March 21 & 22, 2015:
Round 04 of the premier division "Effodeildin":

March 21:

FC Suðuroy - B36 Tórshavn 1-3 (0-3)
0-1 Hans Pauli Samuelsen
0-2 Hørður Askham
0-3 Ibrahima Camara
1-3 Palli Augustinussen

Nothing but a walkover was expected between newly promoted FC Suðuroy and champions B36 Tórshavn even if B36 captain Jákup á Borg admitted that they played "primitively", but were effitive in using the strong tailwind in the first half to lead 3-0 at half time.

B36 had already fired a warning shot on the crossbar when they took the lead after a quarter of an hour through Hans Pauli Samuelsen directly from free kick.

B36 doubled their lead 10 minutes later when centre-back Hørður Askham headed home from a corner, and just before the half-hour Senegalese forward Ibrahima Camara made it 3-0 following another corner to keep his record intact of having scored in every game.

Having the wind in their back eased the pressure on FC Suðuroy’s goal in the second half, but were still unable to put any real pressure on B36 although they did get a consolation goal through Palli Augustinussen in the closing stages. However, the goal should have been disallowed because it started with a B36 goal kick where where the ball was taken by the wind and returned into the penalty area where defender Odmar Færø headed away before anybody had touched the ball outside the penalty area, and therefore the goal kick should have been retaken. But neither referee nor players noticed the error.

By then both teams were playing with 10 men as B36 had Hanus Thorleifsson sent off (direct red) after 70 minutes while FC Suðuroy had Jón Krosslá Poulsen sent off (2 yellow) four minutes later.

EB/Streymur - AB ABrgir 0-0

Second stalemate in a row for AB Argir and their fourth draw in four games and the third draw for EB/Streymur who are still in a relegation spot although they themselves have been very satisfied with the start of the campaign.

There were few and it was far between the scoring opportunities throughout the 90 minutes where Leif Niclassen went close for the home team when he rattled the crossbar.

AB had a couple of half chances in the second half but EB/Streymur had the best chance late in the game when Hanus Olsen’s finish from a clear position went narrowly wide of by the post.

March 22:

HB Tórshavn - TB Tvøroyri 0-0

There was little to choose between the two teams in a match with very few scoring opportunities. Maybe HB had an edge in possession, but he hardworking and well organized TB-team gave away nothing and in fact TB were desperately close to taking the lead after a quarter of an hour when Albert Adu steered a cross just wide of the post. Just before that former TB-player Poul Ingason had been close for HB when he fired low into the side-netting.

Apart from that, TB goalkeeper Ivan Stojkovic had only one real save to make.

The second half followed a similar pattern as the first, but in the dying moments HB  - and TB – thought they had scored the winning goal when Fróði Benjaminsen from the byline brilliantly with his heel squared the ball in front of goal where Christian R. Mouristsen slotted home, but only for the referee to disallow it for off side.

With striker Arnbjørn Hansen and winger Pál Mohr Joensen inhured, and Símun Samuelsena and Christian R. Mouritsen starting on the bench, HB don’t seem to have the weapons to penetrate a well organized defence, and if they’ll be to many games without their strongest 11, HB are going to suffer against the other top teams.

NSÍ Runavík - ÍF Fuglafjørður 3-1 (3-1)
1-0 Klæmint Olsen
1-1 Karl Løkin
2-1 Klæmint Olsen
3-1 Jónhard Frederiksberg

Klæmint Olsen scored a brace to take NSÍ to the summit of the table and himself three goals clear on the summit of the top scorer list after 7 goals in 4 games.

Olsen gave NSÍ the lead in the 13th minute but they were cancelled out the minute after when Karl Løkin netted in his first game since his return to ÍF.

However, the equalizer was also short-lived as ÍF were leading 3-1 ten minutes later when first Olsen headed home in the 23rd minute before he a couple of minutes later set up Jónhard Frederiksberg to make it 3-1 and virtually seal victory.

Víkingur - KÍ klaksvík 3-3 (0-2)
0-1 Henry Heinesen (pen)
0-2 Páll Klettskarð
1-2 Andreas Lava Olsen
2-2 Súni Olsen (pen)
2-3 Páll Klettskarð
3-3 Owngoal (Mayowa Oladele Alli)

Having led 2-0 at halftime through goals from Henry Heinsen and Páll Klettskarð in the 11th and 34th minute, Víkingur started a comeback five minutes through the second half with a header from Andreas Lava Olsen.

Víkingur’s chances of a successful comeback increased in the 58th minute when KÍ’s Danish centre-back Jonas Flindt Rasmussen was sent off after a second bookable offense – an off the ball incident – and within seven minutes Víkingur had equalized through a Súni Olsen penalty.

However, with 10 against 11 KÍ regained their lead with a header from Klettskarð with 10 minutes remaining, but having withstood the heavy pressure from Víkingur during those minutes, US defender Mayowa Oladele Alli headed a cross past his own goalkeeper to make it 3-3 in the 90th minute.
