Things for Själevad to be happy about, more than the point they managed to snatch from Kopparbergs/Göteborg, was Marina Aggio returning to the team and a, after two really shaky matches, yet again functioning defense. Which is more or less the same. The brasilian defender brings calmness and authority to the defense line, writes local columnist Pär Hägglund.

Kopparbergs/Göteborg were disappointed with yet another draw, the more since they had the upper hand and should have converted more of their opportunities.

A big relief seems to be the most common feeling with Umeå's players after the 1-0 win over Djurgården/Älvsjö. Hanna Ljungberg admits that they were very tense before the match, having lost 4 matches of 5 to Djurgården/Älvsjö last season, and it showed in the match where both sides played a restrained and defensive game. From Djurgården/Älvsjö the view is that a (goalless) draw would have been a result that better corresponded to the events on the field.

KIF Örebro was the better team, particularly in the midfield with Mary Frances Monroe and Marie Hammarström, and made good use of the set pieces. But Sunnanå is extremely dangerous up front and Tiffeny Milbrett is gold worth for the club.

Criminally boring! is the verdict from a local columnist after the QBIK-Mallbacken match. And the players admit it wasn't any great entertainment they gave. QBIK coach Dave Mosson once again wants to emphazise that the team needs strengthening. "I don't think the board realised how big the step is from 1st division to Damallsvenskan".
