July 26 to 29, 2015:
Round 18 of the premier division "Effodeildin":

July 26:

Víkingur - TB Tvøroyri 7-2
1-0 Heðin Hansen
2-0 Finnur Justinussen
2-1 Patrik Johannesen
3-1 Finnur Justinussen
4-1 Hanus Jacobsen
5-1 Magnus Jarnskor
5-2 Ragnar Tausen
6-2 Sølvi Vatnhamar
7-2 Sølvi Vatnhamar

If anyone thought TB were back in the match when Patrick Johannesen on the hour-mark reduced the deficit to just one goal, they were very mistaken as Víkingur restored the two-goal cushion within a couple of minutes to go on to win 7-2.  

July 27:

EB/Streymur - KÍ Klaksvík 4-4 (2-4)
1-0 Jan á Høgaryggi
1-1 Jóannes Bjartalíð
2-1 Heðin Klaksteín
3-1 Jóannes Bjartalíð
4-1 Hjalgrím Elttør
4-2 Jan á Høaryggi
4-3 Brian Olsen
4-4 Leif Niclasen

EB/Streymur come back from three goals down to draw 4-4 with KÍ Klaksvík

Although the home-team took the lead after 10 minutes, the visitors romped to a 4-1 lead and seemed assured of victory when Hjalgrím Elttør had scored KÍ’s fourth a minute before half-time. 

Although Jan á Høgaryggi still had time to pull a goal back on the stroke of half-time, not even the super optimistic EB/Streymur supporters would have dreamed of points in this match, but that changed when midfielder Brian Olsen decreased the deficit to just a single goal 25 minutes through the second half. 

And with seven minutes remaining of normal time, Niels Pauli Danielsen’s played substitute Leif Niclasen clear to grab the equalizer. 

The match was played at Skála as EB/Streymur’s normal home pitch at Margáir is having its surface shifted with a new one. And although EB/Streymur have a brand new pitch ready at Eiði, they are not allowed to use it because of bureaucracy - bureauCRAZY? - which dictates that the pitch must have 300 seats available, which it doesn’t have yet. 

AB Argir - NSÍ Runavík 1-2 (1-2)
0-1 Jann Martin Mortensen
0-2 Jann Martin Mortensen
1-2 Tróndur Jensen

NSÍ took the lead from a corner after only 7 minutes where a smart combination caught the AB defence sleeping and Jann Martin Mortensen was left clear to fire the ball into the back of the net.

Defence was a fault again midway through the half when Mortensen got clear to double NSÍ’s lead. 

AB coach Sámal Erik Hentze made some quick substitutions which eventually improved his team and four minutes before half-time new arrival Tróndur Jensen was on place to pull a goal back and few moments later, Kristin R. Mouritsen should have scored the equalizer as he was completely clear, but squandered the opportunity. 

AB also had chances in the second half, but so did NSÍ who just about had the edge overall.  

July 28:

B36 Tórshavn - ÍF Fuglafjørður 4-0 (3-0)
1-0 Róaldur Jakobsen
2-0 Philip Lund
3-0 Lukasz Cieslewicz
4-0 Philip Lund

B36’s new striker Philip Lund made a dream debut as he scored a brace and netted his first goal after only 5 minutes. But that was in fact B36’s second goal of the match as they had taken the lead on a Róaldur Jakobsen free kick in the first minute – after Lund had been fouled just outside the area.

Lukasz Cieslewicz then linked up with Hans Pauli Samuelsen before curling the ball into the far side of the goal in the 34th minute, and then turned provider for Lund to score his second goal of the day five minutes through the second half. 

July 29

HB Tórshavn - FC Suðuroy 0-0

HB drop 8 points behind pacesetters B36 and effectively wave goodbye to the title after stalemate with FC Suðuroy who move 6 points clear of the relegation zone with nine rounds to go.

It was also a well-deserved point for Suðuroy who had the better of the chances although FC Suðuroy goalkeeper Rani N. Johannessen had to make a magnificent save to tip over from Heini Vatnsdal’s header in the dying minutes after 10-men HB had finally managed to put a sustainable pressure on the visitors in the final 10 minutes of the game. 

HB had been reduced to 10 when right back Jógvan Rói Davidsen, maybe unintentionally, but definitely clipped the heel of Jón Krosslá Poulsen who was clear on goal after just a minute of the second half. Poulsen took the penalty himself, but Teitur Gestsson dived to his left and save. Wasn´t there a saying that the fouled player should not take the penalty himself…?

To make it all worse for HB, forward Arnbjørn Hansen was stretchered off within 10 minutes of the game with what appeared to be a serious injury to the knee-cap, and will likely be out for the season – where he actually has been for the majority of it.

Update: The injury seems not have been as severe as first anticipated, and the news is that Hansen's injury will be evaluated again in two weeks and the hope is he will return to action this season.
