03.01.12 Swieqi United place 3rd
The Strickland Cup ended last night in dramatic fashion as Mtarfa defeated Marsaskala 6-5 on penalties to retain the coveted trophy.
The semi-finals were played on the 29th of December where a new look Swieqi side lost 0-4 to Mtarfa whilst Marsaskala beat Qrendi 1-0.
Yesterday's 3/4th place play off ended in a comfortable 3-1 win for Swieqi against Qrendi with Ivan Scicluna (2) and Timothy Hampton getting on the scoresheet.
The cracker was however the final itself with Mtarfa scoring in the 86th minute and Marsaskala equalizing in the 93rd minute. However, it was Mtarfa who prevailed on penalties making sure the Strickland Cup remains in Mtarfa for one more year.
A good experience before the league campaign resumes.
