In the first quarter final of the 2009/2010edition of the U*BET FA Trophy scheduled for today, Hamrun Spartans managed to qualify for the semi final of this competition after beating Sliema Wanderers 5-2. Hamrun Spartans had a flying start going 2-0 up  after only 5 minutes with goals from Marcelo Pereira and Gaetan Spiteri respectively. A stunned Sliema side managed to get a goal in the 18th minute from a fine strike on a direct free kick by Pedro Do Santos Calcado. The blues kept on pressing with various shot attempts saved by Casha.

Hamrun's Marcelo Pereira

Hamrun Spartans restored their two goal lead with a strike from central defender Roderick Fenech. After Hamrun’s third goal, referee Clayton Pisani gave marching orders to Ian Zammit and Pedro Do Santos Calcado after these were involved in a incident which saw Calcado tackling Zammit harshly and the latter retaliating. Both players where shown the red card.

With both teams reduced to ten men, Hamrun had another great opportunity with Brazilian striker Pereira who shot wide from just outside the Sliema box. The first half finished 3-1 for the Spartans

In the second half, Sliema started slightly better but the tie was over in the 60 minute, when Obinna Ebefula scores with a fine shot from just outside the penalty area.

Obinna Ebefula then scored again from a penalty after he was fouled by Josef Mifsud inside the penalty area. Sliema managed to reduce the score with an Ivan Woods tap in from close range after Mifsud Triganza’s shot was partially saved by Ivan Casha.
