In the main match from the third day of the campaign, Ghajnsielem obtained a deserved victory over Munxar Falcons and with the points obtained they not only remain at the top of the table with maximum points but opened a comfortable five point lead over the same Falcons.  Ghajnsielem had an excellent start to the match and practically obtained the victory with two goals scored in the opening twelve minutes of play.  As time passed by Ghajnsielem controlled Munxar’s reaction but the Blacks remained more dangerous than their opponents and the victory could have easily been with a larger margin.

Ghajnsielem took command of play from the early stages and in the second minute of play a header by Charlon Tabone from a cross by Frank Lee Galea ended wide.  In the 7th minute the Blacks opened the score through a half volley by Charlon Tabone following a cross by Robert Grima.  On 12 minutes Ghajnsielem doubled the score when Joseph Attard had his first attempt partially saved by goalie George Vella and from the rebound the same striker concluded easily in goal.  Munxar replied on 21 minutes through an attempt by Ryan Meilak that was blocked by the defense and from the rebound Orlando Atzori’s shot on the run ended wide.  Two Ghajnsielem’s Joseph Attard had a low drive that missed the target and on 32 minutes Munxar’s Patrick Falzon had a free kick that ended away from goal.  Munxar could have reduced the score six minutes later but Orlando Atzori concluded badly from the edge of the area after receiving form Frank Paul Azzopardi.  The same Azzopardi lost another good scoring opportunity in the first minute of stoppage time before half time when he entered the area, passed around the goalkeeper but had his attempt blocked on the goal-line by David Debattista.

Munxar tried to increase their efforts after the break but on 55 minutes Ghajnsielem went closer to scoring when Kenny Hili entered Munxar’s territory following a through pass from the midfield but goalie George Vella had good timing and went out of the area to clear the danger.  As time passed by the Blacks continued to create more danger than their opponents and midway through the second period striker Charlon Tabone on three separate occasions failed to conclude in goal from a good position.  On 80 minutes Munxar threatened Ghajnsielem’s rearguard through a long ranged shot by Patrick Falzon and in the first minute of stoppage time a good attempt from a direct free kick by Michael pace was turned to a corner by goalie Luke Buttigieg so that the score remained unchanged until the final whistle.
