In the FXDD First Division Naxxar continued their good form after having the better of Kalkara 8-1. This victory helped the Lions to maintain their promotion hopes alive.

Naxxar had their brighter moments in the match and outclassed Kalkara who tried to make a reaction. Even though they restored parity, Kalkara found a good Naxxar rearguard who never lost concentration to grab the three important points.

Their goals were scored from a hat-trick by Adrian Fenech, a brace from Bernard Sciberras and a goal for Khail Drago, Andrew Catania and Lydon Baldacchino.
