The Swieqi women were back in action against Tarxien Rainbows. Playing in cold and windy conditions, the first half saw the ball being played in the middle of the pitch with Swieqi advancing a few times, however failing to get the ball behind the net. The Tarxien women managed to keep good possession of the ball however rarely got passed the mid-way line. Both teams went into the dressing rooms at half time with no goals.
The second half was much more exciting. The women in orange got on the pitch with more determination to win the game. Swieqi played the ball nicely passing quite accurately. In the 50th minute, Amy Galea Gingell received a good pass, ran into the box and from the left side of the box managed to open the score for Swieqi United.
