their season at home to last years local champions in 7-a-side, Muskel.
A strengthen Vaulen C should soon show themselves too strong for the team
from Sandnes. Manager Frode Lima made a tactical masterpiece when he gave
trust to Jostein Jensen as striker. Jensen didn't took long to send the
home team in the lead. Vaulen C dominated the game, but Muskel should anyhow
get a goal after a bit poor keeper play. Paul Tore Or fired it in for Muskel
from 15 meters.
But just before
half-time Pål Særvoll gave Vaulen the lead again. After the
break Vaulen boss Lima took none chances and changed keeper.
at the back the Vaulen players managed to untie themselves more and Arnfinn
Kleven became the great player of the half. Kleven made it 3-1, before
Fredrik Eriksen and Poddi Olsen made it four and five. Then it was time
for Kleven show, he added it to 6-1 before he completed his hat-trick.
With that could he take the match ball with him home as a souvenir. After
this demonstration of power Vaulen C is likely to be found in the top also

A knee injured Eike had to be helped off by Ahlstrand Pedersen and Svein
Øksnevad, but after the game he managed to limp around at his own.
Vaulen was really
playing well now as Vedavåg had understood that there was nothing
to get from the game. Inge Martin Hinna came closest, with his pace he
managed to snap up a pass trough. Alone with the goalie he decided to shoot,
but unfortunately the ball shaved the outside of the post.

was a really good game by Vaulen. Especially the second half was very entertaining,
despite the Beachboys was playing against the powers of the nature with
a low sun in their face and a slight wind against them. The whole team
was steady. Jarle Eike have already been mentioned, but also Erik "Conan

the others with him.

mice! Vaulen welcomed league leaders Vedavåg on their artificial
pitch at Hinna last evening. Before the game this would had been seemed
on as an even battle, but it was in fact the cats play with the mice. In
reality the game never became thrilling, and Alexander Landsnes opened
the party with a well placed shot after 20 minutes in the first half. Vaulen
had several big chances to make the lead bigger, but failed to do so in
the first half. After the break many thought Vedavåg should get help
from the wind and managed to get into the game that way. But a very good

Vaulen continued their race and the players was at times standing in queue
to score. Vedavåg's players became more and more frustrating in the
end and that led into several nasty challenges in the end. Vedavåg
must feel lucky that they ended the game with 11 men. The last goal was
putted in from the chalk point by Inge Martin "Inges" Hinna, after Anders
Idsø had been putted down in the box. Vaulen showed another time

explains the loss. "The players failed to handle the difficult astro pitch.
It favored the home team. But honestly, it was a deserved win to Vaulen.
We played poor."
Aftenblad: "Vedavåg soon came down to earth after their great
season premiere when they won 7-0 over Buøy. A spirited and hard

Vaulen's 4-0 win over the fishermen from Karmøy this weekend have
assistant boss Svein Øksnevad told his players and fans to get their
feets back to the ground again. The club shouldn't takes easy on the Tasta
game as the three points against league favorites Vedavåg will not

"I must say this to all of you," Øksnevad

game Vaulen was alone on the top of the table with maximal six points.
"Now we must keep our feets to the ground. We will meet a Tasta team that
is looking for revenge on Wednesday. So we will need to recharge until
then," warns Øksi.
Vaulen's technical players have
taken the advantage of the home pitch, against Tasta it will be a diffrent
world. "With the standard of the pitch on Tasta, it will be hard to play
as well as we did yesterday, but I think we can handle that as well," explain
Vaulen have now kept the goal clean

Tasta is a
team that is predicted in the lower parts of the 3. division table. Their
expirenced manager duo Erik Tangen and Ingve Bøe haven't had success
in the preseason after the Hammer Larsen duo Stig and Knut left them after
last season where Tasta ended as number seven. Tasta have however strengthed
their team with the likes of Jan Håstø (Sandnes), Tallat Abunima
(Vardeneset) and Thomas Justad (Vidar) but there is quality diffrences
inside the team. So far this season have it been various results. They
lost 2-0 against Hundvåg in the cup, but won at home to Ulf Sandnes
in their league premiere. However they lost 7-1 to Buøy last time,
according to the reports was Tasta then frightenly weak. Experts will say
that Tasta is a ineffective team that will win their points by fighting
at home on their bumpy stadium. However they are well trained and should
give the league leaders a real fight.
Vaulen lost 2-5 at home to Tasta in their nervous 3. division debut. Vaulen
also lost away to Tasta 3-4 and should be looking for revenge now.

