BOV Division 2: Stoppage-time penalty hands Santa Lucia joint-leadership

John Nwoba converted a penalty deep into stoppage time as Santa Lucia rescued a point in a dramatic 1-1 draw with Attard in one of the two BOV Second Division matches at the Luxol Stadium on Saturday.

The game in fact seemed heading for a goalless draw before Kurt Zahra put Attard ahead on the 89th with Nwoba equalising three minutes in added time. This draw puts Santa Lucia on level points with leaders Swieqi United.

In another match, Luqa St. Andrew’s defeated St. George’s 2-0. Jihad Azzagari gave Luqa the lead on the 33rd minute with Radnor Farrugia doubling the score in added time thanks to a penalty.

Swieqi and Santa Lucia lead the way with 24 points, followed by Gudja and Siggiewi on 23, Kalkara 22, Marsaxlokk 18, Fgura, Birzebbuga and Mgarr 17, Luqa 14, Attard 10, St. George’s 5 and Gharghur 2.
