Pangsenam decided to use a 4-4-2 set up. They fielded: Digger - bin Abdul Manap, bin Aziz, Özdemir, bin Dahlan - bin Zainal, bin Sheikh Ibrahim, Curran, Mohamad - bin Dewan, bin Saad.The wings were the focus of most of Pangsenam's attacks on this day.
Some quick footwork on the left side of the field in the 2:th minute left Pangsenam's Mohd Zan bin Dewan completely free to score. 0 - 1 for the visitors. The referee showed Pangsenam's Aizal bin Saad the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge.
In the 6:th minute, Ameet Pari went down in a suspected penalty situation after a challenge from the visitors' right guard, but the referee, having a good line of sight, signalled to keep playing. Nor Zeland bin Aziz showed why he is feared on the counterattack, scoring for Pangsenam in the 7:th minute to make the score 0 - 2.
Confident in their lead, Pangsenam decided to play a more defensive game at this point. Monsoon's Huie Ching-Chung got himself booked for a foul. Zabidi Mohamad increased the visitors' lead by putting a volley shot away on a pass from the right. 0 - 3.
22 minutes into the game, Pangsenam were awarded a penalty and Zabidi Mohamad was able to increase the visitors' lead to 0 - 4 rolling the ball in by the right post.

The score was then 0 - 5. Halftime score was 0 - 5. Pangsenam claimed to be the more dominant force in the game, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 60 percent.

In the 53:th minute, Pangsenam's Aizal bin Saad burst through the central defence and let loose a cannonball of a shot, scoring for 0 - 7.

he home side worked their way through the middle and almost got one back when Mohd Satar bin Abu Samah tried to sneak the ball past the keeper. Semi Digger was too alert for that!
