Futsal: Luxol, University share top spot

Luxol St Andrews and University of Malta maintained their perfect record in the Enemed Futsal League as they both registered important wins. Valletta Futsal kept the pace with the top two with a fine win over Żurrieq while St Georges claimed their first win in a dramatic win against Marsaskala Futsal.

Luxol notched their fifth win of the season after seeing off Mellieħa 6-1. The latter were a tough nut to crack for the champions although playing against their more quoted opponents. The St Andrews outfit had their captain Mark Zammit scoring a brace while Carl Azzopardi, Nathan Cope, Everton Veve and Marwan Telisi were also on the mark. Mellieħa reduced the arrears through Andrew Abela.

University of Malta defeated Qormi 12-2. Noel Azzopardi scored five goals while Mohammed Elamari and Cleavon Portelli hit the target twice. Andrew Pace, Dylan Mintoff and Stefan Camilleri scored the other goals.

Valletta confirmed their good form of late thanks to an impressive 15-0 win over Żurrieq. Steven Camilleri scored a poker and Aaron Montebello helped himself with a brace. Zvezdan Vukovic, Karl Sciortino, Luke Gatt, Jovica Milijic, Michael Borg, Dylan Pace and three own goals completed the score for the Lilywhites.

Siġġiewi obtained their second win of the season after scoring four goals against Naxxar. Brazilian striker Wallace Olivera scored a brace while Ryan Muscat and Justin Theuma made sure of the most important three points for Siġġiewi.

St Georges broke their duck as they won their first match of the season, defeating Marsaskala 7-4. It was a well-contested encounter between two sides which stood in the lower part of the table. The Cottonera side had Herbert Spiteri who scored a hat-trick while Eslam Khalifa put his name on the score sheet twice. Leon Camilleri and Matthew Scicluna were also on the mark. Marsaskala adopted a never-say-die attitude and scored their goals through Gianluca Lo Giudice and Gildred Gatt’s double.