2-2 away to Høle this warm evening with assistant boss Svein Øksnevad

at the club house
A, B and C team will this weekend arrange a "barbeque evening" for players,
managers and the staff around the senior teams. The party will find place
in the club house and in the green garden on Friday evening.
The old house
is likely to be demolished just before the New Year as the club is to build
a new club house close to Vaulenbanen. Vaulenhuset that Vaulen got from
the local councils several decades ago for a symbolic fee of 1 krone. So
this will be a good oppurtunity to celebrate the club that at the moment
are amongst the top clubs in the town, but also an old house with a lot
of good memories.
So will this be
the absolute last party? Will Tore come this time after he read the oh
so realistic detective novel last easter on this site..? Will Vaulen's
famous band Ordrenekt have a gig? Questions will be answered on Friday.
The real fun start after the B-team game, but it's allowed to come earlier.
information from the club on the upgrade of Vaulenbanen told that wardrobes
and pyloon lights was to be installed this summer. The club also hope to
get a new club house realised in the autumn. In a document dated 10. March

achieved to get the football stadium regulated, and even been granted money
for pylon light and wardrobes on Vaulenbanen. This will be financed by
the council. The club house will be paid by the club at their own. We will
cover some of the expenses with sponsorships deals from the industry,"

FIRST HALF Vaulen's aim
for this game was simple; to get three points. After about 40 seconds was

After this Tasta
had their best period in the game; they won the duels and was far more
aggressive. But Tasta wasn't able to keep up their start, Vaulen should
therefor get more and more control. It therefor came like no surprise when
Landnes fighted in the equalizer after 20. minutes.
The rest of
the half was dominated by long balls and not much delicate play.
HALF The second
half should be better from Vaulen. Tasta was revealed! While Tasta continued
with their hopeless long passes, Vaulen managed to get more structure on
their play. This led into several chances. The leading goal came in the
60. minute on a penalty from Inges Hinna; after Alex had been put
down by the keeper.
In the 75.
minute Pedro passed Ekholdt beautiful trough. Super sub Eirik Ekholdt
used his calm and sent Vaulen in a 3-1 lead! In the rest of the game Vaulen
had full control and cruised home three well deserved points.
Also in this
game there was much rotation with players coming out and, and it was easy
to loose the control. Eirik Ekholdt got about 20 minutes all together.

the sites guestbook.
like Tasta takes to simple metods when the ball isn't running their way,
Vaulen always want to entertain with good football with. "It was nice to
see that Tasta didn't managed to get something with their 'Wimbledon' style.
You got to search for a while to find so many long balls and bad tackles,"
said the Leeds United fan.
"We were, as Tore

think that all of the teams will be doing all they can to take the league
leaders. On Tuesday Vaulen will meet Ulf Sandnes in a six pointer in the
top of the table.
"Now we must
manage to hold our consentration further. There will be more and more teams
that will take Vaulen 'serious' now, and that wants to take the league
leaders. I hope the players keep up their spirit, and I'm already looking
forward to next game," said Svein that turns 40 in September.
B got the blues
B 2 - 5 Suldal Vaulen B took
an early lead on Friday evening, but after lack of consentration in Vaulen's
defense it was Suldal that took home a 5-2 win in the end. Goalscorers
for Vaulen were Eirik Ekholdt and Christian Titlestad (pictured). Without
the mistakes Vaulen played an equal game, but tired players meant many
changes in and out such that it was hard to find each others on Hinna grus

