It was an exceptionally sunny day for the crowd of 3116 that came out to Ashwick. Benjamin Kasella was the appointed referee with assistance provided by and . A 4-5-1 alignment was the formation of choice for Cabuie. The following players took the field: Forato - Kommatias, Sardagna, Dench, Karampas - Clark, Wooldridge, Defalchidu, Encuţu, de Sousa - Lenarčić.

Rochdale had chosen a strategic 4-5-1 formation. The following players had been chosen: Krústev - Sánchez Barriga, Porter, Ward, Yates - Willis, Lukić, Agrawal, Büsser, Persico - Golovnya.

Pressing was the tactic of the day for Cabuie, taking advantage of their inadequate level with that tactic. Rochdale were mostly trying to use their titanic skill at attacking on the flanks. Cabuie pressed their opponents, causing the game to be a bit of a stalemate at times. They were singing the praises of Kieren Dench 41 minutes into the match after his speculative chip from the middle of the penalty box found its way over the visitors' keeper to make the score 1 - 0 to Cabuie. Rochdale had a good opportunity to attack in the middle, but remembered their instructions to focus on wing attacks instead. Scott Porter made a run for the goal 43 minutes into the game but the home team's left back managed to sort the situation out in the end. Cabuie's Simos Kommatias was shown a yellow card after 44 minutes for slicing down an opponent. 44 minutes into the game, Mischa Büsser had to leave the pitch due to a knee injury. In came Sérgio Palmelão. Cabuie's Rui Gaspar de Sousa saw his fine effort strike the top of the bar following some good work up the middle by his teammates after 44 minutes. The opposing supporters gave the referee an earful when he only gave Nitin Agrawal from Rochdale a yellow card after a mistimed challenge from behind 44 minutes into the game. That was far too lenient! It was 1 - 0 at the break. Cabuie had most of the ball, with 60 percent of possession.

The sun seemed to put Alan Ward in a great mood, and he showed off his technical skills all match long. Simos Kommatias's lack of experience almost gave Rochdale a goal after 79 minutes, but the shot went right into the keeper's arms. Cabuie's Hale Clark got himself booked for a foul. Sérgio Palmelão hit the corner kick straight to the keeper, but it was mishandled, giving Rochdale's Myroslav Golovnya an easy chance to knock it in for 1 - 1. Myroslav Golovnya had a good opportunity to give Rochdale 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. 86 minutes in, Rochdale's Alan Ward received a yellow card for going into a challenge studs first. Cabuie claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 59 percent.

Still tied after 90 minutes, the match continued into extra time. With 105 minutes played Vito Defalchidu almost put the home team one ahead on a cross coming in from the right, but the shot went just wide. The referee showed Cabuie's Steele Wooldridge the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. Rochdale almost scored after a swift counterattack 115 minutes into the game, but Myroslav Golovnya put the shot from the left flank just outside the goal. After extra time, the game was still tied and a penalty shoot-out ensued.

Cabuie's Rui Gaspar de Sousa showed he has nerves of steel when it comes to penalties, easily changing the score to 2 - 1. Rochdale's Nitin Agrawal coolly put the ball past Vittorio Forato. 2 - 2. Cabuie's Žarko Lenarčić kept his cool as he faced down Ivan Krústev. His composure paid off as he scored easily for 3 - 2. Rochdale's Alan Ward looked like he knew exactly where he wanted to put the ball, but unfortunately his shot went wide of the left hand post. Still 3 - 2. Cabuie's Steele Wooldridge made no mistake. Ivan Krústev didn't have a chance. 4 - 2. Oh, the sweet feet of technical Scott Porter... His left one gave Rochdale a lovely goal. 4 - 3. Cabuie's Vittorio Forato was relaxed as he smoothly put the ball in the net. 5 - 3! Rochdale's Clint Willis made no mistake. Vittorio Forato didn't have a chance. 5 - 4. Cabuie's Alexandru Encuţu cockily booted the ball with a short-and-fast instep. The penalty, going just wide of the mark, didn't produce a goal. Rochdale's Željko Lukić made no mistake. Vittorio Forato didn't have a chance. 5 - 5. Cabuie's Vito Defalchidu coolly put the ball past Ivan Krústev. 6 - 5. Rochdale's Myroslav Golovnya showed he has nerves of steel when it comes to penalties, easily changing the score to 6 - 6. Clearly nervous from the start, Cabuie's Roberto Sardagna took a long run up, but could only blast the ball over the bar. The score remains 6 - 6. Rochdale's Dean 'The Guv'nor' Yates was relaxed as he smoothly put the ball in the net. 6 - 7! Cabuie's top performer was clearly Žarko Lenarčić. On the other hand, Simos Kommatias's play was disheartening. Myroslav Golovnya performed admirably for Rochdale. Sérgio Palmelão on the other hand, had a terrible day. The match ends 6 - 7.
