END OF FIRST PHASE

The last three games played this week of the MSVLIFE Masters League brought to an end the first phase of the competition.

Next week the teams will split up into two sections. The first six will play in the PREMIER LEAGUE, whilst the last six will compete in DIVISION ONE.

This was decided in the last General Meeting of the association. The second phase will have two leagues that should be balanced and could offer entertaining encounters.

The PREMIER LEAGUE will consist of he following teams: Mosta Shaggy Pub, Dingli Desana, Wardija, Rabat Cavette, Marsa Whie Stars Barilla and B’Kara Masters.
The Division One League will have the following teams: Valletta Masters, Zabbar St. Patrick, Melita Celtics, Jival, Zurrieq Wolves and Tal-Qroqq Versity.
In the last three games of the first phase, MOSTA SHAGGYS PUB had a comfortable win against modest TAL-QROQQ team 11 – 3 with Ibrahim Tarik and Cedric Sciberras scoring four goals each with Jeffrey Chetcuti an all rounder player scoring the remaining three.

Tal-Qroqq tried hard and they had some good moves, but they failed badly infront of goal. David Grima scored a beauty with Carlos Camenzuli scoring the remaininng two. Tal-Qroqq were the admiration of all. Although being inferior, they keep on playing and try till the end with excellent sportsmanship and friendlyness.

MARSA WHITE STARS BARILLA beat B’KARA MASTERS 12-7 after leading 6-3 going for the break. Marsa have an interesting team, playing good coordination football and improving by each game.

James Galea was his usual self, always dangeous and managed four goals, but their best was Kurt Firmosa, a useful player and giving good passes to his colleagues, besides scoring five goals himself. B’kara were not with their best team and they struggled in the first half.

However, they improved in the second half, but still could not stop their opponents from building up the score. At one point they came close to 5-6, but then Marsa scored five consecutive goals and that was the end.

In the last game, Zabbar ST. PARICK managed to beat RABAT CAVETTE 7 – 5 in an interesting encounter wit the fina score still uncertain till the last minutes.

Zabbar played one of their best games with Gilbert Scerri their best player also scoring five goals and creating more chances.

Rabat were not their usual self. Chris Muscat played well but was keeping the ball too much. In the second hafl Rabat created several chances but failed to profit, besides finding goalkeper Mauro Valastro.
