Sport: With twenty minutes left on the clock, Mame Mor Ndiaye rose to the air and scored 1-0 for the hosts. However, that lead did not last long, and from an oblique angle Simon Amin hammered in 1-1.

A few minutes later, Eman Markovic grabbed the ball from YMCA’s defenders, and in front of the goal he certainly scored 2-1. However, former national team player Haitam Aleesami ensured an equalization to 2-2.

With just over ten minutes left, YMCA was a few millimeters from 3-2, but instead it was Sandefjord who took the lead. Shortly before the end, however, Simen Hestnes ensured that the raucous match ended 3-3.

Sandefjord thus climbs to nine points. YMCA, for its part, has continued to win on its own turf this season.

– It is hair-raising on our part. Everything is done right. We take the lead with one more man. On the first late goal, Emil (Ødegaard, goalkeeper) has to take huge criticism. It doesn’t work when we have to manage such matches. It is catastrophic. It boils so violently with what we delivered. We take one point, but it is unsustainable, said Moesgaard.

After a controlled opening to the match, the hosts had the first big chance at Ekeberg. Petter Nosa Dahl wandered down the left side before finding Johannes Hummelvoll Nuñez in front of goal. The striker’s finish was stopped by Hugo Keto.

Just over twenty minutes into the match, Nosa Dahl hit the target after an inward-swinging free kick.

– A chance for adventure, said TV 2’s football expert Marius Skjelbæk about the YMCA’s opportunity.

– In connection with the first yellow card, he must have two free kicks first. He is held back by two players. If Kristiansen got a straight red, then it doesn’t matter. The first late goal is a bit annoying, but we score three goals with ten men. It is good. Nevertheless, it will be a slight setback when we lead 3-2, said Sandefjord coach Hans Erik Ødegaard.

Five minutes before the break, Svindland had a great chance at an open goal, but Sandefjord once again escaped with a scare.

– That’s how it is. We have to show character, and then we will win this match, said Sandefjord assistant Andreas Tegström to TV 2 during the break.

After the page change, there were a total of six netizens at Ekeberg.

The last time the teams met was back in the 1st division in 2019. It also ended 3-3.

After the match, YMCA coach Johannes Moesgaard was very disappointed.

Ten minutes before the break, YMCA’s Stian Kristiansen lost the ball in a dangerous position, and the centre-back grabbed the left leg of an onrushing Remi André Svindland. Kristiansen was thus given his marching orders, and on the subsequent free kick the hosts hit the post again. Just before the expulsion, Kristiansen was down with a head injury.
