SIRENS ASC………………..8

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

Valletta finally managed to win their first point with a positive performance to hold Sirens in an 8-8 draw. These were vital for Sirens as they could have climbed momentarily in second place.

It was a deserved result as both teams had their moments in the game. Sirens turned the tables in the second session, but Valletta had a good start, and continued to chase the game until they finally drew.

Valletta started the match on a high scoring twice from Michael Rizzo and Michael Cordina. Things seem to be going their way, but after Brownrigg took advantage from a blunder by Sciortino, John Napier scored from the right to equalise. Sirens were slightly better in the second session and deservedly finished the session in front thanks to a goal by their chief scorer Christian Prescuitti.

Sirens were starting to control the game as they increased their lead to three goals, but Rizzo and Spiteri Staines, kept Valletta in the game, despite Riolo scoring again for Sirens to keep a two-goal cushion.

But Valletta’s reaction in the beginning of the last session resulted in two quick goals by Mifsud and Vapenski. Presciutti put Sirens again in front. But James Spiteri Staines had other plans as he executed a well-planned action.

Valletta: R. Sciortino, J. Spiteri Staines (2), A. Agius, M. Rizzo (2), M. Fenech, R. Mock, D. Paoella, N. Bonello Ghio, M. Cordina (2), B. Vapenski (1), K. Galea, D. Fenech, A. Mifsud (1)
