On Saturday Qormi Under 17s faced Sliema in their 2nd league match. With both teams winning their 1st encounter, it was important for both teams to take the points from this match and also take the lead in the standings.
Williams had Justine Pace Gasan out due to injury, Luke Bajada and Jacob Galea both unavailable. However the Qormi team was still very strong and dominated the game from the1st minutes. Although dominating the game and playing very attractive hockey the Qormi team had to wait till the 8th minute when Kurt Grixti scored a well combinated action between Borg and Dimech. Few minutes later and Ellul managed to double the score after Zammit shot was saved by the Sliema keeper. Before half time Sliema on a counter attack managed to get one back and the half time result was 2-1 for Qormi.
In the 2nd half Qormi dominated the game from the 1st minutes. It was Borg that scored the 3rd and Grixti the 4th. However the Qormi players would have scored much more goals wasn't it for the Sliema custodian that made several saves. Also as the match went on the Qormi team failed to play as a team and the young players tried more for their personal glory, failing to add to the goal tally.
With this result Qormi are top of the standings. Qormi will face Floriana in 2 weeks time.
