    Team Solli won the third consecutive title in the Norwegian men's 5-Player Team Championships. Norwegian internationals Petter Hansen, Svein Roger Olsen, Sverre Lund, Geir O. Pedersen, Knut Hansen and youngster Thomas Fagerström sealed the victory with a 3-1 win against third-placed Strike BK. Solli already won the Norwegian Baker Team Championships earlier this season.

    All 12 five-player teams in the Norwegian first league bowl 22 matches in the season. Two matches over three team-games against each home and away. One point is given for each game won and one point for the 3-game series.

    After 21 matches Team Solli has compiled a 18-3 won-lost record and holds a 14.5 point lead over Metro BK with current or former Norwegian internationals Per Kristian Eide, Tom Ingholm, Eirik Borgersrud and Roy Asheim. Metro BK has finished just 19 matches but cannot challenge Solli anymore as they can only earn a maximum of 12 points in the remaining three matches.

    Solli already won the Norwegian Baker Team Championships earlier this season.
