Finnsson scores as Fylkir draw

B Team forward nets first professional goal

31 May 2019

Kolbeinn Finnsson scored his first goal in professional football when Fylkir Reykjavik drew 2-2 with FH on Sunday.

The B Team forward, playing his fifth game back in Iceland, opened the scoring against FH (Fimleikafélag Hafnarfjardar) after only 11 minutes. He cut inside from the right wing and struck a low shot into the bottom corner at the far post.

Hjörtur Logi Valgardsson equalised after 22 minutes, the scores staying level until half-time. After the break, Helgi Valur Daníelsson put the home side back into the lead but it only lasted two minutes. Brandur Hendriksson Olsen struck for FH to make sure the points were shared at Würth völlurinn.

The draw ensured Fylkir put a stop to their losing run, having lost their previous two fixtures, but also means they've taken three points from the last five matches.

Fylkir are now 8th out of the 12 teams in the Pepsi Max Division and face HK on Sunday. HK (Handknattleiksfélag Kópavogs) are in 9th place, one point behind Kolbeinn's team.
