2 minutes into the game, Bears wanted to bring some new energy to their game. Vivian Leu gave Joonas Suhonen a quick hug as he left the field. Monadh took the lead 13 minutes into the game by 1 - 0, as Craig MacGrory elegantly received a long range pass through the middle, finishing off with a half-volley shot just below the bar.

With 34 minutes played, the visitors broke through on the right after some poor defending. Robert Salmela put the ball away for 1 - 2.

Possession in this half belonged to Monadh, who controlled the ball 63 percent of the time.

Monadh tried to even things up by sending a long ball towards the centrally placed strikers, but the visitors' defence got the best of this rather direct style of play. Monadh's Liam McFarlane put his head to a well placed ball, lifted in from the left, and scored to make the score 2 - 2 with 49 minutes showing on the scoreboard clock. Monadh fans held their breath as John Clinkscale scampered down the left side. He successfully avoided all challenges and cracked home the shot for 3 - 2! The visitors were awarded a penalty by the referee 70 minutes into the match, much to the anger of the home crowd. Thomas Da Rocha took advantage of the situation and scored to make it 3 - 3. After some beautiful movement down the left wing, Pete Rutherford scored for Monadh putting them ahead 4 - 3, after 72 minutes. With 74 minutes played, Joonas Suhonen of Bears fell dramatically just outside the penalty area. However, the referee was unimpressed, and booked him for diving. Cheers filled the stadium as Craig MacGrory broke through the visitors' central defence to put away the ball to increase the lead to 5 - 3 to Monadh. Monadh had most of the ball, with 64 percent of possession.

Monadh's best player was Sam Cairney. Edward Wilson was a disappointment, however. The most dominating Bears player was without a doubt Milan Pavlovič. However, Joonas Suhonen made a disastrous appearance. The match ends 5 - 3.
