Laferla White Hart 1 Qormi Poiatti 5
Qormi drew first blood on 11 minutes when Kyle Micallef shot them ahead as a result of a penalty corner action. White Hart reacted with counter attacks down the flanks , although Qormi enjoyed territorial advantage overall. On 26 minutes White Hart equalised when Charlo Sammut pounced on a loose ball during a melee inside the D and pushed home. Both teams then did not take advantage of penalty corners awarded to them and half time was reached with the score unchanged at 1 – 1.
After Qormi had hit the post on 43 minutes it was Micallef who notched his second two minutes later to send Qormi to a 2 -1 lead. The game remained a balanced affair with both teams missing penalty corner opportunities until Qormi scored two goals in the space of two minutes – the first on 56 minutes when Zachary Degiovanni scored to send his team into a 3 -1 lead and the second three minutes later when Juan Sarcia converted a penalty stroke to extend his team’s lead to 4 – 1. This killed the game as a contest and on 65 minutes John Williams pushed home from close range to register a 5 – 1 victory for his side.
