Reds find it hard against reigning champions

Laferla White Hart     1 – 6     Qormi

In the third minute Qormi were awarded a penalty corner and Juan Sarcia scored with a scorcher to send Qormi into a 1 – 0 lead.     On 12 minutes Sarcia netted his and his side’s second.  On 18 minutes Kyle Micallef entered the D  from the left flank and let fly a beauty to send his team 3-0 up.   Qormi were dominating the game at their own pace and further increased their lead when on 22 minutes Sarcia grabbed his hat trick and Qormi’s fourth, the score remaining unchanged as the half time whistle blew.

White Hart seemed a more determined outfit in the second half and, after not availing themselves of a penalty corner opportunity on 39 minutes, they were awarded a penalty stroke a minute later and Luke Brincat reduced the arrears to 4 – 1.   Qormi still controlled the match but were more relaxed in their approach and on 53 minutes John Williams snapped up a rebound off the White Hart gioalkeeper’s pads and netted Qormi’s fifth from close range.  On 65 minutes  Zachary Degiovanni  gave his team a 6 – 1 lead keeping Qormi well in the hunt for the league title.
