Jival registered another good win , the second from three games in the MSVLIFE MASTERS LEAGUE when they beat Tal-Qroqq 9-3 and for the first time since they started taking part in the Masters League they occupy the first place in the standing.  They got two good foreigners that they are making all the difference, Abugella Wahashi who is the top scorer at the moment and new player Dejan Petkovic who impressed with his performance.  It was a game full of tension and Tal-Qroqq had to play the last 40 minutes with five players when Jesmond  Bartolo was sent out for passing remarks to the referee. It was the second consecutive game that Tal-Qroqq had a player sent out, which is unfortunate wih the team finding difficulty to cope. Jival were leading 3-1 at half time, and they went on to win comfortable   9-2 when they dominated their opponents.

Dingli Desana gave an excellent performance as champion. They dominated the second half to register their second win 10-5.  The game was played in a fast pace from one end to the other.  Dingli however, were too efficient, showing good moves with Jeffrey Gauci who scored four and William Borg showing class scoring six goals between them. At the end of the first half Marsa were leading 3-1 and it seemed that Desana were going to suffer.  In the second period, Dingli scored six consecutive goals  to lead 7-3. Here Marsa lost  all hope and although they tried hard, Dingli still managed to keep the initiative. They continued to score and win handsomely 10-5.   Jeffrey Gauci scored four, whilst William Borg managed  to get two goals..

Mosta Shaggy Pub also had a good performance with Ricorico Tarik always dangerous an always dangerous with his play and experience. They went for the break 5-1 in the lead, and now Mosta opened their goals and started regularly scoring regularly.   They were more direct and managed to dominate all out in the second half and win easily 12-2.  However, one must admire the Zurrieq players, when   their age group is higher and are facing much younger opponents. However, Zurrieq  kept on trying up to the end. They are good sportsmen and showing respect to all teams and officials.
