14.03.16 Luxol win derby futsal match
Following Valletta's win and temporary lead of the table the night before, Luxol knew that they had to emerge out of Corradino with another 3 points v neighbors Swieqi in last night's clash from the Elite Division.
Luxol found themselves in a 3-0 lead thanks to three unfortunate own goals by the Swieqi players. However Swieqi didn't let such misfortune get to them and had a number of decent chances themselves, in particular Fred on two occasions. Due to superiority of the opponents, Swieqi had to adopt a more defensive approach to such game, however they managed to give a good name for themselves.
As the half time whistle blew, Luxol had a 4-0 lead over their opponents.
As per other games played by Swieqi, Swieqi had a better performance in the second half and definitely gave Luxol a hard time. Despite conceding early, Swieqi kept on pressing for a goal. With 8 minutes played, Jean Bert scored a beauty to pull a goal back for his team. Fred had another chance to add another goal, however the Luxol custodian dealt with the danger well. Luxol added their 6th goal with 9 minutes remaining, however a minute after great team work between Fred and Bobo saw the latter reduce the scoreline to 6-2. Luxol added their seventh and final goal a minute from time. Many thought that the match was over, however Bobo had two great opportunities to add a third goal for his team, only to be denied by top notch goalkeeping from the Luxol custodian.
Swieqi next face Lija on Friday 1st April at 8pm at Corradino at 21.45pm
