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

Sirens now enjoy a better advantage in the Relegation Pool, as they opened up the games with their third victory on the trot, against Exiles, who were not so distant from their opponents, as in the previous two defeats. Sirens had to stay on their toes, as Exiles remained close for three sessions, before two quick strikes, in the last period, gave Sirens a good enough platform. Still Exiles reduced their deficit once more, for a more than respectable score. Sean Gravina returned from his one game suspension, for Exiles, but his brother’s, Edward, place was taken by Luca Felice. Sirens again had Matteo Muscat as their second custodian, in lieu of Joseph Cremona. Exiles scored twice from their five man ups, with Sirens netting three times from seven.

John Napier gave Sirens their first advantage, with Julian Rizzo Naudi replying for Exiles. Before the end of the session Marc Grech restored Sirens’ lead. In teh next period Sirens added on three more goals, but in between Exiles managed two strikes of their own. Gabriel Pace and a couple of goals for Sergi Mora for Sirens, and two more goals from Rizzo Naudi for Exiles, had Sirens on a 5-3 advantage, at the interval.

After the break Napier increased Sirens’ lead, but Exiles were back in real contention, as Andrea Bianchi and Milos Vukicevic had their side just a goal behind. Sergi Mora came to Sirens’ rescue, netting twice more, the first one from a penalty, as Sirens went into the last quarter on an 8-5 advantage. Two qucik strikes, from amn ups, by Jacob Sciberras and Zach Mizzi, killed off the match. Sean Gravina reduced Exiles’ deficit, and then Exiles were awarded two penalties in succession, with Vukicevic seeing goalie, Nicky Grixti saving his first attempt, in the Sirens’ goal, but then scoring from the next one. There wasn’t much time left, with Sirens playing out the rest of the encounter.
