The following players had been chosen: Wolfenden - Nedwell, Kaplan - Lennon, Rutherford, Adams, Anderson, Woodland - Younger, Searle, Cleverley.

They were singing the praises of Martin Adams 5 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 Bessemer. Douglas 'The Elder' Younger could have put Bessemer up one more, but he fired into the side netting after breaking free on the left after 18 minutes. Bessemer solidified their lead at the 23 minute mark, as David Kaplan dribbled the ball through the opposing central defence and scored to make it 2 - 0. With 36 minutes played, Bessemer put themselves up 3 - 0 when the visiting defenders lost the ball to David Kaplan, who came up from the left and proceeded to coolly round the keeper and knock the ball home. By now, the players in Bessemer felt that victory was guaranteed and began to play it safe, focusing on defence and not risking too much going forward. Bessemer's Martin Adams's long shot really ought to have found the net 37 minutes into the match, but it fell just wide of the target. The crowd roared its approval when Evan Wolfenden somehow managed to block a shot which seemed to be a certain goal by iSoccer's Kristián Margecanský 40 minutes into the game, following a good move through the middle. It was 3 - 0 at the break. Possession in this half belonged to Bessemer, who controlled the ball 69 percent of the time.

As the game started to slip away for iSoccer, the manager decided to change the tactical approach. While defending the Bessemer lead, Jamie Woodland got a new role. 46 minutes in the game, his coach ordered him to change positions with Lee Nedwell. Quintin Lennon wanted to play on, but the Bessemer coach had other ideas, and he was replaced 46 minutes into the game by Phillip Cresswell. A well placed corner kick from Harri Ituarte was followed by Harris Schilderman's hard but accurate header. The well executed routine resulted in a goal for iSoccer, the score now 3 - 1. Things were going to get worse for the visitors. Phillip Cresswell squirmed through their central defence after 53 minutes, increasing the lead to 4 - 1. 68 minutes into the game, Douglas 'The Elder' Younger had to leave the pitch due to a knee injury. In came 王 (Wang) 隽超 (Junchao). Bessemer increased the lead as Brian Cleverley struck to make the score 5 - 1 after an attack from the left left him unmarked in front of the keeper. Cheers filled the stadium as Brian Cleverley broke through the visitors' central defence to put away the ball to increase the lead to 6 - 1 to Bessemer. After 75 minutes, iSoccer switched Krelis Van Vlem with Lino Lagioni, hoping for a quick impact on the pitch. The home side failed to add to their score as Martin Adams shot a penalty wide after 78 minutes. iSoccer needed a fresh pair of legs on the field, and after 84 minutes 潘 (Pan) 若弘 (Ruohong) made way for Elio 'Lion' Pinto. Bessemer had most of the ball, with 68 percent of possession.

The most dominating Bessemer player was without a doubt Martin Adams. However, David Kaplan made a disastrous appearance. iSoccer's top performer was clearly Lino Lagioni. On the other hand, Harris Schilderman's play was disheartening. The match ends 6 - 1.
