August 02 & 03, 2015:
Round 19 of the premier division "Effodeildin":

August 02:

HB Tórshavn - TB Tvøroyri 2-2 (0-1)
0-1 Owngoal (Fróði Benjaminsen)
1-1 Fróði Benjaminsen
1-2 Teitur Justinussen
2-2 Owngoal (Teitur J. Olsen)

Although HB had the majority of possession in the first half, they rarely really threatened the TB goal. TB on the other hand were rare guests in the HB penalty area, but still managed to take the lead after 35 minutes from a HB owngoal following a corner that came back across goal where Fróði Benjaminsen steered the ball behind his own goalkeeper.

HB looked more threatening in the first quarter of an hour of the second half where Adrian Justinussen and Poul Ingason tested TB goalkeeper Ivan Stojkovic while Fróði Benjaminsen tested the crossbar.

The pressure eventually eased again, but 12 minutes from time HB finally managed to make an opportunity count when Christian R. Mouritsen’s through-ball released Ingason who rounded the goalkeeper, but as the angle became too tight, he turned right and then made a cross in front of goal where Benjaminsen headed home to repair the damage from the first half. 

But the joy for HB quickly turned to despair as TB regained the lead four minutes later when left back Alex dos Santos and goalkeeper Teitur Gestsson made a meal of the situation and allowed Teitur Justinussen to steal the ball and fire it into the back of the net. 

However, HB managed to get a last gasp equalizer from a corner where TB's Teitur J. Olsen was recorded for an owngoal. .

Víkingur - KÍ Klaksvík 1-1 (0-1)
0-1 Henry Heinsesen
1-1 Hanus Jacobsen

It was an expensive draw for Víkingur who drop 5 points behind tabletoppers B36 Tórshavn.

KÍ took the lead shortly before half-time when Heðin Heinesen set up Henry Heinesen for the goal. 

Víkingur equalized 10 minutes after the break when Hanus Jacobsen chested down before volleying the ball into the back of the net.

EB/Streymur - AB Argir 0-4 (0-0)
0-1 Dion Splidt
0-2 Jógvan Andrias Skeel Nolsøe
0-3 Kristin R. Mouritsen
0-4 Jobin Drangastein

AB recorded their first victory of the season which takes them within three points of the crucial 8th place which is currently occupied by FC Suðuroy. 

AB was the better team throughout the match but it took an hour until they penetrated EB/Streymur’s defence through Dion Splidt before the floodgates opened. 

B36 Tórshavn - FC Suðuroy 1-0 (1-0)
1-0 Høgni Eysturoy

Høgni Eysturoy’s first-minute goal was the difference in an otherwise even match, where B36 had a slight edge.

August 03:

NSÍ Runavík - ÍF Fuglafjørður 5-1 (4-0)
1-0 Pól Jóhannus Justinussen
2-0 Pól Jóhannus Justinussen
3-0 Klæmint Olsen
4-0 Jens Olsen
5-0 Pól Jóhannus Justinussen
5-1 Karl Løkin

Having survived the first 20 minutes, NSÍ started the unslaught and scored four times before the half time whistle. 

Pól Jóhannus Justinussen started the rout with a header, and in eight minutes before half time, they scored the other three, Justinussen adding a second before top scorer Klæmint Olsen and Jens Joensen made it 3-0 and 4-0.

Olsen could afford the luxury to have his spot kick saved by Pedrag Marcovic early in the second half before Justinussen completed his hat trick on the hour mark. 

Karl Løkin scored a consolation goal directly from free kick shortly before the final whistle. 

With the victory NSÍ stay within two points of leaders B36 whom they visit on Sunday 9 August.
