SLIEMA FRANK SALT………….7
(3-2), (4-0), (2-2), (3-3)
San Ġiljan Tum Invest capped off a perfect season winning also the BOV knock-out defeating Sliema Frank Salt 12-7. It was a resounding win for the champions who finished the season by winning all their 25 games, winning all competitions, and cementing their place as one of the best ever teams.
Sliema were only in the game during the first period as they took the lead from Jerome Gabarretta, and after Aleksandar Ivovic put San Ġiljan in front with two well-taken goals, Guillermo Molina equalised from penalty. But Aurelien Cousin finished a wonderful action to give his team a one-goal advantage at the end of the first session.
That advantage was consolidated in the second session, as like in the previous games, San Ġiljan dominated the second period, scoring four consecutive goals from four different players to finish the session 7-2 in front.
San Ġiljan were already in the driving seat and their job was only to control the game. They scored twice from Aleksandar Ivovic and Andreas Galea but Sliema managed to react in both occasions, to at least limit the damage.
The champions elevated their level again in the last session, scoring three times from Aurelien Cousin, Ben Plumpton and Aleksandar Ivovic to make the score 12-4. Sliema scored three late goals to make the score more respectable.
San Ġiljan captain Matthew Zammit received the trophy from the BOV Chief Officer Anthony Scicluna in the presence of the ASA President Joe Caruana Curran, as San Ġiljan celebrated yet another trophy. Read More…

San Ġiljan retained the winter title, their third in this competition, when yesterday they beat Sliema 8-6 in a very tight contest which was resolved in the last session.In those latter stages of the match, the Saints rediscovered their bearing to keep their fighting opponents at bay. The Blues had fought gallantly to twice recover from early two-goal deficits in a hard-fought duel which had 17 expulsions, the Saints netting once from ten man-ups and Sliema doing likewise from seven similar occasions. There was little in it even if San Ġiljan had a better start when leading 3-1 and 4-2 in the opening two quarters. Sliema fought back to draw level at 4-4 in the third session and 5-5 midway through the final quarter. Read More…
