Weather conditions were fairly good for soccer, and Waldkampfbahn saw a turnout of 8965. Xaver Seybold was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Teddy Williams and Darrius Davies. Cry "havoc" and let loose the dogs of war! Hövelhof will go to battle in a 4-4-2 formation. The following players had been selected: Reusken - Huby, Rothenburgsort, Seidner, Müller - Kalkbrenner, Stensson, Heyngenstaedt, Gulbrandsen - Fährberg, Hingst.

The head coach flashed hand signals from the sideline and Capitals formed up in a 3-5-2 combination. Let's hope the opposing sideline wasn't filming that. They fielded: Blomeyer - Krueger, Voss, Penner - Haase, Ökte, Linnemann, Terhaag, Nieder - Sikora, Elbert.

Hövelhof saw most attack opportunities on the wings by using their disastrous ability to push the attack in the right direction. After 1 minutes, Capitals's Torsten Haase made his way through the middle and nonchalantly placed the ball out of the keeper's reach, putting the visitors up 0 - 1. Bodo Penner of Capitals received a yellow card after 4 minutes for unsportsmanlike behavior. Almost all the way down at the corner flag, Capitals's Markus Nieder somehow managed to get a perfect pass into the middle, impossible to miss for Lenhard Elbert, who scored for 0 - 2. With 34 minutes played, Lenhard Elbert nearly put the visitors up by one more as he broke through in the middle and fired from just outside the box, but his shot whizzed just over the bar. Svein Gulbrandsen of Hövelhof received a yellow card after 38 minutes for unsportsmanlike behavior. With 39 minutes played, Capitals put themselves up 0 - 3 after an attack from the right, caused by a defensive blunder. The scorer was Erkan Ökte. At this point, it was obvious that the players of Capitals lowered the tempo and became more defensively oriented. Tim Ole Krueger of Capitals received a yellow card after 41 minutes for unsportsmanlike behavior. The teams went for the halftime break at 0 - 3. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that Capitals had 75...75 percent possession. AH AH AH!

Maybe it was because of his team's lead, or maybe it was due to the ease with which he broke down the left, but Bodo Penner was a bit too sure of his talents, so instead of taking the easy tap-in goal after 47 minutes, he went for the backheel, which he put woefully wide. 66 minutes into the game, Bodo Penner had to leave the field due to a knee injury. In came Kurt Happel. A surprising free kick routine after 75 minutes nearly resulted in another goal for the visitors, but the strikers were too eager and were caught offside. After the ball was lifted in from the left, James Sikora was on his own in the home side's penalty area and should have scored after 76 minutes, but missed, probably due to lack of concentration. After 77 minutes of play, Capitals's Kurt Happel unexpectedly kicked the ball with reverse spin, and from no angle at all it ended up at the feet of Torsten Haase who had an easy tap-in for 0 - 4. Capitals's James Sikora made it through the home team's defense on the right hand side 79 minutes into the match. After rounding the keeper, he only had to place the ball in the unguarded net when a defender slid in and cleared the ball off the line. The referee showed Hövelhof's Clem Huby the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. After 84 minutes of game time, Lenhard Elbert had an excellent opportunity to add to the visitors' lead, hitting a cross from the right with a half volley, but Knut Reusken was in the right place and tipped the ball to a corner. After several obvious shirt pulling incidents, Hövelhof's Bastian Seidner got himself booked. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that Capitals had 73...73 percent possession. AH AH AH!

The most outstanding Hövelhof player was without a doubt Bastian Seidner. Good thing Clem Huby isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance. Capitals's best player was Erkan Ökte. Good thing Markus Nieder isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance. The match ends 0 - 4.
