Local top guns Sliema McDonalds and Neptunes Emirates will be meeting again for a third time this evening in the decisive match to determine this year’s Winter League.
In the first match on Friday, Sliema had taken a 1-0 lead, winning the encounter convincingly 13-5, but Neptunes hit back strongly to win the second match and level matters with an equally convincing performance which led them to a 12-6 victory over their rivals.
Sliema will have Michael Rizzo missing through suspension. He has been banned for one whole week, with effect from 6 May, after the incidents during last Friday’s first match.
A large crowd is expected to attend this evening’s match which starts at 6.45pm.
