2019-20 BOV Second Division – Matchday 11

07/12/2019

 

SAN ĠWANN 3
MARSAXLOKK 1
(HT 1-1) (Luxol Stadium)
0-1 R. Micallef 12; 1-1 L. Mallia 22; 2-1 J. Zammit, pen. 62; 3-1 A. Zammit 74.
 


The young team of San Ġwann are firmly in the promotion race after beating Marsaxlokk 3-1, overtaking the southseasiders in the BOV Second Division standings.

 

The match started well for Marsaxlokk with Ryan Micallef opening the scoring after 12 minutes. Ten minutes later, Luca Mallia drew level for San Ġwann after good work by Nezar Abouaisha and Courage Omoruanzoje.
 

Just after the hour, San Ġwann were awarded a penalty after a foul on Abouaisha inside the box. Veteran Justin Zammit made no mistake from the spot to put the Saints 2-1 up.

 

In the 73rd minute, San Ġwann defender Owen Spiteri and Marsaxlokk’s Micallef were shown the red card for retaliation. A minute later, San Ġwann sealed the three points thanks to a wonderful goal by 16-year-old substitute Andrea Zammit. He produced a fine move to create space inside the box, connecting with an inch-perfect Abouaisha pass before drilling home.

 

The team led by Jean-Paul Desira now share second spot in the standings with Mġarr United, three points behind leaders Marsa.

SIĠĠIEWI 1
KIRKOP UNITED 0
(HT 1-0) (Sirens Stadium)
D. Galea 14

 

Siġġiewi inflicted the first league defeat on Kirkop United thanks to a solitary goal scored in the first half.

 

It was an entertaining clash with both teams showing good football. The all-important goal was scored by veteran Darren Galea in the 14th minute. Although Kirkop had their fair share of chances, the organised Siġġiewi team managed to hold on to their slender lead until the very end.
 

With Għaxaq dropping points as well, Siġġiewi, under the charge of Mauro Delceppo, are now in second place, two behind league leaders Attard and two ahead of Kirkop. Għaxaq and Msida St Joseph follow on 17 points, one clear of Għargħur who are also in the promotion race.
