QORMI MAINTAIN PERFECT START

Qormi maintained their perfect start in the National Hockey League after a 1-0 win over Laferla White Hart.

As early as the first minute Qormi were awarded a penalty corner and White Hart’s keeper, Ramon Chircop, affected a diving save to keep his goal intact.

Qormi spent the greater part of the game pounding White Hart’s defences but were denied by a well-organized tactical plan, coupled with an outstanding goalkeeping display by Chircop.

In fact by half time Qormi had won nine penalty corners but had not been able to break the deadlock.

The second half continued on the same pattern with the pace of the game becoming more frantic, White Hart gaining in confidence as the game wore on while Qormi continued their barrage on their opponent’s post.

On 51 minutes White Hart were awarded their first penalty corner and Qormi’s custodian Shamison Mifsud dived to his right to push away a close range shot which was destined to go into the net.

Qormi finally went ahead in the 65th minute when Juan Sarcia hit a bullet into the far corner of the net as a result of yet another penalty corner action.

The game drew to a close with Qormi winning this tussle 1-0 to consolidate their position at the top of the table at the end of the first round of the league.
