  Rafa scores in stoppage time to secure all three points

Celebrating a great comeback against Zebbug Rangers

Raphael Kooh Sohna's brace was enough for Gudja United to come back from one goal down and get all the three points.

Under the guidance of their newly appointed coach, Zebbug Rangers started well immediately and scored in the opening minutes following a corner situation.

Gudja tried to react but Zebbug were well organized in their defence and with their counter attacks they went close to double their lead on several occasions. But the result remained the same for the first half.

In the second half, Gudja started taking matters into their own hands, and commenced to bombard the Zebbug area. In the 66th minute, Kooh Sohna found himself alone in front of Zebbug goalie but saw his well placed shot being partially stopped by the latter. However luckily enough RAPHAEL KOOH SOHNA fired one home from the rebound and equalized the score.

From now on it was only Gudja United with attack after attack and finally, on the 90+4 minutes, Adolphus Marshall tried his luck with a beautiful bicycle kick. This ended up in Firas Aboulezz's feet who crossed to RAPHAEL KOOH SOHNA who scored and allowed Gudja to take ownership of all the three points.
