Sport: With the victory, the league runners-up bounced back after the loss to Brann last weekend and narrowed the gap to league leader Vålerenga to three points.

Åsane, who are second to last in the table, had not traveled to Trondheim to play defence. The Bergens had probably as many scoring chances as RBK.

After games and chances, they might also have deserved a point.

Nevertheless, the home team took the lead when Mathilde Rogde made it 1-0 with a finish from close range after an Åsane defender missed a clearance. Just before, the visitors had a finish off the crossbar.

Åsane equalized on a cheeky attack when the captain Milena Kokosz took the ball up and surprisingly got very good time against a backing RBK defence. She put the ball in the goal after 15 minutes of play.

After just over an hour of play, Rosenborg received a penalty when Karen Vistnes somewhat clumsily hooked Camilla Linberg inside the box. Elin Sørum was a sure executor from the eleven-meter mark.

Seven minutes had passed when Marie Moen Preus had given the “home team” 1-0. Lyn chased an equaliser, and it only came towards the end of the half through Jenny Røsholm Olsen.

The referee believed that Kolbotn captain Emma Braut Brunes caused a penalty after just over an hour had been played. She protested strongly and thought Olsen had tripped over her legs. Olsen scored his second goal of the day for a 2-1 lead.

Preus also scored two goals in the match when she equalized at 2-2 after 77 minutes.

The decision came after half an hour of play.

Arna-Bjørnar and Brann end the series round with a derby match from 16.45.

Kolbotn was hunting for its second win of the season when Lyn visited the Grorud grass. It ended 2-2 after the teams had taken the lead once each in the match.

Iris Omarsdottir was the match winner when Stabæk beat Røa 1-0. She struck with her seventh goal of the season.
