Sanja Radosavljević, left back for Kristianstad Handball, had already received two penalties when she shot the ball into the face of Skövde’s goalkeeper in the 26th minute of the match. This resulted in her third penalty and a red card, forcing her to watch the rest of the game from the sidelines.
Despite being a player down, Kristianstad fought bravely. The team was trailing 19-14 at halftime but managed to catch up to 32-30 in the second half. However, they squandered an opportunity when they had the momentum, and when the final whistle blew, Skövde emerged victorious with a score of 35-30.
This loss marks the second consecutive defeat for Kristianstad, who had a strong start to the season with four consecutive victories. Skövde, with this win, now has the same number of points as Kristianstad but sits one place lower in the league table due to a poorer goal difference.
