Attard too strong for Mgarr

Attard managed to turn the tide after being a goal down early in the first period. They applied the early pressure as they mounted three actions.

After a flag kick by Lydon Cuschieri, Isaac Bray drove slightly out from inside the area. From another flag kick by Cuschieri  the ball was partly cleared otside the area and Bray missed the upright from the rebound and Cuschieri served Daniel Cassar with a cross from the left and Mgarr keeper Christian Camilleri saved his shot from outside the area.

In the first action by Mgarr in the 10th minute they opened the score as Owen Fenech served John Attard with a through ball on the edge of the area and he lobbed the ball over the onrushing Attard keeper Owen Farrugia and into the net.

This early set-back served as a booster for Attard as they resumed with their pressing. Cuschieri was fouled outside the area and Camilleri saved the free kick shot by Bray in two attempts. Ayrton Caruana released Jeremy Busuttil in the area and he missed the upright by inches and after Caruana served Cuschieri with a through ball he was fouled outside the area and Camilleri saved in two attempts the free kick shot by the same player.

In the 29th minute Mgarr were denied by the woodwork. Attard keeper Owen Farrugia handled the ball in the area from a back-pass, Keith Camilleri served Alan Galea with a short pass from the free kick in the area and the ball thumped the bar from his hard drive with Farrugia beaten and the ball was cleared away.

In the 31st minute Attard equalized as Bray served Cuschieri with a through ball in the area who netted with a low shot with ball passing between Camilleri’s legs and rolled into the net, and four minutes later Attard scored a second goal as Caruana set Cuschieri through awho entered the area after beating a defender and scored with a hard diagonal drive.

In the first minute of added time it was Attard’s turn to be denied by the wood work when Cuschieri entered the area after beating an opponent on the right flank and the ball thumped the bar from his hard rising shot and the ball was cleared away.

Attard created the first action after the resumption as Bray released Caruana in the area and he drove slightly over the bar.

In the 42nd minute Attard scored a third goal when Caruana released Cuschieri in the area and as Camilleri came out of his charge and failed to neutralize the ball and Cuschieri  made the most of this blunder by placing the ball in the top right hand corner of the net.

Two more actions were then created by Attard. Bray released Jake Zahara in the area and after Camilleri partly saved his shot he also saved the rebound shot by the same player and Daniel Cassar served Cuschieri with a through ball in the area and Camilleri foiled him with a timely sortie.

The score became 4-1 in the 53rd minute. Daniel Cassar served  Emmenuel Jarsu, who had just entered as a substitute, with a square pass outside the area and he scored with a hard rising shot from 40 metres.

In an action by Mgarr Keith Camilleri released John Attard on the right flank and Farrugia neutralized the ball from his cross-shot.

The fifth goal by Attard was scored in the 58th minute when Cuschieri entered the area after dribbling his way past two defenders and scored with a diagonal low drive.

Attard kept trying and created two more actions before the end. Daniel Cassar was fouled on the left flank and Cuschieri drove slightly out from the free kick and Jarsu dribbled past an opponent on the left flank who the crossed the ball in the area to substitute Kyle Mercieca and the ball hit the upright from his shot with Camilleri beaten.
