Many thought in advance that Drammen would have an easy task for the high-flying Tromsø side, who came off the back of a 4-1 win in Molde, but Strømsgodst held off the heavy Tromsø pressure at times and shocked the northern side in the final minutes.
Marco Vargil (19 years old) was left alone on the field and scored his first goal in the Premier League. The goal was also the only one of the match.
– He’s completely sick. I’m not used to celebrating goals. I don’t know what to say, this is what the scorer said to Channel 2 immediately after the end of the match.
The loss also represents a small crisis for Tromsø when it comes to the medal match. After today’s result, they are now third in the table. Brann did the job at home to Odd earlier on Sunday and now sit in second place, one point behind Tromsø. The Vikings are in fourth place, two points behind Tromsø.

Bodø/Glimt are now level as league champions, but can still be outdone on goal difference. However, a bit of sense is needed for the Norwegian Football League champions in 2023 to be named something other than Bodø/Glimt.
There are three matches remaining in this year’s Elite League. Glimt is nine points ahead of Brann and has a 20-goal better goal difference than Bergens.
Tromsø’s opportunities are great
Tromsø were the favorites heading into the match at the Rumsa Arena and created several great chances in the early stages.
Top scorer Vegard Erlen had several great chances, but he did not control his shooting.

On the eve of half-time, Niklas Westerlund had a good chance when he sneaked in at the back post, but the Dane’s header went wide.
Strømsgodset, on the other hand, struggled to create chances.
The winner of the match is 19 years old
However, the visitors’ level rose in the second half.
After several dangerous visits to the Tromsø penalty area, Erik Oland Andersen hit the crossbar from a corner kick in the 55th minute.
Complete cheers for the historic upgrade.
After Strömsgodset’s scare, it was Tromsø who tightened their grip on the game once again. Lasse Nordås had a huge chance at the end of the first half, but the ball crept wide of the post.
But ten minutes from time, it was Strømsgodset who found the net when Marco Vargi scored the winner for the visitors.
The result moved Tromsø to third place in the table.
