ODD stories

Sundays historical match: Hønefoss BK vs ODD Grenland 4th October 2008

It was a cold and windy evening in Hønefoss. Me and some friends attended the game among with 200 fellow supporters. Standing on a poor, wooden and very slippery stand (one of my friends had a broken leg at the time, mind that), the point were clear: If we win, we’ll promote.

Todays pitch was in a bad condition, which clearly made an impact on the game. The passing didn’t float, and the midfield possessed most of the first half. The pitch was poor, but the teams had to take their share…

But finally, in the 38th minute, a chance were created. Suddenly, out of nothing Kenneth Dokken found himself alone with the goalkeeper. Unluckily he has never had good goalscoring abilities, and he sent the ball far wide. Neither Fredrik Gulsvik were able to take good care of his chance in the first half, as he shoots straight on the goalie from a good position.

Second half started in the same manner, but this time Hønefoss had some opportunities. As time went on ODD gradually took over. But in the 65th minute Lars Lafton was too easily passed through, and alone with Arni Gautur Arason he scored with a low shot past the Icelandic international.

For some reason the air went out of the ODD-balloon. Even though prominent players like Chukwuma Akabueze and Alex Valencia was subbed in, they created no chances untill the 90th minute. A good cross came towards Peter Kovacs, but the huge Hungarian bear was just inches away from having a good shot.

Alltogether a very disappointing match by ODD, and the champaign had to wait. For a promotion challenger to lose against a team who gathered 400 spectators(half away fans) was quite surprising.

But new chances came already a few days later, so the Tippeligaen train was still on the station….
