Norway round-up: Vålerenga in seventh heaven

Vålerenga Fotball recorded their biggest win since 1951 when they beat IK Start 7-2 on Sunday.

Vålerenga Fotball recorded their largest winning scoreline in the Tippeligaen since 1951 when they beat bottom side IK Start 7-2 away from home on Sunday.

Grahn impact
Swedish playmaker Tobias Grahn pulled the strings in the first half, scoring after just four minutes and - after setting up a pair for David Hanssen - adding the fourth on 20 minutes. Start pulled two back before half-time through Ousman Nyan's 18-metre screamer and a 44th-minute header from Preben Gundersen.

Dime barred
But Vålerenga underlined their superiority after the break, Jonas Krogstad hitting number five before Start goalkeeper Dime Jankulowski was sent off for a foul in the area 20 minutes from time. Kjetil Rekdal converted the ensuing penalty for their sixth and Erik Hagen completed the rout.

Lyn top
SFK Lyn stayed top of the table after a 3-0 win against third-placed Odds BK, with goals from striker Ole-Bjørn Sundgot coming either side of Johan Gudmundsson's fine solo effort.

Hulsker on target
Meanwhile, a solitary Bernt Hulsker goal 64 minutes from time ensured Molde FK continued their pursuit of Lyn with a 1-0 victory over Stabæk IF. But Rosenborg BK are still in the title hunt having moved up to fourth in the table with a 3-0 win over Sogndal IL 3-0 thanks to goals from Frode Johnsen, Harald Brattbakk and substitute Dagfinn Enerly.

Moss rolling
Elsewhere, Moss FK earned their first home win of the season with a last-minute 1-0 success against FK Bodø/Glimt while Lillestrøm SK continued their slump after going down 1-0 at home against SK Brann.
