Sirens back to win­ning ways

Malta Independent - - SPORT -

A Miguel Ciantar goal in the sec­ond half was enough for Sirens to beat Pi­eta and re­turn to win­ning ways after two con­sec­u­tive de­feats.

It was a de­served win in an in­ter­est­ing af­fair, with Sirens show­ing the bet­ter ideas es­pe­cially in the sec­ond half.

Min­utes later Chris­tian Caru­ana tried his luck from just out­side the box with the ball fin­ish­ing slightly over the bar.

Pi­eta’s first shot at goal came on 17 min­utes through Neil Pace Cocks whose ef­fort how­ever went wide.

On 23 min­utes a Miguel Ciantar free­kick was bril­liantly saved by Ja­cob Chir­cop.

After this shot the game had a quite patch with prac­ti­cally no shots at goal. On 33 min­utes Pi­eta went close with a Gabriel Men­sah shot from the edge of the area that was de­flected to a corner by a Sirens de­fender and from the same corner Men­sah was first on the ball but his header went wide.

On 58 min­utes Sirens forged ahead when a Vaduva shot was par­tially saved by Chir­cop and from the re­bound Miguel Ciantar was on hand to ham­mer the ball home.

Sirens held the up­per hand for the rest of the game with Pi­eta only com­ing close on 89 min­utes when Jan Busut­til’s ef­fort was saved by Cini with the ball fin­ish­ing against the up­right.
