25. april 2015, 18:00

Mål (highlights her!):
> 0-1 (32) A. Søderlund
Så sitter den for gjestene! Strandberg header corneren i tverrliggeren, men returen går rett på Søderlund – som har en enkel jobb med å sette inn 0-1!

0-2 (48) T. Mikkelsen 
Og der er 0-2 et faktum! Mikkelsen løper og løper mot mål, men blir aldri stoppet. Og når han kommer innenfor 16-meteren plasserer han ballen kontrollert i det lengste hjørnet!

> 1-2 (77) S. Abdullahi
Så kommer reduseringen! Haugen slår perfekt inn fra venstre og finner innbytter Abdullahi i boksen. Han header mesterlig ballen inn i det venstre krysset! Nå er det kamp igjen.

1-3 (82) L. Henderson 
Mike Jensen drar seg inn i feltet og legger skrått ut til skotten Henderson. Og på bursdagen sin sender han gjestene opp i tomålsledelse. Er kampen avgjort nå, da?

> 1-4 (86) L. Henderson
Så scorer 19-åringen igjen! Han får ballen på 20 meter, tar et par finter og vrir ballen over i det lengste hjørnet! Mannen har vært på banen i seks minutter!


Why “free play” is the best summer school

Most schools across the nation have marked the end of another academic year, and it’s time for summer. Time for kids to bolt for the schoolhouse doors for two long months of play, to explore their neighborhoods and discover the mysteries, treasures, and dramas they have to offer. This childhood idyll will hold true for some children, but for many kids, the coming of summer signals little more than a seasonal shift from one set of scheduled, adult-supervised lessons and activities to another.

Unscheduled, unsupervised, playtime is one of the most valuable educational opportunities we give our children. It is fertile ground; the place where children strengthen social bonds, build emotional maturity, develop cognitive skills, and shore up their physical health. The value of free play, daydreaming, risk-taking, and independent discovery have been much in the news this year, and a new study by psychologists at the University of Colorado reveals just how important these activities are in the development of children’s executive functioning.

Executive function is a broad term for cognitive skills such as…

3. runde
18. april 2015, 18:00

Mål (highlights her!):
> 1-0 (6) T. Mikkelsen (H. Eyjólfsson)
Rosenborg holder trykket oppe etter frisparket. Ballen heades ut, men hjemmelaget får tak i ballen igjen. Plutselig havner den hos Mikkelsen, som setter ballen sikkert i mål fra fem-seks meter. TV-bildene viser at scoringen skulle vært annullert for offside.

> 1-1 (79) P. Kovács (F. Hanin)
Innbytteren gjør det, men ikke på hodet! Hanin kommer seg fri på venstresiden og slår inn til Kovacs som tupper ballen videre i motsatt hjørne.

Oh! The Places You’ll Go!

(by the incomparable Dr. Seuss)

Today is your day.
You’re off to Great Places!
You’re off and away!

You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself any direction you choose.
You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And
YOU are the guy who’ll decide where to go.

You’ll look up and down streets. Look’em over with care.
About some you will say, “I don’t choose to go there.”
With your head full of brains and your shoes full of feet,
you’re too smart to go down a not-so-good street.

And you may not find any you’ll want to go down. In that
case, of course, you’ll head straight out of town. It’s
opener there in the wide open air.

Out there things can happen and frequently do to people
as brainy and footsy as you.

And when things start to happen, don’t worry. Don’t
stew. Just go right along. You’ll start happening too.

Oh! The Places You’ll Go!

You’ll be on your way up!
You’ll be seeing great sights!
You’ll join the high fliers who soar to high heights.

You won’t lag behind, because you’ll have the speed.
You’ll pass the whole gang and you’ll soon take the lead.
Wherever you fly, you’ll be best of the best. Wherever
you go, you will top all the rest.

Except when you don’t.
Because, sometimes, you won’t.

I’m sorry to say so but, sadly, it’s true that Bang-ups and
Hang-ups can happen to you.

You can get all hung up in a prickle-ly perch. And your
gang will fly on. You’ll be left in a Lurch.

You’ll come down from the Lurch with an unpleasant
bump. And the chances are, then, that you’ll be in a

And when you’re in a Slump, you’re not in for much fun.
Un-slumping yourself is not easily done.

You will come to a place where the streets are not
marked. Some windows are lighted. But mostly they’re
darked. A place you could sprain both your elbow and
chin! Do you dare to stay out? Do you dare to go in? How
much can you lose? How much can you win?

And if you go in, should you turn left or right…or right-and-three-quarters? Or, maybe, not quite? Or go around
back and sneak in from behind? Simple it’s not, I’m
afraid you will find, for a mind-maker-upper to make up
his mind.

You can get so confused that you’ll start in to race down
long wiggled roads at a break-necking pace and grind on
for miles across weirdish wild space, headed, I fear,
toward a most useless place.

The Waiting Place…for people just waiting.

Waiting for a train to go or a bus to come, or a plane to go
or the mail to come, or the rain to go or the phone to ring,
or the snow to snow or waiting around for a Yes or No or
waiting for their hair to grow. Everyone is just waiting.

Waiting for the fish to bite or waiting for wind to fly a
kite or waiting around for Friday night or waiting,
perhaps, for their Uncle Jake or a pot to boil, or a Better
Break or a string of pearls, or a pair of pants or a wig with
curls, or Another Chance. Everyone is just waiting.

No! That’s not for you!
Somehow you’ll escape all that waiting and staying.
You’ll find the bright places where Boom Bands are
playing. With banner flip-flapping, once more you’ll ride
high! Ready for anything under the sky. Ready because
you’re that kind of a guy!

Oh, the places you’ll go! There is fun to be done! There
are points to be scored. There are games to be won. And
the magical things you can do with that ball will make
you the winning-est winner of all. Fame! You’ll be
famous as famous can be, with the whole wide world
watching you win on TV.

Except when they don’t. Because, sometimes, they won’t.

I’m afraid that some times you’ll play lonely games too.
Games you can’t win „cause you’ll play against you.

All Alone!
Whether you like it or not, Alone will be something you’ll
be quite a lot.

And when you’re alone, there’s a very good chance you’ll
meet things that scare you right out of your pants. There
are some, down the road between hither and yon, that can
scare you so much you won’t want to go on.

But on you will go though the weather be foul. On you
will go though your enemies prowl. On you will go
though the Hakken-Kraks howl. Onward up many a
frightening creek, though your arms may get sore and
your sneakers may leak. On and on you will hike. And I
know you’ll hike far and face up to your problems
whatever they are.

You’ll get mixed up, of course, as you already know.
You’ll get mixed up with many strange birds as you go.
So be sure when you step. Step with care and great tact
and remember that Life’s a Great Balancing Act. Just
never forget to be dexterous and deft. And never mix up
your right foot with your left.

And will you succeed?
Yes! You will, indeed!
(98 and ¾ percent guaranteed.)

Kid, you’ll move mountains!
So…be your name Buxbaum or Bixby or Bray or
Mordecai Ale Van Allen O’Shea, you’re off to Great

Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting.
So…get on your way!
