Rönnby went on a shock loss against Warberg (5-7) in the last round. Back home against the valley.
Rönnby was in charge of 6-4 ahead of the last season but dropped to 6-7. Something unnecessary according to John Kvist:
"Before the third period, we talked about entering and playing easily. We did not. Got a little too much thought in the players' heads and the Dale took advantage of our mistakes.
But Rönnby came back and finished with just four minutes left by Hanna Garman. And suddenly Jonna Sjöberg settled for a minute and fixed the bonus points to Rönnby.
"I am very pleased that we took back the initiative. Strong of us after the heavy match against Warberg at the latest. Now we showed a good morale.
"We really needed these two points to feel we're in the race again. It's quite tough between places 6-10. One victory for us is up at the playoffs.
Kvist celebrated the triumphal shooter and match winner Jonna Sjöberg who got rid of a fairly heavy season start.
"Jonna was really good. It was a bit of the old Jonna we saw. She has not been shown so much so far this year. How good can she be? And we have more players that we can get more out of.
After victory, Rönnby has only one point up to Gothenburg at the eighth and final playoffs.
– I do not feel worried. One sees that we are really good when we get to the game. It's about believing in ourselves and continuing to work hard, so we will take more points.
"The big pumps are really only Warberg and Jönköping where we did not count on losing points.
