San Gwann are leading the FXDD Futsal First Division League by three solitary points over Qormi with one game in hand. Qormi having played one game less than San Gwann and are well poised to join the leaders if they manage to snatch full points from their next game against Zurrieq, next week. St. Patrick’s are following closely just a point behind second placed Qormi. The promotion challenge thus remains wide open with all three teams clearly determined to compete in top Futsal Premier League next season.
St. Patrick’s have so far only lost one game, against direct rivals San Gwann, but also lost precious points in draws against Mosta and Luqa St. Andrews. On the other hand San Gwann have lost against Melita and Luqa St. Andrews. Qormi dropped six points against title hopefuls St. Patrick’s and San Gwann. Qormi also possess the best goal average from the leading trio.
Futsal National Team and San Gwann’s player, Dylan Musu currently occupies the top scorer position jointly with Marsa’s Ben Halim Salim Anis, with 15 goals, followed closely by Shawn Vella also playing for San Gwann with 13 goals and St. Patricks Radoslav Kovachev with 10 goals.
Melita and Luqa St. Andrews are placed in mid table positions, with the latter offering stern resistance to the leading trio and even snatching points from San Gwann and St. Patrick’s.
In the lower part of the table, Zurrieq, Mosta, Marsa are struggling to keep an edge over Xghajra Tornadoes in relegation zone, with Gharghur in last position with only three points from eleven games, clearly doomed to play in second division next season.
