VALLETTA ST. PAULI SUFFER FIRST DEFEAT

Valletta St. Pauli lost their first game in the CISK Masters Division One League with Melita Celtics closing the gap to three points at the top.

Melita returned to winnings ways after losing to Valletta in their previous game, while the leaders lost against Tal-Qroqq Versity (photo) 6-5 in a very close and balanced game, with Simon Borg in great form scoring four, beside Malcolm Borg having a good game.

After this success Tal-Qroqq were registering their second win producing a well organized and determined side.

As for Vallletta they missed Gilbert Agius, but were also a team with players not confident in themselves and the normal coordination of the team was missing.

Melita beat Targa Gap 8-7 in another interesting game with the result uncertain till the last minutes. The sending off of player Kurt Coleiro helped Melita to take the upper hand and register a close win after being in arrears for a long period.

Targa Gap are a valid team with some quality players but some of them have to control their nerves . The sending off of one of their players was their second consecutive one.

As usual Michael Galea of Melita was their best scorer with four and continued to built on his lead at the top of the Best Scorers list.

Targa Gap three days before had beaten ZABBAR 4-3 in a game full of nerves, from start to finish. The referee had to send off two players, Simon Place for Targa Gap and Mark Pullicino for Zabbar. Zabbar are still waiting for their first win.

Simon Place is a player wiith a strong physic, typical British. He contributed a lot for his team’s success wth a good game scoring one and giving some accurate dangerous passes.

However, before the end of the first half he was lucky thathe was not sent out after fouling an oponent in a no ball situation, shown only a yellow card. With this win Targa Gap are now well placed in the standings.

Both games from the MAPFRE/MSV Life Masters Premier League had to be called off after heavy rain that made the ground dangerous to play on.

In fact the first game, was stopped by the referee after the first half with leaders Marsa White Stars losing 3-1 to DinglI. The second half of this game will be played later on as well as the other game.
