Scorers: Morientes Muscat, Owen Azzopardi, Owen Azzopardi, Clayton Pulo, Morientes Muscat
What a thrilling first game of the season for our Youth team, winning 5-3 against neighbors Zejtun C. Surely this was not recommendable for the faint-hearted. Fgura was in the driving seat in the first half and after missing some chances took the lead as Morientes Muscat tapped home his second attempt after his first was blocked by the opposing keeper. Before the break we doubled the score. Skipper Aiken Desira’s pass sent Muscat down the right flank who’s cross was met by Owen Azzopardi who fired home from close range. However, the game turned on its head in the first 20 minutes of the second period as Zejtun scored three times, first from the spot following a handling offence, then a cross deceived keeper Scerri as the ball sailed over his head in the top far corner and then when breaking down the right flank, crossing a low ball on the first post with the blue’s forward finding the net. It was not over as substitute Pulo left an indelible mark immediately upon entering the fray, first freeing Owen Azzopardi who lobbed over the on-rushing keeper and then with a solo move which pierced the defence ending with a delightful low angled shot past the keeper. Back in the lead, Fgura took control of the match and sealed it off with a well-crafted move; Tonna crossed towards Azzopardi who laid the ball to Muscat who slalomed in the box and hammered the ball at the back of the net. Well done to all the squad for securing the first three points of the season.
