10 – Old but Gold: Can You Recognize the Players From This SSL Final?
Swedish SSL finals 12/13 between Falun and Dalen: It’s the oldest match of this list and the video quality may not be of current standards but don’t let this shy you away from watching this epic game. Falun was far from the powerhouse they are today with their youngest talents far from being in their prime. However, in the years prior, the team managed to compete in the SSL with increasing success, making it further into the playoffs as the seasons progressed. In the quarterfinals they dealt swiftly with Caperiotäby, a former powerhouse with their best days in rearview. However, the biggest surprise and shock followed in the semifinals where they beat Pixbo Wallenstam with 3-1 in games, by which they qualified themselves for their first-ever finals. Their opponents were NOT 3-times reigning champions Storvreta but the team that kicked them out. It was Dalen to appear in their second SSL finals in a row meeting an unlikely, but ever so hungry, Falun.
Bonus: for Ketil Kronberg fans, we found a 12-minute video of this match with only footage of his plays.
#9 – Champions Cup Whirlwind – Classic vs Wiler-Ersigen
Champions Cup 2020 semifinals between Classic and Wiler-Ersigen: most recent game in this list is one that I wrote an extensive guide about for our patrons. And definitely the game that stood out, before as well as afterward, was the Classic vs Wiler-Ersigen semifinals.
The reason for such a bold statement was that it had everything you can ask for in a game. Before the season Joonas Pylsy and Krister Savonen (#3 and #4 best players in the world respectively) changed Classic for Wiler-Ersigen which was exactly the match-up of the semifinals of the Champions Cup. It would be a solid premise for the typical Greek tragedy. Classic had been undefeated for the entirety of the season and were regarded as the favorites but make no mistake, Wiler-Ersigen was there to win it. How the game played out, you can watch for yourself:
