19.11.15 A deserved win for Gozo
The match between the top 2 teams in the 2nd division ended in a 4-0 win for the Gozitans who were clinical on the day.
In the first half both teams had a very well organised defense, however Gozo had more possession of the ball. In the 39th Minute of the first half, Gozo where awarded with a free-kick right outside the box and Maria Farrugia managed to score. Shortly after, in the 43rd Minute, Gozo crossed the ball into the box and when the back line tried to clear the ball away, the ball got deflected into their own net, heading Gozo to half-time with a 2-0 lead.- which resulted in an unlucky own goal as the defence scrambled to get the ball away.
Swieqi went all out in the second half creating some nice play and trying to catch up with Gozo, however Gozo didn’t hold back and they also created some good opportunities. In the 76th Minute when play was still in the middle of the pitch, Gozitan Joselene Gafa managed to shoot, lobbing the Swieqi defense line as well as the goaler, putting Gozo in a 3-0 lead. This third goal created some frustrations amongst the Swieqi players who were hungry for their first goal in the match and at the same time, Gozo where hungry for the fourth which they managed to score just 2 minutes after the third.
The game was very well played from both ends and although Gozo deserved the thee points, Swieqi worked hard to give them a very good game.
