07.01.15 U19s lose direct encounter
Yesterday evening Swieqi U19s had a disappointing result to their second round efforts with a 1-0 loss to Xghajra Tornadoes, now giving both teams equal points in first place.
It was a game were Swieqi played well and created several chances but failed to finish any of them. Missing some key players such as Neil Farrugia and Kurt Giacchino the youngsters did well to adapt to the instructions given by their coach. Xghajra's goalkeeper also pulled off some wonderful saves and Swieqi were unlucky to hit the crossbar from a Liam Fenech try and Daniel Bezzina also hit the post from a free kick.
It was a bitter pill to swallow coming from an unbeaten first round, but the Young Owls will certainly look to next Monday's match versus Marsaxlokk to get things as they should be.
