Marsaxlokk

Scorers: Gareth Desira, Aiken Desira

All square between Fgura United and Marsaxlokk in the midweek fixture. Both teams having won their first match, fought it out in a two all draw. Fgura were the better team in the initial stages creating a number of scoring opportunities, but against the run of play they went behind on the 16th minute when Scerri was beaten from a direct freekick. Deservedly Fgura drew level 5 minutes later when from a Morientes Muscat lateral freekick, Gareth Desira soared higher than the opposing keeper to head home. Owen Azzopardi was denied from a certain goal in the opening minutes of the second period, but MXlokk grew in stature as time went by and took the lead midway through the second half when Thyrese Hayman headed into his own net an insidious cross. Galvanized by the lead, the seasiders hit the crossbar with Fgura having a goal disallowed for offside. M’Xlokk were reduced to 10 men, five minutes from time and Fgura’s final efforts were awarded when two minutes into additional time substitute Owen Galea was fouled in the box and skipper Aiken Desira coolly converting the resulting penalty to the joy of all the clan.
