Monday evening lag lila traveled to Askim for what we anticipated would be a tough match and it certainly didn't disappoint in that respect.
The pitch on Askim is much larger than we are used to playing on, but the team seemed to settle quickly into the game and were 2-0 up after 10 minutes thanks to two very well taken goals by Eva from Klara W's through passes.
As expected Askim came back into the match and before long they had equalized through constant pressure on our back line that we weren't able to deal with effectively. The game was finely balanced for large parts of the game with both teams effectively cancelling each other out.
Eventually we were able to break through Askim's strong defense with some nice combination play in Askim's penalty area from Alice R and Maya who finished from close range. The favor was returned in the last period when Alice was able to fire high past their goalkeeper.
At 4-2 we should have been able to see the game out, however, credit goes to Askim who kept pressing and were awarded a free kick which they converted and minutes later they got their deserved equalizer with a shot from outside the area. Although the girls were slightly down at the end of the game, they performed very well under difficult circumstances and can take a lot from a match such as this going into our next game against Jitex Mölndal on Saturday. Special thanks goes to Alice H, Alice R, Eva and Anna from F08 who were able to join us at very late notice to enable us to get a team together and played very well.
