Víkingur lift Faroese Super Cup

Vikingur lifted the Faroese Super Cup after edging Faroese Premier League champions Torshavn 5-3 on penalties following a 3-3 draw on Sunday.

Vikingur took the lead within two minutes when an attempted cross from Samal Joensen ended up in the net, before Odmar Faero’s header came off the post and into the goal off Vikings goalkeeper Geza Turi as the White Tigers equalised a couple of minutes later.

Midway through the first half, Lukasz Cieslewicz was played clear and slipped the ball to Roaldur Jakobsen, before the scoreline was leveled by the Serpugerdi Stadium outfit through a second goal from Joensen’s rocket into the top corner after he was set up by Philip Djordjevic.

Samal Hentze’s Gundadalur Stadium side were reduced to ten men shortly after the break when centre-back Hordur Ashkam was given his marching orders, but five minutes later they took a 3-2 lead, Gestur Bogason Dam crossing for Hogni Eysturoy to finish with ease.

Sigfridur Clementsen’s men equalised a minute later as Finnur Justinussen rifled into the bottom corner to set up a penalty shootout, in where Vikingur scored all five attempts from the spot and that secured them the silverware in the traditional curtain-raiser to the new season, with Torshavn’s Arni Nielsen’s miss proving crucial.
