Sirens 8

(1-2, 1-0, 3-1, 1-5)

Neptunes’ seasn took another blow as they were defeated 8-6 by Sirens who made a brilliant comeback in the final session.

Now Neptunes are also risking their place among the top three, while permitting San Giljan to edge closer to the title.

Despite not being at their best, Neptunes were slightly better than their opponents in the first half of the game. But their collapse in the last session showed that they have big problems as their lost their shape and practically Sirens did what they wanted.

Sirens had a bright start to the match, scoring twice with twoi typical goals by centre John Brownrigg. Neptunes pulled one back from Jordan Camilleri, and managed to equalise in the second session with the only goal of the session scored by Frenchman Romain Blary, beating Nicholas Grixti with a powerful strike.

Neptunes managed to take the lead for the first time in the third session, as Jordan Camilleri scored his second goal of the game after a mistake by Grixti and Stevie Camilleri opened up a three-goal lead, but David Cutajar managed to pull one back.

The champions restored their three-goal advantage in the last session with a goal by Sean Gravina. But the game had a twist as Sirens were commanding play, operating numerous times with counterattacks as the Neptunes’ defence was completely out of shape.

David Cutajar and Marc Grech got Sirens back in the game, and Isaiah Riolo equalised after a good run from another counter-attack. Christian Presciutti put Sirens in front from a penalty, and Clint Mercieca sealed the win with a minute left from another counter-attack.
