Stoppage Time Comeback in Akranes

Stoppage time giveth, and stoppage time taketh away.  Last week against Selfoss, Vikingur Olafsvik conceded a goal in stoppage time and lost 1-0.  This week, as the clock ticked over to the 90th minute, Vikingur trailed Akranes 2-1, and it looked bleak.

Then a penalty was given a minute into stoppage time, Eyþór Helgi Birgisson converted to equalize the game at 2-2, and it looked like Vikingur would escape Akranes with an away point.

But that wasn’t all.  Three minutes later, Fannar Hilmarsson found the back of the net to put Olafsvik up 3-2, for a stunning come-from-behind stoppage time victory.

Vikingur Olafsvik now sits in fourth place in the 1.Dield, with six points.
