JIVAL SUFFER FIRST DEFEAT

Jival suffered theIr first defeat after five games when they lost against leaders Valletta 7 - 4 in the CISK Division One Masters League.

Jival started the game on a high note and with some lively moves surprised Valletta. They dominated the first half when they took a deserved lead of 3-0. However, after the break Jival lost touch and all concentration with the result that Valleta took over.

With some Jival players argueing between themselves, Valletta took the opportunity to come back and score six consecutive goals. After Jival got one back, Elton Azzopardi gave Jival the final blow scoring another goal.

The game between two bottom teams in the standings, finished with ZURRIEQ WOLVES beating TAL-QROQQ 12-6 to register their second win.

The first half was interesting with Zurrieq getting four goals with TAL-QROQQ answering back to get a draw before the rest period.

Zurrieq played much better in the second half and with fast break-aways they took a lead of 7-4, and 10-5, finishing with a good win, with Tal-Qroqq getting two goals in between.

Tal-Qroqq together with bottom team Zabbar St. Patrick are still waiting to register their first win.
