Mosta Ham­run 5 0

Mosta were the bet­ter side es­pe­cially in the sec­ond pe­riod dur­ing which they scored four goals.

They are now on 7 points from 4 games while Ham­run have only 3 points, also from 4 games.

The first two ac­tions were cre­ated by Mosta. Liam Portelli re­leased Calvin Camil­leri in the area but he drove over the bar. Camil­leri was then fouled on the right flank but the same player missed the far post from the free kick.

In Ham­run’s first ac­tion Christo­pher Galea drib­bled past an op­po­nent out­side the area but Mosta keeper Kyle Zam­mit saved his shot from the dis­tance.

Portelli served Jor­dan Vella with a cross in the area and with only Ham­run keeper Clint Borg to beat, he skied the ball from two me­tres.

Camil­leri missed the up­right from a free kick af­ter Portelli was fouled out­side the area. Then Ham­run de­fender Clyde Bon­nici han­dled the ball out­side the area but Borg saved in two at­tempts the free kick by Camil­leri.

Five min­utes be­fore the break, Mosta opened the score when Matthias For­mosa re­leased Matthew At­tard on the right flank who af­ter ad­vanc­ing, scored with a cross-shot past a help­less Borg.

The first ac­tion af­ter the restart was cre­ated by Ham­run as Vella was fouled in mid­field and af­ter the ball was partly cleared from the free kick by Cain Cu­ta­jar, Frig­gieri skied the ball from the re­bound.

Goalie Borg then saved a header by Adrian Sam­mut and soon af­ter, from a Vella cross in the area, Jay­den Aquilina failed to ap­ply the killer touch when wellplaced in the goal area.

In the 63rd minute Ham­run came very close to level mat­ters as Vella latched on to a long through ball and af­ter en­ter­ing the area the ball was cleared on the line af­ter his shot.

Mosta dou­bled their lead in the 68th minute as Vella was fouled on the right edge of the area and Camil­leri scored with a ris­ing shot from the free kick.

Be­tween the 73rd and 76th min­utes Mosta added two more goals. Camil­leri scored with a hard low grounder and Jay­den Aquilina pounced on a faulty clear­ance to score with a high drive from just out­side the area.

Two min­utes be­fore the end, the score be­came 5-0 as Karl Bianco served Jay­den Aquilina in the area and af­ter he was pushed Camil­leri made no mis­take from the penalty spot.
