Zeb­bug R Melita 2 2

Melita and Zeb­bug shared four goals in an ex­cit­ing 2-2 draw with Melita bounc­ing back in the sec­ond half to can­cel the first half half two-goal deficit.

Zeb­bug had a dream start when af­ter barely sixty sec­onds they forged ahead when Charles Ikenna Kean scored af­ter an ir­re­sistible run. Two min­utes later Melita hit back with an Ivan Tufegdzic header that was well saved by Az­zopardi.

On 36 min­utes Melita went close again with a Borg Olivier header fol­low­ing a Tufegdzic cross from the right, with the ball well saved by the alert Az­zopardi. Four min­utes from the break Zeb­bug dou­bled the score when Pace passed to­wards Charles Ikenna Kean who scored his sec­ond goal of the match with a well taken shot on the turn.

Melita were the bet­ter team in the sec­ond half and re­duced the ar­rears on the hour when Alan Borg Olivier was floored by mandic and from the penalty spot Ivan Tufegdzic made no mis­take. Four min­utes later Melita drew level when a Kurt Pace cross was met by Alan Borg Olivier who headed beau­ti­fully home.
