A late room change suited the yellow-red home team better. Moreover, Amo Handboll’s cup campaign got off to a slow start with a 34-36 loss to Tyresö Handboll. HK Torslanda edged out Anderstorps SK in Saturday’s tightest fight.
When the external conditions, with a change of venue in the region and a half-hour delay, were overcome, Tyresö pulled off a 3-0 shootout. During the effective hour of play, the first revelation was that the future league team took 56 minutes to equalize at 33-33.
Even more surprisingly, the winners of the match were Alexander Binderis and Ludvig Nyström, the latter managing the situation at 36-34 after a timeout. Amo had Vasko Sevaljevic top of the scoreboard (six goals) but therefore started with a zero in the points column.
In the same group, IFK Skövde managed to catch up and overtake a struggling Uppsala HK. All six of Uppsala’s goals were swallowed up when Linus Gustavsson scored 12-12 in the 18th minute of the match.
The home team, with Zeb Bjerneld and Gustav Nygren as six-goal shooters, led at halftime at 19-18. Skövde took over with Viktor Hallén (eight goals) in the lead and won after the break with 31-38 in the end.
Hammarby IF’s energy after news of Josef Pujol’s signing showed in part in 45-19 against Division 1 side Bodens BK. However, the tension between Torslanda and Anderstorp remained until the final whistle and 26-25 for the home team. Torslanda failed to put the game together with a four-goal lead but still got the last laugh with a Gunnar Bodin penalty.
