12.12.16 U17s beaten in confrontation with Rainbows
Tarxien Rainbows proved to be too strong for Swieqi United as they beat the Young Owls by 4-1 at the Rabat Ground in Mtarfa. In fairness, Swieqi played well for most of the game but were undone by some costly errors and good passages of play by the Southerners. Tarxien went into the break comfortably leading 2-0 having just scored directly from a free-kick.
The Orange were then unlucky to concede a penalty and went down 4-0 with a couple of minutes to spare. Deep into stoppage time, Swieqi United reduced the arrears through a penalty kick - a small consolation for their efforts.
