Following second-division Icelandic football (#2DIF) from New Jersey, one is generally dependent on the availability of local press to cover games and post live text updates. When I am able to follow a match as it’s happening and tweet out updates, well, there’s not a whole lot of match info to summarize beyond what I’ve already tweeted out. So, for those of you who may see the blog but not follow the Twitter, here’s the summary of the scoreless draw on August 29 between Vikingur Olafsvik and Leiknir Reykjavik.
Alas, Bolngarvik was unable to help the cause, falling to Akranes 1-0 after a stoppage time #refshow:
Vikingur Olafsvik now sits seven points behind second-place Akranes with only three matches remaining. Akranes faces 11th-place KV Reykjavik on Thursday and faces two mid-table squads in its last two matches, and can eliminate VikingurOl from the promotion chase with a win or two draws. VikingurOl plays Bolungarvik, KV, and Haukar, and basically has to win out and hope for some help from KV, Haukar, and Akureyri against IA, or else be reduced to fighting for the position of Best Non-Promoted Club In 1.Deild.
