Considering the form of the previous games, there was one favourite heading into this game. San Ġiljan maintained the prediction but had to work harder than expected to beat a resilient Sirens side 10-6. Paulo Obradovic and Nicolas Bicari carried their respective teams, and both had a tough battle.
Sirens had their best game so far but still finished the match empty handed and are still alongside Valletta at the bottom of the table with no points. They could have done better in the man-up situations scoring twice from six occasions.
Marco Baldinetti’s team started well as Canadian Nicolas Bicari scored twice while Paulo Obradovic responded for San Ġiljan. The champions recovered in the second session with three goals in the space of a minute and ten seconds from a brace by the hard worker Andreas Galea and Paulo Obradovic. Read More…
