UEFA Women's Cup: Umeå wins group 2

Umeå IK defeated hosts Kolbotn 2-1 on Sunday afternoon. Umeå started with an early goal from Lise Klaveness in the 4th minute and dominated the play during the first half. In the second half Kolbotn came out better organised and managed to score an equaliser 7 minutes from end and pushed on for the goal that would give them the group win. But instead Umeå got the last minute goal from an Anne Mäkinen direct free-kick.

Umeå's group win puts them against group 3 runners-up, Dutch champions Saestum, in the quarterfinal. Even if Saestum isn't one of the well-known heavyweights of UEFA Women's Cup, they played a tie in their match against Turbine Potsdam and were only one goal away from winning the group.
