Yesterday Eskilstuna came to Vilan for a visit. We drew last time we met. 0-0 on their turf. That time we struggled in the first half. This time we played on grass and we started much better.
We played very good in our attacks, a lot of runs were made and people put in hard work. Olivia Welin was maybe the best out there and scored our goal in the 17th minute, completely fair. She also had one more really good chance to get her and our second, but the keeper made a save. We had even more chances to score but one was what we managed to put behind Emelie Almesjö.
All of a sudden a counter attack led to Kim DeCesare being completely free with me. I saw what side she was going to place the ball and I made the save, or so I thought. Just before hitting my hands the ball bounced so only my left hand took the hit. Since it was hard enough the ball jumped over me and slowly found its way into my goal. Annoying!
In the second half the play was more even and Eskilstuna proved to be really dangerous. They had two goals in goal from beating our central defender in the near post zone, but both were called for offside.
We had a few chances as well but none of the teams managed to score their second. Only less than 500 people showed up to this game that was meant to help save the club from the alarming economic situation, but I am thankful for those that showed true support.
Next game with KDFF is away against Piteå on the 24th of August. Before that we take on Poland in a very important World Cup qualifier on the 21st of August.
