger, Jean - Ashpazbashi, Phillips.

It was to be a contest between two different football philosophies, since the home team started the game with a 4-4-2 formation while the visitors instead opted for 3-5-2. SiLSimmering decided to play creatively at a formidable level. It was obvious that athletics were using their passable pressing skill as their primary tactic. Making his way up the middle 33 minutes into the match, Anselmo Funes almost managed to squeeze a goal past the visitors' keeper, but the alert Patrick Kokubi blocked it to keep the score level. athletics were pushed back, and had many dangerous counterattacks. An impressive one came 34 minutes into the match, but Michael 'Tchenko' Phillips narrowly missed the free kick attempt that was awarded as a result of a foul. SiLSimmering made a bid to take the lead as a ball coming in on the right hand side left Vitaliy Vyushin completely alone with keeper Patrick Kokubi, who made a spectacular block. SiLSimmering's Silvester Heller made use of his speed to get free of the defence, but he still couldn't get a shot off 37 minutes into the match. At this time in the match, athletics were using their skill at pressing to successfully stifle the game. The home crowd breathed a collective sigh of relief when Michael 'Tchenko' Phillips was unable to put the ball in the net after his show of skill down the left 41 minutes into the match. He was seen beating the pitch in frustration at missing such a good chance to give his team the lead! 42 minutes in, SiLSimmering's Anselmo Funes received a yellow card for going into a challenge studs first. SiLSimmering's Hendrik Gillhaus got himself booked for a foul. Halftime score was 0 - 0. athletics claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 61 percent.

It was a fine day for Bertrand 'chachou' Jean on his wing, his cross pass to Gary Grimes was especially delicate 63 minutes into the game, but the keeper saved. With the clock showing 65 minutes played, a great pass from the defensive line of SiLSimmering resulted in a counterattack that was smoothly brought under control by Vitaliy Vyushin in the centre of the opposition's penalty area, but his finish went high. 68 minutes of the match played, and a comedy of errors by the home side gave the visitors a chance at the lead, but Ciprian Angheluţă, after finding himself dashing down on goal from the left with only the keeper to beat, sliced his shot horribly wide. As the 70 minute mark approached, the athletics coach decided it was time for a substitution. Gary Grimes reluctantly made way for Carlo Maria De Mitri on the pitch. With 75 minutes played, the visitors broke through on the right after some poor defending. Michael 'Tchenko' Phillips put the ball away for 0 - 1. Claudio Ligori wanted to play on, but the athletics coach had other ideas, and he was replaced 75 minutes into the game by Lazzaro Falegnami. The coach of athletics was happy with the game so far, but still wanted to change the line up. After 80 minutes, Olivier Philips came on for Rens Spooren. The home crowd cheered when, after 80 minutes, Michael 'Tchenko' Phillips's charge up the middle resulted in the keeper making one of his best saves of the day. The opposing supporters gave the referee an earful when he only gave Michele Frutiger from athletics a yellow card after a mistimed challenge from behind 84 minutes into the game. That was far too lenient! As the match nears its end, the referee has deemed it appropriate to add 1 minute as stoppage time. The match ends 0 - 1. Possession in this half belonged to athletics, who controlled the ball 56 percent of the time.

Anselmo Funes performed admirably for SiLSimmering. However, Hendrik Gillhaus made a disastrous appearance. The most dominating athletics player was without a doubt Michael 'Tchenko' Phillips. Patrick Kokubi on the other hand, had a terrible day.
