Second-half goals hand Sirens first win

Sirens registered their first win as they came from behind to beat Gudja United 2-1 at the Centenary Stadium on Saturday.

Thanks to these three points, Steve D’Amato’s side joins Gudja and Santa Lucia on the 6-point mark and therefore the three teams now share the bottom place but Santa Lucia have a game in hand.

Gudja could have taken the lead on the 18th minute when they were awarded a penalty after Abou Toure was brought down inside the area but from the penalty spot, Toure’s effort was neutralised by goalkeeper Andrea Cassar.

Abou Toure, however, managed to put Gudja ahead nine minutes later as he headed the ball home from close range when served by Gabriel Mensah.

Eight minutes in the second half, Sirens restored equilibrium when following a good run, Kemmu Degran Jackson served substitute Daniel Agius who slotted the ball past goalkeeper Yaren Sozer.

The St. Paul’s Bay side notched the winner on the 68th minute when Sacha Borg was brought down inside the area and from the penalty spot, Kwasi Donsu converted.
