Scorers: Ewertton Silva, Charlles Gandini, Matthew Brincat, Donys Quintero

In the first official match in history against neighbours Tarxien R our seniors easily won 4-1. Fgura shared the exchanges with the more illustrious opponents, however the best moments were created by the ex-Premier side. They had a shot on the first post which went just wide and another cross shot had the same fate. On the 35th minute Tarxien took the lead when a freekick was blocked by the wall but the rebound took a slight deflection which eluded Moore in goal. Fgura’s reaction culminated in a weak header by Quintero off a corner which was controlled with some difficulty by the extreme defender. Moore produced a fine reflex save, blocking with his feet just before the break. Our boys raised to the occasion in the second half dominating for long stretches. After just two minutes, Dylan Caruana was the protagonist with some neat footwork on the left flank who squared back to Ewertton just outside the box who switched the ball to his left foot and curled the ball past the helpless keeper for the one all. A majestic freekick by fellow Brazilian Gandini put the reds in front on the 58th minute. A collective move with Quintero serving Grech down the right on to Matthew Brincat who shot past the goalkeeper from an acute angle. In the 68th minute a long ball from Ewertton towards agile Quintero who sped past his defender and shot the ball past the goalkeeper for goal number 4.  Tarxien tried to reduce the arrears but Moore was effective negating Rainbows from their second with a fine save on the first post. Dylan Caruana could have added a fifth in the final moments of the game but was denied by goalkeeper. A splendid display to end the year on a high note
