05.11.15 Swieqi lads stutter in important game
The U17s squad went onto the pitch knowing that they were facing experienced opposition. Unfortunately for the Oranges, Sliema had more belief that they could win this game.
Sliema set about their game with pace and the lads in orange started closing well. Not much was going Swieqi’s way though. Despite two decent half chances for Swieqi, it was Sliema who took the lead and added a second after a quick counter attack. The blues pulled away with a third towards the end of the half.
In the second half Catania, Borg and Pace all came in for Farrugia, M.Gatt and Sultana. Swieqi and Sliema each had a few chances and goalkeeper Jake Zammit pulled off a couple of miracles when Sliema took advantage of the situation as the referee did not notice the second ball in the pitch.
Swieqi walk away from this result knowing that they have just had two of their toughest games all season. The squad will hardly give up and will definitely seek to gain points and make the club proud.
