New coach. The same feat as last year with points at home against the highest ranked champion team. VästeråsIrsta went for a walk against IK Sävehof and grabbed a stick when Tilde Skoog scored a penalty with the clock ticking.
VI and Fredrik Söderberg were unhappy after the first goal against Skara HF, while Sävehof got a full pot against HK Aranäs. At the same time, the match is not settled with any team and the big favorite begins the Champions League travel program.
The home team also took the opportunity to put pressure on Sävehof in two equal halves.
The poor start from last time was certainly repeated when the visitors scored four consecutive goals at 1-4.
Amanda Sjöstrand Hallman, who was also a great asset for VI later in the match, sent in the equalizer at 7-7.
Olivia Mellegård’s advantage positions were one of Sävehof’s main weapons until the break. In the final minutes, we had to react and eclipse the leading team with 12-11 in the score.
Sävehof made a few short, choppy attempts and reached the score at 20-23 with ten minutes to go. Then, Sjöstrand Hallman scored another nice shot with several balls for VästeråsIrsta.
Ellen Göthlin equalized in the 59th minute of the match and the team’s last attack would decide.
VI and Sävehof awarded penalties and found the net, Mellegård for Sävehof and Skoog who earned a draw.
VästeråsIrsta-IK Sävehof 28-28 (12-11)
