When only one round is left in Division one picture is getting clear of who will make it to play-offs. KFI has already won the league and will move up to top league without going to play-offs. Next four teams will fight for the second spot to move up. Skallagrimur, Hamar and Hottur are in there and then its b question if it will be IA or Breidablik. IA has the better chance, need to win Armann who are already out of the league for next season but Breidablik needs to win Hottur away. If IA wins their game their in. IG will also drop down from the league with Armann. Result from last round. Skallagrimur 121 IG 81. Lloyd Harrison & Hordur Hreidarsson 21 each for the winner. Bergvin Olafarson 30 for IG. Hamar 98 Thor Ak 79. Calvin Wooten 25 for Hamar. Darko Milosevic 30 for Thor FSU 97 Armann 76. Saemundur Valdimarsson and Steven Crawford 18 for FSU. Wesley HSU 18 for Armann IA 109. Breidablik 81.
