We shall now look back at how June, July and August 2018 went for the club.
June started with an away match against Karlslund which finished 1-1 which was an ok result but we have had better against them, this was followed with a match against Tegs SK at Tornvallen which resulted in a 2-0 victory with one of the goals being scored by Pontus Overgaard to send us up to 1st place in Superettan.
Unfortunately June would end with two disappointing results, these being a 2-1 loss away to Degerfors and a 3-3 draw at home to GIF Sundsvall, I knew we could beat both of these teams hence my disappointment. The scorers for us in the Sundsvall match were Ville Kolehmainen and Guri Baqaj.
To start July we had to host Landskrona BoIS in a match which unfortunately resulted in a 3-1 loss which was disappointing as I hoped for at least a draw with them, following this we were away to Vasalund which was a pleasing match resulting in a 2-0 victory, we then faced Halmstad and IFK Norrkoping at home resulting in a 1-1 draw with Halmstad and a 2-0 victory against IFK Norrkoping, the goals against Norrkoping being scored by Pontus Overgaard and Ville Kolehmainen.
Our last match of July was against Oster in an away game which unfortunately resulted in a loss by two goals to nil.
August would start with a tough match away to Syrianska, I was pleased with the team's performance in this match but we unfortunately lost 3-2, I felt we deserved at least a draw from this one, following this we hosted Skovde at Tornvallen which resulted in the most pleasing victory of the season so far as we defeated Skovde by three goals to one with the goals being scored by Guri Baqaj and Pontus Overgaard.
Then came a big disappointment as for the second season running we were knocked out of the Svenska Cupen in the 2nd round on penalties by a 3rd tier side, this time the opposition being Limhamn Bunkeflo who defeated us by four penalties to three.
A tough match followed as we hosted Hammarby Fotboll at Tornvallen, this was always going to be difficult but I was very pleased to come out of the game with a 2-2 draw after goals from Robert Widmark and Ville Kolehmainen, our last game of August was away to BK Forward who are not the easiest team to play but not the hardest either, we played well and won by three goals to two with Guri Baqaj and Dennis Malmqvist scoring the goals for us.
I leave you with some pictures until next time.
