17.03.14 Swieqi Win and are just 3 points from Promotion!
The Orange bounced back from last week's loss against Attard by beating Luqa St. Andrew's 2-0. Swieqi should have buried the game in the opening minutes when Kenneth Ekezie missed two great chances whilst Gatt Coleiro and Dos Santos also went close. Nevertheless, Swieqi got the breakthrough on 45 minutes. Luqa were penalised for dangerous play in the box and from the ensuing indirect free kick, Matthew Fenech made no mistake as his shot found its way into the roof of the net.
The second half was a rather quiet affair with Luqa going close on two occasions. Substitute Omar Smeir went close when his long range shot was well parried by the Luqa keeper before Abner Dos Santos made sure of things when his low shot after a scramble in the box left the keeper with no chance. 3 points and the Orange keep moving on!
