Round 25 of the premier division "Effodeildin":
AB Argir - HB Tórshavn 1-3 (1-0)
1-0 Jobin Drangastein
1-1 Andrew av Fløtum
1-2 Andrew av Fløtum
1-3 Andrew av Fløtum
After AB had started strongly in the first five minutes of the game, HB took over for the next period and had a couple of half-chances before the match evened out again, and after 20 minutes AB took the lead from a corner where Dmitrije Jankovic headed back across to Jobin Drangastein who headed in.
HB started creating chances again, but it was close but no cigar for the rest of the half. As B36 Tórshavn had taken the lead against EB/Streymur, it meant that the title at this stage was going to B36.
That was the status for a long period through the second half as HB just couldn’t get the ball over the goalline although creating a host of scoring opportunities, where Jóan Símun Edmundsson once and Alex dos Santos twice hit the crossbar.
But after 20 minutes HB finally succeeded when Andrew av Fløtum got the ball on the right hand side of the penalty area following an AB corner, and from an acute angle equalized to at least keep the title race open for another round.
HB continued to create chances but squandered a couple before they made one count five minutes later after a long kick out from goalkeeper Teitur Gestsson to Jóan Símun Edmundsson who found Santos who again played av Fløtum clear on the left hand side where he finished clinically at the near post from an acute angle.
AB rarely threatened during the second half, and five minutes before the end of normal time av Fløtum completed his hat trick from a similar position as the previous goal to seal the 3-1 win for HB who will need already relegated B68 to get at draw in the penultimate round against B36, if HB are to keep the title race open to the last day of the competition where they play B36 who are 4 points clear.
B36 Tórshavn - EB/Streymur 1-0 (1-0)
1-0 Lukasz Cieslewicz
B36 dominated from start to finish against an EB/Streymur team that understandable doesn’t seem to have the desire for football following the loss of a team-mate.
After B36 had wasted a number of scoring opportunities, the visitors should have taken the lead after 20 minutes when Arnbjørn Hansen was played clear but failed to beat B36 goalkeeper Tórður Thomsen who parried with his leg. How would a goal for EB/Streymur have altered the course of the championship…?
Anyway, B36 kept dominating – and kept wasting scoring opportunities, but after 35 minutes Lukasz Cieslewicz settled B36 nerves after a solo effort where he got past three defenders before finding the back of the net.
The story was the same in the second half, and not until the very end did EB/Streymur finally managed to put some pressure on the B36 defence which held out, however.
After the Euro qualifiers, B36 visit already relegated B68 Toftir in the penultimate round of the championship, and a win for B36 would mean that the title is theirs. A draw will set up a finale on the last day of competition where B36 entertain HB – providing that HB beat NSÍ Runavík who are no walkovers. But it would be a major surprise should B36 not beat B68.
Víkingur - ÍF Fuglafjørður 5-0 (4-0)
1-0 Hallur Hansson
2-0 Súni Olsen
3-0 Hallur Hansson
4-0 Sølvi Vatnhamar
5-0 Hallur Hansson
It was one-way traffic between no 3 and no 7 where Hallur Hansson scored a hat trick. He opened the scoring within two minutes before Súni Olsen doubled the lead directly on free kick in the 8th minutes.
Sølvi Vatnhamar, who finally was elected for the national team in the coming qualifiers, made it 4-0 five minutes before half time. Hansson then sealed the win with the completion of his hat trick midway through the second half.
NSÍ Runavík - KÍ Klaksvík 2-0 (1-0)
1-0 Owngoal (Páll Klettskarð)
2-0 Klæmint Olsen
Klæmint Olsen is gunning to surpass the scoring record of 24 goals in a season held by Uni Arge and Súni Fríði Barbá, and with two goals today, Olsen needs another three goals in the last two rounds to surpass those two.
Well, that was at least what Olsen thought, because his opening goal directly from free kick after half an hour was deflected off the wall and was therefore noted as a Páll Klettskarð owngoal.
But nothing was wrong with Olsen’s goal to 2-0 which he headed in after a cross from Andy Olsen.
That means Klæmint will have to score 4 times in the last two games against HB Tórshavn (a) and ÍF Fuglafjørður (h) to take the scoring record.
The victory means that NSÍ go 3 points clear of EB/Streymur in the race for the 4th place in the table which gives access to the Europa League nest season, and 4 points clear of KÍ Klaksvík.
Skála - B68 Toftir 1-1 (0-1)
0-1 Evrard Blé
1-1 Jákup Johansen
For B68 the chance to avoid relegation was merely mathematical, and 1-1 against the other relegated team was a fitting result, could be said.
Ivorian Evrard Blé gave B68 the lead after 10 minutes while Jákp Johansen equalized with five minutes of the start of the second half.
The table doesn’t lye about the abilities of B68 and Skála as they were clearly the weakest team in the competition.