that the mood for next game away to Figgjo B on 18. May should be in order.
will meet Ulf Sandnes on Tuesday in a six pointer between number one and
two on the table. Manager Tore Haugvaldstad hope the run continues, but
Vaulen haven't changed their goal that is to establish themselves in the
division. "We have got an terrific start of the season, but we don't aim
higher than around the middle of the table," said Tore Haugvaldstad. Much
of the secret behind Vaulen's success this season have been their great
defense in front of a talented goalie. The stat tell that they so far only
have let in one goal.
While they have
scored 8, of them 75% in the second half. Previous points have been brought
home after technical play, but they can also show muscles when needed.
Versus Tasta reports told that they showed a good physic and stayer ability
and won on that.
Sandnes was founded in 1911 and was rated amongst the best teams in Norway
in the late 30's, as they were playing in Norgesserien. Since then they
have been the best club in Sandnes and brought forward players as Gunnar
Aase and Bjørn Berland. Then in 1997 they was replaced by Sandnes
FK in the division system. Sandnes FK was a connection between all the
clubs in Sandnes. They eyed 1. division football in their town, but it
shouldn't be that easy. This meant that Ulf had to start again, and after
a break they joined the 6. division in 1998. In 2001 they was back in the
3.rd division, and this season Ulf and Sandnes FK play at the same division
level. Ulf have established themselves in the 3. division now and they
are likely to fight for promotion this season.
Arne Bø Pedersen
have a mixture of old players that wasn't interested in a move to Sandnes
FK and many exciting talents from their Youth set up. It seems like they
have managed to compose a good team this season as they at the moment are
number two on the table. Last season Vaulen won 5-2 at home, after Inge
Martin Hinna netted twice in addition to goals from Alexander Landsnes,
Anders Idsø and an own goal. In the away meeting it ended 0-0, with
second half substitute Sverre Møllegaard coming closest hitting
record at home is strong as they haven't lost at home since September in
2001. Be sure to support the players on Tuesday, the game kick off 19.00
on Tuesday at Hinnabanen.
Ole Bjørn Bredesen can miss some points in Haugesund Avis this summer
as he is amongst the last 100 candidates for reality show Robinsonekspedisjonen.
The hairy winger is the only one from Stavanger that have advanced to the

Ulf have taken home two of three games we think the home team will manage
to do it once more," writes Oskar Holter in Rogalands Avis and put the

others several dousin of corners, the deserved equalizer came. Jan Tore

Vaulen is well prepared before the game away to Buøy, they have
now included some trainings at gras at Shellbanen and should be used to
the surface that expect them at Buøy stadion on Tuesday. The manager
team is likely to have more alternatives to choose from now. Jan Egil Salvesen
and Stein Ivar Andersen was injured last time, but they will perhaps reach
this game. Meanwhile will Jarle Eike try again on Wednesday or Thursday,
he will hope to reach the Grannekam game at Friday.

Jarle Eike still out injured, Pedro Salgado was moved back in midfield.
While Eirik Ekholdt got the chance up front again. DJ that scored three
goals for the Reserves last time! Meanwhile was both Andersen and Salvesen
back again after missing last game with thigh injuries. Starting in a 4-4-2
formation the team elsewhere was as expected. On the bench was Jone Holgersen,
Ole Bjørn Bredesen and Kjetil Aasland.
HALF Vaulen started
with the ball, as Buøy decided to change side and get the wind in
their back in the first half. With the wind Buøy should manage to
make some pressure. Their long passes was luckily not that dangerous, as
most of them seemed to be gone by the wind. In fact Vaulen created most
of Buøy chances, defensive mistakes lead into several chances and
nerve problems amongst the Vaulen fans. However Beachboys managed to get
away with it by having the fastest players.
many chances for Vaulen in the first half. A Idsø corner was well
met by strong Alexander Landsnes, but his header went over. Also Hinna
had a big chance in the middle of the half, he came trough but was pressed
to shot with his left foot. The ball slide off his foot and went well wide.
The last part of the first half was a nightmare by Vaulen that was lucky
to keep the goal clean. The distance between the defense and midfield became
to big as the players went tired on the soft surface. The management duo
decided to fall back 10 meters only to try and keep it to half time.

