Luxol managed to win against Hamrun 5-4, in a very close match in which Hamrun lost the equaliser in the final minutes. Luxol’s player and coach Frane Despotovic scored one of the five goals, together with Andy Mangion, Rogerio dos Santos Filho, Celino Alves and Captain Mark Zammit. Luxol had to suffer two players sent off, as Glenn Bonello received the second yellow card and goalkeeper Matthew Xerxen was shown the red card.

Two minutes from the end, while Hamrun set about making their extra man count, Florin Anton’s equaliser was denied by the post. Earlier Luke Stivala had a brace, together with a goal apiece for Aleksander Tomin and Everton da Silva Santos.
