Malta Independent - - SPORT - Vic­tor Cian­gura

Qormi needed only a draw from this game to win the Group and qual­ify to com­pette in Section A but they man­aged to ob­tain three points and fin­ished on 9 points. Pem­broke will com­pete in Section B.

Pem­broke cre­ated the first ac­tion as Juan Gauci served Larkin At­tard with a through ball in the area and Qormi keeper Kras­simir Zam­mit foiled him with a timely sor­tie.

In the 19th minute, Qormi opened the score. Car­los De­bat­tista re­leased De­nil­son Borg on the left flank who then crossed the ball in the area to Sul­tana who scored with a hard rising shot past Pem­broke keeper Caine Sapi­ano.

Pem­broke then won a free kick on the left edge of the area af­ter a foul on Dyon Grima and Gauci missed the far post from the free kick.

In the last ac­tion be­fore the break Zam­mit saved a shot by At­tard from in­side the area af­ter he drib­bled past an op­po­nent.

Seven min­utes af­ter the restart, Qormi dou­bled their lead when De­nil­son Borg served Omar Borg with a cross in the area and as he was pushed and floored Garzia made no mis­take from the re­sul­tant penalty.

Qormi’s Omar Borg served De­bat­tista with a good pass in the area but the lat­ter missed the up­right by inches.

Later, sub­sti­tute Miguel Mamo served Omar Borg in the area with a cross but he headed wide. Pem­broke mounted the last ac­tion be­fore the end as Gauci served At­tard in the area but Zam­mit

foiled him with a timely sor­tie.
