Dráttur and SÍ crowned champions in Faroese women’s and men’s national leagues
News from the National Federations

Tórshavn, Faroe Islands, April 16, 2017. A thrilling golden set resulted in SÍ Sørvágur claiming the men’s national league title of the Faroe Islands while Dráttur took the women’s crown in far less dramatic circumstances as the domestic season ended with the respective championship series.

Women’s Final

They had lost last year’s final in a golden set where they had held a massive lead, but this time around, Dráttur’s dominance in this year’s final was never under threat. After an emphatic 3-0 win on Thursday, a lot had to change before KÍF Kollafjørður were going to snatch the title out of Dráttur’s firm grip in the second final on Saturday. Although KÍF did take the second set, Dráttur quickly regrouped and won the match 3-1 to clinch their third national title in history.


1st match: Dráttur vs KÍF 3-0 (25-10, 25-21, 25-19)
2nd match: Dráttur vs KÍF 3-1 (25-22, 19-25, 25-19, 25-23)

Men’s Final

Having lost in straight sets in the first of the two-series final on Thursday, Fleyr Tórshavn needed to win the second encounter against SÍ Sørvágur on Saturday to force a golden set decider. That is just what they did by winning 25-18, 26-24 and 25-22.

In the golden set going to 15, Fleyr took a 6-3 lead, but were reeled in again and went behind 9-12. However, Fleyr won the next five points to take a 14-12 lead to set up two championship points. SÍ were not done yet and they cancelled both match balls; after 14-14 and 15-15, SÍ set up a championship point of their own after a massive block from player-coach Rajko Petrovic. Another winning block followed as SÍ claimed the golden set 17-15 and thereby the Faroese men’s national league title.


1st match: SÍ vs Fleyr 3-0 (25-22, 25-17, 25-22)
2nd match: SÍ vs Fleyr 0-3 (18-25, 24-26, 22-25)
Golden Set: SÍ vs Fleyr 17-15
