MFAThe Control and Disciplinary Board of the Malta Football Association awarded Attard a 3-0 win over Luqa St. Andrew’s in the BOV Third Division League match which was played on March 1st but which was abandoned on the 80th minute.

Referee Anthony Buhagiar abandoned the game after Luqa players, identified as Gordon Failla, Craig Marney and Jason Good, intentionally kicked balls out of the pitch into the field adjacent to the Charles Abela Stadium. Since no more balls were available, the referee had to abandon the game with the score still 1-1.

Luqa had earlier three players sent off on the 65th minute.

The BOV Third Division table now reads as follows: Sirens lead the way with 54 points, followed by Swieqi on 47, Ghaxaq and Attard 38, Xghajra 37, Mgarr and Santa Lucia 31, Mtarfa 28, Luqa 25, Sta. Venera 23, Qrendi 20, Ta’ Xbiex 13, Kalkara 3 and Marsaxlokk 2.
