17.01.16 Seniors frustrated on windy afternoon
Swieqi United were left frustrated on a very windy afternoon in Mosta. Facing off to bottom placed Msida, Swieqi had a good chance to continue their positive run of form but conceded a goal after just 8 minutes. Msida's Andrew Formosa was left unmarked in the box and from a corner kick headed the ball past Sam Bartolo.
Swieqi did react positively and went close through Patrick Briscoe White, before Kenneth Ekezie equalised on 23 minutes from a corner kick. The first half ended with both teams fighting out a midfield battle and the game firmly in the balance.
The boys came out all guns blazing in the second half and dominated proceedings. They were certainly unlucky on numerous occasions and good chances by Jean Claude Borg, Jon Briscoe white and substitute Mark Martin were all missed. Daniel Calleja Cremona then also came one on one against the keeper but his shot was well blocked.
It ended 1-1 and it certainly felt like 2 points dropped for the Orange.
