16.12.13 Vital win for Swieqi United!
BOV 3rd Division
Swieqi United and Ghaxaq squared up at the Centenary Stadium earlier this afternoon. ABNER DOS SANTOS put the Orange ahead after 17 minutes when his strong low shot found its way into the net.
Ghaxaq had their goalkeeper sent off right before half-time when he was lashed out at Kenneth Ekezie. However, after the break, it was Ghaxaq who seized the initiative with some good attacking play. The Greens were awarded a penalty when Sapiano collided with the Ghaxaq striker and the Southerners leveled proceedings.
Swieqi finally scored thanks to KENNETH EKEZIE's header which gave Ghaxaq's replacement keeper no chance. Craig Debattista also made his debut for the Orange. FT 2-1.
