Mosta and Wardija march on

Malta Independent - - SPORT -

An­other three in­ter­est­ing games in the MSV Life Masters League were played last week.

B’Kara gained their first win af­ter four games and Ji­val suf­fered their third con­sec­u­tive de­feat. Wardija beat Melita where they found some dif­fi­culty, whilst in the match of the week, Mosta beat Marsa White Stars Bar­illa con­vinc­ingly.

B’Kara man­aged to beat the resistance of Ji­val to reg­is­ter their first win of the sea­son af­ter four games.

Ji­val started brightly and af­ter seven min­utes opened the score by Abugela Wa­hashi. How­ever B’Kara soon showed their strength and went for the break lead­ing 4-1. When play restarted, it was more en­ter­tain­ing. Ji­val were giv­ing a hard time to their op­po­nents. How­ever, B’Kara kept calm and af­ter Lawrence Vella in­creased the lead to 5-1, goals were com­ing reg­u­larly.

Jean Pierre Ab­dilla scored a penalty to re­duce the gap. Man of the match Mark Deguara was in great form be­com­ing the first player this sea­son to score six goals in one game.

Al­though Wardija were the bet­ter team, Melita gave them a hard time. The dif­fer­ence was that Melita did not have the player to con­clude their at­tacks. Dur­ing the first 15 min­utes Melita stunned their op­po­nents, with their goal­keeper do­ing some re­ally spec­tac­u­lar saves. But then Wardija scored twice be­fore the break.

In the se­cond half, Wardija kept up the pres­sure to score three more goals with Brian Said get­ting a con­so­la­tion goal for Melita in the last three min­utes.

Mosta Shaggy Pub, like Wardija, kept march­ing on to reg­is­ter their fourth win and go top with max­i­mum points. Mosta were su­pe­rior to Marsa White Stars. To be fair Marsa felt badly the ab­sence of some reg­u­lar play­ers.

Mosta made sure in the first half lead­ing 7-1 show­ing some lively col­lec­tive foot­ball. Al­though Mosta re­duced their tempo in the se­cond pe­riod they still con­tin­ued to dic­tate mat­ters and were good enough to get four more goals.
