Dag-Eilev Fagermo had to watch his men rush in for the club he led for 12 seasons.
Vålerenga, Stabæk and Mjøndalen were all eliminated from the cup in the third round on Wednesday night. In addition, Kristiansund also smokes after losing to YMCA Oslo.
Vålerenga met Elite Series fellow Odd at home at the Intility Arena. Skien’s guests have already come forward after 20 minutes of play by Milan Jevtovic.
In the second half, it was time to score two quick goals from Sander Svendsen. The attacking player scored in the 58th and 60th minutes and decided the match.
Vålerenga also had their chances while leveling, but Dag-Eilev Fagermo’s men couldn’t find the net masks and so could forget about the trophy’s success.
For Mjøndalen, it was also a tough day working away against Start in Kristiansund.
The hosts took the lead through Mikael Ogland in the 33rd minute, while Wiggard Hansen’s men responded quickly and tied 1-1 after Isaac Toom scored them.
But in the second half, it was mostly about the hosts when it came to netsus. Martin Ramsland maintained a 2-1 lead, while Markovic’s faith increased shortly thereafter.
Sander Schukvist scored the stars’ fourth goal of the evening and ensured the Southerners broke through within ten minutes of the second half.
The use of Magnus Bækken was reduced to little before the end in Kristiansand.
Big loss for Stabeck
Stabæk faced stiff opposition when they played away against Strømsgodset and there was a loss of support for the Bears. The estate won 5-1 and is in the fourth round.
It was still Stabæk who opened better and actually advanced five minutes later. Sturla Ottesen was behind the goal for the away team.
In the end, the hosts woke up and Halldor Steinvik equalized after 13 minutes. Just before the break, Gustav Walsvik arranged for the team’s cheers when he scored 2-1.
In the second half, Drammen was instrumental and won by a solid margin. Jordan Atta Al-Qadri became the second top player with three goals.
The 21-year-old, on loan from Belgium’s Lommel SK, has been on the field for the second time since joining the club and has shown he can be a useful man this fall.
Among the other Eliteserie teams in action on Wednesday night, Bodø/Glimt, Brann, Molde and Sarpsborg 08 advanced to the next round.
Rosenborg meets the Vikings later Wednesday night.
