HALF On Saturday
Vaulen had the chance to get a bigger lead on the table against Åkra,
but instead of samba football it became siesta for the home team that lost
2-4. But it was Vaulen that took the lead at Hinna stadion. A play trough
pass from right full back Jan Erik Ahlstrand Pedersen found Pedro Salgado
on a run, he raided past two players before he found striker partner Inge
Martin Hinna with a brilliant pass. Hinna showed class when he placed
the ball in the longest corner behind an outplayed Ståle Oldeide
in the Åkra goal.
Now the around 60 spectators believed
that Vaulen should confirm the place around their hegemony, but not this
time around. The half hour were played when Morten Vea forced down the
right side, with only the goalie in front of him Vea placed it past
a chance less Tom Arne Bø Pedersen.
What about the Beachboys? After
having surfed on a wave this season they now seemed to had lost the edge.

The players didn't found each others
and there became distant in the team. Åkra on the opposite side got
confidence of the goal and the rolled up attack after attack with their
click-clack football down the sides, only good Vaulen defenders in Salvesen
and Gysland and a good goalie avoided Åkra taking the lead at half
SECOND HALF At half time
Vaulen changed to a 4-3-3 system, meanwhile Ekholdt replaced Hinna. The
fishermen from Karmøy started the half with a shock. A splendid
pass from the midfield found Morten Vea, that elegantly
lobbed the ball over Bø Pedersen in Vaulen's goal.
The goal gave Åkra another
vitamin injection, and when substitute Henning Stava scored on his
first touch after 63. minutes was the game actually over. The same man
was in focus five minutes later. A throw-in found Stava with the back against
the goal, an inpatient Vaulen player gave a little push in the Åkra
player and the referee pointed at the penalty spot. A strict decision by
the referee, that though kept the same line throughout the whole game.
The chubby right full back Knut Boge got the chance from the penalty
spot and found the net to the left of Vaulen's keeper. Inge Martin Hinna
was the man behind Vaulen's biggest chance this period, his shot from outside
the box curled in the post and out in play.
With a 4-1 lead Åkra relaxed
a bit and Vaulen got more initiative in the end. With ten minutes to go
Eirik Ekholdt ran through but was brutally stopped by Oldeide. the referee
answered by handing Åkra's last man a yellow card. It wouldn't had
been anything to say if he had showed the red card in that situation as
Ekholdt was in a clear scoring position. However Vaulen got their goal
of consolation after 87. minutes. Skipper Jarle Eike passed an eminent
inside pass from the middle of the pitch to Stein-Ivar Andersen on the
right winger. Somehow the ball went in a bow over to Eirik Ekholdt that
was ready on the second post. Ekholdt is not the one that need to
be asked twice, after he got the ball he fired it home with his right foot
above the tall Åkra goalie.
Åkra could travel home with
a 4-2 win in the bag, while Tore Haugvaldstad's boys now can see the first
league loss is a fact.

