BOV Division 2: Gudja close in on Swieqi as leaders suffer shock defeat

Gudja United moved second in the BOV Second Division, three points behind leaders Swieqi United as the latter suffered a shock defeat to St. George’s.

At the Luxol Stadium, a goal by Wisdom Ifeanyi two minutes from time gave St. George’s a most surprising win over Swieqi United.

On the other hand, a goal by Nicholas Zammit just before half-time enabled Gudja United to beat Siggiewi 1-0 in another match at the Luxol Stadium. Gudja, in fact, leapfrogged Santa Lucia who were held in a 1-1 draw by Marsaxlokk at the Centenary Stadium. John Nwoba put Santa Lucia ahead on the 21st minute but Pablo Doffo levelled matters on the 73rd.

In another match, an early goal by Leon Zammit gave Mgarr United a narrow win over Gharghur.

Swieqi lead the way with 39 points, followed by Gudja on 36, Santa Lucia 35, Fgura and Marsaxlokk 33, Kalkara 32, Siggiewi 31, Birzebbuga 29, Mgarr 28, Luqa 15, Attard 13, St. George’s 12 and Gharghur 3.