Erik A. Pedersen
But as Buøy
was going forward, Hinna got more room to run in. Inges, that was very
good today, won an equal fight inside the box. Being the strongest he won
the duel and was free with the Buøy 'keeper. But the referee was
a coward, and blew for the defending team despite Buøy's defender
pulled and pushed with his hands just as much as the Vaulen player.
SECOND HALF With the wind
in the back Vaulen managed to push more forward in the second half. At
one of many free kicks in the game Anders Idsø loaded from 25 meters
at the left side of goal. His good shot towards the nearest top corner
just shaved the bar. After about an hour Erik Hildén picked up a
yellow card for a late challenge. Hildén's second booking for the
Ekholdt was changed with Kjetil Aasland, with about 25. minutes to go.
The big defender got the chance up front, being big and strong he should
change the game for Vaulen. He started very well. As he almost picked up
a rebound on a shot on his first involvement in the game. On the following
corner from the right, Aasland showed his strength heading it home
on the second post! Buøy had their greatest chance on a thunder
shot that went in the bar and down on the line. Luckily for Vaulen the
referee blew for offside on the rebound, as three Buøy players was
ready to put it in. We all praised the referee's way of looking at the
things then. Buøy was pressing forward after the goal, but Tommen
was very steady in goal despite the strong wind.
players was picking up several yellow cards through the game, but it should
had been even more. With a quarter to go Buøy was down to 10 men
after one of their strikers pick up his second for the day after kicking
the ball away after a offside decision.
With 10 minutes
to go Vaulen have a free kick from the middle of the pitch. Jan Egil
Salvesen steps up, but the long pass goes straight against the keeper.
However the keeper miss to collect the ball and the 45 meters shot goes
straight into the net!
We all though
it was 3-0 when the Buøy goalie gave away a rebound on a Vaulen
shot, Aasland snapped the ball and rounded the goalie, but the referee
once again blew for offside on the player picking up the rebound. Eirik
Ekholdt got the five last minutes as well for Alexander Landsnes that struggled
with a cramp.
So 2-0 it
was to be, flowers must go to all the players and management, winning away
at Buøy is seemed on as a very hard task. Also credit to Vaulen's
traveling supporters! According to the speaker it were 205 people in the
crowd, of them was at least a third supporting Vaulen.
Pedro Salgado had the moment of the game with a fantastic "back-heel-to-myself-trick",
by coincidence "El Matador" did it just in front of all the Beachboys fans.
Vaulen boss Tore Haugvaldstad was very pleased on Tuesday after his team
had won 2-0 away to Buøy. This season have Vaulen conceded goals
only per 225. minute against every 32. minute last season. "It was strong
to keep the goal clean once again," praised Haugvaldstad in Stavanger Aftenblad.
"We have now only let in two goals in our five first games."
different skills well, meanwhile as the group of players enjoy themselves
both on and off the pitch. "It's without doubt the good mixture of player
types that is the main reason behind the good start," said Haugvaldstad.

Looking back at the win yesterday Vaulen assistant Svein Øksnevad
was very pleased to see Aasland get in the opener. "It was a great team
effort. Extra nice it was to see Aasland get in there showing the old striker
Vaulen will meet Grannekam at home. The game will be top against bottom,
but Øksnevad warns on taking to easy on Grannekam. "I see some are
announcing the game on Friday as easy, top against bottom etc., but we
should be aware. I have seen Grannekam myself and they are not that bad
that we can enjoy ourselves to a win. I don't think we can do that against
any team in this group."
"Still I look
down on the table, and I think that can be healthy to do. Now we will have
two good training sessions, I already look forward to Friday," admitted
Looking at the
support Vaulen got on Buøy, Øksnevad will now hope for a
record crowd for the season on Friday. "We must hope that there will come
at least that many Beachboys fans as yesterday. That was fantastic," enthused
Svein. Looking at the team will Vaulen miss their central defender Erik
Gysland due to personal duties.
is a relatively new club it was founded in 1991, when it was fusion by
two clubs - Vindafjord and Ølen. Since then they have been between
the third and fourth division. This season have Grannekam only got one
point, but they have lost many equal games. Harry Skulerud's team is young
and technically, but miss the strength therefor they have often conceded
goals on free kicks and corners this season. Vaulen will perhaps not have
such a big advantage of the astro turf versus Grannekam, as they play on
a similar surface through the whole winter.

