From the papers:San Ġiljan shrug off Youths’ challenge

San Ġiljan 13
ASA U-18 9
(2-4, 5-1, 2-2, 4-2)

San Ġiljan Giuseppe’s were a few notches above what the ASA Youth team could produce in the second and last sessions of yesterday’s non-competitive match.

In fact, they won the quarters fairly comfortably to turn the match in their favour after the U-18s had taken a 4-2 first-session lead, with the third ending all square.

Top scorer for the Saints was ex-Neptunes player Matthew Pisani with five goals. For the ASA team, Diego Borg scored a hat-trick.

SAN ĠILJAN: D. Camilleri, J.C. Cutajar, A. Galea 1, J. Galea 1, R. Mock 2, A. Bugeja, B. Plumpton, C. Gialanze 1, P. Fava 2, C. Martin 1, M. Pisani 5.

ASA U-18: Z. Sciberras, M. Paris, S. Galea 2, M. Mifsud, E. Meli, K. Dowling 1, M. Fenech, K. Debattista, N. Portelli 2, D. Borg 3, A. Mifsud, D. Zammit 1, N. Bugelli.
