HB Tórshavn - EB/Streymur 6-0 (2-0)
1-0 Teit Jacobsen
2-0 Adrian Justinussen
3-0 Fróði Benjaminsen
4-0 Christian R. Mouritsen
5-0 Fróði Benjaminsen (pen)
6-0 Teit Jacobsen
After a 6-0 win it would be nonsensical to claim that the result could have been another if HB goalkeeper Teitur Gestsson had not made a spectacular save from an EB/Streymur free kick midway through the first half and shortly before HB's opening goal where Gestsson, who in the last two games has been in the kind of shape that earned him the goalkeeper of the year titles in the previous two seasons, made another outstanding block from a shot from inside the penalty area.
HB had by then had a clear majority of possession, but had not really tested Jákup Andrias Hansen in the EB/Streymur goal.
They did eventually, but the goalkeeper could do nothing to prevent the two HB goals inside the last five minutes before the break from youngster-duo Teit Jacobsen and Adrian Justinussen.
EB/Streymur’s pattern this season has often been that when they open their defensive doors, they leave it wide open, and today HB went from 2-0 to 5-0 in four minutes midway through the second half.
Fróði Benjaminsen first made it 3-0 with a free header from close range after a great cross from Rókur av Fløtum Jespersen before Christian R. Mouritsen increased to 4-0 with a low shot from long range a couple of minutes later.
A minute after, Benjaminsen made it 5-0 from the penalty spot as he had himself been pushed down in the penalty area, and credit to the referee for first giving the advantage, but as the attack ended in nothing, the referee blew late.
Jacobsen scored his second goal of the match with seven minutes remaining of normal time, and with some luck and a wicked deflection his shot went in as he had become clear in the goal area.
For HB the six goals could become crucial in the hunt for the last European ticket next season as their goal difference is now four goals better than KÍ Klaksvík’s who also trail by two points. Bot team have difficult away-matches next: HB against Víkingur and KÍ against NSÍ Runavík.
KÍ Klaksvík - B36 Tórshavn 2-1 (2-1)
0-1 Philip Lund
1-1 Kenan Hajdarevic
2-1 Ndende Adama Guéye
With the title already secures, B36 are playing with only half power, which KÍ took advantage of.
However, it was B36 who took the lead after ten minutes with a fine lobe from Danish forward Philip Lund who has been much injured.
Bosnian forward Kenan Hajdarevic equalized with a header from a corner on the half-hour, and shortly before half-time Senegalese midfielder Ndende headed home from a free kick what proved to be the winning goal.
AB Argir - ÍF Fuglafjørður 2-2 (1-1)
1-0 Rógvi Poulsen
1-1 Andy Olsen
2-1 Nicolaj Eriksen
2-2 Dánial á Lakjuni
With their 11th draw of the season, AB edged very close to safety as FC Suðuroy in 9th place will have to win both of their remaining matches against ÍF Fuglafjørður (h) and HB Tórshavn (a) while AB at the same time must not get more than a single point.
The joy for the home-supporters when AB took the lead in the 6th minute through Rógvi Poulsen was immense, but they were quickly silenced as ÍF equalized the minute after through Andy Olsen.
Nicolaj Eriksen restored AB’s lead just before half-time, but Dánjal á Lakjuni equalized for ÍF seven minutes from the end.
Víkingur - FC Suðuroy 3-1 (2-1)
1-0 Gert Hansen
1-1 Jón Krosslá Poulsen (pen)
2-1 Heðin Hansen
3-1 Gunnar Vatnhamar
After today’s defeat, FC Suðuroy need to win both of their remaining fixtures (ÍF Fuglafjørður (h) and HB Tórshavn (a)) to prevent relegation. At the same time AB Argir must not get more than one point. It’s unlikely.
After Gert Hansen gave Víkingur the lead in the 34th minute, Jón Krosslá Poulsen equalized from the penalty spot within three minutes, but just to see Heðin Hansen restore Víkingur’s lead just before the half-time whistle.
When Gunnar Vatnhamar made it 3-1 early in the second half, the writing was on the wall for Suðuroy.
TB Tvøroyri - NSÍ Runavík 2-2 (1-2)
0-1 Magnus Olsen
1-1 Patrik Johannesen
1-2 Jóhan Jacobsen
2-2 Teitur Justinussen
For the 8th time this season the comeback kids from TB managed to rescue a draw, having been behind at half-time.
Magnus Olsen’s goal in the 34th minute for the visitors was cancelled out by Patrik Johannesen’s four minutes later, but NSÍ went to half time with the lead as Johan Jacobsen score as the half was drawing to a close.
Early in the second half Klæmint Olsen missed his second penalty of the season as TB goalkeeper Ivan Stojkovic made his 3rd penalty save of the season. But it’s easy to save penalties in the Faroe Islands as 35% of them have been missed this season! For Olsen it meant that he failed to get closer to the all-time scoring record in one season held by Súni Fríði Barbá and Uni Arge with 24 goals during one league season. Olsen is at 21. He now has the matches against KÍ Klaksvík (h) and AB Argir (a) to take the record. In fairness, it should be noted that the current scoring record was set during a 18-match league compared to the current 27-match league. On the other hand results like 6-0 and even 10-0 were much more common before than they are today.
But back to the match today; and there Teitur Justinussen managed to equalize with less than two minutes remaining to earn TB their 13th draw of the season.
