The clouds were hanging menacingly over the stadium today. Starters: Dineev - Castro Lima, Pádua - Busby, Godleś, Rongved, Fredriksen, Kratky - Kristiansen, , Kathan.

The following players had been chosen: Sonzogni - Bacenetti, Németh, Tjalve - Çevikel, Thorsteinsen, Benoît, Fołta, Stupar - Monarchi, Romaniuc.

It was to be a contest between two different football philosophies, since the home team started the game with a 2-5-3 formation while the visitors instead opted for 3-5-2. Pål Kristian Thorsteinsen had been given instructions to man mark Ryszard Godleś. And he carried his orders out perfectly, following close, reducing the options for his mark. Thomas Monarchi had a good opportunity to give FC Storm the lead as he charged down the right and struck the ball towards the top corner, but the home team's goalkeeper made the save. Thomas Monarchi came close to putting the visiting team one up 17 minutes into the match, following a solo raid down the middle, but Valeriy Dineev managed to tip the ball to a corner. The guests took the lead 25 minutes into the match, after a right-side attack resulted in Costin Romaniuc scoring to make it 0 - 1. After 32 minutes, Helge Kristiansen made a dash down the middle past the away team's defenders to score the goal that made it 1 - 1. At 35 minutes played, Helge Kristiansen came in from the right with the intention of giving Hammers the lead, but his rocket of a shot rattled the crossbar. The teams went for the halftime break at 1 - 1. Hammers enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 52 percent of possession.

Slack defending gave Hammers a chance to take the lead with 60 minutes played, but Tommy Kathan's cross from the left flank was fumbled in front of the goal and easily dealt with by the opposition. 62 minutes in, Hammers's Tommy Kathan received a yellow card for going into a challenge studs first. Zygmunt Fołta of FC Storm was booked for kicking the ball away after the whistle. Hammers broke through on the left 76 minutes into the game, with Rani Fredriksen firing in from an acute angle to give the home side a 2 - 1 lead. Costin Romaniuc came close to levelling the score 79 minutes into the game, as he was set up with a through ball coming in from the left, but his shot hit the post. The visitors kept the pressure on to tie the game when, after 81 minutes, Thomas Monarchi broke through the centre and found himself alone with the keeper. Valeriy Dineev made a great block, though. The referee decided to let play continue for an additional 1 minute beyond the regular 90 minutes. Ambrósio Sá increased the lead for Hammers to 3 - 1, getting a head onto a hooked ball from the right. The ball looked to have taken a deflection on the way in, but he's claiming it! The match ends 3 - 1. Possession in this half belonged to Hammers, who controlled the ball 52 percent of the time.

Hammers's best player was Tommy Kathan. Helge Kristiansen turned in a dismal performance, however. FC Storm's top performer was clearly Costin Romaniuc. On the other hand, Pål Kristian Thorsteinsen's play was disheartening.
