April 16 & 18, 2010: Round 04 of the Vodafone Division:

April 16

Víkingur – EB/Streymur 2-2 (0-0)
0-1 Hans Pauli Samuelsen
0-2 Kristoffur Jacobsen (pen)
1-2 Súni Olsen
2-2 Sølvi Vatnhamar

Víkingur hold on to their second place in the table as they come back from a two goal deficit to snatch a draw in the dying moments.

After a goalless first half which EB/Streymur had dominated, the deadlock was finally broken a few minutes into the second half thanks to Hans Pauli Samuelsen's free kick.

Although EB/Streymur's Brazilian left back Alex dos Santos was sent off shortly after the goal for two yellow cards in the space of only two minutes, EB/Streymur still managed to double their lead some 20 minutes through the half with a penalty from Kristoffur Jakobsen (who joined EB/Streymur after KÍ Klaksvík was relegated last season).

But with a quarter of an hour remaining of normal time, Víkingur staged a great comeback as Súni Olsen scored directly from the freekick (Olsen had started the match on the bench because of flue. Also central defender Niclas Niclassen was missing because of the same reason while the other centre back Atli Gregersen had recovered from it just in time. EB/Streymur were also missing an important player in defence as Marni Djurhuus’s planned trip from Denmark had to be cancelled because all planes in Denmark have been grounded because of the ashes floating in from the volcano in Iceland).

And in the dying moments, Víkingur snatched a draw when Sølvi Vatnhamar scored after a scramble.

But is's probably B36 Tórshavn who are the most happy for the draw as they don’t mind a bit that their challengers only get a point a piece.

April 18

HB Tórshavn – NSÍ Runavík 2-1 (0-0)
0-1 Christian Høgni Jacobsen
1-1 Hendrik Rubeksen
2-1 Andrew av Fløtum

HB looked dead and buried when Christian Høgni Jacobsen put NSÍ in front after 72 minutes, but with two goals in the dying moments, HB snatched a dramatic victory.

The first half was a very even one, where neither team managed to create much, but HB were slightly more threatening, though. The best chance fell to HB halfway through the half when Andrew av Fløtum played Milan Kuljic clear, but Kuljic failed to get a proper shot in, however.

Apart from this, there wasn’t much action in front of the goals. NSÍ had no qualified finish during the first 45 minutes.

The second half followed a similar pattern. HB had a couple of chances where the best fell to Rógvi Poulsen who broke into the penalty area forcing his way in-between two defenders, but Andras Gango in the NSÍ goal made a fine save to block Poulsen’s shot.

As the second half progressed, NSÍ finally made an effort in getting forward and put in some threatening crosses. And 72 minutes through the match they were awarded for their more positive approach. HB goalkeeper Símun Rógvi Hansen, who had replaced Marcin Dawid again, failed to deal properly with a high cross and the ball fell to Christian Høgni Jacobsen who put the visitors in front.

HB found it difficult to reply and time was ebbing out. Fróði Benjaminsen who had played in defence was again moved forward to the midfield and Tór-Ingar Akselsen and Hendrik Rubeksen came on. This turned out to be a decisive…

In the 90th minute, Tór-Ingar Akselsen received the ball in the AB penalty area. His clever shot-feint put off defenders off and Akselsen managed to get a sot in. Goalkeeper Gango seemed to have saved it, but he lost the ball again and Hendrik Rubeksen was on places to poke it in for a dramatic equalizer.

And it got even more dramatic a minute later!

HB attacked, and both Fróði Benjaminsen and Andrew av Fløtum were involved playing Símun Samuelsen clear, but Andras Gango came out of his goal to block the shot, but the ball rebounded to Andrew av Fløtum who only had to place the ball around the defender and into the empty goal for an unreal winner.

AB Argir - B36 Tórshavn 2-2 (1-1)
1-0 Stig-Roar Søbstad
1-1 Bárður Olsen
1-2 Hjalgrím Elttør
2-2 Morten Overgaard

B36 lost their first points of the season as they were held to a 2-2 draw by AB.

AB’s Norwegian striker Stig-Roar Søbstad headed AB in front after only 8 minutes after a perfect cross from Mortan úr Hørg.

B36 levelled the match halfway through the first half with a cracking shot from midfielder Bárður Olsen. B36 also went close on other occasions when two shots hit the post both before and after their equalizer.

25 minutes into the second half AB’s Ivorian defender Tehe Aristide made terrible blunder as he played B36’s forward Hjalgrím Elttør clear to put B36 in front.

As B36 retreated to defend their lead, AB seized the initiative and managed to force an equalizer after a scramble near to the end of normal time. Danish defender Morten Overgaard was credited for the goal.

FC Suðuroy - B68 Toftir 3-1 (0-0)

1-0 Jón Krosslá Poulsen
2-0 Obi Ikechukwu Charles
2-1 Pól Jóhannus Justinussen
3-1 Obi Ikechukwu Charles

With a 3-1 win over B68, FC Suðuroy have sent strong signals to the rest that they have no intention of getting relegated again. Especially on home soil, guests shall not expect to get much back home.

After 0-0 at half-time, Suðuroy broke the deadlock some 10 minutes into the second half thanks to Jón Krosslá Poulsen.

Suðuroy went further ahead 25 minutes through the half when Nigerian forward Obi Ikechukwu Charles took advantage of a costly mistake in B68’s defence.

With 10 minutes remaining Jóhannus Justinussen pulled a goal back for B68, but the hope for a comeback was short-lived as Obi Charles netted again just 3 minutes later after combining well with Jón Krosslá Poulsen.

ÍF Fuglafjørður - B71 Sandoy 1-1 (1-0)
1-0 Rógvi Jacobsen
1-1 Símin Hansen

Surprisingly - for most -, B71 earned another point today after a 1-1 draw with ÍF.

ÍF had dominated the first half and created a number of clearcut chances, but they were all missed until Rógvi Jacobsen finally made one count just before half time as he headed home from Áki Petersen's cross.

But B71 were back on level terms immediately after the restart as ÍF goalkeeper Jákup Mikkelsen made a real blunder when he allowed Símun Hansen's shot from 30 metres to go in.

The second half was more even than the first, but Rógvi Jacobsen almost grabbed a last gasp winner for ÍF as he hit the upright.
