24.09.17 U17s: Pembroke defeat Swieqi again
Pembroke confined Swieqi to another defeat in the U17 Group Stages and to football in Section C this season after a 4-2 loss against our neighbours.
However, things could have easily been different had the Orange maintained their positive start to the game. Swieqi who took the lead after twenty-five minutes as Timmy Bonello scored from outside the box. A few minutes later Daniele Ferlaino doubled the lead after a free kick taken by Isaac hit the cross bar. With the first half ending 2-0 to Swieqi, a positive result seemed to be on the cards at the time.
The second half proved to be a completely different affair, however, as Pembroke showed their quality and scored four goals to turn the game around in their favour.
The next game for the squad is a difficult cup fixture against Pieta` on Saturday 7 October at the Rabat Ground.
Lineup: Mike Micallef, Isaac Ruggier, Timmy Bonello, Isaac Camilleri, Justyn Tabone, Ryan Calleja, James Mercieca, David Cardona, Andrew Catania, Daniele Ferlaino, Sasha Peric
