28.09.14 Seniors make an explosive debut in 2nd Division
Swieqi United got off to a promising start in Second Division with a 4-0 win vs Mellieha. After a shaky start, the Orange started to regain a bit of composure and with Matthew Sapiano pulling off a string of exceptional saves, it was always going to be difficult to penetrate the Orange defence. Swieqi did manage to score before half time when Jon Briscoe White's shot was deflected into the net. Thereupon, Swieqi came out hungry to seal to win in the second period.
After 45 seconds, Leontiev Konda latched onto a through ball by Jeremy Gatt Coleiro to make it 2-0 and on 52 minutes Kenneth Ekezie made it 3-0 after the same Gatt Coleiro's inch perfect pass enabled Kenny to chip the keeper. Mellieha did go close on a number of occasions but the defence held well. Leontiev Konda was brought down near the end of the game and Mellieha's full back was red carded. Thereupon, the Albanian coolly slotted in the free kick to make it 4-0!
