MALMÖ, SWEDEN – If you had only watched the first quarter of the game, it would have seemed #20-ranked Stockholm had firm control of scoring and was going to run away with the game. Over an initial 13 jams, #29-ranked Kallio was only able to gather ten points to 48 by Stockholm. But then Kallio surged forward and, after holding a brief lead, were down by just 12 points going into the halftime break.
Kallio actually ended up with a slight lead status advantage in each half and did better with total penalties overall. However, they were never able to get those advantages to pay off with points, to take the game lead back from Stockholm – while they did close the gap, they fell short by the time the clock ran out. Inevitably, Stockholm took their second win of their weekend of three games, beating Kallio 184-166.
