But Saturday could finally suksesstrener Michael Apelgren and his team cheer for the NMT success.

To pause the led Elverum 14-10. It was much thanks to the Nergaards wonderful keeperspill that hedmarkingene had the door.
After the page change increased the favorite a head start. Just over ten minutes into the annenomgangen was Elverum top 20-14.
Earlier in the fall lost Elverum 28-30 when the teams met in the series. Saturday came revansjen.
