In then first match after the long break for the Olympic games, Bälinge hosted AIK. Bälinge, desperately trying to avoid relegation and still hunting their first league win, could have wished for a better opening. Only ten minutes into the game, former Bälinge player Linda Sembrant picked up a loose ball after a corner-kick and chipped Veronica Svensson in Bälinge's goal. It was soon followed by another AIK goal, a nice copperation between Lisa De Vanna and Emma Lundh. "After that we became a bit too content", commented AIK's head coach Benny Persson, trying to explain 80 goalless minutes in spite of a big dominance in the play. Lisa De Vanna scored the third at overtime, when she simply out-ran Bälinge's defense.
Bälinge's newest signing, Temryss Lane, couldn't start as she has suffered a light strain in training.
