The visitors from Welkenraedt seem to have a very decent team for this season. They got a very quick start and were 0-2 up after just 20 minutes. Only 5 minutes later the home team equalised in 2 minutes, 2-2 with 25 minutes on the clock. Within the opening 30 minutes, RFC Welkenraedt even scored the 2-3 from a free kick.
After the break the visitors even made it 2-4, with Houtain-Milanello pulling another goal back, 3-4. But with 20 more minutes to go Welkenraedt made it 3-5, straight from the kick off... In the last minutes of the game the hosts got another goal, setting the score at 4-5.
9 goals and a very entertaining afternoon, having visited a rather good ground.
