At the start of this much anticipated match, Kavallieri winger, Dean, started the score with a successfully converted penalty.  Stompers then replied with a beautiful run by Attard leaving the Kavallieri back line standing still, allowing him to score his first points of the game – a try, followed by a conversion.

Quick to respond, Kavallieri won a penalty with Dean converting again to add another three points to the score board.  Then it was Cutajar’s turn to gain a try for Kavallieri as a lineout was mauled over the line.  Third time ‘unlucky’ for Dean as he failed to convert.

Before half time, however, Stompers took the lead with a try by Fountain following a speedy penalty by Galea. At Half time score was Stompers 12 – Kavallieri 11

Pumped up by their first half performance, Kavallieri’s solid back line passing led to another try by Cutajar.

Stompers responded with a try by Camilleri following a 5m lineout.  Tonna then got his name on the score sheet as wonderful supporting tactics by Stompers allowed for a fast flowing run of play.  On this occasion, both tries were converted by Attard.

Unfortunately, Kavallieri’s Mallia was sin binned following intentional contact with the head of the Stompers fullback.  Parity was quickly restored as Galea (Stompers) received the same treatment after an attempted trip.

More points followed as Kavallieri’s Doublesin took a quick penalty and ran in a try; successfully converted by Dean.

In the dying moments of the match, Kavallieri snatched victory as a number of successive mauls allowed Bonavia to power over the line.  Successfully converting this final try, Dean closed the match as he started.
