May 19 & 20, 2012:
Round 19 of the premier league "effodeildin":
TB Tvøroyri - HB Tórshavn 4-0 (4-2)
1-0 Bojan Timic
3-0 Gilli Sørensen
4-0 Bojan Timic
4-1 Jákup Slættalíð
4-2 Jógvan Andreas Skeel Nolsøe
TB did it in style when they beat HB for the first time in 21 years.
TB romped to a 3-0 lead at half time, scoring the opening goal through the Serb Bojan Timic in the 5th minute. Timic arrived at TB midway through last season and was a major factor why TB were promoted.
Defender Jákup Slættalíð was then noted for an owngoal in the 18th minute before Gilli Sørensen made it 3-0 directly on free kick after half an hour.
HB hit the post early in the second half, but their challenge quickly faded and instead it was TB who made it 4-0 when Timic got past several players before he found the back of the net.
Although HB reduced the deficit in the 78th and 82nd minute through Jákup Slættalíð and Jógvan Andreas Skeel Nolsøe, TB’s victory was never under any real threat.
HB have now conceded 12 goals in their last three matches (the cup semi-final included), and the question is if HB defensively don’t lack too much to really challenge for the title.
Since the inauguration of their new pitch, TB have won all of their three matches and they will undoubtedly get more points at home and look good for avoiding relegation.
B68 Toftir - EB/Streymur 1-2 (1-1)
0-1 Arnbjørn Hansen
1-1 Christian Høgni Jacobsen
1-2 Leif Niclasen
In-form EB/Streymur bagged another three points against B68 and have now earned 16 points from their last six matches.
EB/Streymur took the lead after 25 minutes through Arnbjørn Hansen, but Christian Høgni Jacobsen restored parity just five minutes later.
B68 were close to taking the lead in the second half with an effort on the crossbar, but instead it was Leif Niclasen who secured EB/Strreymur a narrow victory in the 70th minute.
NSÍ Runavík - B36 Toftir 3-1 (1-0)
1-0 Árni Frederiksberg
2-1 klæmint Olsen
3-1 Árni Frederiksberg
After five defeats in a row, NSÍ have been desperate for points as they were getting more and more isolated at the bottom, but with a massive win over champions B36, NSÍ have made contact to the teams just over the relegation line.
NSÍ hit the post twice before Árni Frederiksberg brought the home team into the lead in the 37th minute.
Twenty minutes through the second half, B36 were back on level terms as Klæmint Olsen headed past his own goalkeeper from a corner.
In previous matches, it’s in the last 20 minutes that NSÍ have lost many of their matches – even if they were leading with more than one goal.
But no so this time as forward Olsen repaired the damage from the first half when he this time scored at the right end to put NSÍ in front again.
And right at the death, Frederiksberg scored his second goal of the afternoon to make the points secure for NSÍ.
Víkingur - KÍ Klaksvík 0-1 (0-0)
0-1 Hjalgrím Elttør
Legendary coach Páll Guðlaugsson who guided the Faroe Islands to their famous win over Austria in 1990 still has a trick or two up his sleeve, having been away from football coaching for a decade before he surprisingly was appointed coach of KÍ this season.
After a slow start to the season, KÍ have really picked up pace and recorded their 4th victory in a row as they beat table toppers Víkingur who the other hand have lost two in a row.
The narrow win for KÍ was just about deserved as they as a whole had the bigger scoring opportunities.
Hjagrím Elttør scored the winning goal in the 76th minute after a fine individual effort.
Víkingur are still playing their matches in neighbouring town Fuglafjørður as they are in the process of shifting their surface to a newer one at their home ground Sarpugerði in Gøta.
FC Suðuroy - ÍF Fuglafjørður 0-6 (0-2)
0-1 Høgni Madsen
0-2 Clayton Soares
0-3 Clayton Soares
0-4 Clayton Soares
0-5 Simon Skibsted
0-6 Simon Skibsted
It is everything but official that FC Suðuroy’s visit in the top flight will only last for one year after taking a 6-0 hammering by ÍF Fuglafjørður. It might say something about ÍF, but is says a lot more about Suðuroy who simply aren’t good enough for the top division.
Høgni Madsen opened the scoring for íF after 10 minutes before Brazilian Clayton Soares scored a hat trick to make it 4-0 (his second hat trick in succesive games). Danish forward Simon Skibsted then scored a brace in the last 10 minutes to finish the rout.
