What in the first half was an even and exciting event became in the second half a yellow and black demonstration of power. IK Sävehof got everything right in their game and dominated the cup final against Höörs HK H 65.

In front of 1,080 spectators in Estrad Alingsås, the reigning cup champions Sävehof won 33–26 (16–14).

However, it was Höör who started the final the strongest. After winning the shoot-out round 3–1, they then took a 6–2 lead through striker Wilma Pettersson.

Sävehof quickly responded and five minutes later only one ball separated the teams. In the eleventh minute, Höör led 7–6.

Eight minutes later, Sävehof took the lead for the first time. In the 18th minute, Emma Mihailovic made it 10-11.

In Sävehof, it was above all Nina Koppang, Johanna Bundsen and the defensive aces Stina Wiksfors and Felicia Granat that stood out. In the second half, Sävehof only conceded ten goals.

In Höör, the aforementioned Pettersson played inspired. The five-goal scorer was also Scania’s top scorer.

This was Sävehof’s third final victory against Höör in a relatively short time. Last year they won against Höör in both the SM final and the cup final. This is Sävehof’s second cup title overall.
