P.J. Alawoya
The Regular Season in Dominos League is slowly approaching the end. But there may be still some important changes in the final standings in the last 4 rounds. There were many interesting games last round. The round ended with derby games, favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

The game had a very big importance for second-ranked KR as it allowed them to take a leadership position. KR smashed 8th ranked IR in Reykjavik 95-73. The game without a history. KR led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. KR outrebounded IR 48-37 including a 38-25 advantage in defensive rebounds. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 30 assists comparing to just 14 passes made by IR's players. The best player for the winners was Nigerian-American forward PJ Alawoya (203-88, college: McNeese St., agency: Inception Sports) who scored 22 points, 9 rebounds and 5 assists. The former international guard Jon Stefansson (192-82) chipped in 17 points and 6 assists. At the other side the best for losing team was point guard Matthias Sigurdarson (180-94, college: Columbus St.) who recorded 18 points and 7 assists. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. As mentioned above they are alone now at the top position. IR at the other side dropped to the ninth place with ten games lost. IR will play next round against Thor AK trying to get back on the winning streak. KR will try to continue on its current victory against eighth ranked Njardvik in Njardvik.
An exciting game between Top Four teams was played in Sauoarkrokur. Third ranked Tindastoll faced second-best Stjarnan. Host Tindastoll (13-5) smashed guests from Stjarnan (13-5) 92-69. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Stjarnan. It was a good game for guard Petur Birgisson (185-96) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 21 points, 13 rebounds, 4 assists and 5 steals. Antonio Hester contributed with 22 points, 10 rebounds and 4 assists for the winners. Nigerian-American guard Anthony Odunsi (193-92, college: Houston Baptist) replied with 22 points and 9 rebounds (went 13 for 13 at the free throw line !!!) for Stjarnan. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Tindastoll have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to second place, which they share with defeated Stjarnan. Tindastoll will play against Thor Thorl (#4) in Thorlakshofn in the next round. Stjarnan will play at home against Skallagrimur and hopes to get back on the winning track.
An interesting game where Keflavik (#7) won against host Grindavik (#4) 92-85 on Sunday evening. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Grindavik. Amin Stevens had a double-double by scoring 36 points (!!!) and 16 rebounds (on 15-of-19 shooting from the field) to lead the charge for the winners. The best for the losing side was Olafur Olafsson with 27 points and 9 rebounds. Keflavik (9-9) moved-up to sixth place, which they share with Njardvik and Thor AK. Loser Grindavik keeps the fourth position with eight games lost. They share it with Thor Thorl. Keflavik will meet at home Haukar (#11) in the next round where they are favorite. Grindavik will play against Snaefell (#12) in Stykkisholmur and hope to secure a win.
Bottom-ranked Snaefell (0-18) tried to put together a comeback for its first victory of the season, but they fell short in the 122-119 loss to tenth ranked Skallagrimur (7-11) in Borgarnes. Flenard Whitfield notched a double-double by scoring 41 points (!!!), 17 rebounds and 5 assists to lead the effort. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Newly promoted Skallagrimur maintains tenth position with 7-11 record. Snaefell at the other side still closes the standings. Skallagrimur's next round opponent will be higher ranked Stjarnan (#3) on the road and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Snaefell will play against Grindavik (#5) and hopes to get finally their first victory.
The game in Thorlakshofn was also quite interesting. 5th ranked Thor AK (9-9) played at the court of sixth ranked Thor Thorl (10-8). Thor Thorl managed to secure a 5-point victory 73-68 on Sunday. The best player for the winners was Tobin Carberry who had a double-double by scoring 31 points and 16 rebounds. Thor Thorl moved-up to fourth place, which they share with Grindavik. Newly promoted Thor AK dropped to the sixth position with nine games lost. Thor Thorl will face league's second-placed Tindastoll in Sauoarkrokur in the next round and it may be the game of the week. Thor AK will play on the road against IR (#9) in Reykjavik and hope to win that game.

In the last game of round 18 Njardvik defeated Haukar in Njardvik 78-73.

Tindastoll - Stjarnan 92-69

An exciting game between Top Four teams was played in Sauoarkrokur. Third ranked Tindastoll faced second-best Stjarnan. Host Tindastoll (13-5) smashed guests from Stjarnan (13-5) 92-69. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Stjarnan. It looked good early as Stjarnan took a 4-point small lead at the end of first quarter. But then Tindastoll had a 27-15 second period charge getting the lead and Stjarnan was not able to take back game control losing it eventually 69-92. Tindastoll forced 19 Stjarnan turnovers. Stjarnan was plagued by 24 personal fouls down the stretch. It was a good game for guard Petur Birgisson (185-96) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 21 points, 13 rebounds, 4 assists and 5 steals. American forward Antonio Hester (198-90, college: Mobile, AL) contributed with a double-double by scoring 22 points, 10 rebounds and 4 assists for the winners. Hester is a former Eurobasket Summer League player, which is considered top international summer league in the market. Nigerian-American guard Anthony Odunsi (193-92, college: Houston Baptist) replied with 22 points and 9 rebounds (went 13 for 13 at the free throw line !!!) and the former international power forward Hlynur Baeringsson (200-82) added 8 points and 14 rebounds in the effort for Stjarnan. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Tindastoll have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to second place, which they share with defeated Stjarnan. Tindastoll will play against Thor Thorl (#4) in Thorlakshofn in the next round. Stjarnan will play at home against Skallagrimur and hopes to get back on the winning track.
