Five 9ers Fanny Hjelm and Caroline Murray started for their respective teams.

CAROLINE MURRAY went right into the starting XI for AIK. The 27-year old made her top league debut in the first game of the season, against Växjö DFF.
Both AIK and Caroline have started the season very well. Caroline has played 90 minutes in every game so far, and the team is currently 9th in the table.
