By Endre Bakken, 27 April 2009, 15:38

Rosenborg were the best team through the whole game, but didn't get the lead until they kicked into top gear in the last minutes at Romerike.

LILLESTRØM (rosenborg.info): Marek Sapara became match-winner one minute before full time, when he, from 20 metres sent a shot in by the closest post after being waited on by Rade Prica.

"It was incredible! My free-kicks had been terrible," the surprised goal-scorer said.

Said Prica sped up the game when he entered the pitch as a substitute after an hour. He was involved when Alexander Tettey bicycle-kicked the ball into the post, and just after that he headed right outside the goal. The equalizer was sent into the bottom corner after a pass by another substitute," Roar Strand.

"We had nothing to lose by playing offensively. I got plenty of room to move and have to thank Roar for a good pass - he saw me move. I got the ball with me and succeeded in finishing," Rade Prica explained.

Erik Hamrén gave the compatriot the credit for RBK's victory.

"He scored a goal and made an assist. I think the victory was much due to Rade's entry. He was a relentless threat. We became much more dangerous when he entered. In a few short minutes we created several chances," Hamrén concluded.

Rosenborg had controlled the whole match, but didn't create any proper chances in the first half - Steffen Iversen got closest to scoring with a touch from three metres.

Unfairly, Bjørn Helge Riise gave LSK the lead ten minutes after half time, when he outran Tettey and Per Ciljan Skjelbred after a quickly taken free-kick.

"We ran a lot today, but then the opponent scored on their first opportunity, like against Odd. But we showed that we played with our hearts," Sapara concluded after the first victory at Åråsen since 2003.
