JOHN KRETLOW - Monday, October 17, 2011
Matt Pyzdrowski and Ängelholms FF were knocked out of the promotion race while Nick Noble and Degerfors IF went down to Falkenberg FF, also knocking them out of a shot at promotion.
IFK Värnamo 1-1 Ängelholms FF
Matt Pyzdrowski and Ängelholms FF missed a chance at reaching an automatic promotion spot after they were held to a draw against IFK Värnamo.
Pyzdrowski started and went the distance.
After a scoreless first half, Michael Cassidy put Ängelholms in the lead in the 62nd minute to the delight of the away fans.
But, just three minutes later Gheorge Andronic leveled the game for Värnamo.
To the dismay of Ängelholms' fans, they were not able to score in the final minutes of the game, meaning they would only take one point from the affair.
With one game left Ängelholms will need a win with some help in order to reach an automatic promotion spot.
Joel Löw, Martin Claesson, and Viktor Claesson were booked for Värnamo while Johan Blomberg, David Benn Hage, and Tobias Johansson received yellow cards for Ängelholms.
Ängelholms finishes their season against Hammarby while Värnamo takes on Falkenberg.
Degerfors IF 1-3 Falkenberg FF
Brian Edwards and Degerfors IF disappointedly went down to Falkenberg FF, ending their shot at promotion this season.
Edwards started and went the distance in Degerfors' loss.
The first goal came in the 27th minute when David Smith scored for Falkenberg.
Just moments into the second half, Stefan Rodevåg scored off of a John Ley set up, putting Degerfors in a deep hole.
Then in the 84th minute, Robin Ganemyr put the dagger in Degerfors' heart when he scored for Falkenberg.
Christophe Lallet was able to get one back for Degerfors in stoppage time, but it was too little too late.
Christopher Wiktorsson, Alexander Andersson, and Christophe Lallet were booked for Degerfors.
Degerfors are now mathematically out of the promotion race going into the last game of the season against Brage.
Falkenberg will take on Värnamo.
Ljungskile SK 1-2 IK Brage
