Sources: KDFF, K/G; see the goals (from far away but it is set to thumpy music) at the KDFF website.

The first half was dominated by K/G, which took more than twice as many shots on goal and was leading 3-1 at the half. The second half was a more back-and-forth affair from the start, and KDFF's goal in the opened the play up even more. K/G backup keeper Susanne Nilsson (replacing starting keeper Hedvig Lindahl, still serving a suspension from last week's red card) was forced to make several good saves, but it was K/G's Sara Lindén who put the home team more securely in the lead. Sounds to me, from the tone of the report, that K/G is quite relieved to have a victory... which is fair enough, but pre-season favorites aren't usually so scared by a pre-season relegation contender.
