Second leg in semifinals between Baekkelaget and Elverum.
First leg ended 32-22 with Elverum securing a safe victory at home. In that match they took comando early and never let go. Overall feel was that Baekkelaget had a tough time getting through and had to fight way more for their goals. In established play they were lacking in pace and depth and often had to take somewhat desperate shots.
Baekkelaget made it into the playoffs as 7th team and surprised a lot by taking out #1 seed Arendal with 2 away wins. They are a solid team overall with no real starplayer that leads the team. Hauge and Rammel were only two players that had decent production last match with many other players like Gulliksen, Rod, Sundal, Björnstad having way to low accuracy.
Elverum is great in offense and my bet to win in the end, think they are better then both Halden and Haslum. Very strong in offense with many different option in players like Ivancsik, Lindboe, Mitrovic. Öien in goal is also a good keeper. Had trouble away vs Bodö in QF with the game going to overtime but is in general strong away with a 9-0-2 record during regular league. Won both previous meetings vs Baekkelaget in league, 36-34 at home and 21-28 away.
Might see Elverum do similar to the Bodö serie where they won by 13 at home and then had to go to OT in next leg, but will take that risk. They are well rested and with no major trouble, and it was a big difference in last leg. Baekkelaget also had a tough time losing to Arendal at home 21-27, winning both away matches. All in all I think Elverum is better and have the pace to cover the line. Elverum -2,5 goals is the prediction.
