Linköping – Falun 3-5 [highlights]
Falun showed domination versus losing finalists Linköping. After just 59 seconds of play Falun opened the score which was doubled at 9.49 when Galante Carlström found the net in a powerplay situation. Just 15 seconds later the lead was already 3-0 through a volley by Simon Cederström. Linköping’s answer came in another powerplay – this time for the home team. The second period started with a fast shot from – who else – Alexander Galante Carlström near the end of a Falun powerplay. Now the score was 1-4 and that even became 1-5 when Falun scored a shorthanded goal after an incredible action by Rasmus Enström assisting Johannes Larsson. Even though less than half of the match was played, the gap proved already too big for the home team as they struggled to cope with the Falun offense. Despite a 2-5 in the second period and a powerplay goal in the last, the team from Linköping couldn’t get a grip on the game. Falun was stronger tonight.

Mullsjö AIS – IBK Dalen 5-6 [highlights]
What else could be expected than a tight game. Dalen quickly opened the score and gained a lead of 3 points thanks to two very effective free balls and a skilled backhand volley. In a quick counter by team captain Gillek the farmers from Mulljsö lessened the goal gap. In the second period Dalen scored the 1-4 in a powerplay situation but was soon turned into 2-4 by Norwegian defender Gidske. David Gillek proved to be in form after he dragged a ball in yet another powerplay making the score 3-4 just before the end of the 2nd period. Dalen’s free balls were very efficient. After scoring 2 goals in the first period, the 3-5 came also from a free ball situation by the stick of Albin Andersson. After 9 minutes in the third period the 3-6 came when Jonas Svahn calmly finished a 1 vs 0 situation. A sloppy mistake by Dalen gave hope just 20 seconds later when it was capitalized on by the Mullsjö forwards. Mullsjö came to score yet again by David Gillek, but despite the great efforts of the team captain, he had to see his team lose with 5-6.
