A 3-1 victory over Skodje IL in the bright sunshine of an Oslo afternoon gave Strindheim IL a perfect tournament campaign – with 8 wins from 8 games.

It was the second time the two sides had met this week – Strindheim taking the honours in the Group Stage with a 2-0 victory.  On the balance of play today it was a thoroughly deserved repeat performance.


However, Skodje opened the scoring against the run of play with 10 minutes on the clock.  A defensive error in the left corner led to a ball being played across the box.  A smart finish from outside the penalty are high into the Strindheim net set the cat amongst the pigeons.

Strindheim did not let this setback faze them – as they were well in control of affairs up until that point.  A short word from the sidelines from their head coach saw them ramp up the pressure on the opposition.

A minute before halftime – they were back on level terms.  A freekick from halfway was driven in towards the Skjold net by Julia Welde – leaving goalkeeper Tuva Leite helpless as the ball flew past her to send the teams to the sidelines at halftime tied at 1-1.


The second half continued in much the same vein with Strindheim well on top of matters.

8 minutes into the second half – they took the lead with a well taken solo goal from Sara Andersen, beating the goalkeeper low to her right with a well placed strike from distance.

Skjold tried desperately to save the game – but were shut down by an impressive defensive and midfield performance from their opponents from Trøndelag.

Four minutes from time – the game was settled once and for all.  Emma Tangstad was sent clear with a well weighted pass – resulting in another low finish into the corner past a despairing Leite.
