Ragna
Brynjarsdottir
The most interesting game was a derby match between two local teams from Reykjavik: Valur (#4) and KR (#3). KR was smashed at home by 23 points 52-75 and even the fact of playing on their own court did not help. The guests were tied at the half but managed to speed up in last two quarters eventually winning the game. Valur dominated on the defensive end, holding KR to just 4 points in third quarter. They outrebounded KR 50-34 including 21 on the offensive glass. Valur looked well-organized offensively handing out 21 assists. Great defensive blocking was one of the keys in this match when Valur made 9 blocks. Worth to mention a great performance of the former international center Ragna Brynjarsdottir (188-90) who helped to win the game recording 19 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists (made all of her seven free throws) and the former international forward Kristrun Sigurjonsdottir (176-85) who added 16 points and 11 rebounds during the contest. Valur's coach Agust Bjorgvinsson felt very confident using entire bench which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. At the losing side the former international power forward Sigrun Amundadottir (181-88, agency: Promotex) responded with a double-double by scoring 16 points, 14 rebounds, 4 assists and 4 steals. Valur have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to third place, which they share with defeated KR. KR lost third consecutive game. Valur's supporters look forward to another derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Reykjavik Fjolnir.
Express L. top team - Keflavik (15-1) had no problems winning another game. This time they crushed sixth ranked Grindavik (5-11) 83-57. The winners were led by the former international forward Bryndis Gudmundsdottir (178-88) who scored that evening 16 points, 7 rebounds, 6 assists and 5 steals and Jessica Jenkins supported her with 13 points, 10 rebounds and 4 assists. Even 21 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists by American guard Crystal Smith (168-84, college: Iowa) did not help to save the game for Grindavik. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Keflavik maintains first position with 15-1 record. Newly promoted Grindavik keeps the sixth place with 11 games lost. Keflavik will play against KR (#4) in Reykjavik in the next round. Grindavik will play on the road against Njardvik and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
The game in Reykjavik was also quite interesting. Second ranked Snaefell (12-4) played at the court of 8th ranked Fjolnir (2-14). Snaefell managed to secure a 7-point victory 67-60 on Wednesday. Rebekka Karlsdottir fired a double-double by scoring 22 points and 11 rebounds for the winners. Britney Jones produced 36 points (!!!) and 5 assists for lost side. Snaefell maintains second position with 12-4 record having just three points less than leader Keflavik. Fjolnir lost sixth consecutive game. They stay at the bottom place with 14 games lost. Snaefell will meet at home Haukar (#5) in the next round. Fjolnir's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Reykjavik to the arena Valur.
Fifth ranked Haukar (8-8) crushed at home 7th ranked Njardvik (4-12) by 29 points 86-57, which is the biggest margin this round. It was a very good performance for Siarre Evans who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 24 points and 17 rebounds. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. Haukar have a solid three-game winning streak. They maintain fifth position with 8-8 record. Defending champion Njardvik keeps the seventh place with 12 games lost. Haukar's next round opponent will be league's second-placed Snaefell in Stykkisholmur and it may be quite challenging game. Njardvik will play at home against Grindavik (#6) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.



Fjolnir - Snaefell 60-67

The game in Reykjavik was also quite interesting. Second ranked Snaefell (12-4) played at the court of 8th ranked Fjolnir (2-14). Snaefell managed to secure a 7-point victory 67-60 on Wednesday. The guests started the game with a very strong first quarter 22-13. But Fjolnir won second period 13-9. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. The game was decided in the last minutes when Snaefell won last quarter 23-17. Snaefell outrebounded Fjolnir 47-36 including 16 on the offensive glass. Guard Rebekka Karlsdottir (157-96) fired a double-double by scoring 22 points and 11 rebounds for the winners. American forward Kieraah Marlow (178-85) chipped in a double-double by scoring 16 points and 12 rebounds. American guard Britney Jones (172-87, college: UAB) produced 36 points (!!!) and 5 assists and forward Heidrun Harpa Rikhardsdottir (173-92) added 7 points and 8 rebounds respectively for lost side. Snaefell maintains second position with 12-4 record having just three points less than leader Keflavik. Fjolnir lost sixth consecutive game. They stay at the bottom place with 14 games lost. Snaefell will meet at home Haukar (#5) in the next round. Fjolnir's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Reykjavik to the arena Valur.

Haukar - Njardvik 86-57

Fifth ranked Haukar (8-8) crushed at home 7th ranked Njardvik (4-12) by 29 points 86-57, which is the biggest margin this round. The game without a history.

Haukar dominated down low during the game scoring 52 of its points in the paint compared to Njardvik's 30. Haukar forced 19 Njardvik turnovers and outrebounded them 56-33 including a 47-20 advantage in defensive rebounds. Their players were unselfish on offense dishing 23 assists. It was a very good performance for American swingman Siarre Evans (178-88, college: E.Tenn.St.) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 24 points and 17 rebounds. Guard Gunnhildur Gunnarsdottir (175-90) contributed with 14 points and 5 assists for the winners. American Lele Hardy (182-88, college: Clemson, agency: Merit Sports) replied with a triple-double by scoring 16 points, 14 rebounds, 6 assists and 12 steals and swingman Eyrun Sigurdardottir (165-94) added 13 points in the effort for Njardvik. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. Haukar have a solid three-game winning streak. They maintain fifth position with 8-8 record. Defending champion Njardvik keeps the seventh place with 12 games lost. Haukar's next round opponent will be league's second-placed Snaefell in Stykkisholmur and it may be quite challenging game.