hope Tommen can stay
Vaulen will now seek a permission from the Norwegian military for their
keeper phenomenon Tom Arne Pedersen. He is told to travel to Sessvollmoen,
but Vaulen will do all they can to move his duty locally. The 18 year old
have played all of Vaulen's league games this season, and is seemed on
as an important player in the squad both on and off the pitch. Vaulen have
therefor applied to get Bø Pedersen moved to Madlaleiren instead.
The popular youngster that joined the club from Vidar in front of this
season is not only an important player, he have also been coach for SK
Jarl's U-13 boys team the last two years. Both Jarl and Vaulen will now
hope that they can keep their key man. The Mariero raised starlet will
this summer end his studies at Bryne Vidergående.
Vaulen had invited 'keeper talents in the club for a special training session
this weekend on Vaulen Badeplass. With manager Tore Haugvaldstad as their
coach, there was much to learn for the youngsters as well as getting inspiration
from the former star 'keeper. The former Viking and Bryne player is a resource
to the club, he have a D course and have been coach for several local clubs.
In fact he was linked to the post at Tippeliga side Bryne in the 2001 season.
His talents work have already sent the young first team to the top of the
third division. Hopefully will we see even more results from the Youth
work in some years time. Vaulen Beachboys have got pictures from the 'keeper
Vaulen eye new points when they travel to Kopervik on Saturday. However
will they miss two players due to exams, Jarle Eike and Anders Idsø
are forced to stay at home. Also defender Bjørn Helge Husebø
can't travel to Kopervik due to work, meaning that boss Tore Haugvaldstad
must rotate a bit on the team. Ole Bjørn Bredesen is still on the
injury list, but he have now done some light running. However will new
signing Kim Henriksen from Tasta travel with the team.
done well lately, last Friday they played 1-1 away to Buøy. Last
season KIL managed to survive on defensive cynicism, admits their manager
Bengt Førland. "Every game was like a cup game last autumn. We won
several games 1-0 without entertaining at all. But we managed what we wanted,
and that is now history," said Førland.
Førland was their savior man last season however there have been
conflict inside the the club about the playing system. This season Bengt
wants to attack with a 4-3-3 tactic. "This winter we have almost not trained
defensively. Our focus have been forward on the pitch. We focus on structure
and defined roles to each player," continued the 27 year old. KIL that
play at the fantastic stadium Åsebøen look forward to a good
season. "We as everyone else will struggle with injuries on keyplayers.
Our central line have expirence and I think we can end in top six in the
end," continued the manager that aim for 2. division football in a three
perhaps most known player is Knut Ystaas that was a period in FK Haugesund,
now is he back where it all started as assistant player manager. Kopervik
have though missed important Roger Jakobsen to Vard in front of this season.
Jan Tore Kleiberg and Bjarne Hov can play the game against Kopervik, from
earlier we know that Ole Bjørn Bredesen, Bjørn Helge Husebø,
Jarle Eike and Anders Idsø can't travel with the team. Kleiby will
miss out as he is to work at his house project at Gausel, while Barni will
miss out as he will travel to Biri and look at his horse. Hov is part owner
of several horses. most known is perhaps four year old "Sweet Revenge".
With all the decays will Marius Veseth now be added to the squad that travel
with the coach to Kopervik on Saturday morning. VZ that also is known from
commercials, have trained with the team lately and is rated good
enough despite he miss some fitness after knee problem the last three years.
With several players
missing is it likely that Tore Haugvaldstad now will choose a defensive
tactic. Perhaps 4-5-1 with one of the central defenders Aasland, Salvesen
or Gysland moved up as an anchor in the midfield.
will help Vaulen
plan to build a new stadium in Jåttåvågen near Hinna
stadion and a top class training field nearby. However Viking Director
Bjarne Berntsen tell that Vaulen not can be allowed to play their games
at their modern training facilities. This despite the club is amongst the
best clubs in the district and use Hinna IL's astro turf as their match
arena. "With a move to Jåttåvågen it will be of massive
importance to build a training ground of top quality. This can only be
used by Viking, it's not possible to keep a good enough quality if several
teams should use it," Berntsen told the Vaulen Beachboys site. Viking's
youth set up will stay at Eiganes as today when Viking move away from Stavanger
stadion. But eleven league games with two times 45. minutes a season on
gras seems unlikely for the promising third division side. "A training
ground of gras will not manage more than 10 hours use every week to keep
a top quality," claim the Director. However was Jåttåvågen
chosen by it's football environment.
Here are area
enough for football, Hinna stadion is nearby, meanwhile a new secondary
school with a football set up is planned. Also plans for an indoor hall
is in the early stages. "When it comes to training facilities for other
clubs in this area we are in a good dialog with Hinna Fotball and we will
help them with pushing forward with their meanings regarding the discussion
with Stavanger's council about new training areas for Hinna and Vaulen,"

SECOND HALF Also second
half started well for Vaulen, but the team should idle. Little happened
the next half hour. But then Alexander "Faxe" Landsnes managed a fantastic
volley, from 25. meter that found the opposite top corner. The temperature
on the pitch and in the stands went to the boiling point. An enormous pressure
from Vaulen could had led into an equalizer, but it wasn't to be. Kopervik
took three deserved points. Vaulen traveled from Karmøy without
points, but with the honor. More important than getting points from the
northern part of the county is to take the scalp on Buøy, Tasta,
Randaberg and not at least Vardeneset, that is our next opponent on Hinna
stadion on Thursday at 19.00.
Hildén picked up his third yellow card in the game and will now
be suspended for the next game, but with Øystein Winstnes back Tore
now got options. Also Tommen will miss the game as he will travel away,
meaning that Bjarne Hov will play.

