Match-Day 13: Saturday
AIK - QBIK 1-0 (1-0)
AIK: Sofie Holmqvist - Emilia Reimer, Sara Andersson, Hanna Jöhnk, Anna-Karin Andersson - Anna Bergendal, Hodan Siid-Ahmed, Lina Hedkvist - Anna Lundin (62 Josefin Wejner), Lena Persson, Nazanin Vaseghpanah (80 Elin Hammarman)
QBIK: Maria Busk - Annica Svensson, Therese Lückner, Kathlene Fernström, Marie-Louse Skålberg (74 Charlotte Nygren) - Rebecca Jonsson, Linda Hallstensson (83 Elin Sandgren), Jenny Hallstensson - Anna Nilsson, Lisa Mellberg (83 Anne Hawkins), Jennifer Meier
Goals: 1-0 Anna Lundin (15)
Anna Lundin scored on a spectacular header from a corner-kick by Hodan Siid-Ahmed, one of the few really dangerous scoring opportunities in a match that was characterized by long balls and failed attacks. The result still put some more distance between AIK and the relegation line.
Djurgården/Älvsjö - KIF Örebro 3-0 (2-0)
Goals: 1-0 Sara Thunebro (19), 2-0 Kicki Bengtsson (38 PK), 3-0 Sara Johansson (53)
In thunder and rain and in front of the smallest Damallsvenskan crowd this season Djurgården still had a good match and their attack, with the two Saras Thunebro and Johansson setting up each other, seems to work again. Örebro, that had to start without their major attacking force Lisa Dahlkvist (suspended after three accumulated yellow cards), got Emma Hebring shown off the field after bringing down a free Victoria Svensson and had to play with only 10 for almost 60 minutes.
Nerikes Allehanda: KIF föll 0-3 mot svenska mästarna
Linköpings FC - Själevads IK 1-0 (0-0)
Linköping: Hedvig Lindahl - Sara Larsson, Charlotte Rohlin, Jenny Möller, Malin Gustafsson (72 Emma Claeson) - Ann Westermark (53 Caroline Seger), Anna-Kaisa Rantanen, Lotta Runesson (80 Karolina Kristenson), Maria Karlsson - Maria Aronsson, Josefine Öqvist
Goals: 1-0 Sara Larsson (74)
Själevad played their usual tight defense, clearly aiming on getting one point from the game, and managed to keep Linköping's potentially fast and dangerous attack harmless most of the match. Sara Larsson finally scored the winner by heading in the ball from a corner-kick.
Sunnanå SK - Malmö FF 2-3 (0-3)
Sunnanå: Åsa Berglund - Sandra Berggren, Hanna Marklund, Rebecca Smith, Maggie Esseryd - Bianca Rech, Carina Holmberg, Carolina Marklund, Mirjam Marklund (76 Lina Johansson)- Madelaine Edlund, Tiffeny Milbrett (83 Anna Boman).
Malmö: Caroline Jönsson - Malin Andersson, Denise Reddy, Therese Jönsson, Jenny Engwall - Formiga, Nilla Fischer, Therese Sjögran, Frida Nordin (Emma Stålhammar) - Asthildur Helgadottir (Mia Westerblad), Therese Lundin (Linda Blom)
Goals: 0-1 Asthildur Helgadottir (7), 0-2 Therese Lundin (21), 0-3 Therese Sjögran, 1-3 Carina Holmberg (65), 2-3 Lina Johansson (80)
Malmö impressed in the first half with great midfield play and Therese Sjögran both setting up and scoring goals. But Sunnanå is a tenacious team that doesn't give up easily. They scored two goals in the second half from free-kicks and Bianca Rech, their best player in the match, had a couple of close chances to equalize. Tiffeny Milbrett was clearly affected by her transatlantic travel, she arrived only yesterday, and didn't pose the kind of threat that Malmö was anticipating but still assisted one of Sunnanå's goals.
