IFK Knislinge

Ground: Helgevallen

Visits: 1

Date: 27th September 2020

Match: IFK Knislinge - Balsby  1-3  (Division 6 Skåne Nordöstra B)

Attendance: 65

As I said in the Yngsjö report the last weekend of September meant round 11 (of 12) in Division 4 to 6 in Skåne. Plenty of interesting games to choose from and I decided to attend another game this weekend. Knislinge is situated 20 minutes north of Kristianstad and at noon IFK Knislinge hosted Balsby at Helgevallen in Division 6 Nordöstra B. Helgevallen is named after the river Helge å which flows right by the ground. A natural grass pitch and no running tracks makes this a nice football ground. The weather was absolutely lovely and it was 21 C as the referee blew his whistle to kick-off the game. Edenryd will win this league but there are two promotion play-off spots as well and the winner of IFK Knislinge v Balsby would (more or less) be guaranteed one of those spots. It was free entrance and I estimated a total attendance of 60-65 at Helgevallen today. The importance of the game meant a decent away following from Balsby and around a third of those present supported the visitors.

Balsby was the better team early on and made it 0-1 in the 23rd minute. IFK Knislinge had the chance to equalize from the penalty sport but missed and a few minutes later it was 0-2. IFK Knislinge straight away pulled a goal back though meaning 1-2 at half-time. The second half was intense and Balsby had a player sent off for elbowing a Knislinge player in the stomach. With 20 minutes to go Balsby scored from the penalty spot to make it 1-3. IFK Knislinge tried their best but in the final minutes of the game they also had a player sent off and the game finished 1-3. Unless something very strange happens next weekend Balsby will end up in the promotion play-offs and their home game will be a target for me.