hopes on Vardeneset at Thursday
next opponent is Vardeneset. Norwegian international Erik Nevland's favorite
club. "In the third division is Vardeneset my team," admits the Viking
ace. Vaulen have done well this season, but have now lost twice in a row
before the meeting with Vardeneset. "To be honest I haven't paid so much
attention to Vaulen, but Vaulen have lost lately and that is good for VBK,"
said the 24 year old striker. Nevland have gone the grades in Viking and
have played with some of the Vaulen players there. "I have played together
with Idsø, Landsnes and Ingis, if they still are in Vaulen then,"
said Nevland that also forgot some names in the hurry. Having played for
Manchester United he is the right man to compare David Beckham and Alexander
Landsnes, after Landsnes wonder goal this weekend. "I'm sure Landsnes shoots
harder, but Beckham have a larger precision," Nevland told Vaulen Beachboys.
boss Tore Haugvaldstad had no problems to admit Kopervik was the best team
on Saturday. "It was okay that Kopervik won the game. They played best,"
Haugvalstad told Stavanger Aftenblad.
For the game
against Vardeneset will Vaulen miss Tom Arne Bø Pedersen in goal
as he will be involved in "Russe" celebrations. This mean that Bjarne Hov
will be back in the goal. Else will left full back Erik Hildén miss
the game as he is suspended after three yellow cards this season. Alternatives
can be Øystein Winsnes (pictured) that now goes for a come-back.

He is a clear strength to the team. Also Even Klinkenberg was added to
the team, but the former Viking and Vidar player have been a lot injured
Vardeneset boss Ole Søyland

year. Then Vaulen first won 6-4, and later lost 1-6. "I don't think that
there will be that many goals this year, both team are better in defense

got in new faces, most known are perhaps Jostein Breivik and Asle Nordahl
For Thursday is Even Klinkenberg
likely to miss out. "Even is ill so he is doubtful, but he have missed
games before so that will be no problem." With Even missing Ole is forced
to make a new striker duo. "Trond Jensen and Richard (Enge) are food players
that means a lot. But Richard is far away from the form he had last year."
Despite only two trainings a week
Søyland aim high. "We have as goal to be at least as good as last
Søyland have seen a lot of
Vaulen this season and know what that expects. "I have seen Vaulen three
times this year. One very solid against Buøy. Then the two games
against Sandnes and Åkra that was weak performances. Vaulen is a
good team with many very fine type of players on the team that will do
well. I think it will be an equal game and wish Vaulen well," told Ole.
have Vardeneset been seemed on as a good technical team that was better
to attack than defend, but this season have VBK managed to defend their
goal better. "That Vardeneset is a technical team is true I guess," Vardeneset
fan Kristian Vestbø tell Vaulen Beachboys. "After all it's more
fun to win 4-3 than 1-0. But the defense have been our best part of the
team this season. Assistant coach Gunnar Tjelta have re-educated Svein
Roar Henriksen to central defender this year. A smart move by the man that
is told to be the miracle man from Tasta.

Erik Nevland is a Vardeneset fan, and he will maybe come to the game. "It's

won the POL final this winter, and have done quite well this season. But
the game against Vaulen is not seemed on as easy. "We will be pleased with
one point on a neutral stadium at Hinna. Actually we thought the second
season should be more difficult that it have been, but the quality on the
teams is poor. Vardeneset is actually the best team in the group and they
could had promoted if they really wanted. But then isn't it enough to train
twice a week," said Vestbø.

