25.01.14 The Orange emerge triumphant.
BOV 3rd Division
Kalkara 1 Swieqi United 3
(Dos Santos '5, Ekezie '40, '86)
The Orange emerged triumphant on a cold, wet and incredibly windy evening at the Centenary Stadium, Ta' Qali. The weather conditions certainly did not aid both clubs who struggled to adapt to the situation. Nevertheless, Swieqi United drew first blood just after 5 minutes when Kenneth Ekezie was fouled in the box. Abner Dos Santos duly converted. Dos Santos again hit the post before Ekezie doubled the lead just before half-time.
With Kalkara playing in the wind's direction, the second half was a different story as the southerners gained the initiative with a goal just after half-time. Some great Swieqi defending coupled with a great Ekezie goal on 86 minutes ensured this scrappy encounter ended with Swieqi smiles.
