Assikura Women’s League: Raiders maintain perfect start as Birkirkara defeat Hibernians

Birkirkara and Raiders Lija recorded two important victories in this week’s Matchday 4 from the Assikura Women’s League.

The Stripes, who are the reigning champions, saw off old foes Hibernians with two late goals scored by Ann-Marie Said and captain Stephania Farrugia.  For both defenders, this was their first goal of the season as Birkirkara have seven points after three games played.

In the process, Jose Borg’s side have extended their unbeaten run to 72 league games. For Hibernians, this was their second straight defeated after losing to Mġarr United last week.

Another key win was clinched by Raiders who scored a goal in each half to beat Mġarr United.  Denis Guerra’s side is the only team with a perfect record so far after winning all three league fixtures.

Lexine Farrugia was Raiders Lija’s hero with a brace as she now tops the league’s scoring charts with seven goals.

Elsewhere, Swieqi secured their second win of the season after hitting San Ġwann for eight.

Former Venezuela U-20’s player Rafanny Mendoza scored a hat-trick while the other goals were grabbed by Jessica Dimech, Tatiana Dabney, Shona Zammit, Jasmine Turner and Jade Flask.
