Bottom-ranked Tindastoll managed to get a fourth victory on Friday night. This time they edged tenth-ranked Fjolnir in Sauoarkrokur 86-84. Tindastoll well out of reach of Fjolnir shooting 71.4 percent from the field. Strangely Fjolnir outrebounded Tindastoll 16-4. They shot the lights out from three sinking 20 long-distance shots on high 74.1 percentage. It was a good game for forward Hreinn Birgisson (193-89) who led his team to a victory with 21 points (perfect from the field making all seven shots !!!). American forward George Valentine (203, college: Winthrop) contributed with 20 points (on 8-of-9 shooting from the field) for the winners. Tindastoll's coach Bardur Eythorsson used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. Forward Tomas Tomasson (193-91, college: Newberry) answered with 32 points (on 12-of-14 shooting from the field) for Fjolnir. Tindastoll (4-11) moved-up to tenth place, which they share with IR and Fjolnir. Fjolnir lost fourth consecutive game. Tindastoll is looking forward to face higher ranked Skallagrimur (#8) in Borgarnes in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Fjolnir will play at home against Keflavik and is hoping to win this game.
Express L. top team - Grindavik (12-3) managed to deliver another win. This time they beat seventh ranked Njardvik (6-9) 96-84. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Njardvik. It was a great evening for American point guard Sammy Zeglinski (182-88, college: Virginia) who led his team to a victory scoring 30 points, 6 rebounds, 7 assists and 5 steals. Aaron Broussard helped adding 17 points and 10 rebounds (went 8 for 8 at the free throw line). The best for the losing side was American swingman Nigel Moore (195-81, college: Alabama A&M) with a double-double by scoring 21 points, 7 rebounds, 10 assists and 7 steals. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Grindavik have a solid series of three victories in a row.

Worth to mention about the upset in a game between Skallagrimur (6-9) and IR (4-11), which took place in Reykjavik. 8th ranked Skallagrimur was outleveled in a road game by eleventh ranked IR 96-70 on Thursday. It was an exceptional evening for Eric Palm who led the winners and scored 26 points and 9 rebounds.

Keflavik - KFI 111-102
