Round 09 of the premier division "Effodeildin":
HB Tórshavn - Skála 2-0 (1-0)
1-0 Pál Mohr Joensen
2-0 Fróði Benjaminsen
There was little to choose between the two sites from each end of the table, but HB was the more efficient of them.
During the first 25 minutes of the match, it was Skála who had the best scoring opportunity through Jákup Johansen whose shot was blocked to a corner.
HB then rattled the crossbar from a corner before they took the lead after 27 minutes through left back Pál Mohr Joensen who showed his good dribbling capabilities as he broke into the penalty area and scored with a deflected shot that wrong-footed the Russian Skála goalkeeper Mark Ryutin.
Ryutin was tested again shortly before half-time, and this time he won the duel as he saved from Kristin R. Mouritsen who had been played through by Andrew av Fløtum.-
Skála started the second half very brightly and in one attempt a last ditch tackle from a defender prevented the equalizer, and later goalkeeper Teitur Gestsson blocked a shot from Teitur R. Joensen that was ever so close to go in at the near post, and from the following corner, Pætur Dam Jacobsen headed narrowly over.
Instead it was HB who virtually decided the match with a quarter of an hour remaining, when Fróði Benjaminsen headed home at the far post from Christian R. Mouritsen’s corner.
EB/Streymur - Víkingur 2-3 (1-2)
0-1 Heðin Hansen
0-2 Finnur Justinussen
1-2 Pól Jóhannus Justinussen
2-2 Arnbjørn Hansen
2-3 Hans Jørgen Djurhuus
EB/Streymur had done the hard work as they had fought back from 2-0 down to equalize midway through the second half, but the joy last only for six minutes as Hans Jørgen Djurhuus secured Víkingur the three points.
Víkingur had been the better team during the first half and took the lead after 20 minutes when Súni Olsen made the cross to Heðin Hansen who scored in off the crossbar from an acute angle.
The visitors doubled their lead a quarter of an hour later when Finnur Justinussen steered in from Olsen’s free kick.
EB/Streymur were given a lifeline on the stroke of half time when Pól Jóhannus Justinussen met Rógvi E. Nielsen’s cross with a well placed header and 20 minutes through the second half, Arnbjørn Hansen tapped in from Niels Pauli Danielsen’s deflected pass to equalize.
But it was to no avail, as Hans Jørgen Djurhuus six minutes later powered the ball into the top corner to snatch victory for Víkingur.
The two sides meet again on Wednesday where Víkingur have home advantage in the first leg of the semi-final of the cup competition.

4-0 Hákun Edmundsson
4-1 Páll Klettskarð

B68 went berserk – well helped by poor defending from KÍ – in the opening five minutes to take a 2-0 lead with the same recipe where Andrias á Líknargøtu was played clear to score a brace.
It was deja vu in the second half as B68 increased to 4-0 in the opening five minutes through Óli Olsen and Hákun Edmundsson.
KÍ finally pulled a goal back around the hour-mark through Páll Klettskarð following a corner combination, but Olsen increased to 5-1 again with a quarter of an hour remaining before KÍ scored twice - the second scored with 10 men as midfielder Tórður Justesen had been sent off.
ÍF Fuglafjørður - AB Argir 1-4 (1-1)
1-0 Owngoal (Dmitrije Jankovic)
1-1 Sorin Anghel
1-2 Sorin Anghel
1-3 Sorin Anghel
1-4 Jóan Símun Edmundsson
The lead came after a fine attack where it however in the end was Dmitrije Jankovic who turned a cross behind his own goalkeeper.
But Sorin Anghel restored parity just three minutes later, scoring from the rebound as Jákup Mikkelsen had saved the initial effort.
Anghel then decided matters with two quick goals with a quarter of an hour remaining before Jóan Símun Edmundsson made it 4-1 as he returned to action after weeks sidelined through injury.
NSÍ Runavík - B36 Tórshavn 0-1 (0-1)
0-1 Adeshia Lawal
B36 had the luck on their side as they were outplayed in the second half where NSÍ hit the woodwork several times – in one occasion both post were his in the same shot.
But B36 had scored the winning goal towards the end of the first half when Nigerian forward Adeshina Lawal took full advantage of a mistake in defence to surge against goal and sneak in between two defenders to fire the ball into the back of the net.
