Laferla White Hart 2 – 0 Rabat Depiro
The bottom two teams of the league paired up to try and get some more points on the table. Rabat had unfortunately a rather depleted side and were on the ropes from the start. They were the first team to get a penalty corner however but White Hart were up to the challenge and thwarted Rabat’s effort. Laferla WH pressed on and got their reward on the 5th minute when from a penalty corner Alvaro Garcia tapped in from 3 metres after Kenneth Debatista failed to clear Sammut’s effort. The game ebbed and flowed with White Hart keeping their terrotorial advantage without really troubling the Rabat defence but Rabat did not create any problems for Laferla White Hart.
The 2nd half had much of the same. Laferla were rather wasteful in midfield, giving the ball away too easily and gave Rabat an opportunity form their counterattacks. However, Vassallo Agius in goal was up to it and saved a couple of times from Kevin Micallef and Charlot Antonelli. For the first time this season, White Hart managed to keep a clean sheet and got the win they needed, when Glen Bonello finished off a slick move on the left with two minutes to go to finish 2-0 up.
