EB/Streymur won the super cup for the third time in succession with the only goal of the game coming just before half time.
EB/Streymur was the better team in the first quarter of an hour and had two qualified attempts from Gunnar Zachariasen from wide a wide position just inside the penalty area, but Víkingur goalkeeper Gezza Turi parried the first attempt - aimed at the top corner – and moments later he reacted quickly to get down and block the shot from the forward.
The match evened out thereafter where Víkingur just the flanks to get forward and made a number of crosses, but without getting really dangerous.
But from a corner, Víkingur defender Heðin Hansen so nearly headed Víkingur in front when the big man steered the ball towards the top corner, but a combination of a goalkeeper-save and a defender saving off the line – and maybe with the help of the post – EB/Streymur survived the scare.
Instead it was EB/Streymur who took the lead a couple of minutes before halftime after a long throw-in where the ball fell to Niels Pauli Danielsen who fired the ball into the back of the net.
EB/Streymur should have doubled their lead a minute after from a fast break through Arnbjørn Hansen who played Leif Niclasen clear inside the penalty area, but with the goal at his mercy, EB/Streymur’s new captain fired well over the crossbar.
But if it was difficult for Samuelsen to miss just before halftime, it looked impossible for Zachariasen – who otherwise had played outstanding and showing his good technique on several occasions - to miss just after the break when Niclasen on the right hand side had outpaced Víkingur’s defender to serve the ball to a completely clear Zachariasen in front of an open goal with no goalkeeper, but somehow he managed to sidefoot the ball on the post.
Apart from that, EB/Streymur didn’t threaten much in the second half – except once when Zachariasen’s through ball to Hansen was close, but Turi was quick out of his goal to block the attempt.
Víkingur produced a couple of good opportunities. One of them was midway through the half when Finnur Justinussen was played through, but René Tórgarð made a superb block to deny the usually lethal Viking.
Also left back Hanus Jacobsen was close towards the end of the match, but his attempt from close range went into the side-netting.
