Falun won their first home game of the season. After the overtime loss in last round’s heated duel against Storvreta, the runner-ups of last season were victorious with 8-5.
Mullsjö was not messing around with Sirius last round and showed the Uppsala based team all corners of the floorball field. This round the team had to meet Falun away and in the first period, we saw a completely different team than in the previous match. After 10 minutes the team already looked at a 0-3 gap and had to request a time-out. With a 4-0 lead for Falun, the home team seemed to be completely in control and cruising towards an easy victory.

Jan Zaugg opened the score in the second period but two goals by Alexander Galante Carlström, who woke up after a relatively silent first period in which Falun’s new generation did most of the hard work (2 goals by Malte Lundmark), which set the score to 6-1. The game looked over but a miraculous comeback ensued at the latter half of the second period after another goal of Zaugg which was followed by goals from Rikard Eriksson, Jesper Ekström, and Pelle Tarenius.
With a 6-5 lead for Falun at the start of the final period, the game stabilized as both teams started playing more carefully. The Hawaii style floorball in which the ball swung back and forth, which characterized the game in the previous period, made room for a Swedish Cold War in which neither team wanted to give their opponent much space. For the first 18 minutes of the period, no goals fell but as Mullsjö was forced to take more risks, it gave more chances for Falun. It was Alexander Galante Carlström to score the liberating 7-5 goal. His fourth goal of the night was the final nail in the coffin for Mullsjö.
