July 01 - 03, 2006: Round 15 of the Formula Division:
ÍF Fuglafjørður - VB/Sumba 2-1 (2-0)
VB/Sumba won 3 priceless points by beating ÍF Fuglafjørður 2-1. VB/Sumba had three new players in the team and this seemed to strengthen them quite much. Tummas Pauli Olsen has switched from B71 Sandoy in the first division and the two others are from Serbia. VB/Sumba scored both their goals in the first half and even though VB/Sumba played the most of the second half with 10 men, as Evrard Ble, who scored the second goal, was sent off for a second bookable offense, they managed to take the 3 valuable points. With the 3 points, VB/Sumba leapfrogged both ÍF and B68 to take 8th spot in the table, although B68 can overtake them again if they beat EB/Streymur on Monday night.
HB Tórshavn totally collapse as
B36 Tórshavn win 6-0!
After B36 scored to 2-0 midway into the second half, HB threw caution to the wind in quest for an equalizer and left a gaping hole in the defence which B36 were quick to take advantage of. – In the end it was total humiliation for HB, as B36 scored at will.
But nothing suggested such a score-line in the first half, or midway into the second, as the game until then was an even affair with few scoring opportunities. But it was B36 who scored the all-important goal after 16 minutes of the first half when Sylla made a perfect cross from the right to Bergur Midjord who, standing on the penalty-spot, scored with a powerful header.
HB's best chance came about 30 minutes into the first half, when Páll Mohr Joensen made a cheeky pass with his heal to Tór-Ingar Akselsen, who set up Rókur av Fløtum Jespersen, but Rókur blasted the shot well wide of goal.
Somehow, this match never felt like the intense local derby which the Tórshavn-derby usually is. There didn't seem to be any electricity in the air, neither among the players nor the crowd. On the pitch, it often looked like it was a friendly game going on as there just didn't seem to be any sparkles in it. - Maybe it's the World Cup that's affecting. It's not easy to compete against that, although the World Cup has also had its fair share of dull moments.
The start of the second half was as even as the first one and neither team was creating many scoring opportunities.
But 25 minutes into the second half, a mistake in HB's defence allowed Sylla through, and alone with the goalkeeper he made no mistake and made it 2-0 for B36.
HB then substituted defensive players with more offensive ones in search for an equalizer, but this left a gaping hole in the defence which B36 was quick to take advantage of.
From the 78th minute to the end, B36 scored another 4 goals. The first one was from only 17 year-old Johan Ellingsgaard; then Bergur Midjord added two to complete his hat-trick, and Hanus Thorleifsson made it 6-0 in the 90th minute.
Never before has any HB team collapsed in such a way it did today and after it became 3-0, there didn't seem to be any will at all to at least limit the defeat. That's not good enough, as 6-0 is going to haunt HB for years or forever. A black spot in HB's otherwise proud history. And it is the players' duty to defend it, but today they forgot that.
HB are lucky to meat VB/Sumba in their next match, as they have to get back on track quickly, but it's difficult to guess how this result will affect the future of the HB team. And VB/Sumba haven't become an easier team to beat after they have strengthened their team with two new Serbian players, who played for the first time in the win over ÍF yesterday. That match is played on July 9, the same day as the World Cup final…
NSÍ Runavík – KÍ Kaksvík 1-1 (1-1)
Two headed goals provided NSÌ and KÍ a point each in today's 1-1 draw. Óli Hansen put NSÍ in front, but KÍ's "goalkeeper", who has just played as a striker though, equalized for the visitors.
Skála – GI Gøta 0-0
GÍ is seem to be loosing the pace at the moment and with today's goalless draw, they have only won 1 of their last 5 matches. Although 1 point isn't much, Skála seem to be relatively safe from relegation.
EB/Streymur – B68 Toftir 8-2 (6-2)
This match was scheduled to be played on Sunday, July 2nd, but was postponed to Monday due to the fact that there aren't enough referees, would you believe it!?
B68 gave EB/Streymur some resistance in the first half an hour by twice levelling the score to 1-1 and 2-2, but then EB/Streymur ran riot and won 8-2! EB/Streymur asre now 2 points clear of B36 at the top of the table and at the moment, it looks like it’s between either of those two we should find the champion. But, there are still 12 games left to be played and there are still only 6 points from no. 6 HB to no. 1 EB/Streymur, so nothing is decided yet. In the other end, things look grim for B68 who stay in 9th position. On Sunday, they take on ÍF in 10th place. 3 points are vital or both clubs.
