Tarxien 0 San Ġwann 6
San Ġwann had a very easy task to beat Tarxien who offered a very feeble challenge. The final scoreline indicates that there was only one team in the game.
From the very first whistle, San Ġwann went straight on the offensive. Aiden Vella dribbled past an opponent on the left flank who then crossed the ball to Jamie Nicholl in the area but he failed to get his head to the ball. Benjamin Hili released Vella on the left flank and after his cross the ball was cleared away with difficulty.
In the first action by Taxien Zackary Majri was fouled in midfield and from the free kick by Dean Meilak the ball was easily cleared away.
San Ġwann resumed with their pressing.From a right flank cross by Jake Micallef the ball was partly cleared outside the area and Matteo Tanti missed the upright from the rebound shot and Micallef then set Hili through in the area and he drove slightly out.
In the 15th minute, San Ġwann opened the score after a choral move between three players. Alec Newell served Vella on the left flank who then crossed the ball in the area to Hili who scored with a hard low shot past Tarxien keeper Saviour Al Ali.
The pressing from San Ġwann resumed as they created two more actions. After a Vella flag kick the ball was cleared on the line from a header by Hili and Vella then released Jamie Nicholl in the area but he missed the upright. In an action by Tarxien Tristan Sammut won a ball on the right flank and as he tried his luck from the distance san Ġwann keeper Joel Micallef saved his shot in two attempts. Just before the break san Ġwann doubled their lead as Matteo Tanti served Hili in the area and he scored with a low drive.
Minutes after the restart San Ġwann kept pressing as they mounted two actions. Micallef was fouled on the right flank and Vella drove slightly over the bar from the free kick and Micallef then controlled a loose ball on the edge of the area and Al Ali saved his shot in two attempts.
San Ġwann scored two more goals in the space of two minutes in the 41st and 42nd minutes. Vella served Hili in the area who scored with a lobbed ball and Tanti dribbled past two opponents on the edge of the area and he scored with a hard low shot to make it 4-0. Al Ali then saved a header by Hili after a well-taken free kick by Vella.
It became 5-0 in the 50th minute as Hili dribbled past an opponent on the edge of the area and he scored with a lobbed ball and in an action by Tarxien Charlton Farrugia was fouled on the left flank and from the free kick by Dean Meilak the ball was easily cleared away.
