Gudja United 1 - 0 Pembroke Athleta

A narrow win at Pembroke's expense was enough for Gudja United to keep the pace with League leaders Sirens and St. Lucia respectively.

As we frequently witnesed, Gudja took control of the match with continuous possession of the ball whilst Pembroke responded with counter attacks.

During the first half there were some enjoyable moments from both sides but neither team was able to pose serious threat to it's opponent.

In the second half, Gudja took the lead after just a few minutes when substitute Leejoe Schembri, who had just come on to replace Luke Micallef, crossed from the right side, Llywelyn Cremona chest it down to FIRAS ABOULEZZ who fired one home.

Gudja continued to control the match until the 60th minute. From now on, it was only Pembroke who besieged the Gudja area with attack after attack, hitting the post twice and also being denied to score with a fine clearance by Jonathan Bondin just before crossing the goaline.
