05.09.17 Minors League: Swieqi United thump Dingli Swallows
Swieqi United's Under 19s produced a magnificent display at Dingli when they brushed aside the Swallows 6-0.
From the onset, Swieqi took firm control of the encounter and were unlucky not to open the scoring early on when Jake Scerri missed a great sitter. Fortunately, the Orange's composure paid dividends when Jake Scerri converted a rebound from a missed penalty and the same Scerri added another goal right before half-time.
The demolition was completed in the second half. First, Luke Taliana latched onto a good pass and scored from close range before Swieqi were awarded a penalty for a foul on Kurt Darmanin. The same Darmanin then scored through a 'Panenka' to make it 4-0. Swieqi added a fifth when Isah Doma Yusuf scored from the under the post. Kurt Darmanin then completed the rout to cap a stellar performance by the young Owls.
Formation: Edward Gatt, Martin Grech (Luke Mamo), Dayle Borg (Isah Doma Yusuf), Benji Frendo (C), Thomas P. Debono, Luke Gatt, Matthew Camilleri, Gary Bugeja, Ben Caruana, Jake Scerri, (Kurt Darmanin) Luke Taliana
