Scorer: Dylan Grima

Our seniors squandered a golden opportunity to keep the pace with the pace setters when we lost to leaders Zebbug R, with both their goals coming in injury time. Fgura took an early lead when just after seven minutes Dylan Caruana capitalized on a defensive uncertainty to slot the ball home. Goalie Azzopardi dived to his right to save to a corner on the 24th minute. In the 33rd minute Azzopardi felled a Rangers forward, the resulting penalty hit the right upright the ball travelling across the face of goal to go behind for a corner. In the 38th minute Micallef liberated Quintero who advanced but failed to beat the keeper. Just before the break Grech took a corner on the right with Gandini anticipating everyone but his header went inches over the bar. Fgura continued to create the most clear of chances and just after the break Quintero crossed to Prudente who failed to connect from an ideal position. Prudente connected to a Gandini freekick and headed towards goal with the keeper deflecting the ball to a corner. Zebbug were reduced to 10 men midway through the half but managed to get a dubious second penalty in the 91st minute. Shawn Borg was given marching orders for protests and the penalty was converted. Six minutes into injury time Zebbug got their winner with a swift move and a shot on the first post. In their attempt to salvage the game, Fgura lost another player as Gandini was flashed the red card for retaliation.
