A high paced game, as usual when playing good boy's teams, that provided a good test for Linköping. Coach Per-Johan Karlsson commented that the first half was then team's best so far this year.

Umeå - Kopparbergs/Göteborg FC 2-0 (0-0)
Umeå: Sofia Lundgren (46 Johanna Baecklund)- Maria Bergkvist (46 Emma Berglund), Sanna Valkonen, Karolina Westberg, Anna Paulson - Marta, Malin Moström, Lisa Dahlqvist (46 Elaine), Anna Sjöström - Johanna Andersson (46 Erika Karlsson), Lise Klaveness

Goals: 1-0 Marta (80), 2-0 Lise Klaveness (85)
Umeå tried an unusual 4-4-2 formation, maybe caused by the absence of Hanna Ljungberg, and let everyone that was fit to play get at least half a match. They mostly kept Göteborg away from any dangerous situations, but didn't manage to score until late in the game.

Malmö FF - Kristianstad/Wä 5-0 (2-0)

Goals: 1-0 Therese Lundin (28), 2-0 Emma Wilhelmsson (37), 3-0 Lina Nilsson (55), 4-0 Nilla Fischer (70), 5-0 Frida Nordin (80)
Malmö continues to experiment with their starting line-up, appearently trying to find out where all the new youngsters do best. In pouring rain on an artificial turf field outside town, they had no problems with Kristianstad/Wä, a 1st division team. Good attacking combinations and a lot of runs down the wings pleased coach Petersson.

Senini Bardolini - Djurgården/Älvsjö 2-4 (1-4)
Djurgården/Älvsjö, on camp in Italy, played last years Italian champions Senini Bardolini, presently on 2nd place in the league. Djurgården/Älvsjö dominated the first half with two goals each from Laura Kalmari and Elin Ekblom, but the tough training schedule showed in the second half. Djurgården/Älvsjö slog italienskt topplag

Antalaya P17 (boys) - Umeå IK 3-5 (0-4)
Umeå: Sofia Lundgren - Anna Paulson (Johanna Frisk 55), Karolina Westberg (Emma Berglund 62), Sanna Valkonen, Maria Bergkvist - Malin Moström (Erika Karlsson 62), Lisa Dahlkvist, Elaine - Anna Sjöström, Lise Klaveness, Marta (Johanna Andersson 45)
Goalscorers: Anna Sjöström 3, Lise Klaveness, Sanna Valkonen
Umeå, back to their usual 4-3-3, played a local boy's team. Good movement forward helped them overcome the stronger and faster boys. Minor injuries kept Anne Mäkinen and June Pedersen from the pitch, otherwise everyone got their minutes. Some of the substitutions might have contributed to a somewhat less successfull second half, but the team also lost focus a bit when they were 5-0 up.
