May 21, 2009: Round 08 of the Vodafone Division:
07 Vestur – HB Tórshavn 2-3 (1-1)
0-1 Fróði Benjaminsen (pen)
1-1 Milan Pejcic
1-2 Fróði Benjaminsen
2-2 Tór-Ingar Akselsen
2-3 Milan Kuljic
HB are still topping the table after a 3-2 win over second from bottom 07 Vestur.
In a dull first half, HB took the lead after half hour with a penalty from Fróði Benjaminsen after Páll Mohr Joensen had been brought down.
But 07 Vestur equalized immediately with a goal from Milan Pejcic, after an initial shot had hit the post.
HB then upped the tempo in the second half and went close several times early on. Twice 07 Vestur saved on the line and once Hans á Lag headed on the crossbar before Fróði Benjaminsen headed home from a Rasmus Nolsøe corner 15 minutes through the half.
But 07 Vestur were still not done as former HB-player Tór-Ingar Akselsen restored parity again with an individual effort within 5 minutes.
However, 15 minutes from time HB again used their lethal weapon – set pieces from Rasmus Nolsøe – to power their way to 3 points when Nolsøe’s free kick was met by the head of Milan Kuljic who headed HB in front again. – It was well timed from Kuljic, because a few minutes later he was given the red card.
Both HB and NSÍ - who are trailing two points behind - have relatively easy games this coming Sunday and should get 3 points, but next Sunday (in 10 days) HB visit B68 Toftir who are in fine form at the moment while NSÍ visit KÍ Klaksvík. The lead could change hands after that round.
ÍF Fuglafjørður – NSÍ Runavík 1-2 (0-1)
0-1 Jan Martin Mortensen
0-2 Bogi Løkin
1-2 Andy Olsen (pen)
NSÍ opened the scoring around the half-hour mark when Karoly Potemkin set up Jan Martin Mortensen.
NSÍ was in control for most of the match and had several finishes, especially Karoly Potemkin, but NSÍ didn’t manage to make the opportunities count. They were almost punished for this in the dying minutes, but Johan Troest Davidsen saved on the line for NSÍ who then countered and made the points safe with a fine low shot from Bogi Løkin.
3 minutes into stoppage time Andy Olsen scored a consolation goal for ÍF on penalty.
B36 Tórshavn – B68 Toftir 0-2 (0-0)
0-1 Óli Olsen
0-2 Ndende Adama Gueye
B36 lost on home soil for the second time in succession as they were beaten by in-form B68.
After a goalless first half, B68 broke the deadlock early in the second half with a terrific long range shot from Óli Olsen.
B36 were reduced to 10 men with 15 minutes to go when defender Herbert í Lon Jacobsen was sent off. B68 took advantage of the situation just a few minutes later when Ndende Adama Gueye, the Senegalese player, made it 2-0 for B68.
With the 3 points, B68 leapfrog B36 in the table and move up to 5th place - although with the same number of points.
KÍ Klaksvík – EB/Streymur 0-0
Champions EB/Streymur are struggling and for the third time in succession they failed to get a victory as rock bottom KÍ Klaksvík managed to hold them to a goalless draw.
Goalkeeper Jákup Mikkelsen made several good saves for KÍ, but near the end Arnbjørn Hansen finally got past Mikkelsen, but Hansen fired his shot on the post.
Every point is invaluable for KÍ, but 1-pointers only help so much. But on the other hand, if KÍ manage to at least keep the gap to the crucial 8th place to about 3 or 4 points, then KÍ will think they can make that up when they will strengthen their team (as they have hinted) with new players when the transfer window opens in the summer.
AB Argir – Víkingur 0-1 (0-1)
0-1 Finnur Justinussen
Víkingur scored what proved to be the winning goal after about 25 minutes. The Hungarian Zoltan Bukszegi (who played his first match this season after having been injured) and Hans Jørgin Djurhuus combined well to set up Finnur Justinussen for his 5th goal of the season.
AB was desperately close in getting an equalizer in the dying moments when they hit the crossbar with a header.
