Faroe Islands round-up: Comfortable wins for the top three

There were comfortable wins for the top three as five matches at the weekend produced 24 goals.

There were comfortable wins for the top three in the Faroe Islands, as the five matches at the weekend produced 24 goals.

HB still on course
EB/Streymur's draw with B36 Tórshavn ensured their place in the top flight for next season while HB Tórshavn stayed on course to lift the title after they put five past relegation-threatened Skála. Jón Rói Jacobsen opened the scoring after only eight minutes, and a minute later Andrew av Fløtum doubled the lead. Rúni Nolsøe made it three just before half-time, and goals in the second half from Andrew av Fløtum and substitute Eyðun Samuelsen gave HB the three points.

Impressive win for KÍ
KÍ Klaksvík held on to second place after an impressive 5-1 victory against GÍ Gøtu. The first half was a very even affair with Heðin á Lakjuni giving KÍ the lead before GÍ drew level with a Súni Olsen strike. However, Hjalgrím Elttør restored KÍ’s lead before the interval, and in the second half it was very much one-way traffic. Harley Bertholdsen made it 3-1 early in the second half, and when GÍ captain Sámal Joensen was sent off shortly after, there was no way back for the visitors. Strikes from Hjalgrím Elttør and Símin Joensen made the final score 5-1.

NSÍ bounce back
NSÍ Runavík are still in with a chance of lifting the title after beating bottom club TB Tvøroyri 5-2 away in an entertaining encounter. NSÍ scored their first three goals in a four-minute spell midway through the fist half, as Óli Hansen, Sonni Petersen and Gert Langgaard all got their name on the scoresheet. Jónstein Petersen made it four, before Vladimir Matijevic pulled one back for the hosts. Midway through the second half, Kaj Roest pulled another goal back for TB to make it 4-2, but Jónstein Petersen notced his second of day the to make the points safe for NSÍ.

B36 slip up again
Last season's double winners B36's disappointing season continued when they could only manage a 1-1 draw against EB/Streymur. Kenneth Jacobsen put B36 ahead midway through the second half, but Eyðfinn Joensen equalised late in the game to give EB/Streymur the point that keeps them safe from relegation.

Good win for B68
In Toftir, neither B68 Toftir or VB Vágur had much more than pride to play for, but B68 finished the happier, as they picked up a deserved 4-0 victory. Øssur Hansen scored a hat-trick with one goal before half-time and two after the break. John Heri Dam completed the scoring late on.
