Scoring Summary

A muffed kickoff proved the start of a nightmare for the Ruins, as Sandnes scored on their first offensive play; a dive that RB Stein N. Wisted took to the outside and ran in for a gain of 21 yards and a touchdown. K Gunnar Bjorland added the PAT, as he is well trained to do. Hamar clearly felt the loss of Coach/QB/S/K/P Don Jess, with the Ruins throwing 6 interceptions on the day, including two returned for TDs (one by LB Jon E. Jakobsen, and the other by DT Jonny Solberg). Hamars Junior QB Anders Johnsen simply was asked to do too much in his first heavy action since the preseason. The scoreboard saw the Oilers up by 21 after WR Joakim Rød and FB Cato Wallin had added to Wisteds TD. Rød could also have added another TD on a reverse which he ran some 60 yards for an apparent TD, but it was called back on an offside. Bjorland hit another PAT, while junior QB and holder Henning Klungtveit added a two-point conversion pass to Mike Lemond. The second half saw the interception returns by Jakobsen and Solberg, as well as a Will Carver 19 yards TD run and another TD run by Stein N. Wisted. In the final minutes Hamar added a safety when they took a knee in the endzone to avoid the Oilers getting excellent field position on the ensuing drive.

There was never any doubt about where the trophy that NoAFF vice-president Bjarne Plassen handed out would end up. Sandnes had full control with the exception of two drives in the mid-second quarter. Although Hamar players such as LB/RB Bjørn Olav Slåttlandet, QB/DB Anders Johnsen and RB Vegard Kokslien had a decent game; it was not enough. Johnsen seldom could stand in the pocket long enough to find star WR Kjetil Sveen (who caught the balls that came close enough).

The game took place at what must have been the best football field in Norway this season. A sunny day, a nice grass field, swan-neck field goals, a good speaker, professional film crew and a few fans made a good event into an excellent one.

The "hooligans" from Bergen also made themselves noticed both before, during and after the game, cheering the Oilers on with posters and slogans. Good work guys !
