Meistriliiga week 3 - Sillamäe thwart Levadia

Sillamäe 0-0 Levadia

Levadia were held to a goalless draw in a snowy Sillamäe on Saturday. In a game of half chances and poor finishing, Sillamäe's former Levadia striker Vladislav Ivanov missed the best chance when he screwed his left shot wide from close range when one on one with Roman Smiško. It is a good point for Sillamäe but they are still seeking their first goal and win of the season. After the match, Levadia striker Rimo Hunt spoke to TV6: "We have lost two points, we came here to win....but we are satisfied with our start to the season. We have played some strong teams and are unbeaten, which is a psychological boost." 

Kalju made it two wins out of three with a 3-1 win at home to Tallinna Kalev. Kalju were 2-0 up within half an hour with goals from Juri Jevdokimov (from the penalty spot) and Kristen Viikmäe. Kalev coach was ordered from the bench after half an hour, perhaps still livid about the debatable penalty award when Sean Whalen looked to play the ball in a challenge with Oliver Konsa. Kalju were three up shortly after half time when Jevdokimov scored his second, his shot into the ground looping up and into the top corner. Kassim Aidara pulled one back from close range for Kalev but it didn't stir a comeback. Kalev also had Deniss Jõgiste sent off late on for a second yellow card.

Paide 0-1 Viljandi

Viljandi picked up their first three points of the season thanks to a 20th minute goal from Ott Ottis, a low finish from inside the box. Tiik Tikenberg missed an 87th minute penalty for Paide, sending it wide of the post. Paide host Kalju in a rearranged fixture on Tuesday night. 

Flora continue to look impressive with a comprehensive 4-0 win at home to Tammeka. Karol Mets got things going putting Flora ahead on 10 minutes and the lead was doubled by Andre Frolov just before half time. Late goals from Frolov and Aleksei Belov put some further distance between the teams. Flora welcome Kuressaare to Tallinn next Saturday.