(1) 3 - 2 (0) Grannekam The rain started
to fall down only minutes before kick off this Friday night as Vaulen said
welcome to Grannekam. This was top against bottom on the paper, but should
be an equal affair. Vaulen boss Tore Haugvaldstad had made two changes
since last time. Kjetil Aasland replaced Gysland that had valid absence.
While Kleiberg was back again, meaning that Ekholdt was forced to sit on
the imaginary bench. On the bench was Bjarne Hov, Bjørn Helge Husebø,
Ole Bjørn Bredesen, Eirik Ekholdt and the brave and tricky Gitle
HALF Vaulen took
an early lead after 12. minutes. A Salgado shot from the edge of the box
was saved by Grannekam's goalie, Olav Anders Helgevold, with his right
foot, but Jan Tore Kleiberg was awake on the rebound and fired it
It was perhaps
a too easy start as Vaulen lost their initiative, the play soon became
as grey as the weather. Meanwhile the rain started to pour down. The rain
gave associations and the crowd started to talk about fishing a while.
Then Pedro Salgado should get two big chances. First was he played through
in the right channel, he advanced past defenders and the goalie, but he
was blocked just in front of the goal to a corner. Not much longer afterwards
he took a high cross on the volley from 8-10 meters but the shot hitted
the bar and went over! Then it went a bit quiet again, but Grannekam got
a sort of disease as several of them picked up knocks. Probably not a fishy
tactic, but the tempo of the game was at least slowing down.

was not a bad team, they had two very fast forwards that gave Vaulen trouble
on counter attacks. Their most dangerous chance in the first half came
down their left side, he was left alone with no marking and run down the
flank. He passed to the striker in the middle that managed to come alone
with Tom Arne Bø Pedersen in the goal. But the Grannekam striker
sent away a so-called "fourth-division-shot" straight into Tommen's hands.
HALF A tactical
change was made at half time as Pedro Salgado was moved up as striker and
Jan Tore Kleiberg went down in midfield. Kleiby took Anders Idsø's
defensive role, while Idsø got the offensive role. With the move
Vaulen tried to get more runs through the compact Grannekam defense, meanwhile
as the manager dup hoped for more defensive control in the middle. However
the move meant that Vaulen lost a big man in Kleiberg to keep the ball

in the best manner.
minutes Vaulen made their first substitution with Eirik Ekholdt coming
in for Hinna that had picked up a minor knock only minutes before. Grannekam
got a deserved equalizer after 57. minutes. A cross from the right found
Bjørgen unmarked on the first post, heheaded it past
Bø Pedersen that had no chance to save. Vaulen had been very uninspired
at the start of the half, but after the equalizer they luckily managed
to put in a another gear. Vaulen therefor took back the lead only three
minutes later with Anders Idsø. Then after 71. minutes Pedro
Salgado finally got his goal. However came all of Vaulen's goals after
poor defending. With a quarter to go Grannekam reduced the lead on a penalty
from Erik Reistad.
PICK UP A TRICK: Øksnevad try to explain Tore how he used to
catch the ball as goalie for the C-team.
Vaulen should manage to get home three new points. "Today was it only the
points that was warming," said Tore Haugvaldstad after the game. Vaulen
that now have gone eight 3. division games in a row unbeaten including
end of last season will now try to continue their run at home to number
five on the table, Åkra. This game will be played on next Saturday