Eirik Sunde, Vaulen Beachboys (a catastrophe in easy game)
Vaulen C welcomed Kvitsøy on Vaulenbanen last night. On the paper
this seemed as an easy game for Beachboys. Kvitsøy came to Vaulen
with only seven men, but got unexpected help from an eight, referee
(our own) Eirik Sunde!
Vaulen started the game clearly
best and had several big chances. But they didn't managed to get the ball
over the line before in the second half. Vaulen's very good midfielder,
Lie putted the ball in the net. But according to referee Sunde the goalie

Frustrated Vaulen players didn't
managed to get their play going, and Kvitsøy took the lead just
before half time. In second half Vaulen pressed for an equalizer but then
it happened as it always does with counter attacks to the opposite team.
Kvitsøy got two goals in the end. With that Vaulen got their first
loss for the season. Kvitsøy played very good tactically, with five
men in defense, a striker, and then the referee Sunde in the middle. But
in total a deserved win for Kvitsøy.

A chilly breeze
surrounded the local derby between Vaulen and Vardeneset. Beachboys had
made quite a few changes since Saturday. Hov took the number one jersey
with Bø Pedersen away. While a suspended Hildén was replaced
by Aasland on the left full back. In midfield were Jarle Eike and Anders
Idsø back in central positions, meaning that it was time for 4-4-2
again. Landsnes continued at the right side of the midfield while Andersen
was on the left. Hinna and Salgado got the chance up front.
Anders Idsø celebrated his goal with pulling his shirt over his
head and show a t-shirt with a picture of Eirik Sunde's characteristic

to keep the ball best in their team.
really not that many chances to each of the teams in the first half hour.
For Vaulen first Andersen and then Idsø had their chances inside
the box, but Vardeneset came closest with Richard Enge, he ran trough in
the middle and really only had to shot the ball past Hov. But quick Salvesen
showed class as he managed to run it up. Vaulen failed to create much,
therefor Haugvaldstad made his first change after 25. minutes putting in

minutes Vaulen got a free kick. Anders Idsø curled in a wonderful
free kick that found skipper Jarle Eike'shead. The ball
made a bow over the tall keeper, Ulseth, and the ball found the back of
the net to make it 1-0 to Vaulen. But Vaulen should not manage to keep
their lead until half time. A VBK corner from the right found their defender
Kristian Dahl that made it 1-1 with a header from short range.
After the equalizer
there were fueled a lot more of aggression into the game. After a duel
and some wrangling between Ekholdt and their right full back, a punch from
the Vardeneset hit Ekholdt in the face. But the incident happened away
from the ball action and none of the three referees saw the incident. The
Vardeneset player later made an apology to the Vaulen striker.
SECOND HALF One change
was made at half time as Hinna and Ekholdt changed between playing and
being on the bench again. At the start of the half it was back to where
it all started with the ball stucked in the middle of the pitch. Vaulen
had a big chance with Salgado, but alone with the keeper his shot went
wide. After 55. minutes Vardeneset had a lovely shot with their hairy and
tricky right winger that looked just like a football cartoon hero. With
the outside of his wrist he curled the ball just over the bar and Bjarne
Hov. After the hour Vaulen changed their tactics as Landsnes was pulled
into a more central role. Together with Idsø he was in front of
the defensive alibi Eike. Andersen remained on the left winger as Vaulen
played something between a distorted 4-4-2 and 4-3-3. Or perhaps it was
the "diamond" or the "christmas tree" for all I know.
It was Hinna
that had Vaulen's biggest chance in this period, but he missed alone with
the goalie instead he was booked for attack on the goalie. Hinna's second
yellow card this season, meaning that he will be suspended if he get one
more. With a quarter to go Hinna went off for Ekholdt to re-enter the stage.
Also fans favorite Øystein Winsnes should get his season debut at
home only minutes later, as he replaced Aasland on the left full back.
"Winst" should soon send away some great offensive passes to make Vaulen
look more dangerous. Dark clouds was now hanging above Hinna stadion, after
nice sunny weather earlier on the day. Then out of nothing Vaulen gave
away an easy goal. A pass found an unmarked Richard Enge at their
right side, he advanced towards Bjarne Hov. With no mistakes he putted
on the cold shower, 1-2 with ten minutes to go. Now Vaulen really started
to move forward with more and more players and several chances was created
down both sides. Then it was time for Anders Idsø show. He
got the ball around the penalty spot and sent away a driver that went past
the shaved goalie. Idsø's celebration sent all World Cup stars in
the shadow, as the t-shirt under his Vaulen shirt showed Eirik Sunde's
famous finger. All of Vaulen's fans jumped up and down and clapped their
hands, laughed and smiled.

