23.03.16 Women: Swieqi victorious against Kirkop
The Swieqi Women’s Team was back in action at the Zebbug ground on Tuesday evening. Amy Galea Gingell and Maria Elena Grech were back in the game after injury.
In the first half, both teams took long to settle down. Kirkop B tried hard from kick-off and kept Swieqi from advancing until they settled down. Once the Swieqi women settled down, they controlled the ball better despite the windy and sandy weather conditions and gave some beautiful passes keeping possession for the majority of the game. On the 17th minute, a foul on Sammy Jo Barbara gave Swieqi a free-kick. Rebecca Naudi took the shot and finished perfectly putting Swieqi into the lead. Swieqi continued their great work entering half time 1-0 up.
In the second half, the Swieqi women went on the pitch with greater determination whilst Kirkop calmed down their play. Lots of nice passes and crosses led to goals scored by Daniela Maggi, Yolande Attard, Amy Galea Gingell and Francesca Chircop. Praise goes out to the women who played as a united team, playing for the badge and for each other despite not being a full squad.
