Guam's team, expecting a high intensity of play from the opening whistle, matched the visiting team shot-for-shot in the first ten minutes of play. Adjusting to the Guam selection's physicality, Nihon University caught a break in the 12th minute, when midfielder Ryosuke Saito sent a through ball to teammate Yoshitaka Shimizu, muscling his way to the goal for the finish.

The Guam selection scored its lone goal of the match in the 55th minute on a penalty kick by captain Jason Cunliffe.
