Vit­to­riosa in­flict sec­ond de­feat on Mqabba

Malta Independent - - SPORTS - Vit­to­riosa S. Mqabba

Mqabba suf­fered a heavy de­feat at the hands of Vit­to­riosa, which cost them their first place on the grid.

Even though Vit­to­riosa lost their pre­vi­ous two matches, this was al­ways go­ing to be a dif­fi­cult test for Mqabba, who on the other hand had won their pre­vi­ous two out­ings.

The Stars took the lead 21 min­utes into the match, when a Liam Gauci cross found Leighton Grech un­marked, who eas­ily flicked the ball home.

they could eas­ily have dou­bled their lead barely two min­utes later, when Leighton Grech was floored in the area by Go­ran Adamovic, and the ref­eree from San Marino pointed to­wards the spot. How­ever, Ar­ber Dhrami’s from 11 me­tres fin­ished wide.

They did even­tu­ally dou­ble their lead on 59 min­utes, when a Leighton Grech ef­fort was only tem­po­rar­ily blocked by Mqabba’s de­fence, with the ball fall­ing at Gian­luca Sul­tana’s feet, whose ef­fort from out­side the area sur­prised De­bono.

Vit­to­riosa con­tin­ued to at­tack and made it 3-0 on 73 min­utes when Ar­ber Dhrami beat Jonathan De­bono with a low drive. Vit­to­riosa S.: K. Ma­gri, D. Pisani, R. Spi­teri, C. Spi­teri, L.
