The first half of the season ended at the weekend with no major shocks. Konyaspor however recorded a great 3-0 victory away to league leaders Assyriska and with it propell themselvbes back to the top of the table. It really is close at the top with only three points between first and fourth place. Långholmen once again were given a footballing lesson and once again conceeded 4 goals, Spårvägen were the victorious side this time. The Stripes were missing a handfull of key players and had to rely strongly on fringe players to make up the numbers. Club legend Robbie Graham made an appearance in this game and with it wrote himself into the Långholmen history books by being the first player to play for the club in all divisions.
Carl Major scored a double as Huddinge disposed of Panellinios, the bottom of the table side have been improving of late and will be confident of climbing the table in the second part of the season. Älvsjö had no problems with Vagnhärads and move closer to the top teams.
The teams at the bottom , like Långholmen, also let in four goals. Tellus taught Enhörna a lesson thanks to a fine hat trick by Christofer Törnlund. Mälarhöjden were no match for an effective Tyresö side and finish this half of the season on 7 points.
This week sees fixtures on both Tuesday and Wednesday as we move into the second part of the seaon. Långholmen face Spårvägen again in what will be a very hard match. The Stripes will have more or less half of their first team missing, the management will be scratching their heads in trying to find a way of not conceeding goals in this one.
Summer is upon us now and that means a break of about a month before the teams will be in action again and many will take the opportunity to reload their batteries and strenghthen their squads.
