On Saturday 20 March, Williams and Micallef managed to confirm mathematically the win of the National Under 15 title to Qormi.
This team dominated the competition and with one match to go has a 4 point lead over the 2nd placed team Sliema.In fact Williams team needed just one point in the last 2 matches. Instead the team dominated the match against 2nd placed Sliema and won comfortably 6-2.
For this match Williams started with Under 13 keeper Aquilina between posts. In Defence he began with Dimech, while in midfield Darmanin, Grixti, Deguara and Gatt formed a 4 player line. Keith Bajada began as a striker.
The Qormi players controlled the match but failed to score in the 1st minutes. However there was no trouble for the Qormi defense that controlled without any particular issues.
A Gatt right cross found Deguara that with a tricky move reversed the ball into goal. This gave impetus to Sliema and managed to score the draw in few minutes. However this was also a wake up call to the Qormi team and just after a few minutes he came in, Under 11 player, Luke Bajada put upfront the Qormi team again till half time.
In the 2nd half Qormi went out stronger and managed to score 4 goals in succetion from Keith Bajada, twice, Karl Gatt and Shawn Dimech. In the last few minutes Sliema pulled one back.
This Saturday Qormi Under 15 will be playing their last match of the season against Floriana. After the match the Under 15s will be celebrating their 8th consecutive title in a row!! Something never happened in the Maltese Hockey. It could be a memorable weekend as the Club after Saturday celebrations will be facing Floriana on Sunday morning,in the Seniors competitions for the National League title.
