Swedish Cup quarter finals: Linköping's revenge
Jitex BK - Kopparbergs/Göteborg FC 1 - 4 (0-3)

Lotta Schelin continues to impress and made a hat trick in only 22 minutes to seal the victory already in the first half. Even if Jitex got an early second half goal, they never managed to threaten Göteborg.

Linköpings FC - Djurgården/Älvsjö 3 - 1 (2-0)
Goals: 1-0 Maria Aronsson (11), 2-0 Josefine Öqvist (30), 3-0 Tiffeny Milbrett (57), 3-1 Sofia Simonsson (90)
In only a few days Linköping managed to change the picture completely. They had made big changes in their set-up for the Wednesday night Swedish Cup match; Rantanen as right back, Östberg and Milbrett in midfield and, after a surprisingly fast recovery, Hedvig Lindahl back in goal. She had been told by her doctor that there was a 80-20 chance that her groin would be ok, and she decided to play.
Linköping seemed set to show that they are better than they showed in their 6-2 loss last weekend and started with speed and determination and pretty soon had a firm grip on the match. Djurgården on the other hand seemed taken by Linköping's transformation and had one of those it's-really-hard-to-tell-if -they-care-at-all performances.

Umeå IK - Sunnanå SK 3 - 0 (1-0)
Goals: 1-0 Lise Kleveness (35), 2-0 Lise Klaveness (75), 3-0 Malin Moström (88 PK)
Umeå players were less than happy with Sunnanå, that showed up without 6 of their usual starters. "This is a competition match, they shopuld use their best team", said Umeå's Klaveness, "This is like they're not even trying to win". Umeå very rarely let Sunnanå borrow the ball, but once again this season showed their problems scoring against teams using deep defense.

Hammarby IF - KIF Örebro 1 - 2 (1-0)
Goals: 1-0 Sara Johansson (6), 1-1 Louise Östman (69), 1-2 Pavlina Scasna (82)
Örebro's coach Pia Sundhage decided to go with an offensive 4-3-3 at Hammarby, but the team ran into trouble almost alreday from start, when Sara Johansson put Hammarby ahead. Örebro had problems getting their play together until they some time into second half subbed in Lena Andersson in midfield and their passes started reaching the targets. Östman equalised and Scasna, who has became almost invaluable for Örebro, once again scored a winner.
