26.04.17 Swieqi finish in 5th place despite last-day defeat!
The Orange ended their season with a 0-3 defeat against 2nd placed Qrendi, who were themselves celebrating a historic promotion to the First Division.
Going into the game, the coaching staff decided to rest a number of players due to the crucial minors game which will be played on Tuesday. That ensured players like Kyle Calleja Stafrace, Edward Fenech Adami and Nikolai Dimech got much valued game time. With Kenneth Ekezie also unavailable, Daniel Camilleri made his full debut for the Seniors squad.
Qrendi's Giovanni Galea converted a penalty on the 3rd minute to put them ahead and a brace by Josuel Spiteri on the 38th and 44th increased the lead further. Qrendi were never really in danger of conceding and both sides played out an enjoyable and relaxed second-half.
Formation: Sam Bartolo, Dean Grech (Luke Gatt), Glendon Refalo, Stian Nilsen, Roderick Taliana, Dylan Gouder, Daniel Camilleri (Matthew Farrugia), Edward Fenech Adami, Kyle Calleja Stafrace (Pierre Muscat), Nikolai Dimech, Luke Scicluna
