BOV Challenge League: Edson Farias brace sinks Swieqi United

Naxxar Lions bounced back from the 0-3 defeat to Pembroke Athleta earlier this week as they defeated Swieqi United 2-0 in a match from the BOV Challenge League at the Centenary Stadium on Saturday.

Swieqi United therefore failed to keep the pace with leaders Marsa and second-placed Pembroke Athleta and continue to share the third place with San Gwann.

Edsin Cerqueira Farias scored the goals on the 15th and 25th to lift Naxxar to joint-fifth, four behind Swieqi and San Gwann.
