Scorers: Morientes Muscat 41′

On a wet night in Marsaxlokk our under 19 registered an important victory over rivals and neighbours Tarxien R thanks to a solitary goal scored from the spot on the 41st minute. Fgura were the better team in the first half and created a number of scoring opportunities with Morientes Muscat in the thick of the action. First, he shot over the bar from medium distance and later a direct freekick went wide from the upright by a whisker. Owen Galea had an attempt at goal but his shot on the turn missed the target. Miguel Zammit was fouled in the box and Muscat converted the resulting penalty. Just before the break Muscat went close again but his shot thumped the crossbar. Rainbows reacted in the second half but were easily controlled by Pulis, Hayman and co in the heart of our defence. Scerri turned a deflected shot to a corner on 87 minute and from another corner, Tarxien scored but it was evident that the referee stopped play before the ball was bundled over the line. At first, strangely enough, the goal was allowed but the decision was overturned after consulting her assistant. This led to vehement protests from the opposing clan with Fgura managing to control the last attempts in the 14 minutes of additional time that ensued.
