At the end of the ninety minutes, the score was 1-1. An eventful and entertaining match was evenly contested by the two sides. Michael Ciappara put Swieqi ahead five minutes from the end of the first half but Mtarfa drew level just after the break thanks to Darik Mohammed Abdlla. The game proceeded to a straight penalty shoot-out and Swieqi’s 2 missed penalties proved costly as Mtarfa dispatched all four of their penalties to claim the trophy.
