U19: Swieqi win in top of the table clash

17.11.16 U19: Swieqi win in top of the table clash

Swieqi United's Under 19s gained a very important 3 points last night with a 1-0 win against Birzebbugia St. Peter's at the Rabat Ground in Mtarfa.

The Orange's only goal of the game came after 20 mins when Nicky Schembri's cross was caught but fumbled by the goalkeeper and Nicholas Galea duly pounced to score. Birzebbugia were very threatening during the first half though Swieqi could have made it 2-0 when Schembri's effort went just wide.
 
In the second half, the Orange tightened their defence and played a much better brand of football. A crucial turning point in the match came on 50' minutes when Edward Gatt was very harshly adjudged to have brought down the Birzebbugia striker [despite winning the ball cleanly]. Thankfully, Lady Luck smiled on Swieqi as the penalty was blasted over the crossbar.

The Orange duly held on to record a vital victory. They next face Santa Lucija next week.
