May 04, 2011: The Cup Competition, Quarter finals:


NSÍ Runavík – EB/Streymur 0-3 (0-1)
EB/Streymur, who have been in the last 4 cup finals in succession – of which they have won the three - could make it five finals in a row as they emphatically beat NSÍ Runavík 3-0 to reach the semi-finals which will be contested over two legs.

EB/Streymur have struggled somewhat in the league during their last 3 league matches – narrowly beating 07 Vestur, drawing with NSÍ and losing against B36 – but today they once again proved that they are the team to beat this season; be it the cup or league.

EB/Streymur stormed out of the blocks and had three qualified finished within the first five minutes of the match. However, it was NSÍ who had the best opportunity of the match inside the first 10 minutes when defender Jens Joensen headed on the crossbar from a corner.

EB/Streymur’s dominance paid dividend shortly before halftime when forward Leif Niclasen put the visitors in front in two attempts.

Within 10 minutes of the second half right back Gert Hansen doubled EB/Streymur’s lead with a shot from the edge of the penalty area.

NSÍ was close to pull a goal back around the hour-mark, but Debes Danielsen’s header was saved by the upright.

Midway through the half, EB/Streymur sealed the victory with a terrific quick counter attack where Hans Pauli Samuelsen was played clear to score from within the the penalty area.



Víkingur – B68 Toftir 1-1 (0-0)
Extra time: 1-1 (0-0)
Penalties: 2-4

B68 advanced to the semi finals in dramatic fashion as they beat Víkingur on penalties.

Víkingur had the best scoring opportunities in the first half; their closest effort bouncing off the crossbar.

B68 nearly took the lead early in the second half when Jónleif Højgaard’s rattled the crossbar with a thunderous shot from 25 metres.

Víkingur then finally broke the deadlock after 70 minutes with a header from Finnur Justinussen, but B68 Senegalese forward Ibrahima Camara squared the tie 10 minutes later after a fine run to take the match into extra time.

Camara then put B68 ahead early in the second period of extra time which looked to be the winner; not least because Víkingur had Bárður Hansen sent off for a second bookable offence.However, 120 minutes had elapsed when 10-men Víkingur caught the B68-defence sleeping and Sølvi Vatnhamar equalized with the last kick of extra time to take the match to a deciding penalty shootout.

Here it was B68 who prevailed as goalkeeper Tórður Thomsen saved from Kaj Leo í Bartalsstovu and Evrard Ble to make it 4-2 to B68 in the penalty shoot-out and 6-4 on aggregate and a place in the semi finals.



ÍF Fuglafjørður vs. AB Argir 7-1 (1-1)
Last season’s losing cup finalists ÍF have qualified for the semi-finals again as they beat 1st divison’s AB Argir 7-1.

But nothing suggested such a losing-margin with the half time score at 1-1.

ÍF took the lead after 10 minutes when Jan Ellingsgaard headed home from a corner, but Teitur Jóanesarson equalized after half an hour with a shot following a corner to tie the match at halftime.

However, the possible upset looked all over when ÍF had made it 3-1 with a quarter of an hour of the second half. Bogi Løkin scored the first directly on freekick before Milan Kuljic turned the ball past his own goalkeeper to make it 3-1 for ÍF.

The floodgates then opened and Bogi Løkin scored his second goal before Bárður á Lakjuni made it 5-1. Bogi Løkin then completed his hat trick with a long range effort from 35 metres before Tummas Justinussen made it 7-1 for ÍF with another owngoal for AB in the closing minutes.



07 Vestur - KÍ Klaksvík 1-0 (1-0)
07 Vestur have reached their first cup semi final with a 1-0 win over KÍ.

Eli F. Nielsen scored the winning goal around the half-hour mark with a header from Tór-Ingar Akselsen’s in-swinging corner.

Although KÍ had much possession in the second half, they didn’t create clear-cut scoring opportunities.

In injury time KÍ’s Bárður Heinesen was sent off after he collided with 07 Vestur’s advancing goalkeeper, Hans Jørgensen. Jørgensen was stretchered off and sent to x-rays and Heinesen was sent to hospital with the ambulance. Is that why it’s called injury time…?
