Malta Independent - - SPORT -

Marsa 2 Vit­to­riosa S 0 With a goal in each half Marsa ob­tained their sec­ond vic­tory of the sea­son de­feat­ing Vit­to­riosa in a low pro­file match. Marsa fully de­served their vic­tory as they now join Melita and Zeb­bug on the six­point mark at the bot­tom of the ta­ble.

Marsa took only eighty sec­onds to open the score when a melee en­sued in front of goal with Scorfna’s shot cleared off the goal line, but Lucky Omerou was on hand to drill the ball home.

Vit­to­riosa hit back with a Pe­tar Mr­vic header miss­ing the tar­get and on ten min­utes an El­land Vella close range ef­fort was blocked by Mer­cieca.

On 13 min­utes Vit­to­riosa had a good move with Dun­can Pisani pass­ing to­wards Ar­ber Dhrami who hit the side net­ting when well placed. Vit­to­riosa cre­ated some pres­sure on the Marsa fort but goal­keeper Caru­ana was never called to make dar­ing saves.

Six min­utes from time Marsa’s Yes­sous Camil­leri had a free header in front of goal but he com­pletely missed the tar­get and just be­fore the break sub­sti­tute Lin­coln Mi­callef blasted the ball over the bar from ten me­ters.

On the re­sump­tion Yes­sous Camil­leri tested Mer­cieca with a header and on the other end a Liam Gauci free­kick went off tar­get.

On the hour Saku­rai passed to­wards Mi­callef whose ef­fort was blocked by a de­fender and from the re­sul­tant cor­ner Lucky Omerou’s ef­fort slightly missed the base of the upright.

Half way through the sec­ond half, sub­sti­tute Steve Agius fired a mis­sile for the top cor­ner, but Caru­ana made an im­pres­sive save. Six min­utes from time Marsa sealed the is­sue with a sec­ond goal when sub­sti­tute Luis An­dre De Melo Lima drib­bled his way past a cou­ple of de­fend­ers be­fore fir­ing past a help­less Mer­cieca.
