JOHN KRETLOW - Wednesday, August 24, 2011
Matt Pyzdrowski and Ängelholms took down Brian Edwards and Degerfors IF in the battle between Americans in the Superettan, while the American duo of Nick Noble and Michael Thomas featured once again for Ljungskile SK.
Landskrona Bois 0-0 Ljungskile SK
Nick Noble and Michael Thomas both featured in Ljungskile SK's tie against Landskrona Bois this weekend.
The American duo started and went the distance for Ljungskile.
It was an opportunity lost for Ljungskile, who could have jumped to within three points of the last promotion spot. Landskrona will also feel frustrated, having kept their spot in the relegation zone.
Ljungskile's Johan Patriksson was cautioned while Frederick Liverstam received a yellow card for Landskrona.
Ljungskile next plays Degerfors IF and Landskrona takes on IK Brage.
Degerfors IF 1-3 Ängelholms FF
Matt Pyzdrowski and Ängelholms FF took down Brian Edwards and Degerfors IF in the battle between American goalies in Superettan action this weekend.
Pyzdrowski started and went the distance for Ängelholms, while his new teammate, Lester Dewee, was an unused sub. Edwards got the start for Degerfors and went the full ninety minutes.
Amadaiya Rennie opened the scoring for Degerfors in the 40th minute, rewarding them for a first half of continued pressure throughout.
Tobias Johansson though put Ängelholms on the board when he fired home a Michael Cassidy pass in the 57th minute, leveling the game.
In the 69th minute, Martin Andersen put Ängelholms in the lead when he received a pass from Cassidy once again.
Just six minutes later, Tobias Johansson gave Ängelholms an insurance goal after Antonio Rojas set him up.
Ängelholms now extends their lead at the top of the standings while Degerfors missed a vital shot at tying GIF Sundsvall for the last promotion spot in the Superettan.
Cassidy received a yellow card for Ängelholms while Mark de Bruin was booked for Degerfors.
Degerfors next takes on Ljungskile SK. Ängelholms plays Falkenberg FF next week as well.
Ryan Miller did no feature in Halmstad's loss to Helsingborgs IF.
Sam Petrone did not make the gameday roster in Mjälby's loss to Örebro.
