03.03.14 Dos Santos keeps Swieqi 4 points from leaders
Despite underperforming in the first half, Swieqi United raised their game in the second when Abner Dos Santos equalised from the spot. Thereupon, with Santa Venera reduced to ten men after Mark Grech was sent off for foul language, Swieqi dominated proceedings. In the final minute of the game, Matthew Fenech's low cross-shot in the middle of the area found Dos Santos whose close range bullet shot found the back of the Santa Venera net. Praise must also be heaped on goalkeeper Matthew Sapiano for pulling off a string of exceptional saves! A great recovery and a great second half performance! Come on Swieqi!
