05.12.14 Women get their first win ever!
Swieqi United Women's team got their first three points last tuesday after beating Lija four goals to nill. It was Kristina Agius who went on the score sheet first when a brilliant move by Daniela Maggi in mid-field found Marce unmarked who crafted a pass in the penelty box to find Agius. 10 minutes later, Swieqi got the ball at the back of the net but the referee ordered a free-kick for a foul on the Lija keeper. This did not disheart the girls as a brilliant ball in by Maria Elena Grech found Becky Naudi who dribbled the opponent, shifted to the left and curled a low shot into the net.
In the second half, Naudi pushed forward with a strong kick in the Lija half and had a shot on goal as the keeper was wrongly placed. From the rebound, Maria Elena did no mistake as she stood just 2 meters away from the goal line. 10 minutes from time the referee ordered a penelty and Swieqi got a chance for the poker! Kate kept her cool and blasted a good shot at the top right corner giving the keeper no chance of getting anywhere near.
This game goes in the record books as Swieqi Women's team manage to get their first ever win of the season!
