Luxol St. Andrews secured a place in the final of the FMA National League after defeating rivals Valletta Futsal 6-2 in the league decider at the Corradino Pavillion on Monday.
It was an exceptional performance by the St Andrews outfit that did not concede the initiative to their opponents. This decider was necessary after three teams, included Swieqi United, finished on equal points in the standings.
Gabriel Dobre’s troops had better ideas and established a double advantage courtesy of Maicon da Silva and Everton Veve. Although Felipe Otero reduced the arrears for Valletta, it was Leanderson Sant’Anna Coriolano who scored again for Luxol one second from the interval.
The Brazilian striker went on to score a hat-trick in the second half with Carl Azzopardi adding another one for Luxol. Mohammed Elamari scored the second goal for Valletta to make it the final 6-2 scoreline.
Valletta still have the chance to make it for the final as they face Swieqi United in the league semi-final to be played on Wednesday at 8.45pm at the NSS Pavillion in Pembroke.
