Vittoriosa Stars take sole leadership in Division 1

Vittoriosa Stars took sole leadership in the BOV First Division after beating Mqabba 3-1 on Saturday.

This was the eighth goal for Chitescu, who lies in the second place in the scorers’ list behind Balzan’s Simon Shead who leads the way with 12 goals.

In another match, Mosta defeated San Gwann 1-0.
