Last Saturday, Söder played Sundsvall in the semifinal and won both games.

The second game saw Söder prevailing 16-0.
Thanks to the wins, Söder took the first spot of the Swedish National Final.
During the other semifinal, the rain did not allow both games between Skövde Saints and Enköping on Saturday.
Skövde Saints took game 1 with the result of 16-3. Game 2 took place on Sunday, because of the weather conditions, and Skövde Saints won 9-6 against Enköping, winning the second ticket for the Swedish Championship Final.
