Round 05 of the premier division "Effodeildin":
HB Tórshavn - NSÍ Runavík 4-1 (2-0)
1-0 Owngoal (Klæmint Olsen)
2-0 Fróði Benjaminsen
2-1 Magnus Olsen
3-1 Símun Samuelsen
4-1 Andrew av Fløtum
Having dominated the first half and leading 2-0 and having an early second-half goal disallowed, HB suddenly came under intense pressure and were lucky not to concede the equalizer, before they decided the match with two goals in the last 10 minutes.
But nothing indicated an exciting second half as NSÍ had absolutely nothing to offer in the first half where HB had their first real chance after some 20 minutes where NSÍ goalkeeper Andras Gango caught out Heini Vatnsdal’s lob after he had been played clear.
HB took the lead just before the half-hour from a corner where NSÍ forward – and league top scorer - Klæmint Olsen was credited for an owngoal, under pressure from HB’s strong set-piece team.
HB doubled their lead within three minutes when Fróði Benjaminsen turned inside the penalty area and fired low and out of reach for Gango.
Vatnsdal was close again towards the end of the half, but was denied by the upright.
HB seemed to have made it 3-0 early in the second half from a corner, but the referee disallowed Rógvi Holm’s header as he had apparently spotted an infringement.
A few minutes later, Vatnsdal was about to get clear again but was brought down halfway on the NSÍ half by goalkeeper Gango who only received a yellow car as he wasn’t quite the last man in defence. But it was close to that other colour.
However, few minutes later only a superb flying save from HB goalkeeper Teitur Gestsson, where he punched the ball onto the post, denied Árni Frederiksberg’s curling effort from outside the penalty area.
It spurred NSÍ on, however, and they pulled a goal back just moments later following a long throw-in where Magnus Olsen latched on to a loose ball in the penalty area in the 54th minute.
HB were under intense pressure the next period and an equalizer was looming. However, the ball stayed out; sometimes going just wide and sometimes stopped by Gestsson who made several top drawer saves.
Eventually, HB started to threaten on the counters, and Vatnsdal had his header saved by the crossbar on 80 minutes before Símun Samuelsen made the points safe in the 83rd minute in his first game for HB since he got injured in August.
HB went on to make it 4-1 just before the end of normal time with a beautiful goal where midfielder Tróndur Jensen’s well timed pass released right back René Joensen down the right hand flank before he from the by-line made a low cross in from of goal to Andrew av Fløtum to make the easy tap-in.
Skála - Víkingur 1-1 (0-1)
0-1 Súni Olsen (pen)
1-1 Brian Jacobsen
Skála scraped up another point against Víkingur who will face many of the better teams in the coming rounds, and at the moment, Víkinur look anything but a title contender as they proclaimed ahead of the season.
Súni Olsen gave Víkingur the lead just before half-time on a penalty as he sent Russian goalkeeper Mark Ryutin to one side and the ball to the other side.
However, Skála equalized just after the hour-mark from a corner where Brian Jacobsen scored with an incredible scissors kick into the top corner.
B68 Toftir - B36 Tórshavn 2-4 (1-3)
1-0 Óli Olsen
1-1 Hørður Askham
1-2 Lukasz Cieslewicz
1-3 Jákup á Borg (pen)
1-4 Hørður Askham
2-4 Óli Olsen
A crazy start to the game where B68 took the lead in the first minute through Óli Olsen, but where central defender Hørður Askham restored parity in the third minute following a corner.
It became an uphill struggle for B68 when the had Danish centre back Mads Rosenberg sent off for using the emergency break after 22 minutes, and the advantage became evident just three minute later when Lukasz Cieslewicz brought the visitors in front.
Jákup á Borg then made it 3-1 on a penalty to score his 140th goal in the top league to close in on his former team-mate and record holder, retired John Petersen who scored 146 goals.
Askham proved his set-peace threat again with a quarter of an hour remaining to make it 4-1 as he poked in from a corner before Olsen towards the end scored again for B68 to make it 4-2.
KÍ Klaksvík - AB Agir 4-1 (2-0)
1-0 Sørmundur Kalsø
2-0 Hjalgrím Elttør
3-0 Rodrigo Silva
4-0 Páll Klettskarð
4-1 Dion Splidt
After two losses in a row, KÍ got back to winning way by avenges with a 4-1 defeat of AB Argir who are in free fall after their opening wing over Víkingur and are under pressure to get something from their next game on Monday away to B68 Toftir in order not to be dragged into that tricky relegation abyss.
AB held for 37 minutes before first Sørmundur Kalsø made it 1-0 following a corner and then Hjalgrím Elttør doubled the lead four minutes later with a header.
And four minutes after the break, it was Brazilian Rodrigo Silva who made it 3-0 with another header.
Striker Páll Klettskarð had returned from injury to make it 4-0 after 65 minutes, just before he was substituted.
Dion Splidt scored a consolation goal for AB with a quarter of an hour remaining.
ÍF Fuglafjørður - EB/streymur 3-0 (0-0)
1-0 Leivur Joensen
2-0 (Owngoal) Marni Djurhuus
3-0 Ari Ellingsgaard
After deadlock during the first five quarters of an hour, ÍF scored three times in the last quarter to climb to 4th in the table, with the same number of points as NSÍ and KÍ, but two points adrift of HB and B36 in the first two positions.
Leivur Joensen scored the opener directly on free kick, before Dájal á Lakjuni's shot with seven minutes remaining deflected off Marni Djurhuus's leg to credit him for an owngoal, as it deceived the goalkeeper, and just two minutes later Ari Ellingsgaard cemented ÍF’s victory as he was played clear by Clayton Soares.
