31.10.16 Swieqi grab dramatic draw vs Zabbar
Swieqi United grabbed a last gasp dramatic draw against the Southerners at the Mosta Stadium last night. In fairness, it was nothing less than Swieqi deserved after dominating most of the proceedings throughout the 90'.
In the first half, the best chance of the game fell to Roderick Taliana whose close range shot was miraculously saved by the Zabbar goalkeeper. Shortly after the break, Swieqi again went close but could not capitalise before Zabbar broke the deadlock on 74' minutes thanks to a powerful header from Karl Sacco.
However, in the dying minutes the substitues Ion-Alin Margarit and Sean Gatt Baldacchino combined to produce a great cross which saw Taliana finally head it home and rescue a vital point for the Orange.
