Sliema-San Giljan:From the Papers

Sliema 9
San Ġiljan 6
(1-1, 2-2, 3-2, 3-1)

Not Unexpectedly, The Winter League Got Off To A Typical Start Weatherwise As Sliema Mcdonald’S And San Ġiljan Sir Alex Crossed Swords Yesterday Evening With The Blues Emerging Winners By A Three-Goal Margin.
The Cold Outside Temperature And Windy Conditions Were Far From Ideal For Both Sets Of Players And Supporters. The Fare Provided Was In Line With What One Expects At This Time Of The Year With Offensive Moves Being Predictable And Swimming Speed Not Yet Reaching Ideal Levels.
It Was Generally Balanced With The Scoreline Remaining Even Until Midway Through The Third Session, After Which Sliema Took A Two-Goal Advantage That Was Eventually Extended To Three Thanks To Their Superior Sharpness When Within Striking Distance.
All In All, San Ġiljan Fared Adequately Given The Absence Of Their Chief Scorer Matthew Zammit.
