Extra-time goals hand Mosta promotion

Mosta secured a place in the Premier League next season after defeating Melita 2-0 after extra-time in a promotion decider at the Victor Tedesco Stadium on Friday.

The game turned out to be an entertaining clash although no goals were scored by the end of the ninety minutes. Six minutes in extra-time, Mosta managed to break the deadlock through Victor Osobu. Four minutes later, Simon Shead doubled the score.

The Blues had Nikola Bogdanovic sent off but still managed to control their opponents in the remaining minutes to secure victory and a return to the Premier League after an absence of five years.

The decider was necessary as they ended their commitments in the BOV First Division League table on level points, behind champions Balzan Youths and runners-up Mqabba.
