Sweden round-up: Late goals earn AIK derby draw

Three goals in the final eleven minutes gave AIK Solna a 3-3 draw at home to rivals Djurgårdens IF.

A remarkable late comeback earned AIK Solna a 3-3 draw at home to Djurgårdens IF in the ninth round of matches in the Allsvenskan.

Djurgården take control
In a fiercely contested local derby, Djurgården largely controlled the game in the opening 45 minutes and took the lead shortly before half-time through Johan Elmander. The away team continued to press forward after the interval, and further strikes from Kim Källström and Elmander again seemed to have earned Djurgården all three points.

Remarkable revival
However, Mats Rubarths pulled a goal back eleven minutes from time to give AIK a glimmer of hope, and Stefan Ishizaki then scored another five minutes later to set up a frantic finale. One minute into stoppage time, Daniel Tjernström's cross was headed into the Djurgården net by substitute Samuel Ayorinde to cap an astonishing late fightback.

Hammarby go top
The result enabled Hammarby to move to the top of the table, as a goal from Dede earned a 1-0 away win at Örgryte IS that preserved their unbeaten league record. Örebro SK also closed in on the leading group with a 2-1 home win against GIF Sundsvall. Mikael Danielsson and Tomas Andersson were on target for the home side, with Bala Garba scoring Sundsvall's reply.

Surprise defeat
Helsingborgs IF, however, suffered an unexpected setback as they were defeated 4-0 at home by an Enköpings SK side who had collected only one point from their first eight league matches. Brazilian midfield player Berger Santo scored the first two goals, with further strikes from Nichlas Norell and Magnus Reuterwall completing an emphatic win for the away side.

Two for Sypniewski
Igor Sypniewski was instrumental in Halmstads BK's 3-0 win against Landskrona BoIS, scoring twice and creating the other for Torbjörn Arvidsson, while IFK Göteborg were defeated 2-1 at IF Elfsborg, with Anderas Klarström and Kristoffer Arvhage earning the home side the win. Östers IF slipped into the relegation zone after a 2-0 defeat at home to Malmö FF.
