Match-Day 10: Saturday

KIF Örebro - Djurgården/Älvsjö 0-2 (0-0)
Goals: 0-1 Linda Fagerström (47), 0-2 Sara Thunebro (74)
Attendance: 978
It took Djurgården/Älvsjö half the match go wear down the teenagers in KIF Örebro, and particulary their keeper Kristin Hammarström, but then they began to score on their chances. All in all Djurgården's best match for a long time. Sara Johansson was useful in a Victoria Svensson (still in rehab) position just behind the other two forwards. KIF Örebro's Pia Sundhage informed that there probably will not be any new americans during the fall season.

Great performance by Malmö's Nilla Fischer, who won almost everything in midfield and contributed to give her team a distinct advantage in the match. Sunnanå wasn't without chances, among them a shot in the crossbar by Anna Boman and a shot from distance by Bianca Rech that Malmö's keeper Caroline Jönsson just managed to tip over, but Malmö's win was never threatened. With better finishing, or a worse defence than Sunnanå's, the win had been larger. Sunnanå's strong centre defense (Hanna Marklund and Rebecka Smith) made Malmö mostly building their attacks on the right side (Malin Andersson and Formiga), which resulted in the first goal, a long pass from Malin Andersson where Nilla Fischer ran in behind Sunnanå's defenders. The second came from a nice passing sequence down the middle where Formiga's pass to Asthildur Helgadóttir opened up the defense. Sunnanå was missing their striker Madeleine Edlund (couldn't get the time off from work!) and their important midfielder Bianca Rech had to limp off the pitch after a collision. Didn't seem that serious though, she came back and played for a couple of minutes before she was subbed out.

Natioanl team coach Thomas Dennerby was present, "looking at players from both teams", but mentioned Nilla Fischer, Therese Lundin and Emma Stålhammar as interesting new players.Sunnanå's Bianca Rech commented that the high pace and the the physical play is the big difference from the Bundesliga.

Själevads IK - Linköping FC 1-1 (1-1)
Goals: 1-0 Josefine Öqvist (16), 1-1 Moa Ericsson (27)
Attendance: 425
Linköping had most of the match and pressured hard towards the end in the heavy rain trying to get a winning goal, but Magda Åstrand, subbing in after Anna Hofwing had to be carried out with a knee injury, did a great job in Själevads goal. Linköping's coach Mikael Bornehav said it was one iof his team's best performances this year, creating a lot of scoring chances, they just couldn't get it to work the whole way. Själevad's Yngve Persson was very pleased that the team was able to bounce back from the Wednesday 6-0 defeat.
