Last season, falun's ladies lost a 2-0 lead in matches in the quarterfinal series against Endre.
This season, history looked set to repeat itself.
After swamping two match balls, the series against Täby went to a fifth and decisive match. There, the visitors kick-started and went into a 2-0 lead after the first period after Moa Delshammar gave the team the lead and passed for another.
But Falun rose in the second period and turned 0-2 to 4-2.
"We totally lose it and let them into the game. It's not good at all. We stand on our heels and watch as they do a little as they please, Täby's Lisa Carlsson told Expressen after two periods.
Pitted against the champion team in the semis
The national team's Moa Gustafsson – Falun's top scorer in the regular season with an average of over two points per game – was listed for three goals and perhaps should have had another in the statistics, but 4-2 bounced via an opponent and into the goal and was adjudged an own goal.
After putting the key 3-2 in the middle period, Gustafsson then punctuated the game 5-2 and 6-2 (in the empty bag) in the final act. The final score was 7-2.
–God. Damn nice that we win with some balls, it's very strong. Fun for the crowd and the club. We are on our way, says Moa Gustafsson to Expressen after Falun's first semi-final place on the women's side in 13 years.
For Falun, the defending champion Thorengruppen now awaits in the semi-final game that begins in Umeå on Friday. Pixbo and Rönnby compete for the second place in the final.
"We've played well against them this year and can definitely threaten them. They have to suit themselves," gustafsson says.
