The first round matches of the Knock Out Competition were held last week, with Pieta Hotspurs, University of Malta, Marsaskala and Tarxien JMI joining seeded teams Luxol, Valletta, Hamrun and Swieqi.
The opening match which was meant to mark the debut of the two new teams, Pietà Hotspurs and Junior College, ended up in the least expected way since only Pietà Hotspurs turned out for the match, Junior College called a walk over.
Following, the University of Malta and Mriehel ESS offered an entertaining match to those present at the Corradino Sport Pavillion. UoM qualified to the next round thanks to a 6-4 win. A revamped Marsaskala side also made it to the next round thanks to a 5-2 win over Qormi while Tarxien JMI defeated Swieqi U21 8-2.
