NSÍ Runavík took over top spot in the Faroese league after a 4-0 victory against Skála last night.

Skála rooted to bottom
Djoni Nolsoe Joensen put Runavík ahead in the 12th minute and Urlik Balling added a second 15 minutes later. Two goals in the first seven minutes of the second half from Brynjolvur Nielsen and Sjur ur Jacobsen sealed the victory and left Skála rooted to the bottom of the league.

Rout completed
n the night's other game, KÍ Klaksvík also recorded a 4-0 victory away from home. An own goal from EB/Streymur's Andrzej Pacek in the 13th minute got them off to a perfect start and second-half strikes from Hedin a Lakjuni (two minutes) and Harley Bertholdsen completed the rout.

Game abandoned
On Sunday the game between B68 Toftir and B36 Tórshavn was abandoned after an hour due to bad weather. HB Tórshavn had no such problems as they disposed of VB Vágur 3-0. Hans a Lag opened the scoring after just two minutes to set the tone for the game but his side had to wait until the 78th minute for their second. Andrew av Flxtum obliged to make it 2-0 before Rsgvi Jacobsen rounded things off two minutes from time.

Tvøroyri defeated
TB Tvøroyri were less effective at home to GÍ Gøtu as they were defeated 3-0. A penalty from Samal Joensen in the 57th minute was added to by further goals from Szni Frmpi Johannesen and Szni Olsen.
