Overcast weather free of rain made for a crowd turnout of 857 at The Armoury today. was the appointed referee with assistance provided by and Nuno Sabugueiro. Bellevue started off with a 2-5-3 lineup. They fielded: Turagabea - Vaughan, Filipović - Paokis, May, Chan, Kimera, Văn Cao - Charmawawina, Mansfield, Akhade.

Cobras decided to use a 5-3-2 set up. The following players took the field: Danaei Fard - Goodwin, Gibbs, Girip, Pihema, Sadler - Głuszak, Scuffi, Staples - Sherman, Alves.

Using their counter-attacking abilities was the strategy of choice for Cobras on this day, taking advantage of their formidable level with that tactic. Good work by the Cobras defensive line after 10 minutes produced a good counterattack chance, which cut elegantly down the middle of the pitch and found Gilceu 'Playboy' Alves alone in front of the goal, but his shot whistled just wide. Cobras's Rowan Gibbs was shown a yellow card after 24 minutes for slicing down an opponent. In a fantastic display of determination, Bellevue's Bronx Turagabea forced himself to his feet, after an opponent viciously knocked him down. Cobras's defence sent a ball soaring up the middle on a beautiful counterattack with 33 minutes gone, but Cătălin Girip's finish was met by the reaching hands of the keeper. 35 minutes in, the referee awarded Bellevue a penalty. Cô Văn Cao coolly slotted it home for a 1 - 0 lead. 1 - 0 was the score after the first half. Bellevue enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 63 percent of possession.

Riley Mansfield wanted to play on, but the Bellevue coach had other ideas, and he was replaced 46 minutes into the game by Craig Fatt. Cobras caught their opponents out with a clever counterattack down the right wing 51 minutes into the match. Kostya Sherman was able to finish off the move - 1 - 1. Cobras's Jakub 'Grizzly' Głuszak was shown a yellow card for standing over the ball and blocking an opponent's quick free kick after 55 minutes. Rowan Gibbs behaved like an inexperienced youth player after 68 minutes as he gave the ball away to Caleb Charmawawina. Lucky for him though, there was no goal. Cobras had to manage with a reduced squad after 79 minutes, as Robbie Pihema got sent off for a needless foul away from the game's action. With 81 minutes played, the home side managed to get a 2 - 1 lead as Brendon Chan flipped the ball in after a cross from the right. After 82 minutes, there was a bit of a mixup on the field as Bellevue found themselves out of position and their organisation level dropped to weak. Bellevue claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 60 percent.

Troy Vaughan performed admirably for Bellevue. On the other hand, Prashant Akhade's play was disheartening. Cobras's best player was Jakub 'Grizzly' Głuszak. Cătălin Girip was a disappointment, however. The match ends 2 - 1.
