Kalmarsund has won its second game this season. Despite Växjö’s strong start, the visitors took the points: 4-6.
When checking out the match statistics, one could say Växjö was highly effective in the first period. The team took four shots on target and scored three times. Goalkeeper Erik Svensson managed to save all seven shots he saw coming. In the second period, Kalmarsund fought its way back into the game, winning this period with the same numbers as Växjö did in the first part, thus equalizing the score: 3-3.
In the last period, Kim Nilsson finished his assist-hattrick when Marcus Johansson scored 3-4 in Kalmarsund’s favor. The team put pressure on Växjö and was rewarded when Kevin Haglund scored 3-5. Despite a time-out from Växjö, Kalmarsund kept momentum and even scored 3-6 through Johansson’s third goal (and Nilsson’s fourth assist). Only with two minutes left, the home team found the net again, but the audience didn’t get to see a second comeback.
Växjö now has three points out of two games, while Kalmarsund is the current runner-up of the SSL with six points in two games.
