08.04.15 U19s grab crucial 3 points
Swieqi's Minors were under no false illusions when facing Gharghur at Mosta. Having ousted Marsaskala by the solitary goal the previous Monday, Swieqi knew they not only had to win but also perform well. On a cold and windy night, Swieqi played very well, perhaps buoyed by the fact that a win against a good Gharghur team would see them close in on the title. The philosophy and attitude adopted by the little owls was different and Swieqi dominated proceedings bar a few minor mishaps.
Luca Borg stole the show with two good goals, the first a beauty as he skipped past 2 players to lash it past the keeper. In the second half, Swieqi United should have buried it when Erik Gollcher missed from underneath the posts before Luca Borg made sure of the win when he flicked the ball gently past the keeper and into the net. Liam Fenech also went close and there was also another run for Kurt Giacchino - who is still recovering after an injury.
The defence was once again expertly marshalled by Kristian Sultana and Benji Frendo whilst Thomas Philip Debono also played well having scored the all crucial goal against M'skala the week before.The Orange now need to beat Mtarfa to ensure that they win the championship!
