SIRENS ASC…………………………….6


(2-2), (1-0), (1-1), (2-3)

Sirens and Exiles Jetfreight took a point each as they finished 6-6 in a stalemate. It was a goal right at the end of the game by Sean Xerri de Caro that denied Sirens to stay with maximum points. It was a quiet match, where Exiles’ determination proved to be fruitful, as they were never in the lead but always responded after each goal scored by their opponents.

Sirens held the lead twice in the second session after goals by David Cutajar and Marc Grech, but Exiles equalised in both occasions through Nikic and Stellini. The second session was also quiet and after a span of a bit more than half of the session, Marc Grech scored what proved to be the only goal of the session to give his team a 3-2 lead before the break.

Slobodan Nikic scored his second goal of the game after the restart, but it was the time for Christian Presciutti to put his name on the score sheet to keep his team with a one-goal lead before the last session. Exiles started the last session determined to win their first point and scored in immediately from Nikic. But like the whole game, Sirens went again in the lead with the second goal of David Cutajar. Michele Stellini levelled again, and Exiles pushed for the goal that will put them in the lead for the first time.

But Sirens were given a penalty and Christian Presciutti made no mistake. They were destined to win the match, but in the last action of the game, Exiles had a man-up and with the last shot of the game, Sean Xerri de Caro beat Nicholas Grixti from close range to save a point.
