Havnar Boltfelag restored their seven point lead at the top of the Faroe Islands Effodeildin yesterday with a 3-2 win against NSI Runavik at the Gundadalur. They had national team midfielder Simun Eiler Samuelsen to thank as he scored a second half hat-trick to give his team the lead and then restore it after Klamint Olsen had equalised for NSI. Samuelsen and HB held off a late fight-back when Arni Frederiksberg made it 3-2. Elsewhere on Monday, Vikingur Gotu eased their relegation fears with a 3-1 win over TB Tvoroyri, whose run of four straight defeats has left them in the drop zone.
IF Fuglafjordur had cut HB’s lead to just four points on Sunday with a 2-1 away win at B36 Torshavn, bouncing back from a Lukasz Cieslewicz strike to reply through league top scorer Clayton Soares and then grab a last minute winner from midfielder Bogi Petersen. Saturday’s matches saw bottom club 07 Vestur pick up a surprise win against KI Klaksvik, who have now lost four on the bounce, and Argja Boltfelag continue their recent resurgence with a 3-1 win over EB/Streymur.
