San Giljan Allcare     11     Sirens Ritter Sport     12

(3-3, 3-4, 1-1, 4-4)

San Giljan had to bow to in-from Sirens, who followed up their strong performances aginst Sliema and Neptunes. The Saints only led in the opening session, but then had to chase for the remainder of the match. Two Kai Dowling strikes took San Giljan to level terms. Late in the game, but a risky ploy in the final seconds failed for the Saints, when they were on defence, when Dino Zammit swam forward. This left Andrea Sammut all alone, and he gladly swept the ball in the net, to give Sirens all three points. San Giljan had Karl Galea back in the side, and Sirens were under Bogdan Rath once more, after his suspension. Man of the match was Sirens’ Christian Presciutti, with a double hat trick, and Alex Radovic netted four times for the Saints.
