BOV Second Division 2019/20

MATCHDAY 16

08.02.2020
MĠARR UNITED…1
ŻURRIEQ…2
(HT 1-2) (Luxol Stadium)
0-1 C.Calleja 16, 0-2 M.Bonnici 25, 1-2 G.Saliba, pen, 31.

Żurrieq threw the BOV Division Two promotion issue wide open after achieving a slender 2-1 victory over a depleted Mġarr United. Zurrieq took the lead on 16 minutes when a fine pass by Ryan Farrugia released Claudio Calleja who slammed a great shot past a hapless Tyrone Gauci. 

Matters went from bad to worse for Mħarr but distinctly better for Żurrieq who doubled the score on 25 minutes. A fine corner by Claudio Calleja saw veteran centre-back Mauro Bonnici head a bullet past Gauci for Żurrieq’s second goal, a well-deserved lead.

 

Mġarr got back in the game just after the half-hour mark when early substitute Gordon Saliba hit a penalty past Carmelo Caruana who, a minute earlier, saved a magnificent effort by Jamie Lee Micallef. Although Mġarr pressed hard for an equaliser in the second half, they could not find a way past a resolute Zurrieq defence who held on for an important victory.

MATCHDAY 14

KIRKOP UNITED       0
DINGLI SWALLOWS 0
(Centenary Stadium)
 
 
A tight first half between both teams was almost devoid of goalscoring chances.
 
Kirkop had an opportunity when Karl Caruana was in the clear on the half hour mark but his attempt to round Wallace Galea in the Dingli goal was cleared. On 71 minutes, Kirkop again had a good chance when new entrant Abeeb Williams crossed a low ball to Ayrton Buhagiar who could not connect from just inside the box. 
 
 
Dingli had the best chance of the match in added time when Gianluca Theuma managed to enter the box and after evading a defender slammed a shot against the crossbar with Carabott beaten. The rebound fell to Tasic who could only lob over the bar with Kirkop surviving to earn a point.
