We played three games in June and we started off pretty good. We picked up two wins in a row, which made us claim a spot inside the top 10 of the League. Both victories were deserved, as we played very well. Unfortunately we closed our first season half with a 2-1 loss away at Jevnaker, who are joined leaders in the League. I have to admit that they were the better team on that day and the victory was deserved. But I always find it a shame to lose a game in the final third, just after you equalized after an hour of play. And to make it even more sour, we got some opportunities to get a second goal as well! Only the post was in our way of netting an undeserved 1-2 lead in the 76th minute. Shortly after that we conceded the 2-1 and the match was over, despite Jevnaker getting a red card in the 89th minute. It was too late for us to change the game.
Two wins in three games makes June 2016 a good month for Valdres FK. We managed to climb into the top ten, with a decent 7th place. Only downside is the gap that we have with the team who's in 5th place. A gap of 5 points is a big gap at this level and seeing we aren't a team that will win 5 or 6 matches in a row, it will be very difficult to close it. But looking back we can be very satisfied and we look forward to the end of the summer break in July.
