The top draw between Kolbotn and Avaldsnes was postponed due to the pitch at the Sofiemyr Stadium, and Avaldsnes coach John Arne Riise called him all amateurs.

– The match between Kolbotn and Avaldsnes had been called off when the surface at Sofiemyr was rejected by delegates and judges… after being approved on Monday, Toppserien wrote on Twitter.
Avaldsnes coach John Arne Riise was unimpressed with his handling, and criticized the Norwegian Football Association (NFF) for not making a better decision on Monday.
– Amateur, he wrote on Instagram about handling associations.
VG has tried to contact competition director Nils Fisketjønn at NFF about the case, so far to no avail.
– Untenable and impossible to play football here. I also know that this isn’t Kolbotn’s fault, it’s NFF. It was an inspection here on Monday. Kolbotn have three things they need to improve on, and they’ve done it to the best of their ability, John Arne Riise told stlandets Blad.
Referee Mohammad Hafezi confirmed to the same newspaper that he made the decision to postpone the match for the safety of the players.
Six out of six
The other match, however, had to start as planned, and against Lyn, it took Brann more than 80 minutes to get the hole.
Substitute Ingrid Ryland sent Brann ahead eight minutes from the end and a minute of extra time was doubled for Brann by Elisabeth Terland.
The latter saw that goalkeeper Lyn was far away and put the ball into the net from the center circle.
A 2-0 win meant Brann maintained his winning streak – which is now six wins out of six possible.
– Gravity picks it up from time to time. Lyn was with us for a long time, but didn’t make it for 90 minutes. There is also a difference in quality, says coach Brann Alexander Straus Bergens Tidende.
The 17-year-old made his debut
Rosenborg, for their part, picked up their fifth win of the season 3-0 over Røa, with all the goals in the first half. Sara Kanutte Fornes opened the ball with a dream score, before Jøsendal and Anna Lang’s Emilie Marie Joramo completed Trøndelag’s dominance.
17-year-old Vilde Hulaas Grøseth made his debut in the whites with ten minutes remaining, according to coach Stenar Lein as they have a bit of a mess. Grøseth’s great talent impressed the coach.
– That he got his debut and did well even if he was thrown into it, is very positive. This shows that he is growing well under squad A, says Lein eavisen’s address.
Stabæk beat Arna-Bjørnar 2-1, while the local finish between LSK Women and Vålerenga was a one-sided affair: Olaug Tvedten sent Vlerenga ahead after the quarter with a cash finish, before Elise Thorsnes ended a fine attack just before the break to make it 2-0.
Dejana Stefanovic made it 3-0 when she capitalized on a weak gap early in the second half.
As such, Vålerenga also stand with six wins and 18 points in the first six matches – and meet Brann for the final clash on May 8.
