Mosta and Wardija march on
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.
