The team for USM consisted of Jakob (team captain), Måns, Arvid and Roni from Akka plus Evelina and Hjalmar from Färila. Elsa was the coach. The team was surprisingly small due to three last-minute drop-outs, but the team decided to do the best of the situation.

The first day the main goal was to get to know each other on the pitch. Akka played better and better throughout the tournament. The other teams were quite capable and competent and after the round robin Akka had two victories and four losses. Impressingly Stenugnsund had brough two teams with refugees as part of an integration project. The two victories was enough to continue to the game for the bronze medal against KFUM Örebro. The two teams had already met. Although Akka gave their best it wasn’t enough, so Akka ended up on fourth place out of seven.

During the tournament Akka showed their true Akka-ness and kept their spirit high. At the end they were awarded with the spirit price!
