San Gwann claimed three precious points in the battle against relegation as they defeated Zejtun Corinthians 3-1 in one of the two matches from the BOV First Division at the Victor Tedesco Stadium on Monday.
Ryan Spiteri put Zejtun ahead on the 15th minute but a brace by Renan Oliveira early in the second half – on the 46th and the 52nd – turned the score in San Gwann’s favour with Jan Tanti sealing the issue with a goal eleven minutes from time.
In another match, a penalty by Jean Pierre Mifsud Triganza on the 62nd minute and a goal by Yanis Tonna on the 79th handed Pembroke Athleta a 2-0 win over Lija Athletic. A win which puts Pembroke in joint-fifth place.
