Back-and-forth early in set one, both teams missed many serves. At 7-7, GVK was able to break the rhythm and take control of the match. Outside hitters Sanna Schultz and Lauren Rafdal stepped up to lead the team's offensive attack, and helped Gislaved secure a 25-16 win.

With momentum on their side, Gislaved's coaches opted for a line-up change to start the second frame. Unfortunately these changes appeared to have altered the player's mindset, allowing KFUM Göteborg's fighting spirit to take over and cruise to a 14-25 victory.

After the break, Gislaved stepped up their focus to earn a convincing victory, with identical 25-17 scores in both third and fourth frames.

Now GVK headed for the playoffs.

Lauren Rafdal (12 kills, 1 block, 1 ace)
Sanna Schultz (9 kills, 1 block, 1 ace)
Lisa Tannerfalk (7 kills, 1 block, 1 ace)

Natalie Ward (5 kills, 3 blocks, 6 aces)
Ellinor Nilsson (11 kills, 1 block, 1 ace)
