Due to an all-day shower, 2469 paying spectators got to see a match on a pitch-turned-bog at The Warren. was the appointed referee with assistance provided by and . Rabbits tactics involved an interesting 3-5-2 combination. The following players had been chosen: Stadhouders - Friðriksson, Eyjólfsson, Mattason - Friðriksson, Liiv, Hugason, Ingielewicz, Geirfinnsson - Pumarino, Hauksson.

Falcons decided to use a 2-5-3 set up. They fielded: Azevedo - Orzescu, Motyčák - Özbeken, Páleník, Golenko, Hurdálek, Simão - Çelaj, Rolník, Hubáček.

Rabbits were relying on their solid ability to counter-attack. Using their counter-attacking abilities was the strategy of choice for Falcons on this day, taking advantage of their poor level with that tactic. Thighs bulging, Arnór Friðriksson charged past the weaker players, seemingly oblivious to the rain. As the 15 minute mark approached, the Falcons coach decided it was time for a substitution. Daniel 'The Darkness' Rolník reluctantly made way for Merijn 'Poliorcetes' Esseling on the pitch. 16 minutes into the game, Falcons seemed a little tentative in their play as their organization fell to solid. The terraces were silenced after 31 minutes when Falcons's Oldřich 'The Ghost' Páleník put the guests ahead 0 - 1, following an attack on the right. Rabbits's Gaweł Ingielewicz was shown a yellow card for standing over the ball and blocking an opponent's quick free kick after 32 minutes. Célio Simão, who often relies on his speed, had a rotten day on the drenched grass. Ionuţ-Adrian Orzescu had a hard time on the waterlogged pitch - his trademark technique was nowhere in sight today. After 41 minutes, an incisive pass through the middle gave Tomáš 'Thanatos' Hubáček a chance to increase the lead for Falcons, and he did not disappoint. The score was then 0 - 2. After 42 minutes Rabbits's Arinbjörn Geirfinnsson limped slightly after a late challenge, but he was able to continue. After 43 minutes, a mistake by the home side's left defence allowed Edi 'EC10' Çelaj to get through. He outclassed the home side's keeper, adding another goal for the visitors. 0 - 3. By now, the players in Falcons felt that victory was guaranteed and began to play it safe, focusing on defence and not risking too much going forward. It was 0 - 3 at the break. Possession in this half belonged to Falcons, who controlled the ball 69 percent of the time.

The Falcons players spent the break getting a rerun of the team's tactical organisation and regained a solid organisation when the game started again. The Falcons free kick 58 minutes into the match seemed wasted, as the shot was both short and off target. But was this actually a plan? The ball landed at the feet of Oldřich 'The Ghost' Páleník, who was completely unmarked in the box. That's 0 - 4! After 59 minutes, there was a bit of a mixup on the field as Falcons found themselves out of position and their organisation level dropped to passable. The referee showed Falcons's İzak 'The Scourge' Özbeken the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. The coach of Falcons was happy with the game so far, but still wanted to change the line up. After 75 minutes, Manuele Prestandrea came on for Célio Simão. After 76 minutes, Falcons felt secure enough to make a tactical change. Lubomír 'Anthropophagus' Hurdálek and Manuele Prestandrea assumed each others positions on the field. A defender managed to keep the ball from crossing the goal-line after a curling shot coming in from the right from Tomáš 'Thanatos' Hubáček after 79 minutes, and prevented Falcons from going up another goal. In the 80 minute, Rabbits were awarded a free kick as their counter attack dried up. The ball was sent in high over the penalty box and, in what looked like a well-rehearsed move, it was headed backwards to reach Benoný Friðriksson, who placed it into the net with a single touch. 1 - 4. After 82 minutes a combination in the middle resulted in a through ball for Merijn 'Poliorcetes' Esseling who increased Falcons's lead to 1 - 5. 85 minutes into the game, Falcons seemed to suffer a certain amount of confusion and they fell to a weak level of organisation. Falcons had most of the ball, with 78 percent of possession.

Most important Rabbits player was Marco 'The Sloth' Stadhouders. On the other hand, Arinbjörn Geirfinnsson's play was disheartening. Falcons's best player was Oldřich 'The Ghost' Páleník. Ionuţ-Adrian Orzescu turned in a dismal performance, however. The match ends 1 - 5.
