Wednesday, 12 August 2020, 07:28 Last update: about 2 months ago

Sliema suffered more than expected to have the better of Sirens, and needed to wait until 19 seconds from the end to open up a two-goal lead that ensured them of victory.

Jacob Sciberras scored against his former club to end the game with a 5-3 score.

The match was tight right from the start, with Suirens defending bravely and always keeping in touch with their opponents.

But Sliema's experience came in handy in the latter stages of the match for them to secure victory.
