Luxol showed more great form in the FXDD Premier Division after seeing off Pembroke with a 7-3 scoreline to claim the top spot together with Hibernians.
Now unbeaten in 7 league games, Luxol scored their first goal after 30 seconds to pave the way for their success. On the other hand, Pembroke, fifth in the table, offered a mighty performance with keeper Bernard Camilleri pulling off some wonderful saves to keep his team in the match and operating on swift counter-attacks with Wayne Muscat and Floren Manea being the most dangerous.
Luxol’s goals were scored by Eslam Khalifa, who scored a hat-trick, a brace by William Barbosa and two goals by Ibrahim Tarek and Dean Gera. A brace by Wayne Muscat and a goal by Kenneth Ekezie reduced the arrears for Pembroke.
During this match, youngster Dario Arran Zampa, seventeen years of age, made his official debut with Luxol.
