Luleå win the SDHL 2018/9


On Thursday night in the Coop Arena in Luleå the home team took their third SDHL title in four years in convincing style in the Match 5 decider.

The pre-match favourites Luleå had won the regular season in style and were expected to walk the series over third placed Linköping.

But the Östergötland club had other ideas and played an extremely impressive series, neutralizing the northern club’s star- forwards and taking many opportunities on the counterattack. In the end it was not enough last year’s champions took the series 3-2.
