Round 03 of the premier league "effodeildin":
KÍ Klaksvík - HB Tórshavn 1-1 (1-1)
1-0 Kristoffur Jakobsen
1-1 Christain R. Mouritsen
HB failed to cling on to the top spot in the table after a 1-1 draw away to KÍ, where they missed a second half penalty which could have clinched the victory.
HB had been close to taking the lead within the first quarter of an hour with an effort on the crossbar from Símun Samuelsen before KÍ started to threaten at the other end.
Midway through the half the pressure paid dividend when Kristoffur Jacobsen scored on the rebound after HB goalkeeper Teitur Gestsson had saved the initial effort Páll Klettskarð.
HB equalized 10 minutes later with a similar goal where Andras Gango had saved the initial shot from Hallur Hansson before Christian R. Mouritsen tucked in the rebound.
HB had the better chances in the second half, but Gango made some crucial saves.
With 15 minutes to go HB were given a glorious opportunity to get the winning goal as Fróði Benjaminsen went down in the penalty area and was awarded a penalty. He took it himself… and we know how that often turns out… Yes, he missed as Gango saved and the header from the rebound from Benjaminsen clipped the crossbar and dropped behind the goal.
Why can't they just follow the golden rule: The fowled player should not take the penalty himself.
HB's next league match is on 15 April at home against Víkingur who kept their 100% record intact with an easy win over B68 Toftir. This match should give an indicator of what HB are really made of this season.
B36 Tórshavn - ÍF Fuglafjørður 1-1 (0-0)
1-0 Dánjal Rói Olsen
1-1 Jan Ellingsgaaard
After B36 had dominated the first 15 minutes, ÍF started to come forward and had the better chances in the first half.
ÍF continued to create the better chances in the second half, an on the hour-mark, Danish forward Simon Skibsted was ever so close to score when his header hit the corner of the woodwork.
Five minutes later ÍF were hit by a sucker punch when Dánjal Rói Olsen scored with his second touch of the ball as he had been played clear by Bárður Olsen, who had also come on for the second half. Olsen’s first touch had been when he started that same attack. He had replaced the half-injured Lukasz Cieslewicz.
As time was ebbing away, it looked like the defending champions were going to record their third win in three games, but in added time Jan Ellingsgaard equalized with a fine shot from 18 metres.
But there was some controversy involved, however, as B36 claimed they had intended to kick the ball over the touchline to stop play, so that a defender could get treatment. But before the ball had crossed the line, ÍF had gotten hold of the ball and went straight no attack (information based on second-hand knowledge – ÍF might have another version).
Víkingur - B68 Toftir 2-0 (1-0)
1-0 Evrard Ble
2-0 Kaj Leo í Bartalsstovu
Víkingur took the lead before the minute hand had made two rounds on the clock when Ivorian midfielder Evrard Ble headed home from the corner.
Although B68 had more of the possession for long periods of the first half, they failed to create clear-cut scoring opportunities.
After turmoil for most of the second half, Víkingur decided matter with 15 minutes to go with a cheeky freekick combination where Sølvi Vatnhamar played Kaj Leo í Bartalsstovu clear for an easy finish to make it 2-0.
Víkingur could have made it 3-0 ten minutes later when they were awarded a penalty after Joseph Bssense had been brought down, but Hans Jørgensen in the B68 goal saved from Atli Gregersen.
(And with that, the “missing percentage” has reached 50% for the league – 4 awarded, 2 missed).
NSÍ Runavík - FC Suðuroy 0-0
After an even first half, NSÍ got the upperhand in the second half, but failed to break down the defensive FC Suðroy approach.
EB/Streymur - TB Tvøroyri 1-1 (0-0)
1-0 Egil á Bø
1-1 Bojan Timic (pen)
EB/Streymur are struggling in the opening rounds and again had to settle for a draw today against the newcomers TB Tvøroyri who picked up their first points of the season with an added-time penalty.
Defender Egil á Bø had brought EB/Streymur in front 10 minutes from the end after a corner, but two minutes into added time, TB were awarded a penalty which Serbian attacking midfielder Bojan Timic equalized on.
Timic seems to thrive at "Margáir" as it was also he who last season scored TB's 11th and crucial goal on a penalty after six minutes of added time when they last season beat EB/Streymur 11-0 in the first division to pip AB Argir for promotion. Had it been 10-0, then AB would have been promoted instead.
On Easter Monday, 9 April, the first round of the cup will be played
