PREVIEW: WEEKEND NORWEGIAN ACTION
RECAPS
EXTRA TIME
MATHEW WAGNER - Thursday, August 16, 2012
Kyle Helton, Rhett Bernstein and Mjøndalen take a seven-game unbeaten streak against Alta, while Sebastian Troupe and Bærum look to end a four-game losing streak.

Mjøndalen IF - Alta IF

Despite three ties in the last four games, Mjøndalen still finds itself in the middle of the promotion race, as the team hosts Alta Sunday.

American defender Kyle Helton should once again start for Mjøndalen, while fellow defender Rhett Bernstein is questionable due to an injury.

Since the end of the summer break, Mjøndalen is unbeaten, putting it in prime position to make a run to the Tippeligaen. However, the team has wasted chances in three of the last four games and now sits one place out of the playoff.

Alta could be just what Mjøndalen needs to get over that hump, as Alta sits in 15th place, only five points out of last place.

Neither team is reporting any injuries at this time.

Bærum SK - Strømmen IF

Bærum's hopes of staying in the Adeccoligaen continue to hang by a thread, as it takes on Strømmen Sunday.

American defender Sebastian Troupe should start in the backline for Bærum once again.

Bærum's four-game losing streak has stifled any comeback the team thought it had in the making when it won two games in a row early in July.

Strømmen, meanwhile, is looking to bounce back from a 4-0 home loss to Sarpsborg, and the punching bag of the Adeccoligaen is a good team to bounce back against.

Neither team is reporting any injuries at this time.
