09.11.15 Marsa prove too strong for Swieqi
Marsa showcased their promotion credentials yesterday when they comprehensively beat Swieqi 3-0 at the Mosta Stadium. Paul Chimezie pounced early on to score and goalkeeper Sam Bartolo was in fine form as he managed to pull off two good saves to keep the Orange in the game. Swieqi replied when Calado's cross found the unmarked Coleiro who headed wide and from a free kick a Marsa defender headed the ball off his own crossbar. These two opportunities were the best chances the Orange had throughout the proceedings.
Marsa came out all guns blazing in the second half and doubled the score on 47 minutes thanks to Lee James Agius before Paul Chimezie added another goal from a header a couple of minutes later. Swieqi did go close through Calado and Matteo Caribotti but it was too little too late for the Orange to mount any serious assault against the resolute Marsa rear-guard.
Formation: S. Bartolo, G. Refalo, K. Sultana, E. Gollcher, P. Briscoe White, J. C. Borg, N. Schembri, D. Calleja Cremona (M. Fenech), G. Calado (M. Caribotti), K. Ekezie, K. Coleiro (M. Asciak).
