The early stages of the match were a testing-out process. The two sides had never met before and this was also the first time WestSound had played a league match on natural grass. It was 0-0 until a quick two-goal burst by the Hoppers in the 23rd and 25th minutes.

Freddie Sanchez exploded through the WestSound defense and slotted home from just inside the penalty area to stake YUFC to a 1-0 lead in the 23rd minute.

In the 25th minute league leading scorer Hector Valdovinos mopped up at the far post for a goal from Memo Silva’s deflected shot.

It was 2-0 at the break but there were still five more goals to be scored.
