Sen­glea’s bat­tle to­wards pro­mo­tion pro­gressed yes­ter­day when they re­turned to win­ning ways.

It was Sen­glea who opened the scor­ing on 25 min­utes, when Austin Obaje Smith picked up a ball from a con­sid­er­able dis­tance, drib­bled past three Pi­eta de­fend­ers and man­aged to find the cor­ner of the net from an acute an­gle.

Shirtly be­fore the break, Pi­eta man­aged to equalise thanks to Clive Gauci, who pounced on a Men­sah ef­fort that had been par­tially saved by goal­keeper Far­ru­gia to drive home from the edge of the area.

Sen­glea even­tu­ally scored what was to be the win­ning goal when on a cor­ner by Dalli, Austin Obaje Smith man­aged to con­trol the ball, turn well and fire home from close range.