pack his stuff when Winsnes forced down the left side once more, a cross
finally found Pedro Salgado on the "second post", he made no mistakes
and thundered in 3-2! Football is surely entertainment for the people.
The supporters hadn't stopped to dance when the referee blew for full time
only second later, as it was to be three points to Vaulen!
1000: Two lads from Sola was really nervous throughout the game. And
when Pedro Salgado scored they went totally crazy. The 3-2 goal meant a
profit at over 200 000 kroner on Langoddsen. The final whistle came only
seconds after the goal and the lucky winners ran against Pedro and gave
him 2 000 kroner. Pedro was hysterical after the game and even brought
the money with him in the shower. Pedro gave away 1000 kroner for the team
to use later in a pleasant occasion.
Vaulen have now signed another player from Tasta IL. Kim Henriksen joined
Beachboys a month ago, now have also Omar Mohammed Ali decided to leave
the 'sinking ship'. Tasta is second to bottom in Vaulen's division and
there have been frustrations inside the team after only six points in nine

the successive 3-2 win over Vardeneset on Thursday. Kim is characterized
as a technical gifted player with a good eye for the game. The 1978-born
player is a typical defensive anchor in the midfield and is good to distribute
the ball with his good passes. However he miss some tempo. Omar is a offensive
midfielder, but can also be used as striker. He runs a lot, have great
technical skills but is a bit light weighted and miss some at the tactical

Vaulen B tok imot
Åsenkam. på Hinna grus i går kveld. Vaulen stilte med
flere av sine stjerner, deriblant Ole Bjørn Bredesen som var tilbake
etter en skade (uheldig bytur!). Vaulen tok initiativet tidlig og Vaulens
svar på Leo, Stian Lima, dominerte midten fullstendig. Men det var
Vaulens gode høyreback, Gitle, som fant toppscorer Ekholdt med en
nydelig lissepasning. Ekholdt gjorde som han ofte gjør, rundet keeper
og satte ballen i det tomme buret. Vaulen fortsatte kjøret og fem
minutter senere kom Jan Erik Timm stupende inn fra høyre, han møtte
innlegget perfekt og stanget ballen i mål, helt utagbart for keeper.
Dette var for
øvrig goalgetter Timm's første for sesongen (og fjorårets
og året før), men jeg er sikker på at det kommer flere
fra den fronten! Etter dette slapp Vaulen Åsenkam inn i kampen, men
en feberredning av Sindre Jensen hindret scoring. Hvis århundrets
redning kom forrige hjemmekamp, så må dette være tidenes
redning! Jensen var i det umulige hjørnet og det måtte et
lykketreff til for å sette ballen i mål. Fra 30 meter satte
Åsenkam-spilleren ballen i mål i en bue over keeper.

win in the end. "We struggled in a game that was dominated by much duel
play," explain Pedro Salgado to Stavanger Aftenblad. His goal came in extra-time,
and it gave him a 2 000 kroner 'bonus' from some lucky gamblers that earned

in Thailand with Sondre Urban. Else will Erik Hildén be back from
suspension, while Ole Bjørn Bredesen now is back having played for
the Reserves this week.
Reserve team is lead by Asbjørn Helgeland and Bjørn Helge
Olsen. Both with a past in the club. Helgeland was amongst others the man
behind the 2-0 goal versus Viking in FKH's famous win in 1997. 'Rocket'
Olsen was a key player when FKH promoted in 1996. The game will not be
played at Haugesund Stadion, instead Sakkestad gras will be used. This
as the local council don't want to have 3. division games played at their
best stadium, FKH's first team and Vard have the first priority. However
is Sakkestad rated as the second best stadium in the town. With a good
pitch and fine facilities.

