MOSTA SHAGGY MAINTAIN TOP SPOT

At the start of the second phase, the teams were divided in two divisions, Mosta Shaggy Pub won again to maintain top spot in the MSVLIFE Premier League.

But Mosta had some difficulty before beating Marsa White Stars Barilla 8-5. Marsa were the best side in the first half taking a lead of 5-2, with James Galea being their best scorer.

However, if anyone taught that Mosta were finished, they were mistaken as Mosta came back strongly in the second half dominating from start to finish with some entertaining football and scoring six goals with no reply from Marsa.

Rabat Cavette are passing through a good period. They managed to beat the stiff resistance of B’kara Masters to register another win 9-8 with two decisive goals in the last two minutes.

B’kara were leading 7-6 going for the break after a balanced and interesting first half with Ryan Debattista and Alex Abdilla being their best performers, scoring five goals between them.

But Rabat went all out in the second half, and after suffering an early goal, they took control to score three important goals to go second in the standings.

In the Division One League, Zurrieq Wolves deserved their win against JIVAL 9-3.

Zurrieq showed improvement in their play and had Roderick Caruana scoring five and being voted the man of the match. Jival gave their best in the first half but they could do nothing against the forceful play of Zurrieq.

In the other game from this division, ZABBAR ST. Patrick had an easy win against bottom club TAL-QROQQ 15-3, dominating throughout.

They were already 6-1 in the lead going from the break. In the second-half, they kept scoring at leisure with Stefan Aquilina and Gilbert Scerri scoring five each. With this win they went top in the standing with a game in hand over Valletta.
