Tre Kronor fell to the United States after overtime

Tre Kronor fell to the United States after overtime

Bolstered by Boston’s Linus Olmark in goal and Pittsburgh defender Marcus Peterson, Tre Kronor began the encounter with the United States in the same offensive manner against Great Britain. Rasmus Dallen gave Sweden the lead after less than two and a half minutes.

But five minutes later it was recognized. Ottawa player Adam Judit hit a high shot behind Olmark. The Americans got a boost of energy, but no more goals were scored in the first period, and even more so.

The competition, the intensity, and the fighting did not exist, as Garbenlove says of the first period and continues:

– But we go back to the game and we equalize and we take that with us.

He was convicted of intrusion

In the second half, he was very close to the new Swedish lead – but Karl Grundstrom’s 2-1 goal was disallowed for offside.

Instead, it was the United States that took the lead. The United States, in a strong game after Grundström was sent off a stumble, managed to make it 2-1 through Nate Schmidt with just over a minute to the left of the second half.

But 24-year-old Grundstrom will eventually hit his target.

– That was nice. It’s always good to score the first goal in the tournament, he tells SVT Sport.

Grundstrom .’s revenge

On his own, after American Luke Hughes lost the ball in his area when the club (!) went out, Grundstrom arranged the equalizer 13 minutes before the end of the last half.

Tre Kronor then got the rhythm up again, but no decision was made and the match went into overtime.

There, American Gaudette became the champion of her team.

The score came 3-2 with 11 seconds of overtime and with that, Tre Kronor’s winning streak was broken, four times in a row so far.

We have chances to win in third place, then when the extra time comes, there are small margins. These are opportunities we get when we change the game, says Garbinlov.

– It is not possible to enter into this type of matches and play half-heartedly. You have to be present, you have to be present, and if you don’t, you lose.

For Sweden, two matches remained in the group stage – against Norway and Latvia.
