29.02.16 Swieqi lose entertaining encounter
Swieqi United lost by the odd goal in seven against Zabbar St. Patrick's at the Mosta ground. In a goal-fest encounter, Kane Micallef put Swieqi ahead on 3 minutes through a low powerful shot before Zabbar equalised three minutes later. Zabbar's Brazilian forward made it 2-1 right before half-time through a powerful header past the hapless Sam Bartolo.
In the second half, Swieqi started very brightly and missed some good chances whilst Zabbar based their approach on the counter-attack. They scored the third and killer goal on 65 minutes and made it four-one merely 4 minutes later.
A late Swieqi rally resulted in a penalty won by Mark Martin and converted by Patrick Briscoe White. Deep into added time, Kristian Sultana reduced the deficit through a strong header but it was too little too late for the Orange.
Formation: S. Bartolo, D. Grech, K. Sultana, J.B. White, J.N. Azzopardi, P.B.White, R. Southward (M. Asciak), K. Micallef, N. Schembri (M. Martin), K. Ekezie (B. Frendo), A.Dos Santos.
