2012 Season Review
Mike Nevo secured the title with KFUM Oslo due to a convincing 8-2 away win on the last day of the season. Nevo continued the team ethic by scoring 13 goals but also provided 12 assists for team mates. It was tight at the top and Oslo conceded a lot of goals, something they will need to address when they play in a higher league next year.
Omar Brown and Strindheim collapsed in the second half of the season. Only managing a further four victories left the club in 7th place. Brown only getting another 3 goals in 11 games during the run in may explain why the team struggled so badly.
Dench Frimpong had a steady year with Moss. He dominated the midfield defensively but with only 3 assists appears to lack the creative edge to push the team on to challenge for the title.
Arawn Moridin and Lorenskog made a decent challenge of it in the end. They were only five points behind Oslo and should have been closer but for a poor defeat at home to Tiller. Moridin will have to improve next season, 3 goals and 6 assists is not enough to help the team at this level.
Severus Moody did well at Steinkjer during the run in. He added 17 goals and seven assists to help the club move up a couple of spots. Hopefully he can continue this next year get the team motoring.
Jaime Bowmimo couldn’t continue the good run with Baerum. They lost six games in the run in and dropped down the table to third. They were eventually 9 points behind the winners and Jamie must be very disappointed with how the season finished.
Santi Ganso and Raufoss capitalised on Baerum’s poor finish to top the league. With only 1 defeat, top scorers and best defence in the league they definitely deserved the promotion.
Wolodymyr Zelenko and Lillehammer ultimately suffered in the league due to too many draws. Only 4 defeats during the season but the 11 stalemates cost the team a higher place finish than 5th. Zelenko did well defensively so a new striker looks a priority to make a better push of it next year.
Demba Hynd grabbed a few more goals at Kristiansund but still failed to make an assist. The club remained 4th in the table and the fans will be demanding more from Hynd next year.
John Crane had a poor run in with Valdres. He only grabbed 2 more goals and an average rating of 6.91 is very poor for a player of his calibre. Another player who needs to step up to the plate next term.
Jake Stothard will be relieved that Follo managed to pull away from the bottom. Stothard stepped up and improved in the 2nd half of the campaign. He added 7 assists but ended the season goal less something which surprised everyone seeing as he is such a dead ball specialist.
Lewis Leddy is still in a state of disbelief at Algard. A great first half of the season but the team only won four more games to fall to 6th place. Leddy continued to score on a regular basis but it wasn’t enough and Lewis will be stunned by the final table.
Luke Corcoran and Floy couldn’t quite do enough to step up after Algards fall. The club dropped a spot to 4rd but Corcoran was brilliant, 4 goals, 4 assists and a 7.32 average is very impressive for a central defender.
Steve Duffy continued his great form for Pors to ensure they topped the league. Whilst all about were falling Duffy kept on scoring and assisting in quantity and looks to have the quality to make the step up next year.
Tiko Brohan had a decent run in at Vindbjart. He still looks to need better players around him but it was a good first year and with some investment they could challenge next season.
Geraint Alacarde and pre-season favourites Notodden will be puzzled as to how they fared so badly. Only good enough for 8th place but Alacarde can be happy on a personal level. He got himself a quantity of assists and a few goals but ultimately it wasn’t enough. Has a hernia at that the moment and may struggle to be fit for the new season.
Jesus Christ was brilliant for Nest-Sotra. He managed 13 clean sheets in 25 games and only conceded 21 goals in total, easily the best defensive record. The club managed to push up the table to 5th place in the end and if they find a goal scorer may be contenders next season.
Edoardo Lorenzo secured top spot with Tromsdalen. Eventually winning the league by 10 points Lorenzo stepped up his game adding a few goals and assists at the business end of the season. A great effort and Lorenzo looks another player good enough for the step up in class next year.
Daniel Park tailed off with Tonsberg. The club slipped to 6th place and Daniel must be frustrated they couldn’t continue the good form from the start of the season.
Herring tried to apply the pressure with Skeid but fell short in the end. Still it was a great effort and Herring will no doubt become a fans favourite if he continues the great form. The shout of “there’s only one Herring Herring-Herring-Herring” may be a mouth full but it’s one the fans are singing.
Juan Coco Luis Pereira tried to drag Orn Horten to the summit but fell short. He is the epitome of a one man club. A 24 goal season with 10 assists and a 7.69 average is very impressive but wasn’t enough to get the club any higher than 3rd.
Freddie Whites was continually played out of position at Harstad. He did very well from the left midfield slot providing plenty of assists but 7th position is all the team could manage.
The Cup was won by Odd Grenland who knocked out the last remaining youngsters clubs. Tromsdalen made it the furthest with a quarter final placing but went down 3-1 to the eventual winners.
