Missing no less than twelve players and with not substitutes, Hotsticks played a roller-coaster match with sheer determination even after going three goals down in the first half. Before the break, Dalli reduced the margin from a penalty-corner. In the second half the Sliema side had the better of the game, scored again through Rasterhoff and could have signed a remarkable comeback. At the end, however, this did not materialize due to lack of precision and technical limitations.
