Futsal: Seniors sweep aside JC

23.11.17 Futsal: Seniors sweep aside JC

Despite having their two Georgian players away on international duty and some players out with injuries, Swieqi still managed to dominate proceedings against JC.

Ryan Xuereb opened the floodgates with a clinical finish in the 2nd minute. Two quick goals by Veselin Ivanov put Swieqi into a 0-3 lead in the 10th and 12th minute. Swieqi had numerous chances that went begging, much to the relief of the JC squad. Dylan Micallef and Christian Wismayer then added their names to the scoreboard to help Swieqi take a comfortable 0-5 lead into the half time break.

Swieqi continued the second half in a similar vein to the first, with captain Christian Wismayer adding his second goal of the night. Junior College had their first real chance on goal which was excellently saved by Swieqi's custodian Jacob Cipriott. Swieqi continued to build on their lead thanks to Xuereb and player-coach Boicho Marev. Junior College grabbed a consolation goal mid-way through the second half, with the scoreline now reading 1-8. Wismayer then grabbed his hat trick for the night, followed by further goals by Bobo, Micallef and Xureb, to make the final scoreline 1-12 in Swieqi's favour.

Swieqi's Seniors next take on University of Malta in an anticipated fixture on 7th December at 8pm at Corradino Pavillion.
