Morientes Muscat 13′, Rhys Gove 24′, Owen Galea  72′

Our youth team continued with their positive season, bagging another three points in a 3-1 win over Ghaxaq on their home soil. After just two minutes we could have opened the score but Tonna concluded high from an ideal position off a Stivala cross.  Ten minutes later Stivala threw an inviting cross from a corner with Morientes Muscat anticipating everyone to tap home. Morientes tested the goalkeeper again from distance with the latter having to tip to a corner with some difficulty.  Midway through the half Fgura found the net again as Gove collected a deflected ball in the box and beat Ghaxaq’s number one with an angled shot.  Seconds later the upright denied Muscat from his personal second when he let loose a thunderous shot from quite a distance.  In a rare Ghaxaq foray they entered back in the fray capitalizing on a loose ball to beat Scerri in goal. Galvanized with this goal the home team was unlucky when an insidious lob missed the target by a whisker. It was Ghaxaq’s turn to hit the woodwork seconds after the restart.  The boys in red took command again of the game and a Stivala freekick on the hour mark was turned to a corner. Stivala again concluded just wide a ball well served by Owen Galea. Fgura restored a two-goal lead when Gareth Desira crossed to Owen Galea on the second post who headed home. Ghaxaq’s reaction was culminated with a another shot which ended on the crossbar and out of play and Scerri saving off another shot to a corner.
