Valletta sweep Sirens aside to start positively

Valletta recorded a mammoth 11-0 victory over Sirens to ensure themselves of a strong start in the Gatorade Futsal League. 

The Citizens, who had prolific scorer Mohammed Elamari missing, opted for Matthew Mifsud as their goalkeeper.

Sirens, on their first official outing of the season,  paraded some new faces in their squad with the likes of Spanish goalie Alejandro Garcia Melero, Sam Vella, Vaughan Barnes and Khail Drago.

True to expectations, Valletta were in a class of their own as the Lilywhites’ attack had a very fruitful outing.

Valletta’s dominance produced a catalogue of chances and goals through braces by Denis di Maio, Daniel Brincat, Dylan Musu and Liam Cachia while Cristian Cuadros Silva, Jurgen Pace and Melvin Borg completed the rout for the Citizens.

Mdina Knights, on their second participation in the league, kicked off their commitments with a sound 5-0 victory over Gozo FC.

The Gozitans were totally outclassed by their more-quoted opponents who went in for the break leading 2-0 following a Leo Muscat double.

Robert Peplow scored the third goal while Roberto Sarcia and Tyrone Grech added more goals for the Knights.
