The start of this match found both teams moving the ball around well but with very few opportunities at either end. The deadlock was broken in 9 minutes when Marc Callaghan drove into the D from the left and put the ball past Fieldy in the Monarchs goal. After this there was another period where very few scoring opportunities were made. The game changed 15 minutes into the first half when Jimi Simpson was given a harsh green card for breaking down play . In the next two minutes Monarchs scored twice. Greg then received a similarly harsh green card for knocking the ball back to Monarchs. Monarchs came close to adding another during this period just before half time. Harris pushed forward in the second half looking for an equaliser and in the 11th minute Finlay Wright scored from a Chico assist. Two minutes later the roles were reversed when Chico put away an assist from Finlay. With two minutes left Monarchs took of their keeper and then won a short corner. The corner was saved but Monarchs were awarded another corner although the ball seemed to have been cleared. This time Alan Gouick found the roof of the net and shortly afterwards the final whistle went with the scores tied at 3-3.
