B36 claim tenth Faroese title

"It's a fantastic feeling," said forward Lukasz Cieslewicz after B36 Tórshavn defeated B68 Toftir 3-1 to clinch their tenth Faroese title with a game to spare.

B36 Tórshavn clinched their tenth Faroese title with a round to spare after a 3-1 victory against already-relegated B68 Toftir gave them an unassailable lead.

That nerve was certainly tested when lowly B68 took a first-minute lead through Senegalese forward Ibrahima Camara. The visitors nevertheless drew level on 13 minutes when Lukasz Cieslewicz set up Nigerian striker Adeshina Lawal to equalise.

In first-half added time, Lawal then turned provider for Alex Mellemgaard to give B36 the lead and, with 20 minutes remaining, Klæmint Matras wrapped up the win and the championship with a third goal.

"It's a fantastic feeling," said Polish forward Cieslewicz. "We have been working extremely hard this year to reach our goal and we knew from the beginning that we could make it – and we did it." Captain Jákup Borg added: "This is big. I am really moved. The older you get, the more emotional it becomes."
