May 12 & 13, 2010: Round 07 of the Vodafone Division:
May 12 B68 Toftir - NSÍ Runavík 0-3 (0-1) 0-1 Christian Høgni Jacobsen 0-2 Klæmint Olsen 0-3 Christian Høgni Jacobsen
NSÍ leapfrogged B68 in the table with a comfortable 3-0 win and move up to a provisional 3rd spot in the table.
NSÍ opened the scoring shortly before the break with a goal from Vodafone Division top scorer Christian Høgni Jacobsen who can celebrate his 30th birthday today!
NSÍ scored two more goals in the second half. Klæmint Olsen scored the first after 10 minutes and Christian Høgni Jacobsen netted his second of the game 10 minutes later with a long range effort to make it 3-0 for the visitors.
The match was played in blustery conditions with the wind mostly blowing across the field.
EB/Streymur - AB Argir 2-1 (1-1) 0-1 Evrard Blé (pen) 1-1 Alex dos Santos 2-1 Gert Hansen
AB took the lead 20 minutes through the first half with a penalty from Ivorian Evrard Blé, but EB/Streymur were back on level terms within 10 minutes after good combinations set up Brazilian left back Alex dos Santos to fire the ball into the back of the net.
25 minutes through the second half Gert Hansen scored what proved to be the winning goal for EB/Streymur.
A couple of minutes from the end, AB's goalkeeper Tórður Thomsen was shown the red card for saying something to the referee.
AB are still rooted to the bottom of the table after today’s loss, but as also FC Suðuroy and B71 lost, the gab to safety remains 4 points.
EB/Streymur can't have any hope of catching leaders HB Tórshavn who are 9 points ahead, but the runners up spot is now in reach again, as B36, Víkingur and ÍF Fuglafjørður are tied in second spot, 4 points ahead of EB/Streymur.
For the fourth time in succession B36 failed to win, after they had maximum points after 3 rounds. B36 made a similar start to the season last year where they in the end barely avoided relegation. However, relegation will not be an issue this season, but a their hope of the title after 3 rounds is also looking more and more unrealistic.
Sam Jacobsen made B36 pay for sloppy defending after only 3 minutes and a quarter of an hour through the second half Súni Olsen doubled Víkingur´s advantage from the penalty spot.
Súni Olsen should have killed the game when he was completely clear, but B36 goalkeeper Meinhardt Joensen made a fine save.
Instead, it was B36 who were given a lifeline with a quarter of an hour remaining when Hjalgrím Elttør set up Heini Eysturoy for an easy finish.
B36 had a couple of clear-cut scoring opportunities in the dying moments, but Víkingur goalkeeper Geza Turi made some super-saves to keep B36 at bay.
ÍF Fuglafjørður - FC Suðuroy 2-0 (1-0) 1-0 Kaj Ennigarð 2-0 Nenad Saric
ÍF moved up to 3rd spot in the table, equal on poiunts with B36 in second and Víkingur in 4th place, after their 2-0 win over FC Suðuroy who created plenty of chances, however.
ÍF opened the scoring after 20 minutes when a freekick was knocked to the far post to defender Kaj Ennigarð who headed home.
ÍF made the points safe after 70 minutes when Øssur Dalbúð set up Nenad Saric to make it 2-0.
B71 Sandoy - HB Tórshavn 0-1 (0-1) 0-1 Hendrik Rubeksen
After a 1-0 win over B71 Sandoy, HB are sitting comfortably on op of the table 5 points ahead of chasers B36, ÍF and Víkingur.
After an even opening, HB eventually seemed to gain the upper hand, but without creating real scoring opportunities however. But it was still enough to give HB the lead when B71 goalkeeper Bárður Johannesen lost an aerial duel with a HB player and the ball bounced off a B71-defender to Hendrik Rubeksen for a simple finish.
The second half was again an even affair. HB should have scored when Rógvi Poulsen was clear, but Johannesen made a fine save.
B71 were close to an equalizer when Mads Hentze’s header from a corner was cleared off the line.
B71 have not been the whipping-boys as many had predicted, not least after their 5-0 defeat to B68 in the first round, and it will be exciting to see if they can keep on getting points in future games and give AB Argir and FC Suðuroy a run for their money in the relegation battle.
