22.01.17 Seniors: Ruthless Swieqi defeat Gudja
Swieqi United faced Gudja in a tricky encounter for the orange. Gudja had previously lost 0-6 v San Gwann whilst Swieqi had won by the same margin against Attard and as predicted the Southerners were compact and very tight at the back. It must also be said that throughout the game Swieqi should have scored more goals had not Gudja's keeper been in splendid form. The Orange went ahead on 38 minutes when Alan schembri wismayer feigned a shot and neatly dispatched the ball past the keeper. After the break Gudja were awarded a penalty after a clumsy challenge but the kick was blazed over the bar. Swieqi thereupon took advantage and scored a second through Kenneth Ekezie before gudja were reduced to 10 men after a sending off. Substitute Bruno Menezes then made it 3-0 late on with a beautiful shot from outside the box to wrap up a vital 3 points for the orange.
