Otters Nivea 4 San Giljan Giuseppe’s 15
(0-3), (1-4), (1-6), (2-2)
San Giljan Giuseppe’s had absolutely no problems in overcoming an unusually ineffectual Otters Nivea by the score of 15-4.
In the first two sessions, San Giljan Giuseppe’s ran riot over Otters Nivea with the Saints scoring seven goals without reply until Otters scored in the dying seconds of the second session. San Giljan’s goals came from seven different players while the Gozitan team scored through Martin.
The third session was another one sided affair with San Giljan scoring six times to Otters’ one. Letica, Galea and Pisani all increased their goal tally for the Saints who controlled the session with ease. The final session was perhaps the most balanced ending up 2-2 for a final score of 4-15 in favour of San Giljan.
