For the first time since the injury he sustained in the away game against Raufoss at the end of May, Victor Grodås was on the pitch in a match. He completed one inning without any problems, and is getting closer to being cleared to play again in the A team as well.
The KIL recruits ruled a lot at Gjemselund, but it was the visitors who were to get the first shot. In the 12th minute they ended up in the lead on a penalty kick.
But the home team fought back, and Faaberg’s lead did not last long.
Nikolai Ronaldo Bull Jørgensen fixed the balance with a fine goal in the 20th minute, after a great assist by Marius Damhaug.
KIL continued to control the events, and the lead was in the box after just over half an hour. Odin Høiland’s finish was beautiful and effective.
A few minutes before the break, it hit the crossbar when Christian Øien Damhaug attempted a free kick, but the same man was to get on the scoresheet before the break anyway. Bull Jørgensen was played well through and put to the ground by the keeper, and on the last kick of the ball in half number one, big brother Damhaug put the penalty safely into the net.
After the break, KIL mostly had good control of the match, and created a number of chances that could have given them a bigger lead. Sometimes there was a little lack of precision in the last pass, and other times the finishes hit outside the box.
Right after coach Jørn Ole Korslund made it clear that he was not completely satisfied with how the game developed, KIL turned it up a notch. With a lovely turn and subsequent stabs from Marius Øyen, Erlend Busk Nilsson could increase to 4-1 alone with the Faaberg goalkeeper.
With Lillehammer’s 3-0 victory over second-placed Nybergsund, KIL 2 gained an ever-small gap at the top of the table.
