In 2006 they again went down to the 3rd division after a season that was full of long term injuries to almost all key players.

2007 Cup run
In the 2007 Norwegian Football Cup
KIL/Hemne caused one of the biggest shocks when they beat Molde
3-1 at home in the cup first round. The same team had previously beaten KIL/Hemne 11-1 a year earlier. In the second round, the team were up against Rosenborg
. RBK took a 16th minute lead through Didier Konan Ya
. However, just two minutes later, former Rosenborg player Ole Johan Singsdal
made it 1-1. KIL/Hemne continued to press and went into the break level. Just after half-time KIL/Hemne shocked Norwegian football by taking a 2-1 lead after Asgeir Snekvik scored in the 46th minute. However, RBK scored 8 minutes later through Roar Strand
. In the 83rd minute KIL/Hemne again shocked Norway when Espen Sødahl made it 3-2. However, the goal was disallowed because KIL/Hemne's Ole Johan Singsdal pushed Per Ciljan Skjelbred
in the chest. After full time it stood at 2-and went to extra time. Only five minutes into the first half of extra time, RBK took the lead through Alexander Tettey
and most people thought that the game was over. However, after 116 minutes, Asgeir Snekvik scored to make it 3-3 and take it to penalties. One minute later, with one minute remaining of stoppage time, RBK had a free kick in a good position and Didier Konan Ya swung it around the wall and up into the top corner. The drama didn't stop there. In the last second, KIL/Hemne had a corner and sent all of their players up in the home of making it 4-4 and keeping it to penalties. The ball came in from the right, and Morten Klungervik headed the ball against the crossbar and out.
