Pixbo was scheduled to meet Dalen away in SSL 16.00. But in the air they found out that the plane could not land at Bromma airport and they were redirected to Arlanda.
– We are sitting here and speculating, said the team’s head coach Thomas Andersson from Arlanda earlier in the afternoon.
– We are a bit adaptable and like to play now when we are still on the road. We have the Thorengruppen (in Umeå) in two weekends. We could play a doubles match if it does not happen now.
But the match ended in a draw – two hours late.
And despite the far from optimal conditions, Pixbo emerged victorious from the battle. Dalen led 3-1 early in the second period. But six unanswered goals by Pixbo ensured the match was reversed – and the guests eventually won 11-5.
