16 June 2012: HIF - Sillhövda 5-1 (1-1)
On paper an easy home game against the last team Sillhövda.
underestimation. Preparing with a cup of tea at the local
cafe. Moving on to Österås. No queuing at the ticket
window. The man
at the window is wondering if I should not have senior discount!
Many years there
yet. Sit down on the simple gallery. Three referees comes out, the
I've seen with mohikan haircut. The game begins. Ops, Sillhövda
nods in the
bar. Shortly after make HIF 1-0. Sillhövda stands
up well, but a mediocre games. HIF's coach is concerned,
Sillhövda's directs his
players. Sillhövda player misses the ball, gets angry and kicks
a water bottle
that almost hits the linesman. He is warned. The audience follows
game. Ouch, high kick and nosebleeds. Probably the same who was
recently, sent off. Ajajaj, with only ten players make
Sillhövda 1-1. Pause and sausage.
I have to go to the mens room even though the game begins again. On
the way back
makes HIF 2-1 on
penalty. I miss that. Still sleepy game. Possibilties in more HIF
should be unstable weather, someone has an umbrella with in the
glorious beautiful weather. Spectators enjoy the weather instead of
game. Next-generation players learn not to underestimate inferior
teams. In the end, it takes off, HIF makes three quick goals. My
down. Sillhövda get one more player sent off, for what I
perceive not. Possibility of
more goals, but Sillhövdas goalie is good. The end, 5-1 is
not the game. Two Hässleholm teams now top the series. Looks
with a Mariestads beer on a open-air cafe on first avenue.
We have an appointment with a female friend (who is uninterested in
football) for dinner at
hotel Statt, but fully booked. Have a steak at Casablanca instead.
