Round 24 and Cup Semi-Finals: Grand Old Competition Unearths Bright Young Talent

The Norwegian Cup semi-finals was the main subject of my STV Sport blog this week, looking at its illustrious history, some of its darker chapters and how Hødd, the fairytale team of this year’s competition, defeated Brann with the help of 16-year-old Fredrik Aursnes, reaching the final for the first time.

Highlights below:

Tromsø – Molde 2-1

Hødd – Brann 3-1

Week 24 in Tippeligaen saw both Rosenborg and Molde come out on top in two very entertaining matches that both provided seven goals. Strømsgodset made sure the top three is still locked within two points of each other with a close fought win over Brann. Tromsø completed a great week with a win against Aalesund, while Morten Berre scored another quintessential Morten Berre goal in Vålerenga’s away win over Fredrikstad.

Borek Dockal and Rade Prica’s goals against Haugesund (Rosneborg’s second and third) are my favourite goals of the week and you should also check out Stabæk’s shock opener against Molde, scoring after just 11 seconds through Franck Boli.

Highlights below and updated league table here
