Round 06 of the premier division "Effodeildin":

HB Tórshavn - Víkingur 2-2 (1-0)
1-0 Kristin R. Mouritsen
2-0 René S. Joensen
2-1 Finnur Joensen
2-2 Finnur Joensen

HB’s problems of closing games continued as they this time threw away a 2-0 lead to draw 2-2 in the end.

The first half had been a very tactical affair in turmoil for the most of the 45 minutes, but 4 seconds before the 45- minute mark, HB took the lead just moments after Víkingur goalkeeper Geza Turi had kept HB at bay with an excellent save from Fróði Benjaminsen’s acrobatic effort from close range, but the keeper could do nothing as Krisitin R. Mouritsen had the goal at his mercy on the stroke of half-time after the square ball from Heini Vatnsdal from the right hand side.

HB doubled their lead within 10 minutes of the second half as René S. Joensen got hold of Heini Vatnsdal’s through-ball to sneak it behind Turi.

HB were playing better at this stage, but just as in every other game of the season so far, HB are most vulnerable when they look most comfortable, and 20 minutes through the second half Víkingur took full advantage of an uncharacteristic mistake from centre-back Johan Troest Davidsen who even slipped when he had made up for his initial mistake to allow striker Finnur Justinussen to get clear to fire low into the bottom far corner.

Víkingur sensed an equalizer, and it came with a quarter of an hour remaining, when Justinussen’s strike from inside the penalty area again found the back of the net.

Both teams went close in the dying minutes, but 2-2 was maybe a just result in the end.

ÍF Fuglafjørður - B36 Tórshavn 2-5 (0-3)
0-1 Róaldur Jakobsen
0-2 Róaldur Jakobsen
0-3 Jákup á Borg
0-4 Rasmus Dan Sørensen
1-4 Bartal Eliasen
2-4 Kristoffur Jakobsen
2-5 Adeshina Lawal

B36 romped to a 3-0 lead at half-time thanks to a brace from Róaldur Jacobsen inside the first 10 minutes of the match and the third coming 10 minutes before the break from a spectacular hook from Jákup á Borg who looks really determined to take that all-time scoring record in the top division where he trails retired John Petersen by five goals.

Rasmus Dan Sørensen made it 4-0 early in the second half before ÍF finally woke up, and although they scored twice around the hour-mark, the fight-back was never going to happen, and indeed, in stoppage time Adeshina Lawal made it 5-2 for B36 against 10-men ÍF who had Bogi R. Petersen sent off in the 84th minute – for an infringement against Lawal.

EB/Streymur - NSÍ Runavík 0-0 (0-0)
The first goalless draw of the season, although it could easily have been different as both teams hit the woodwork – NSÍ several times and maybe had a small upper hand over the 90 minutes.

B68 Toftir - AB Argir 3-2 (0-0)
1-0 Jóhan Dávur Højgaard
2-0 Óli Olsen
2-1 Sorin Anghel
3-1 Andrias á Líknagøtu
3-2 Sorin Anghel

AB Argir appointed former assistant coach Oddbjørn Joensen as new head coach for Bill McLeod Jacobsen who quit a week ago, and after yet another loss today for AB, Joensen’s job for next many weeks looks to be to try to guide his team away from the relegation zone as AB’s upcoming matches are against HB (h), EB/Streymur (a) and ÍF (a), and as B68 in the same period have Skála and KÍ at home, AB could be in deep problems.

After a goalless first half, B68 took the lead through Jóhan Dávur Højgaard early in the second half before Óli Olsen doubled the advantage with 12 minutes remaining of normal time.

Sorin Anghel pulled a goal back for AB in the 88th minute to set up a nervy wait for the home crowd, but the relief came in the 91st minute when Andrias á Líknagøtu made it 3-1 and then it mattered little when Anghel scored again to make it 3-1 in the 93rd minute.

Currently AB and B68 are equal on points in 8th and 9th place in the table.

KÍ Klaksvík - Skála 1-0 (0-0)
1-0 Rodrigo Silva

The first goalless draw of the season, although it could easily have been different as both teams hit the woodwork – NSÍ several times and maybe had a small upper hand over the 90 minutes.

For a third time in succession, Skála weren’t far for getting another draw as they seemed to have improved defensively as their inexperienced players mature.

However, KÍ still was the better team today, although the two teams were only separated by Brazilian forward Rodrigo Silva’s goal four minutes after the break as he was set up by Hjalggrím Elttør.
