Nazzareno Attard won the Blue Line Trap Trophy on Sunday 17 July 2016.

This Event was the penultimate of the four selection shoots for the Fazz’a Italian Cup 2016 Trap to be held from the 25 to the 28 August 2016 in Todi Italy.

The scores of this weekend’s competition were below average due to the near gale force winds that hit the Maltese Islands on Day 1, Saturday, however, on Day 2 the moderate breeze made it much easier for the shooters to compete.

In the qualification rounds, Brian Galea finished on top with 108/125, followed by Matthew Busuttil with a score of 105/125. Paul Formosa, Frank Scorfna, Nazzareno Attard and Pierre Montebello, all made it through to the semi-final stage with the same score of 100/125.

Nazzareno Attard defeated Brian Galea in the Gold Medal Match with 12/15 hits to 11/15 hits. In the semi-final, Galea hit 14/15 targets while Attard smashed 13/15+3 targets.

In the Bronze Medal Match, Paul Formosa finished in third place overall as he beat Frank Scorfna with a score of 10/15 to 9/15. In the semi-final, Formosa hit 13/15+2 while Scorfna managed 12/15.

The two other shooters, who did not make it through to the Medal Matches after the semi-final stage, were Matthew Busuttil and Pierre Montebello, who finished in fifth and sixth place, with the score of 11/15 hits each.

A perfect straight of 25/25 hits was registered by Stephen Vella.
