Dutchman Kayleigh Hamers became the big match hero for SDE when she decided with just over 40 seconds left of the extension. Before that, she made sure to play the landlady, Julie Zwarthoed, who acknowledged to 3-3 at the end of the regular match time.
SDE took time out and picked out goalkeeper Lindsey Post with 1.37 left to play. That made the team take advantage and Hamer's pass over the central line laid the groundwork for Zwarthoed to acknowledge. The victory in the extension means that the team is consolidating their sixth place and is currently on the verge of reaching the playoffs for the first time in the club's history.
But it was Brynäs who opened the strongest. Lara Stalder scored two goals in the first period, which Brynäs won 3-1. Stalder has now scored 23 goals in the SDHL and has 14 hits in the last seven matches.
