01.02.16 Seniors obtain priceless three points
Swieqi United registered a crucial win against Zejtun Corinthians at Mosta Stadium - a win which guaranteed a crucial three points for the Orange. Having narrowly lost 1-2 vs Gharghur, the Orange were keen to continue their recent positive performances and aimed to ensure they didn't leave the stadium empty handed.
In fact, it was Swieqi who took the initiative early on. Patrick Briscoe White converted a penalty after just '6 minutes and the Orange thereupon sought to sit back and staunchly defend their lead. Zejtun did threaten Swieqi on countless occasions but they were thwarted all the time by the impeccable Kristian Sultana and Jonathan Briscoe White.
The second half was more or less the same. With Jean Noel Azzopardi and Daniel Calleja Cremona working tirelessly down the wings, Swieqi sought to stifle Zejtun Corinthians as much as possible. The Orange should have scored more goals but spurned good chances by Kenneth Ekezie, Matteo Caribboti and Jean Noel Azzopardi.
In the end, it was a vital 3 points and the Orange now welcome Zurrieq at Luxol Stadium next Saturday.
Formation: S. Bartolo, D. Grech, J.B.White, K. Sultana, M. Asciak, J.N.Azzopardi, J.C.Borg, P.B.White, D.Calleja Cremona, K. Ekezie, M. Caribotti (K. Micallef).
