EB/Streymur lifted the Faroese Cup for the fourth time in five seasons after completing a 3-0 success against ÍF Fuglafjørdur thanks to a goal from Arnbjørn Hansen either side of Daniel Udsen's penalty.
The holders, who overcame ÍF in last year's final, took the lead on ten minutes after winning possession deep in their opponents' half. Pætur Dam Jacobsen played Hans Pauli Samuelsen into the penalty area with a fine pass and the forward unselfishly laid the ball off to Hansen, who turned it in from close range.
Hansen might have doubled the lead ten minutes later had he not directed a free header off target, and the 25-year-old was almost punished for his miss when Bartal Eliasen powered a header of his own just wide on the stroke of half-time. Team-mate Dánjal á Lakjunu then brought a fine save out of EB/Streymur goalkeeper René Tórgard as ÍF laid siege to Hedin Askham's charges' goal.
Yet EB/Streymur extended their lead ten minutes into the second half when Udsen converted a spot kick after ÍF goalkeeper Jákup Mikkelsen brought down Leif Niclasen, who had been released by Udsen's brilliant through ball. ÍF continued to create goalscoring opportunities and EB/Streymur twice cleared off their goal line.
However, it was EB/Streymur, and Hansen, who would score again, the Faroese international side-footing in with ease in added time. "It's a great feeling to win it again this year," said EB/Streymur defender Egil á Bø. "We needed some good news as there has been so much adversity on all fronts. This is fantastic. This is great for the club."
