Within a 6-min period in the second period, Pixbo increased its lead from two to five when first Fritzell and then Adam Persson (twice) found the net. Helsingborg took a time-out right away, which helped to get the defense back up and disallowing Pixbo to score any more goals – yet.
The final period started off with Helsingborg scoring the important 3-7, by Jonathan Skoglösa. Could the team make this one a tense match again? Well, no. What surely didn’t make it easier: the team missed two penalty shots, one in the second period and one in the third, when the score was 3-7. The final part of the game became a goal frenzy in which both teams scored a few more, which led to the final score of 5-11.
Mark Benes (1+4) and Martin Östholm (3+0) gained most points this match. With six points out of two games, Pixbo is on top of the SSL. Helsingborg, having lost its first game against Kalmarsund already, finds itself back at the bottom of the charts. Their next games will be against Höllviken (Helsingborg) and Kalmarsund.
