Balzan Youths win Hibs Tournament

Balzan Youths won the Hibernians Sigma Tournament despite being held in a draw by Marsaxlokk on Monday as Hibernians lost to Qormi in the other game.

Balzan and Marsaxlokk shared the spoils in a 1-1 draw. Kwam Adjeman Pamboe put Marsaxlokk ahead on 32 minutes but Pedro Dos Santos Calcado levelled matters for the Youths on 65 minutes.

Hibernians, therefore needed a win from the last game. However Qormi had other thoughts. Shola Shodija put them ahead on 14 minutes and although Edison Luis Dos Santos equalised on 33 minutes, eight minutes in the second half, Shola Shodija notched the winner for Stephen Azzopardi’s side.

Balzan therefore ended their commitments on five points, followed by Hibernians and Qormi on four and Marsaxlokk on two. Qormi won the Fair Play Trophy.

After the game, Ivan Busuttil from Sigma Coatings presented the trophy to Balzan captain Rennie Forace.
