Laferla White Hart 2 – 1 Floriana Young Stars
Early Young Stars’ pressure did not produce dividends and on 13 minutes White Hart were awarded a penalty stroke which Luke Brincat buried stroking a low shot into the corner of the net from the spot. Both teams increased their efforts but it was White Hart who went further ahead when David Agius met a Glen Bonello cross close to the by- line and flicked home from a very narrow angle. Young Stars reacted and after not taking advantage of five penalty corner awards they pulled one back when Jamie Mifsud scored seconds before the half time whistle blew.
The second half proved to be interesting as gaps started opening with both teams creating chances as the game flowed from end to end . Both defences stood firm and tempers frayed as the clock ran down and the two sides were reduced to ten men. Although Young Stars increased their resolve and pressed hard for an equalizer, White Hart stood firm and ran out 2 -1 winners to give them their second victory this season.
