BALZAN AND FLORIANA PLAY OUT DRAW

Balzan Youths came from a goal down to salvage a point against Floriana after a 1-1 draw and open a four-point lead at the top of the Premier League.

Floriana broke the deadlock on 35 minutes when Mario Fontanella dribbled past two Balzan’s defenders before beating goalkeeper Ivan Janjusevic.

After the break on 60 minutes the Youths leveled the matters when Alfred Effiong crossed to Carlos Eduardo de Fiori Mendes who shot past the Greens custodian Akpan.

Seventeen minutes later Balzan went very near to take the lead when a Bojan Kaljevic’s header was cleared off the line by Enzo Ruiz.
