Ghanaian midfielder Portia Boakye scored her first goal for Djurgarden in their 3-2 defeat against Uppsala in Damasvenskan season opener on Saturday.
Boakye played full throttle in the five-goal thriller as Uppsala sealed the maximum points at Studenternas IP.
Tilde Lindwall opened the scoring as Pierre Fondin’s team gained the lead in the 8th minute but Sara Olai leveled for her side in the 25th minute.
Boakye put the visitors back in front six minutes later. After the restart, Cassandra Korhonen cancelled out Boakye’s effort to level matters in the 81st minute.
Three minutes later, the South Africa international received her marching orders allowing the home side to rally late to overpower their visitors to claim the crucial winner through substitute Beata Olsson deep inside injury time.
The defeat leaves Djurgården in 10th position after a losing start to a new campaign.
The Black Queens midfielder has scored one goal in the Swedish top-flight since joining Djurgården in 2018 from Ostersunds.
