Andrew Stadler (Wauwatosa West) got back on the scoreboard, and sparked his team to a victory on Saturday in Sweden's top-tier Allsvenskan.

Stadler's left-footed strike from the top of the box in the 52nd minute opened the scoring, and host Östersunds FK went on to rout GIF Sundsvall 4-0. (Watch highlights below)

It was the third goal of the season and first since May 18 for the 28-year-old Stadler. Östersunds (6-6-5), playing in the Allsvenskan for the first time in its 19-year history is eighth in the 16-team league with 13 matches remaining.
