Lele Hardy
The games at this stage are more interesting as they can be crucial for the final standings in Regular Season. Despite we already know who is stronger and who is weaker, there may be still last minute susprises and upsets.

The most exciting game of round 24 in the Express L. took place in Grindavik. This derby game ended with only two-point home defeat of 7th ranked Grindavik (6-18) to sixth ranked Njardvik (8-16) 71-69 in the game for the sixth place. Grindavik was trailing by 4 points at halftime but managed to get 2-point lead after three quarters before a 22-18 charge of Njardvik, which allowed them to win the game. Great defensive blocking was one of the keys in this match when Njardvik made 7 blocks. It was a good game for American Lele Hardy (182-88, college: Clemson, agency: Merit Sports) who led her team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 26 points, 25 rebounds and 8 assists. Center Salbjorg Saevarsdottir (182-91) contributed with 10 points and 11 rebounds for the winners. Njardvik's coach Lele Hardy used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. American guard Crystal Smith (168-84, college: Iowa) replied with a double-double by scoring 38 points (!!!) and 13 rebounds for Grindavik. Defending champion maintains sixth position with 8-16 record. Grindavik lost fourth consecutive game. Newly promoted team keeps the seventh place with 18 games lost. Njardvik are looking forward to face league's leader Keflavik at home in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Grindavik will play against the league's second-placed Snaefell (#2) in Stykkisholmur and is hoping to prove to their fans that they can break losing series.
Another interesting game was a derby match between two teams from Reykjavik: Valur (#4) and Fjolnir (#8). Fjolnir was defeated at home 74-80 and even the fact of playing on their own court did not help. Worth to mention a great performance of American guard Jaleesa Butler (185-87, college: Georgetown) who helped to win the game recording a triple-double by scoring 31 points, 17 rebounds, 8 assists and 10 blocks and Kristrun Sigurjonsdottir who added 17 points, 8 rebounds, 4 assists and 5 steals during the contest. The best for the losing side was American guard Britney Jones (172-87, college: UAB) with 38 points (!!!), 7 assists and 5 steals. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Valur maintains fourth position with 14-10 record. Fjolnir lost fifth consecutive game. They stay dead last with 21 lost games. Valur will play against Haukar (#5) in Hafnarfjordur in the next round. Fjolnir's supporters look forward to another derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Reykjavik KR.
The game in Hafnarfjordur supposed to be also quite interesting. Second ranked Snaefell (18-6) played at the court of 5th ranked Haukar (11-13). Snaefell smashed Haukar 78-50 on Saturday. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Haukar. The winners were led by Kieraah Marlow who scored that evening 14 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists. Even a double-double of 26 points and 13 rebounds (went 7 for 7 at the free throw line) by Siarre Evans did not help to save the game for Haukar. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Snaefell have a solid three-game winning streak. They maintain second position with 18-6 record having just one points less than leader Keflavik. Haukar at the other side keeps the fifth place with 13 games lost. Snaefell will meet at home Grindavik (#7) in the next round where they are favorite. Haukar will play against Valur in Reykjavik and it may be a tough game between close rivals.



Fjolnir - Valur 74-80

Another interesting game was a derby match between two teams from Reykjavik: Valur (#4) and Fjolnir (#8). Fjolnir was defeated at home 74-80 and even the fact of playing on their own court did not help. The guests started the game with a very strong first quarter 22-7. But Fjolnir won third quarter 21-15. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Valur dominated on the defensive end, holding Fjolnir to just 7 points in first quarter. They also forced 21 Fjolnir turnovers. Strangely Fjolnir outrebounded Valur 48-36 including a 23-9 advantage in offensive rebounds. Their players were unselfish on offense dishing 22 assists. Valur brought some defensive toughness making 13 blocks. Worth to mention a great performance of American guard Jaleesa Butler (185-87, college: Georgetown) who helped to win the game recording a triple-double by scoring 31 points, 17 rebounds, 8 assists and 10 blocks and the former international forward Kristrun Sigurjonsdottir (176-85) who added 17 points, 8 rebounds, 4 assists and 5 steals during the contest. The best for the losing side was American guard Britney Jones (172-87, college: UAB) with 38 points (!!!), 7 assists and 5 steals and forward Heidrun Harpa Rikhardsdottir (173-92) scored 7 points, 15 rebounds and 5 blocks. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Valur maintains fourth position with 14-10 record. Fjolnir lost fifth consecutive game. They stay dead last with 21 lost games. Valur will play against Haukar (#5) in Hafnarfjordur in the next round. Fjolnir's supporters look forward to another derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Reykjavik KR.

Haukar - Snaefell 50-78

The game in Hafnarfjordur supposed to be also quite interesting. Second ranked Snaefell (18-6) played at the court of 5th ranked Haukar (11-13). Snaefell smashed Haukar 78-50 on Saturday. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Haukar. The game was mostly controlled by Snaefell. Haukar managed to win second period 17-13. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Snaefell held Haukar to an opponent 25.0 percent shooting from the field compared to 41.8 percent accuracy of the winners. They outrebounded Haukar 52-37 including a 39-22 advantage in defensive rebounds. Snaefell looked well-organized offensively handing out 22 assists comparing to just 9 passes made by Haukar's players. The winners were led by American forward Kieraah Marlow (178-85) who scored that evening 14 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists and the former international guard Hildur Sigurdardottir (178-81) supported her with 7 points, 11 rebounds and 4 assists. Even a double-double of 26 points and 13 rebounds (went 7 for 7 at the free throw line) by American swingman Siarre Evans (178-88, college: E.Tenn.St.) did not help to save the game for Haukar. Forward Audur Olafsdottir (173-92) added 3 points and 6 rebounds. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Snaefell have a solid three-game winning streak. They maintain second position with 18-6 record having just one points less than leader Keflavik. Haukar at the other side keeps the fifth place with 13 games lost. Snaefell will meet at home Grindavik (#7) in the next round where they are favorite. Haukar will play against Valur in Reykjavik and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
