15.02.16 Costly errors condemn Swieqi to damaging defeat
Swieqi United were unable to keep up their winning momentum when they lost 1-2 to Mgarr at the Sirens Stadium. The Orange started the game very well and were denied an early goal when Kenneth Ekezie's header was adjudged to be offside. The Orange kept on pressing for that early goal in the first 45 minutes but were denied by some plucky Mgarr defending.
Billy Mock's encouraging team talk did seem to make the difference and Ekezie scored after just 1 minute of play in the second half to put the orange ahead. Unfortunately, a defensive mix-up then allowed Lazar Doric to equalise for Mgarr 2 minutes later before the same Doric scored the winning goal from a header in the 82' minute.
Formation: S. Bartolo, M. Asciak, D. Grech, J.B. White, K. Sultana, D. Calleja Cremona (S. Sammut), J.C. Borg, P. B. White, A. Dos Santos (M. Caribotti), K. Ekezie, N. Schembri (J.N. Azzopardi)
