Zebbug and San Gwann maintain winning streak


Żebbuġ Youngsters and San Ġwann Pro Evolution Academy maintained their perfect streak in the MAFA Second Division 15 days before their top of the table clash.

Żebbuġ recorded their sixth win of the season as they saw off Żejtun Laċċi 4-0. The top scorer of the league Joao Orban was once again in fine form as he scored a hat-trick while Matthew Bugeja added another one for his team.

Referee: Jason Penza.

San Ġwann Pro Evolution Academy edged Mosta Vikings 3-2. After establishi­ng a three-goal advantage courtesy of Sefa Onmaz, Liam Grandehomm­e and Wissam Bensaidi, the Vikings made a reaction in the last part of the game with Calvin Agius coming to the fore with a quick brace. Unfortunat­ely it was too late in the day for the Mosta side as they succumbed to their fourth defeat of the season. Referee: Jonathan Balzan. Balluta Barracudas obtained the biggest win of the weekend as they easily disposed of Fgura Spartans 6-0. Nick Borg was the Cudas' hero as he netted a hattrick with Diego Mora hitting the target twice. Jorge Benitez completed the score for the winners.
