13.02.12 Swieqi U. 3 Ghaxaq 1
After an intense week where several questions were asked about the Orange, Swieqi responded in magnificent fashion beating a highly rated Ghaxaq side 3-1 in a resounding and memorable performance. It was Ghaxaq who took the lead before half time after some indecision in the penalty box resulted in a goal, but in the second half it was a completely different story. Swieqi dominated proceedings from start to finish and Simon Sammut drew Swieqi level with a rasping shot. Thereupon, Swieqi seized the momentum, upped the intensity and were duly rewarded thanks to Fabien Debono’s low strike past the keeper to make it 2-0. Steven Diacono then made sure all the points were safe with a cracker from outside the box. Ghaxaq reacted negatively and had a man sent-off before the end but what a response by the Orange and the Fgura debacle was quickly forgotten!
