28.01.16 10 man Swieqi see off Luqa
On Wednesday night at Zebbug ground the Swieqi u-19 squad took on Luqa securing a vital 3 points. Luqa started off the match with malice but Swieqi soon changed things around and took control and started dictating the game. Dean Grech opened the scoring after a long distance strike from an extremely well executed short corner.
A few minutes later Thomas Debono added a second and registered his first goal of the season. Things seemed to be going well until Thomas Camilleri picked up a second yellow just 5 minutes before half time leaving Swieqi with 10 men. From the start of the second half the young orange kept upping the tempo although a man down.
Matteo Caribotti then made it 3 with a header from a dangerous cross. The orange kept piling pressure on Luqa and Mark Martin sealed off the game after a great run which got him one on one with the keeper and leaving the latter helplessly beaten.
