28.09.14 U19s take their maximum points vs Ghaxaq
Swieqi United faced up to Ghaxaq in a bitterly contested game which saw two players sent off. It was Swieqi who made all the early running but failed to capitalize on some good chances presented. Luca Borg and Kurt Fenech both wasted good sitters but the former finally got his break. As he was rounding the goalkeeper, Borg was brought down in the box with Benji Frendo slotting in the penalty. The second half proved to be more lively. First, Swieqi made it 2-0 thanks to Kurt Giacchino's low belter before Ghaxaq reduced arrears after Kurt Fenech was adjudged to have handled the ball in the box. Thereupon, Swieqi profited from a goalkeeper miscalculation as the ball bounced over the Ghaxaq keeper allowing Luca Borg to slot in the third. The Greens made life tough as they did manage to pull a goal back, but had their keeper sent off for a last-ditch challenge on Luca Borg. Thereupon, Swieqi also had Jonathan Xuereb sent off for retaliation. Neil Farrugia settled the score with a low shot to make it 4-2. A gruelling encounter but a much needed victory for the our young boys.
