Floriana FC 3 vs 1 St Andrews FC.
Coming from a goal down in the beginning of the first half Floriana registered their second win of the season.
But it wasn’t an easy task for the boys in Green who after six minutes of play were one-nil down , Ivan Paz crossed in the middle from the corner flag in an action that found Godwin McKay who with a header beat Floriana’s goalkeeper to make it one-nil for St Andrews.
But Floriana never gave up and showed character, Nicolas Hernan Chiesa tried his luck and his shot was parried away by goalkeeper Jake Galea. Amadou Samb had a chance but was unlucky as his ball hit the bar, it was saved as well by Jake Galea with the aid of his goalpost. Finally the Greens efforts proved well, it was Mario Fontanella last season’s top scorer who with a firm drive from outside the area made it one each.
The Greens gained momentum as time was passing by and it was time for substitute Steve Pisani to find the net , it was Varela who passed to Steve who with a powerful fierce shot made it two-one for Floriana, Amadou Samb sealed the issue with a picture goal, Amadou advanced in front of goalkeeper Galea, he went into dribbling the St Andrews goalkeeper two times until he slotted the ball from the edge of the six yards box to make it three-one for Floriana.
