Reds’s resistance broken in the 2nd half

Laferla White Hart     0 – 6     Lightshop Hotsticks

Hotsticks dominated this game from start to finish but from the 4th minute onwards did not manage to take advantage of six penalty corner awards.   To give White Hart their due, they defended solidly and the half time whistle blew with the score deadlocked at 0 – 0.

The second half developed into a different scenario altogether    On 38 minutes Jonathan Borg pushed home from a penalty corner action .   Christian Sammut netted on 45 minutes to send his team into a 2 – 0lead.

Borg scored his second and Hotsticks’ third on 51 minutes and three minutes later he notched his hat trick and his team’s fourth.  It must be mentioned that he has hit a rich vein of form scoring freely during his team’s last two outings.   On 68 minutes Steve Cachia added a  fifth goal  to the tally and just before the final whistle Julian Zahra scored giving Hotsticks a merited 6 – 0 victory.
