Scorers: 19′ Donys Quintero, 22′ Jeremy Micallef, 90+3′ Rafael Conrado Prudente
Our seniors claimed the scalp of promotion chasers Pieta H in the Friday afternoon clash ending victorious 3-1. The boys in Red scored twice in the space of 3 minutes between the 19th and 22nd. A Jeremy Cassar corner on the second post was headed towards goal by Prudente finding Quintero to head in from close range. Matthew Brincat opened on the wings for Quintero who dashes into the box and crosses back to the onrushing Jeremy Micallef who concludes in the net. The match continued with nice flowing football from the two teams with Prudente heading over for Fgura and keeper Julian Azzopardi saving also on a header and later neutralizing a direct freekick. The last move of the period was constructed by Quintero cutting on the inside from a lateral position but concluding high. The second period saw Hotspurs putting us under some pressure as we had to endure some anxious moments. Pieta missed a golden opportunity heading over the ball from an ideal position but they managed to reduce the arrears on the 69th minute when from a corner they scored with a shot on the turn from inside the penalty box. Hotspurs pushed on the accelerator and a good occasion went begging when they concluded high in front of goal. Prudente sealed the issue in injury time after receiving a long ball beating a defender and the keeper caught in no man’s land and calmly depositing into an empty net to the joy of players and loyal supporters.
