Round 17 summary and highlights.

A little Tuesday night summary of round 17 in Tippeligaen, with all the – legal – highlights from the excellent website.

Updated league table here.

Strømsgodset – Fredrikstad 5-0

The league leaders demolish Fredrikstad to go six points clear on top of the table,  Péter Kovács getting a brace to reach 51 Tippeligaen goals in 151 matches.

Lillestrøm – Molde 1-1

Molde let two important points slip from their grasp as Espen Nystuen’s late equaliser cancels out Magne Simonsen’s freakish opener.

Aalesund – Stabæk 3-1

Stabæk left to rue early misses, as Tremaine Stewart’s sensational goal helped Aalesund overcome  the bottom club.

Hønefoss – Haugesund 3-2

Entertaining clash between teams doing a lot better than expected. Heiner Mora’s stunning winner took the home team past Haugesund and up to 4th in the league.

Sogndal – Odd Grenland 0-1

20 year old striker Torgeir Børven takes his career total to 24 goals in 59 matches and secures three important points for Odd with a well executed penalty.

Viking – Sandnes Ulf 5-0

Viking scores 25% of all their league goals this season in one match as they tear apart local rivals Sandnes, the average age of their five goal scorers being only 21.

Tromsø – Rosenborg 1-1

Rosenborg could not hang on against Tromsø and was lucky to get away with a point in the end. They have the fewest losses and goals against in the league, but are still only 3rd, eight points behind Strømsgodset.

Vålerenga – Brann 1-1
