The rain was pouring down at the stadium today. While a boggy pitch like this was an advantage for physical players, it really didn't help those who relied on speed or technique. Lineup: MacIntyre - Castillo, Southworth, Tinsley, Dilworth - Felice, Benítez, Felton - Cordell, Stanley, Cuéllar.

The following players took the field: Martone - Simmons, Mackenzie, Boneccher - Gilbert, Bailey, Hedayati, Richards, Jolly - Jung, Fitzgibbon.

The teams had chosen different formations for the match. Home team arSALnalers went for 4-3-3 while Hawks F.C has decided to play a 3-5-2 lineup. Hawks tried to focus their attacks down the middle, taking advantage of their outstanding level with that tactic. After 4 minutes, arSALnalers attempted an attack but had to cede the ball in frustration. They could not find their way through the mighty Adel Hedayati, who acted as an effective roadblock on Hawks's defensive midfield. The referee showed Hawks's Wade Jung the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. Solomon Fitzgibbon of Hawks was able to make an impressive rush past the sluggish Jovito Castillo, which resulted in a goal making the score 0 - 1. There was a promising attack by arSALnalers after 28 minutes, but it was ultimately closed down by the powerful presence of Adel Hedayati. 36 minutes into the game, arSALnalers seemed a little tentative in their play as their organization fell to poor. Hawks's Larry Gilbert made it through the home team's defence on the right hand side 39 minutes into the match. After rounding the keeper, he only had to place the ball in the unguarded goal when a defender slid in and cleared the ball off the line. 0 - 1 was the score after the first half. Possession in the forty-five minutes was dominated by arSALnalers, with 55 percent of the ball.

The coach gave his players an extra tactical briefing during the break, and after that arSALnalers had passable organisation. Larry Gilbert really should have scored when he was chosen by fate to confront a wide open goal following a great play by Antonio Gerardo Boneccher after a corner. 79 minutes into the game, arSALnalers had difficulty finding their positions and their organisation dropped to inadequate. After 80 minutes, there was a bit of a mixup on the field as Hawks found themselves out of position and their organisation level dropped to passable. 87 minutes in, arSALnalers's Ernesto J. Benítez received a yellow card for going into a challenge studs first. Al Simmons was, after 88 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 Johnny MacIntyre made the save. 89 minutes into the game, Hawks seemed to suffer a certain amount of confusion and they fell to a inadequate level of organisation. 89 minutes in, arSALnalers appeared unsure on how to play and their organisation was only inadequate. It was announced by the referee that he estimated stoppage time to be around 1 minute. This meant there could still be an extra attack or two left in the match! The match ends 0 - 1. arSALnalers enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 52 percent of possession.

Most important arSALnalers player was Jaycob Felice. However, David Cuéllar made a disastrous appearance. Hawks's top performer was clearly Wade Jung. On the other hand, Scott Richards's play was disheartening.
