Faroe Islands round-up: HB prevail in thriller

HB Tórshavn have bounced back from three consecutive defeats with a dramatic 4-3 win.

HB Tórshavn finally put their Faroe Islands first division title challenge back on track on Sunday with a dramatic 4-3 away defeat of GÍ Gøtu.

Timely boost
After three consecutive league defeats had led to the sacking of Romanian coach Ion Geolgau and the concession of top spot, the victory was a timely boost. In an entertaining game Andrew av Fløtum scored two penalties for HB, while Sámal Joensen was also on target twice from the spot for the home side. Krzysztof Popczynski and Nocko Jokovic also netted for the visitors.

Runavík at the summit
League leaders NSÍ Runavík stayed at the summit with a 4-0 demolition of EB/Streymur, Djóni Joensen opening the scoring on 13 minutes and Ulrik Balling doubling the lead with a long-range volley before the break. Óli Hansen put the game beyond the visitors and Gert Langgaard completed the rout in the final stages.

KÍ stay in touch
Third-placed KÍ Klaksvík stayed in touch with the leaders with a hard-fought 1-0 win against B68 Toftir, defender Ove Nysted converting a decisive penalty on 50 minutes after the rival goalkeeper was sent off.

Shock defeat
B36 Tórshavn, in fourth spot, suffered a shock 2-1 defeat by second-bottom TB Tvøroyri, going down to goals from Dan Mortensen and Vladimir Matijivic. Basement club Skála, meanwhile, held out for a scoreless away draw with VB Vágur.
