The second tournament day was filled with goals. In three games, a total of 11 goals were scored. In the opening match of the day, OTP won OPS A-youth team 3-0. In the second game, AC Oulu won the triller against RoPS 3-2 and in the final match of the day JS Hercules and Bodens BK drew 3-3.
OTP team was a final minute replacement for OLS/Tervarit team, who couldn't get their act together for the tournament. But on the pitch OTP showed they should have been invited to the tournament in the first place. OPS-A youths were outpowered by physical OTP players. OTP took their scoring oppurtunies whereas OPS-A didn't. And the first goal of the match was a real beauty: a fabulous strike from 20 meters. OTP keeper was selected as the man-of-the-match for keeping a clean sheet with a few excellent saves.
The first clash of the season between fierce rivals AC Oulu and RoPS was an entertaining one. Goals were scored evenly one by one until the scoreline was 2-2. The fine effort by Lassi Hurmos setting up Joni Mäkelä to snatch the winner proved to be enough for AC Oulu this time. But RoPS showed some class on the pitch and will surely be a tough bone to break for most of the opponents during upcoming season. The new RoPS signing Emenike Mbachu is a good addition to the RoPS lineup, being the most dangerous RoPS player througout the match. AC Oulu's wonderkid Matias Ojala was selected as MoM for his setting up at least two of the AC Oulu's goals in the match.
In the final match of the day, JS Hercules played its' first ever "international" match against Bodens BK. The Swedish side started the match with a higher tempo than JS Hercules players have been used to. BBK pushed up and made the playmaking very tough for the hosts. But Hercules defensive line stood solid. BBK had all the changes in the first 30 minutes, but ackwardly enough, it was Hercules to score first. JS Hercules debytant Arttu Hallikainen scored the first one and Ville Vesanen ended his stunning 70 metres run with his trade-mark shot. BBK came back to the game with the help of Hercules defence, but quickly Arttu Hallikainen extended the lead to 3-1 with his 2nd of the game. At he end the pressure was too much for Hercules as Ryan Gracia and Johan Nyberg made it 3-3. Hercules goalie Jarmo Kolivuori kept the scoreline in those numbers with several parade saves. MoM awards were scooped up by BBK's Ryan Gracia for his talent in the midfield, controlling his team's efforts, and also to Hercules' Arttu Hallikainen for his two goals, especially for the first being JS Hercules' first ever goal against abroad team.
