Round 14 of the premier division "Effodeildin":

B36 Tórshavn - HB Tórshavn 1-1  (1-1)
1-0 Lukasz Cieslewicz
1-1 Arnbjørn Hansen

In the end a draw in the Tórshavn Derby seemed just after B36 had the best opportunities in the first half while HB dominated in the second half.

Ibrahima Camara's pace gave HB’s defenders some problems, and other times it was the free-flowing combinations with Lukasz Cieslewicz as the pivotal point that caused HB problems.  Twice HB survived close scares when B36 made their typical cut-back pass, but two minutes before the half-time whistle, Hans Pauli Samuelsen on the left made the cut-back to Cieslewicz who this time fired low from close range to give B36 a deserved half-time the lead.

But HB were best for most of the second half and equalized on the hour-mark with a well placed header from Arnbjørn Hansen after a fine cross from Bartal Wardum from the right. Hansen had chances to score both before and after, but Tórður Thomsen stood firm in the B36 goal. B36 had a couples of chances at the other end as well, and Teitur Gestsson had parry Róaldur Jakobsen's shot after he had brilliantly been set up by Cieslewicz's back-heel.

Both team will be content with the draw as they got closer to leaders NSÍ Runavík who were defeated by Víkingur.

Next Sunday HB take on leaders NSÍ Runavík. - But before that, on Thursday, the same teams play the second leg of the cup semifinal where the visitors lead 1-0 from the first leg.

NSÍ Runavík - Víkingur 2-4 (0-1)
0-1 Heðin Hansen
1-1 Magnus Olsen
1-2 Andreas Lava Olsen
1-3 Andreas Lava Olsen
2-3 Árni Frederiksberg
2-4 Andreas Lava Olsen

Andreas Lava Olsen scored a second half hat-trick as Víkingur inflicted leaders NSÍ with their first home-defeat of the season.

The visitors took the lead 20 minutes through the second half with a terrific shot from Heðin Hansen, but NSÍ levelled the match against the run of play 20 minutes through the second half.

However, it lasted just a minute as Lava Olsen regained the lead for Víkingur who had to play the last 20 minutes for the match with 10 men as centre-back Atli Gregersen was sent off for a second bookable offence – for receiving a goal-kick inside his own penalty area which the referee deemed to be unsportsmanlike conduct and time-wasting. 

But it mattered little today as Lava Olsen score again to make it 3-1 six minutes later, and although NSÍ pulled a goal back on a direct deflected free kick from Árni Frederiksberg four minutes before the end of normal time, the "Lava-man" restored Víkingur two-goal cushion the minute after to complete his second hat-trick of the season.

ÍF Fuglafjørður - TB Tvøroyri 2-0 (1-0)
1-0 Fritleif í Lambanum
2-0 Adeshina Lawal

ÍF took a 3rd minute lead through Fritleif í Lambanum who scored on a rebound after Clayton Soares’ shot had been blocked.

ÍF dominated for long periods of the match but as a whole host of opportunities were squandered, the match lived on until Adeshima Lawal sealed the win in added time.

FC Suðuroy - EB/Streymur 3-2 (3-0)
1-0 Jón Krosslá Poulsen
2-0 Owngoal (Ragnar B. Danielsen)
3-0 Mamuka Toronjadze
3-1 Marni Djurhuus
3-2 Leif Niclasen

With a tailwind in the first half FC Suðuroy scored three times from the 10th to the 38th minute to lead 3-0 before EB/Streymur responded with two goals in the 53rd and the 75th minute – as they had the tailwind now – to set up an exciting last quarter of an hour.

FC Suðuroy held out to increase the gap to AB Argir in 9th place to 5 points and can therefore maybe afford to draw next Sunday when they take on AB in the massive relegation-clash. A win for Suðuroy on the other hand would take the 8 points clear of the drop line.

AB Argir - KÍ Klaksvík 0-4 (0-3)
0-1 Heðin Klakstein
0-2 Jóannes Bjartalíð
0-3 Evrard Blé
0-4 Kenan Hajdarevic

AB’s form is going from bad to worse at the moment and they just don’t seem like a team that will be able to climb out of the relegation zone.

KÍ – winning their first away match of the season – romped to a 3-0 lead at half-time against an appalling and dejected-looking AB side that had nothing to offer.  Around the hour-mark Bosnian Kenan Hajdarevic made it 4-0 to the visitors.

Should AB lose away to FC Suðuroy next Sunday, their fait appears to be sealed already as they will trail their opponents by 8 points then with only 11 matches remaining.