start for 7-a-side
While the first team is amongst the best local sides in Rogaland, Vaulen
C top their local seven-a-side division together with Morten Abel's Leedalkameratene.
After four games are Vaulen unbeaten, however the level seems to have raised
this season and Vaulen can't take easy on any of the teams in the group.
It all started at home to Muskel where Vaulen became too strong for the
side that won the KM Championship last season. Vaulen didn't stopped before
it was 7-1 after goals from Arnfinn Kleven (3), Pål Særvoll,
Jone Olsen, Fredrik Eriksen and Jostein Jensen. Next up for Frode Lima's
men was away to ambitious Storhaug 2. Despite they used players that was
aiming for 4. division play, they failed to handle with the well trained
Vaulen players. Vaulen finally won 7-4 after goals from Jostein Jensen,
Kjetil Stensland, Frode Lima, Jone Bø, Espen Særvoll, Arnfinn
Kleven and Pål Særvoll. On Tuesday 14. May should the team
get their hardest challenges so far, against a KFUM 2 side with former
Bryne and Viking ace Colin Pritchard Davies in the team.

Vaulen will miss Anders Idsø in their next game against Åkra
as he is traveling to Bergen for a wedding. Though will another midfielder
return in Jarle Eike that now is back from a knee injury. The Beachboys
skipper have missed the last four games, but is likely to take Idsø's
defensive midfielder role on Saturday. Also Erik Gysland will be back again
after he was in a family meeting in Vrådal last weekend. New on the
injury list will be forward Ole Bjørn Bredesen that picked up a
foot injury during the weekend.
Vaulen boss Tore Haugvalstad allowed some of his players to play for Vaulen

likely to start against top team Dirdal on Thursday. The game starts 19.00

are known as an attacking side, but their 3-5-2 formation also gives goals
in the wrong direction. Last season Åkra's player manager Knut Boge
surprised with his team, after they promoted the season before. Players
to look out for is their star striker Rune Warholm and goalie Ståle
Oldeide. Last season Rune scored 27 goals, while he this season have netted
7 goals in three games! Oldeide, that is a veteran with a past in Bryne
and Lyn, missed last game against Buøy (4-3), after he was sent
off in their 1-6 defeat to Ulf, on a game scouts from Vaulen was observed.
Åkra's results this season have been all right, together with Vaulen
are they the only team that have managed to beat Torvastad this season.

B - Dirdal (1) 1 - 1 (1) Vaulen B met
top team Dirdal on Hinna grus at Thursday. With Bjarne Hov and Jone Holgersen
back should Vaulen dominate the game. Reports also tell that Marius Veseth
did his comeback for Vaulen. VZ that have struggled with a knee ligament
problem in the last three years after his first operation was unsuccessful.
Marius have also been studying in Bergen, but will now at least play some
games in the summer. The first half started a bit careful from both teams.
The first 20 minutes were dominated by clearances and long and high passes.
But after numerous of chances should Vaulen's Eirik Ekholdt managed
to break himself through the defense after 35. minutes. With a sensitive
lob he managed to outwit Dirdal's very good keeper Martin Espedal. Ekholdt
got the chance again two minutes later, but for an open goal from five
meters he hit the post. Luckily for Ekholdt the referee wrongly said it
With five minutes
to half time, Øystein Winstnes was near to be the scapegoat. With
his ponytail he almost headed the ball into his own net, but a tiger leap
from Bjarne Hov avoided the equalizer. But after 43. minutes Dirdal got
a fantastic hit, from 25 meters Ole Gilje fired it into the goal
and past an outplayed Hov in the Vaulen goal.
half started with play against one goal. Vaulen's two central midfielders,
Jone Holgersen and Sverre Møllegaard, steered the midfield completely.
With some brilliant breakthrough passes they gave Ekholdt many chances.
But Dirdal's good veteran goalie with nearly 600 appearances for his club
avoided Vaulen from taking back the lead. With a quarter to go came perhaps
the best save at Hinna grus through all time. Head specialist Eirik Ekholdt
met a corner perfect on the first post. Everyone was expecting the goal,
but Espeland managed to reach the top corner and hit it to corner. Vaulen
had several chances in the end, and came closest when Morten Sivertsen
was pulled down in the box by the goalie. But the referee only waved on.
It was therefor to be 1-1, a result Dirdal must be most pleased with. After
all it gets though and close when two top teams meet.
