April 19 & 21, 2013:
Round 06 of the premier division "Effodeildin":

April 19

AB Argir – NSÍ Runavík 2-3 (1-1)
1-0 Sorin Anghel
1-1 Árni Frederiksberg
2-1 Rógvi Poulsen
2-2 Klæmint Olsen (pen)
2-3 Klæmint Olsen

AB Argir were denied their first point of the season as NSÍ Runavík came from behind twice to clinch a last gasp victory.

The home team started well and took the lead through Sorin Anghel after a quarter of an hour.

Midway through the half, NSÍ fired a warning shot on the upright before Árni Frederiksberg in the 37th minute levelled the match after some ping-pong in the penalty area. 

AB regained the lead in the 25 minutes through the second half when Rógvi Poulsen slotted home 12 minutes after coming off the bench for his first appearance of the season, having been sidelined through injury.

But the lead was short-lives as NSÍ were awarded a penalty – a controversial one - a couple of minutes later which Klæmint Olsen safely converted.

And almost four minutes into added time, Olsen clinched victory for NSÍ with a header at the far post from a corner.

In the previous round, NSÍ also scored the winner against B36 in added time, but in the round before that NSÍ lost their victory in added time against 07 Vestur.

Incredibly, AB’s already endless injury list grew from 10 to 12 as both Jobin Drangastein and Gert Drangastein had to be substituted because of injury.

HB Tórshavn - Víkingur 3-0 (2-0)
1-0 Heini Vatnsdal
2-0 Christian Mouritsen
3-0 Andrew av Fløtum

HB played their best match of the season as they comfortably beat Víkingur who had little to offer, but maybe the score-line is flattering HB, because if Víkingur had scored on two of their best opportunities, the result could maybe have been another one. But goals decide football matches, the saying goes.

And HB got the first goal after some twenty minutes from a corner where Heini Vatnsdal headed home, but where question marks will be set to Víkingur’s defence.

HB had been the better team before the goal and continued to be in control as they kept Víkingur well away from the penalty area, but five minutes before half time, Víkingur should have equalized when left back Hanus Jacobsen broke into the penalty area and chose to stay on his legs where others would have fallen, but clear with Teitur Gestsson in the HB goal, the golden opportunity was wasted as the goalkeeper made an incredible save to deny Víkingur.

Instead it was HB who doubled their lead on the stroke of half time as Christian R. Mouritsen cut inside and went across half the penalty area before he fired the ball into the back of the net.

Víkingur could have been back in the game a few minutes after the restart when Kaj Leo í Bartalsstovu took advantage of a slip-up in the HB defence to get clear, but the weak shot was saved off the line onto the post and out.

Instead HB decided matters after 55 minutes when Andrew av Fløtum scored with a powerful shot from the edge of the penalty.

With about a quarter of an hour, Víkingur goalkeeper Geza Turi was given a straight red card in connection with a corner. Apparently the referee had spotted something that was not very clear from the terraces, but the goalkeeper had received a couple of bumps from HB-challenges in the first half, so whether it was delayed action from that is unclear.

Instead of going for a bigger win, HB chose to save their legs for Thursday’s top match against KÍ Klaksvík who trail HB by two points. 

ÍF Fuglafjørður - KÍ Klaksvík 3-3 (0-2)
0-1 Álvur Christiansen
0-2 Páll Klettskarð
0-3 Páll Klettskarð
1-3 Clayton Soares
2-3 Clayton Soares
3-3 Øssur Dalbúð (pen)

When KÍ made it 3-0 10 minutes through the second half, ÍF looked dead and buried, but with three goals in 15 minutes, ÍF made an incredible comeback, and when KÍ had a man sent off with a quarter of an hour remaining, ÍF were close to taking the victory.
KÍ took the lead through Álvur Christiansen after 11 minutes, and although ÍF was the better team for the rest of the half, it was KÍ who doubled their lead with a goal from Páll Klettskarð shortly before half time.

And when Klettskarð scored his second goal of the match ten minutes after the interval, It looked like game over.

But ÍF got a glimmer of hope when Clayton Soares pulled goal back five minutes later directly on free kick (a harshly awarded), and further ten minutes later, Soares decreased the deficit even more.

And with a quarter of an hour remaining, Øssur Dalbúð equalized from the penalty spot, after the referee deemed that Soares had been brought down, but again the referee probably got it wrong.

And just a minute later, defender Jógvan Isaksen was sent off for KÍ, as he had brought down Soares.

But KÍ managed to hang on to the draw with 10 men. 

EB/Streymur - TB Tvøroyri 2-2 (1-1)
1-0 Leif Niclasen
1-1 Rógvi Joensen
2-1 Gunnar Zachariasen
2-2 Poul Ingason

With the many departures and retirements, champions EB/Streymur were never going to be the team they were last season, and with striker Arnbjørn Hansen sidelined through injury, most teams will fancy their chances for at least a draw against them, also TB who before today’s match were a point ahead of EB/Streymur and still are after 17 year old Poul Ingason grabbed an equalizer for 2-2 with a header with 12 minutes remaining of normal time. 

EB/Streymur had taken an early lead when left back Leif Niclasen went forward and across the penalty area before he found the back of the net, but after EB/Streymur had hit the woodwork midway through the first half, TB equalized just before half time through Rógvi Joensen from the edge of the penalty area. 

Within ten minutes of the second half, Gunnar Nielsen had brought EB/Streymur back in front, but it wasn’t enough for three points as Ingason salvaged a point for TB, who are placed seven in the table, but only a point above the relegation line, however.

But when TB on Thursday take on ÍF Fuglafjørður, they will be without talented goalscorer Ingason who got two yellow cards after his equalizer and therefore will serve a suspension.

07 Vestur - B36 Tórshavn 0-3 (0-1)
0-1 Adeshina Lawal (pen)
0-2 Rasmus Dan Sørensen
0-3 Høgni Eysturoy

B36 had both forwards Lukasz Cieslewicz and Adeshina Lawal and also full back Høgni Eysturoy back from injury, and that made an immediate impact on their team who has been suffering since their promising start to the season.

Laval put B36 in front on penalty five minutes before the break – after a foul on himself.

The task became easier for B36 midway through the second half when Ivorian defender Tehé Aristide was sent off, and in the last 10 minutes of the game, Rasmus Dan sørensen and Høgni Eysturoy made it 2 and 3-0 for the visitors.
