Match-Day 13: Sunday
Mallbackens IF - Hammarby IF 2-0 (1-0)
Mallbacken: Carola Söberg - Helena Nilsson, Louise Jonasson,Therese Stolpe, Kicki Ingvarsson - Linda Nöjd, Therese Persson, Erla Arnardóttir, Emma Asp (Birgitta Stiernberg) - Maja Johansson (Jenny Monsén), Lindsay Greco
Hammarby: Camilla Halonen - Maureen Metzger, Karolina Rinman, Annelie Norén, Josefine Christensen - Eleanor Lundgren (Lindsay Demaree), Marijke Callebaut (Tanja Meidal), Elin Härén, Louise Fors - Salina Olsson, Jessica Landström (Sofia Hoflin)
Goals: 1-0 Maja Johansson (5), 2-0 Lindsay Greco (48)
Mallbacken's third straight victory moves them out of the immideate relegation struggle. An injury-ridden Hammarby (Jennie Jonsson and Christina Forsell didn't show) couldn't keep up with Mallbacken, that seems to have improved their creativity in the attack since Lindsay Greco arrived.
Umeå IK - Kopparbergs/Göteborg FC 2-1 (1-1)
Umeå: Sofia Lundgren - Maria Bergkvist, Anna Paulsson, Sanna Valkonen, Frida Östberg - Malin Moström, Anne Mäkinen, Elaine - Anna Sjöström, Hanna Ljungberg, Marta
Kopparbergs/Göteborg: Maria Edman - Marlene Sjöberg, Frida Höglund, Sofia Dammström (82 Jennie Svensson), Maria Karlsson - Lisa Ek (75 Sofia Palmqvist), Jessica Julin, Johanna Almgren, Lotta Schelin - Sara Lindén (75 Sofie Andersson), Heidi Kackur
Goals: 1-0 Marta (5), 1-1 Heidi Kackur (30), 2-1 Malin Moström (72)
After three scoreless league matches Kopparbergs/Göteborg maganed to find the goal again and for quite some time looked like they might even upset Umeå. Marta scored the first very early in the match from a corner-kick by Anne Mäkinen but the expected blow-out - it usually what happens when Umeå starts scoring early - didn't take place. Göteborg got their game working and Kackur's equalizer was no fluke. But Umeå created several scoring opportunities and Malin Moström's 2-1 goal gave a narrow but clear victory.
