University of Malta clinch E & L Futsal Trophy

University of Malta finished their commitments on a high as they won the E & L Futsal Trophy after defeating champions Luxol 3-2 in a highly electrifying encounter.

This was the Universitarians’ third success in this cup and the third win against the same opponents in this competition.

University of Malta surged ahead in the first half through Andre Cachia whose run left the Luxol opponents stunned and with a fierce shot beat keeper Ryan Marmara.

In the second half, Luxol were unlucky not to restore parity as they hit the post twice. The Students were luckier as in the subsequent action, they doubled the score as Andre Cachia found the back of the net.

Luxol kept their composure and immediately managed to level the score first through Jhon Castro Pulido and then, courtesy of Emil Raducu.

As Luxol committed the sixth foul, University of Malta were given the shot from the second penalty mark which was scored by Gia Nikvashvili.

Luxol tried hard to get into the match as Andy Mangion was deployed as the flying keeper but the Universitarians absorbed their continuous attacks to retain the trophy they won last year.

At the end of the contest, FMA president Mark Borg presented the E & L Futsal Trophy to University of Malta’s captain Dylan Cacciatolo.
