U19s beat Marsaxlokk in a tight encounter

28.09.14 U19s beat Marsaxlokk in a tight encounter

Swieqi United recovered from last week's disappointment by winning a hard fought game 3-2 in Marsaxlokk. Neil Farrugia opened the scoring in the 11th minute after some good work on the wing by Luca Borg but 15 minutes later Marsaxlokk drew level after a goalkeeper error allowing Marlon Grech to fire in from close range. The Orange then went into the lead again on 28 minutes after Kurt Fenech scored with a low, driving shot. Coach Mario Mifsud switched to a back four in the second half as Swieqi sought to consolidate their lead. After a tight fought game, Neil Farrugia made it 3-1 on 89 minutes before Marsaxlokk scored with 1 minute remaining. Thereupon a final siege on the Swieqi goal was not enough to rescue a point as the Orange held on to a much needed win. A great team effort against the very determined Southerners.
