RABAT THIRD TIME LUCKY

Rabat won the Easter Tournament in an interesting final game beating the challenge offered by Zabbar Masters 10- 4.

This was the third tournament organised this season and Rabat after being final and losing the first two, managed to win the third one. Rabat with due respect to Zabbar were the better team and deserved to win.

The game remained balanced throughout the first half, but in the second after the teams drew 4-4, from then onwards Zabbar could not find a solution to stop the attacking flair of Rabat with Jeffrey Zammit and Chris Muscat sharing seven goals between them, Zammit getting five.

For Zabbar who had some regular players missing, the goals were shared between four different players. The game was well controlled by referee Ray Ambrogio.

Another game from the Championship ended with a handsome win by Mosta Shaggy Pub against Zurrieq Wolves 11-4 and now Mosta that ended their commitments remain with a chance of finishing third in the final standings.

Both teams had some players injured, however Mosta had Leonandros Callleja in fine form scoring no less than five goals with Zelsca Ancic getting three.

In the meantime, the Masters Team Selection took part in a tournament in Gozo organised by the Standing Committee of the small association of the MFA.

The team was at a disadvantage playing with players over 35 year against teams that had players of younger age. However, the team played good attractive football, winning one game from three, but were unlucky in the other two.

The selection team will now prepare for more friendly games, one against a Italian team from Puglia and the other against a Scottish team next Septemer.
