YA Cup Cups between Gärsnäs AIS and IFK Simrishamn were settled during the final stages of the match when two penalties played the lead roles.
The guests started strongest and also received early dividends in the fifth minute when Dennis Lundbladh met a low-pitched corner which he encountered in the crowds in front of goal. The home team worked their way into the match and when Axel Andersson kept his head on a left-hand side, the home crowd in the swanky May evening on well-managed Gärsvalla. 11 stood half.
Penalty in 88 turned the match picture total
In the second half, Gärsnäs closed better in the middle of the track so that Simrishamn's advances, usually signed by Mikael Lindström, were stopped. But it was still a Lindström action that became match-fixing in the 88 minute. Gärsnäs' strong defense game kept going back and forth for Simrishamns advances. The audience around the sports ground just waited for Gärsnäs to use his disability penalty which could have meant 2-1 management and minimal playing time left for a away receipt. But instead, Lindstrom set full speed in a dribble tree which was stopped just outside the penalty area by a home player. Lindström fell into the penalty area and the referee pointed to the penalty point. Jonathan Karlsen stepped forward and pressed the elm meter. When Simrishamn's goalkeeper then saved Gärsnäs's handicap penalty, the home team failed to turn the match. Simrishamn kept the few minutes left and won with 2-1.
