Sweden recorded back-to-back wins at the Women’s Bandy World Championship by overcoming Norway on the second day of action in Åby.

Both teams were seeking to build on opening day Pool A wins, with Sweden having eased past Finland while Norway had edged the United States.

Defending champions Sweden secured a 7-1 victory in the contest, with Lisa Östman, Emma Ahlander, Matilda Svenler, Ida Friman and Tilda Ström all scoring in the match.

Ingrid Heien Bjonge scored Norway’s solitary goal in the tie.

The result puts Sweden at the top of the Pool A standings.

Finland recovered from their opening day defeat by beating the US 6-3, with Linda Lohiniva, Susanna Simola and Joanna Nykänen finding the net in the match.

Pool A will conclude tomorrow, with the results determining the line-up for the semi-finals.

Sweden and Russia have met in all 10 World Championship finals to date.

Sweden triumphed on nine occasions, with Russia’s sole victory coming in 2014.

Russia are absent due to the nation’s invasion of Ukraine, which has largely led to their exile from world sport.

Pool B competition continued with Britain recording their second victory.

Britain overcame Estonia 5-2, with the result adding to their opening day win over Switzerland.

The Netherlands have also achieved consecutive wins, after earning a narrow 1-0 win over Switzerland.

Ukraine had been due to compete at the World Championships, but are absent due to the ongoing conflict.
