13.12.15 Swieqi Owls produce brave performance!
Swieqi walked out onto the pitch determined to win this game. With two new players in the form of Emilio Edwards and Leonardo deBortoli, Swieqi looked ready to try again. The Orange got off to a bright start and saw a couple of chances go begging. The boys pushed the whites all the way but the match seemed to be heading for a draw. Towards the last moments of the half Valletta kicked a ball into the box from a freekick that ended up taking a deflection that sent the ball into the back of the net.
In the second half Swieqi and Valletta seemed evenly matched and Swieqi could have gotten the draw as the Citizens keeper was caught way off his line. It was not to be however. Valletta kept their lead and were denied a second by an on form Edward Gatt. Once again Swieqi must pick up the pieces but this time will definitely gain courage from the fact that this game was open till the final whistle!
Next up is the KO against San Gwann next Sunday at 12:30 in Dingli. Forza Swieqi!