Larsen often play for the FKH Reserves.

for that. "A solid game by us. Ulf didn't came to a chance, so good was

is not sure what team they will use against Vaulen. "What team we use against

game called off!
game against Haugesund 2 on Monday have been postponed due to the first
football strike in Norway ever. The player organization NISO haven't managed
to get trough their demands with the clubs and NHO. NFF have therefor decided
that all teams in Tippeligaen and the 1. division not should play their
games, but also Reserve teams to the professional clubs are not allowed
to play. Instead will Vaulen therefor train as normal on Monday.
TABLE LAST 5
With the planned Haugesund game on Monday called of due to strike, is it
now two weeks ago since last Vaulen match. On Thursday is it time for rivals

Tore Kleiberg that build on his house and Alexander Landsnes that is on
vacation in the Far East.
have struggled this season and are currently third from bottom, it seems
like a generation change give them problems. Randaberg used more money
than they could earn in the 2. division, and after the relegation they
were forced to sink their ambition level. But vice chairman in Randaberg,
Morten Bjørkelund, claim that promotion to the division above still
is the goal. "Everybody should be aware of our goal that still are play
in the 2. division. The most easy way would had been to open that wallet
and buy us back, but we have seen others in the division system do that.
This have several places destroyed the effort inside in the club," claimed

Tore Haugvaldstad had made some cosmetic changes on the team since last
game. Bjarne Hov continued in goal, while Øystein Winsnes got his
first start of the season on the left full back. In midfield had Tore decided
to start with Kjetil Aasland in a defensive role with Eike and Idsø
in front of him. Andersen had a more traditional winger role at the left.
Up front was Ekholdt and Salgado.
FIRST HALF Vaulen's three
biggest chances in the first half was all very equal, headers on passes
from the sides. First a cross from the left by Andersen to Salgado, but
he headed high over. Then a precise Ahlstrand Pedersen cross from the right
to Aasland, but the header shouldn't find the net. It was also 0-0 after
the third attempt, this time it was Ekholdt that found Salgado from the
right. His header went just over the bar.

minutes Eirik Ekholdt broke his thumb in a duel with the goalie, Ekholdt
tried to play on with the pain but had to go off ten minutes later. Kim

SECOND HALF Ekholdt was
back in the team after the break, with his right hand covered in sport
tape. Henriksen was back on the bench. After 60. minutes Randaberg took
the lead. Their striker Henning Frode Holm was passed through and
made no mistakes. After the goal Randaberg had an enormous chance after
a corner, luckily the ball finally went out of danger.

was close to double their lead with 20. minutes to go. A good strike from
a Randaberg midfielder had a good direction, but was saved in athletic
manner from Vaulen's kitten in goal, Bjarne Hov.
With 10. minutes
to go Ole Bjørn Bredesen came in for Ekholdt. Meanwhile Haugvaldstad
brought Gysland up front to add some muscles. Minutes later he also took
out Winsnes and threw in Aasland up front. Vaulen now played in an old
fashioned 2-3-5 formation. This created a massive pressure, however the
tactic needed precise passes from the sides something that was of the rare
sort this afternoon. Actually was it Randaberg's goalie that created Vaulen's
biggest chance when he made an indirect free kick from 14 meters on the
six seconds rule. However was the shot from Hinna blocked by a Randaberg
It ended 0-1
and for the first time this season Vaulen left the pitch without having
scored a goal. It was an even game, but Vaulen failed to create big chances.
Vaulen wasn't willing to fight for the points, then it was okay that Randaberg
got the points.
Tore Haugvaldstad is on a one year contract, but Chairman Petter Bjørheim
admits that the club probably will try to continue with the same people
and methods also next year. "We haven't started yet with the process for
2003. That will start in August or September in connection with the budget.
But with the results we got at the moment, there isn't much that indicate
a change from our side. Though is it the football committee that will come
with their recommendations in the end to the board," said the former parliament
member to Vaulen Beachboys.
Vaulen is now
number three on the table, but with one game in hand is promotion still
realistic. Vaulen supporters ask themselves if Vaulen can take the step
up financial. "With promotion we must take what comes along with it. It
will be just as big challenge for the board to manage this as it will be
for the team to eventually qualify for the 2. division," ended Petter Bjørheim.
