Jonas Birgén pushing towards goal

Match Report Rd 2

The focus before Saturday’s top of the table clash was on building team spirit, and wow did the Swans come out firing! It took Bromma some time to find an answer to the onslaught of passion and goals as the Swans came out dominating. With the return of club legend Hammar it was a special day for Årsta along with 4 debut players, it seemed that we were unstoppable, but Bromma slowly found the answers to calm the storm and went into the first break with Årsta just a couple of goals in the lead.

A tough second quarter saw scores fairly close at half time Bromma going into the third with a small advantage. The third and arguably one of the most heated quarters seen in Saff footy in a couple of years saw the vikings linking well and showing that they are a threat this year, but to Årsta’s credit they pulled back the vikings domination and kicked 3 quick goals in succession towards the end of the break.

The final term was just too much for Swans to hold on to and Bromma with an absolute onslaught of missed goals not seen since the 2009 grand final, mostly due to the unrelenting pressure of the boys in Red and White saw the Vikings kick 12-21-93 to the Swans very accurate 11-4-70.

Pete L kicking 2 goals in his debut match and Oskar booting one, Tommi and Jon both with solid performances made the coaches player a tough one to decide, especially after Jonas showed some amazing talent to get his second goal of the season, and probably the best so far this year if not the best I have seen in Stockholm footy. The legend himself The Mighty Hammar after a slow start in the first half found some form and composure to go on and show he can play both forward and back grabbed the coach’s attention and went on to win the award.
