Final Score: Tarxien 1 Mosta 0

Tarxien welcomed back Noel Coleiro with a win as their coach decided to revert his decision to quit the team earlier this week.

It was a well balanced match with Mosta having many goal scoring opportunities but never managed to materialize them accordingly.

Tarxien went ahead half way in the first half thanks to a Ricardo Costa goal and kept the advantage all the way till the end.

It would have been a much fair result should the game had ended in a draw since Oliver Spiteri’s team created a handful of scoring opportunities. 

First Half:

19min. Magro’s assist sees Maki fouled inside the penalty box but referee close and no penalty for Mosta.

22min. Tarxien go one up as Ricardo Costa paves his way past the Mosta defence and net the ball behind keeper Debono.

35min. Ian Zammit’s attempt is too an easy call for Tarxien’s keeper Cassar.

37min. Martinelli clears off teh line a Tarxien close attempt from a corner.

Second Half:

46min. Vella Critien clears off the goal line a Da Silva shot

75min. Mosta close to level matters as from a Bogdanovic pass Da Silva saw keeper Cassar saving his two consecutive attempts.
