06.03.16 Swieqi 17s succumb to late goals in each half
Swieqi 0 -2 Zebbug
Swieqi played Zebbug at Zabbar on Saturday 5th of March. The match began rather slowly as a number of balls from both teams were lost due to the strong wind. Half time approached and despite a few good saves by E. Gatt and a super save by the Zebbug keeper, the game had stalemate written all over it. Just before the stroke of half time Zebbug capitalised on Swieqi’s defensive errors and made it 1-0.
In the second half Swieqi tried to force the draw but another top quality save kept Swieqi out. E.Edwards was then brought down as he faced goal but nothing more than a freekick was awarded. Zebbug consolidated their lead late on making it 2-0.
