Fgura United Marsa 1 2

Marsa man­aged to reg­is­ter a very im­por­tant 2-1 vic­tory against fel­low strug­glers Fgura. Marsa, who had been at the bot­tom of the ta­ble be­fore the match, man­aged to lift them­selves out of the last spot and move fur­ther up.

This was the fourth con­sec­u­tive de­feat for Fgura, but at least they man­aged to score a goal, hav­ing failed to score any in their pre­vi­ous three out­ings. In fact, Fgura so far have the worst for­ward line, hav­ing scored only four goals in seven matches.

It was a very bal­anced en­counter, where Fgura were slightly bet­ter in the first 45 min­utes, with Marsa be­ing very much im­proved in the sec­ond half.

It was Fgura who opened the scor­ing af­ter 13 min­utes of play, when on a Dy­lan Agius cross, Joseph Chet­cuti’s header was too much for goal­keeper Caru­ana.

Fgura were again dan­ger­ous on the half hour, when Joseph Chet­cuti sprinted well into the Marsa area but there was Yes­sous Camil­leri who in­ter­vened at the right mo­ment.

On 66 min­utes, Marsa were awarded a penalty when Kento Sakurai was fouled in the area by Jadean Waseem. From the spot, Lucy Omerou hit home.

With only a cou­ple of min­utes left to play, Lucky Omerou man­aged to dis­pos­sess an op­po­nent out­side the area, drib­bled past two de­fend­ers to shoot past goal­keeper Matthew Camil­leri.
