Comment: Last match of the season and a lot on stake for the visitors from Halden. Kvik would secure promotion with a victory. Any other outcome and they had to rely on Eidsvold not winning their match. For Vestfossen it was certainly a more relaxing approach to the match. Sitting comfortably in the middle of table, it was all about finishing the season with their heads high. The weather was nice, but a gusty wind made it really cold. Vestfossen started brightly and got an early lead when Kim Berntzen headed the hosts in front after just eight minutes. Kvik Halden gradually started to dominate as time went on in the first half, but the visitors struggled to create any clear-cut chances.
After the interval, Kvik Halden stepped it up further at Strandajordet Idrettspark. The reward came midway through the second half when Peder Nomell smashed in the equalizer (see video of the goal below) Just some minutes later, the topscorer Björn Berglund beautiful curled in the winner for Kvik Halden. Vestfossen was never able to respond and Kvik Halden players and supporters could invade the pitch at Strandajordet Idrettspark and celebrate the promotion!
