UEFA WOMEN’S CHAMPIONS LEAGUE NEWS:

Rosengård‘s second qualifying round first leg tie at home to TSG 1899 Hoffenheim ended in disappointment after a 3-0 loss. Belgian international Tine de Caigny opened the scoring for the German side just before the half hour mark. Laura Weinroither grabbed a second with 20 minutes to go and Chantel Hagel made it 3-0 in stoppage time.

There was better news for BK Häcken who returned from Oslo with a 3-1 win over Vålerenga. Filippa Angeldahl scored twice on her final appearance for the club ahead of her move to Manchester City and Stina Blackstenius made it 3-0 after 64 minutes. Rikke Madsen gave the Norwegians some hope for the second leg with a goal eight minutes from time.

DAMALLSVENSKAN:  

Djurgården, in their first game under their new coach Magnus Pålsson, earned a vital 1-0 win over Växjö thanks to a goal from Julia Walentowicz after just ten minutes to the delight of the crowd of 541.

BK Häcken gained a thumping 5-1 win over Hammarby. Hammarby took an early lead through Hanna Lundkvist after just three minutes. However, goals from Dilya Yr Zomers, Mille Gejl Jensen (2), and Filipa Curmark (2) saw the home side clinch the points in front of 895 fans. The margin of victory emphasises the gap between really is a big difference Häcken and Rosengård at the top and the rest of the league as Hammarby are one of the candidates battling it out to finish third.

Eskilstuna United earned a 3-0 win over struggling Piteå.  Mia Jalkerud, Paulina Nyström, Felicia Rogic Summer signing Jalkerud looks like exactly what Eskilstuna needed when they battled replace all the players that they lost in the transfer window. She scores, assists, and links up well with others. The vast majority of the 897 fans went home happy.

KIF Örebro ended their seven match run without a win after they earned a 2-1 win over visitors Linköping. Amanda Rantanen put the hosts ahead just after half-time before Emma Lennartsson levelled. Jessie Scarpa came on as a late sub for Örebro after 84 minutes and scored the winner two minutes into stoppage time which sent the 365 fans into raptures.

Umeå IK got back to winning ways at the top of the table in some style with a 7-2 thrashing of fourth placed IFK Kalmar on the road. Sarah Mellouk (2), Monica Jusu Bah (2), Lisa Bjork, Henna Riikka Honkanen and Alexandra Sandstrom were on target. Minnie Asperot got both of Kalmar’s efforts. Second placed IK Uppsala also earned a big win away from home with a 5-0 win at Borgeby FB. Marika Lundin, Moa Ohman, Angelina Thoreson, Ellen Toivio and Hanna Persson were on target. IF Brommapojkarna went third after a 2-1 win at Bollstanäs SK. Emma Lund gave the home side an early lead before two goals from Klara Andrup within six minutes of each other in the last quarter sealed Bromma’s win. Morön BK are fifth, but could have taken advantage of IFK Kalmar’s thrashing if they had gained more than just a point against mid table Mallbackens IF Sunne. They took the lead through Irvina Bajramovic but Hildah Magala’s strike three minutes from the end earned Mallbackens a draw.
