In what initially seemed to be a tight match, Exiles and Marsascala faced off to determine who would be the team to take the fifth position in the First Division Championship. Marsascala started well and managed to shade the first session 4-3 largely through the Koralji brothers’ goals. Exiles replied through the Rizzo Naudi brothers and in the second session a 1-1 draw saw Marsascala retain their slender one goal advantage.

However Exiles ran riot in the third sessions, smashing no less than nine goals without reply with Cuk and Karl Rizzo Naudi leading the charge. The final session was another one sided affair with Exiles winning 5-2 for a final score of 18-7 and confirmation of 5th place in the First Division standings.

Sirens Ritter Sport and San Giljan Giuseppe’s fought out a fine match with the result hanging in the balance throughout practically all four sessions. San Giljan raced to a 3-0 lead in the first session only to be pegged back to 4-3. The second session ended in perfect parity 2-2 so the game went into the third session balanced on a knife edge.

The third session continued finely balanced with both teams trading the lead but it was San Giljan who took a one goal lead into the final session. In the final session, San Giljan registered a fine 5-2 advantage largely through the efforst of their talisman Sutic to easily win the encounter.
