June 14 - 18, 2006: Round 13 of the Formula Division:

EB/Streymur regain the top spot in the table

June 14:

HB Tórshavn – GÍ Gøta 1-2 (0-2)
0-1 Gunnar Nielsen
0-2 Gunnar Nielsen
1-2 Rókur av Fløtum Jespersen

HB found it hard to play against a physical GÍ-side and when GÍ took an early lead, it was all uphill for HB.

GÍ took the lead after only 11 minutes when a very passive looking HB-defence allowed Argentinian Gunnar Nielsen, on the left, to go through, and with simple dribbles, he made space for himself to fire the shot between the legs of the goalkeeper, Tróndur Vatnhamar.

When GÍ then made it 2-0, 5 minutes from the break, it was always going to be very difficult for HB to get anything out of the match.

GÍ's second goal was again scored by Gunnar Nielsen. And again he took advantage of the drowsy HB-defence who allowed him to almost stroll through and into the penalty area. But Gunnar placed his shot on the post this time, but GÍ's Símun Louis Jacobsen was first on the rebound, but this time HB saved on the line, but Gunnar Nielsen was first on the rebound and hammered it into the back of the net.

HB found it very difficult to create opportunities against a compact and well organized GÍ defence and created no clear-cut scoring opportunities.

HB's best effort came from a Rasmus Nolsøe free kick, but it was straight on GÍ's goalkeeper, Geza Turi.

GÍ on the other hand could have scored another, when Símun Louis Jacobsen fired a thunderous shot from long range, but Tróndur Vatnhamar made a fine diving save.

In the second half, HB's play improved slightly and about a quarter of an hour into the second half, HB reduced the score, when Rókur av Fløtum Jespersen was played clear in the penalty area and beat the goalkeeper.

Although HB dominated the second half, they still couldn't break down GÍ's defence and the closest HB came, was when Jovan late in the game tried from long range, but the goalkeeper made a terrific one-handed diving save.

Time ran out and GÍ won a deserved victory and take the lead in the Formula Division – at least until Sunday, when EB/Streymur play VB/sumba.

June 17:

NSÍ Runavík – Skála 2-0 (0-0)
With 2 second half goals, red hot Christian Høgni Jacobsen added 3 more points to NSÍ's tally and they are now equal on points with HB and EB/Streymur, and 2 points behind leaders GÍ Gøta. – However, EB/Streymur will overtake them all, if they beat VB/Sumba tomorrow, Sunday. Christian Høgni Jacobsen now has scored 12 goals in 13 matches.

June 18:

EB/Streymur – VB/Sumba 4-0 (3-0)
EB/Streymur is back at the top of the table after hammering VB/Sumba 4-0. EB/Streymur should probably have scored another 4 and therefore is no reason to mention that VB/Sumba hit the crossbar in the first half. – Well, now I did anyway… VB/Sumba is still waiting for their two new Serbian players; they might be ready for next week’s game against B68. And VB/Sumba badly need them, as both ÍF and B68 seem to be improving, although B68 lost today, but it was narrow.

B68 Toftir – B36 Tórshavn 0-1 (0-0)
B68 matched B36 all the way, but 15 minutes from time, Sylla snatched all 3 points for B36. B36 is not showing championship form, but they still hang in there and are only 4 points adrift of the leaders, EB/Streymur. B68 will play away to VB/Sumba next Sunday in a huge game for avoiding relegation. B68 are probably small favourites, but so they were last time against VB/Sumba, but then B68 lost after having been leading 2-0. VB/Sumba’s 2 new Serbian players might be an important factor. But it’s not clear yet if they will be ready for the match.

ÍF Fuglafjørður – KÍ Klaksvík 0-0
ÍF earned another point in today’s draw against KÍ, and with the draw last week against GÍ, there are signs that ÍF are improving. KÍ’s form, on the other hand, seem to be dipping and now they have only won 1 of their last 7 matches. KÍ’s best (and only) scoring opportunity came from Christian Lundbeg (who played his first match for KÍ) when he hit the crossbar with an header. On Wednesday, KÍ take on HB, who today drew with FC Dinaburg in the Intertoto Cup.
