Cobras 0 - 1 Saxons

2529 spectators arrived at Cahill Stadium, where weather conditions were pretty good for football. Peter Steiger-Haberfelner was the appointed referee with assistance provided by and . Cobras started off with a 5-2-3 lineup. They fielded: Danaei Fard - Głuszak, Pihema, Nazaré, Girip, Gibbs - Sadler, Boon - Sherman, Ash, Pantić.

A 4-5-1 alignment was the formation of choice for Saxons. Lineup: Głaszczka - Næs, Janecki, Hansen, Tarvainen - Haraldsen, Christensen, á Nesi, Karbech Mouritsen, Bareyre - Bjegović.

For their match strategy, Cobras had decided to use their excellent ability to counter-attack whenever possible. Kristoffur 'Messi' á Nesi came close to putting the visiting team one up 27 minutes into the match, following a solo raid down the middle, but Alidad Danaei Fard managed to tip the ball to a corner. After 28 minutes, the defensive line of Cobras created a counterattack through the middle that gave Jakub 'Grizzly' Głuszak a good look at the goal, but his shot glanced harmlessly off the crossbar. Saxons's Tomasz 'The Cat' Głaszczka left the field after 34 minutes because of a nasty blow to the shin. His replacement was Jóannes 'Crazy Foot' í Korndali. Down the middle came Jesse 'Punisher' Tarvainen, making a fantastic play that nearly had Saxons take the lead after 35 minutes, but Alidad Danaei Fard preserved the tie. 40 minutes of the match played, and a comedy of errors by the home side gave the visitors a chance at the lead, but Jovan 'Stonehead' Bjegović, after finding himself dashing down on goal from the left with only the keeper to beat, sliced his shot horribly wide. 0 - 0 was the score after the first half. Saxons had most of the ball, with 71 percent of possession.

With 51 minutes played, Saša Pantić of Cobras fell dramatically just outside the penalty area. However, the referee was unimpressed, and booked him for diving. Some quick footwork on the left side of the field 55 minutes into the match left Saxons's Kristoffur 'Messi' á Nesi completely free to score. 0 - 1 for the visitors. Gordon 'The Berlin Wall' Bareyre fired a shot from distance after 67 minutes, but the long shot couldn't find the net for Saxons. Cobras almost scored after a counterattack 71 minutes into the match, but Kostya Sherman took a shot from the left that landed harmlessly in the side of the net. Cobras's defence sent a ball soaring up the middle on a beautiful counterattack with 73 minutes gone, but Erich Ash's finish was met by the reaching hands of the keeper. Jovan 'Stonehead' Bjegović was, after 78 minutes, almost able to extend the visitors' lead with a well placed diving header after the ball had looped into the centre, but the home side's keeper Alidad Danaei Fard made the save. Possession in this half belonged to Saxons, who controlled the ball 69 percent of the time.

Most important Cobras player was Ova Sadler. However, Jamir Nazaré made a disastrous appearance. The most dominating Saxons player was without a doubt Jovan 'Stonehead' Bjegović. Jóannes 'Crazy Foot' í Korndali was a disappointment, however. The match ends 0 - 1.
