The game started at a fast and furious pace, in the first minute a Sam Coulson shot was well saved by Woods in the Sussex goal, only for Sussex to go straight at the other end and Dean did well to save a Waller shot. Dean was then called into action six minutes later when he had to turn a 20 yard strike from Beard around the Cambridgeshire upright. In the 11th minute a 20 yard strike from Cambridgeshire captain Charlie Woolfe was turned past the post by Woods in the Sussex goal. Sussex then started to take a foothold on the game but they were coming up against Dean in the Cambridgeshire goal and he did well to save efforts from Caplin and Waller. Cambridgeshire did have the ball in the net after 31 minutes through Charlie Woolf but the whistle had long gone for offside. The deadlock was broken in the when Matt Hards drilled a free kick from just outside the penalty area and into the bottom corned of the Cambridgeshire net; it was no more than the hosts deserved.
