Nick Noble was scored on a season high three times as Ljungskile suffered an upset at the hands of Väsby United on Wednesday evening at Vilundavallen Stadium in Upplands Väsby.
Noble started at goalkeeper for Ljungskile while his newly acquired compatriot Michael Thomas had to watch this one from the stands as Thomas was not yet cleared to participate due to the transfer window.
Thomas is eligible to play for Ljungskile effective July 1st.
It was the first win for Vasby in four contests and is no doubt the highlight in what has been a dreary season for the suburban Stockhom club.
Eldin Kzica's goal in the eighth minute for the hosts sent a message to Noble and company that it would not be an easy day.
Kzica's shot from long range deflected off a defender and Noble could only watch it helplessly roll into the net.
Five minutes before halftime, Gabriel Altemark Vanneryr evened things up when he was the benificiary of Aleksandar Kitic's run into the Vasby penalty area as Kitic found Vanneryr all alone in front of the net and the attacker converted from close range.
The final ten minutes of the match saw the greatest flurry of goals starting with Magnus Eriksson's goal in the 80th minute for Vasby when an indecisive Noble was caught in no man's land and allowed Eriksson to take Michael Wentzel's pass and tap it in for the score.
Jesper Carlsson stretched the lead to two goals for the hosts in the 86th minute by scoring off a counterattack.
Andreas Lind pulled one back for Ljungskile in the 88th minute on a free kick but it was too little too late.
Next up for Ljungskile is a date on Sunday back at home versus Degerfors.
