B36 claim ninth Faroese crown

B36 Tórshavn have secured their ninth Faroese title after Simun Joensen and Lukasz Cieslewicz struck at NSÍ Runavík to edge out EB/Streymur with one game remaining.

B36 Tórshavn have secured their ninth Faroese title, and first since 2005, after goals from Simun Joensen and Lukasz Cieslewicz sealed a 2-1 victory at NSÍ Runavík that left the capital side four points clear of EB/Streymur with one match left.

EB needed the leaders to fail to win both their games and were given a glimmer of hope when Klæmint Olsen levelled the scores with 61 minutes gone, full-back Joensen having headed in his eighth goal of the campaign from Súni Olsen's free-kick ten minutes before the interval. Polish forward Cieslewicz ended the suspense with nine minutes left, however, claiming his 15th strike this season following a fine solo run.

After the match, coach Mikkjal Thomassen expressed his delighted with the progress his side have made over the season. He said: "We've been very focused on what we've wanted to achieve, but the results have come quicker than we expected and it's gone better than we dared to dream about. We're extremely pleased."

Captain Klæmint Matras praised the part good coaching played in the triumph, meanwhile. "The decisive factor has been the good mix we have in the squad and also the fantastic coaching pair of Mikkjal Thomassen and John Petersen, who have been so organised all the way through," he explained.
