Tight defense from the home team made it hard for Umeå to get good scoring position. Of their about 25 shots at goal the vast majority was shot from safe outside the penalty area. In the beginning Sunnanå did surprisingly good contesting Umeå for posession of the midfield, but as the match went along Umeå dominated more and more and Madde Edlund and Tiffeny Milbrett became very lonely in the attack Hanna Marklund (player of the match) in Sunnanå's defense seemed untroubled by the injury she recieved in the Linköping match, but had to leave the pitch in the second half to avoid making the injury worse. Umeå was as a whole the much better side with a very offensive Moström and Marta, who was behind much of Umeå's attack but seldom came to any dangerous finishes.

AIK never dominated but seemed in control most of the time, while Mallbacken only had one real opportunity. Both teams seemed affected by the busy schedule recently with 3 matches in one week - AIK showing up with only one keeper (the backup keeper to that) and Mallbacken accordning to their coach "only doing 40 %".
