13.01.16 Moore and Naudi strengthen 2nd place
After the long break over the Christmas period, the Swieqi girls were back in action for their first game of the New Year against Hamrun. This game was predicted to be a tight encounter since Hamrun were just a point below Swieqi.
In the first half, the Swieqi girls went on the pitch aiming to bag the full 3 points. There were a lot of attacking opportunities for Swieqi, but the Hamrun goalie made some good saves. Hamrun were dangerous at times too. However the Swieqi girls were too strong for the Hamrun goalie and went into the dressing room at half time with two beautiful goals scored by Moore. Firstly, she dribbled the Hamrun goalie and the other, headed in a corner given by Kate Galea.
In the second half, the Swieqi girls hadn’t had enough yet and went out to grab more goals. Hamrun on the other hand were also trying to grab their first goal to try and enter back in the match. Having said that, the Swieqi girls were attacking more than Hamrun. After just four minutes into the second half, Naudi increased the score to make it three. At the 55th Minute, the Hamrun’s Brazilian player found the ball in her feet and took a high shot from outside the box which ended up in the net making the score 3-1. Swieqi quickly reacted to this goal when Naudi got the double making it 4-1 with a finish from outside the box.
Overall, this was a game which Swieqi deserved to win as they played as a team, in a very organised manner. Swieqi now find themselves comfortably in second place behind league leaders Gozo. The girls in orange next face Tarxien Rainbows on the 26th January 2016 at Centenary Ground.
