Kif Örebro seemed to have recovered nicely from the pounding they recieved at Malmö a week ago. They were much tighter in defense and midfield, without really making any changes. Sara Linder in defense had been commissioned to shut out Göteborg's dangerous Lotta Schelin, who was not her usual self, still somewhat jet-lagged from her China trip last weekend. Örebro had the upper hand over a slow and uncreative Göteborg (injured Stensland visibly missing) most of the match, but didn't score until substitute forward Emelia Erixon came on with 25 minutes left. She ran through Göteborg's defense and scored three times in less than 15 minutes. She recieved good balls from Scasna and Näfver and was fast and accomplished enough to beat her defenders.
