Exiles Elia Caterers 9 Neptunes 8

Partial scores (3-0) (1-3) (2-2) (3-3)

Igor Vukanovic must be satisfied tonight after his team beat Neptunes earlier this evening to win a tight match played at the National Pool by an odd goal. Exiles were always in control of the encounter whilst the Reds were made to chase their opponents.

After building a four-goal lead (4-0) Neptunes narrowed the gap to end one down (3-4) at the half-way mark. Exiles extended their lead lead in the third session to three goals (6-3) by the end of the quarter and widened the gap to four (8-4) in the final session before a comeback by Neptunes narrowed the gap in dying minutes to a mere goal but Exiles survived the last efforts of the Reds to hang on to a precious win as the time ticked towards the final horn.

A concentrated defence and quick-thinking in the attack helped Exiles edge Neptunes who were shorn of three international players Jeremy Abela and Stevie Camilleri currently playing abroad and Jordan Camilleri who is nursing an injury.

Neptunes converted one of the six man-ups apart from a penalty awarded which was converted. Exiles scored four of their ten man-ups and missed one of two penalties awarded.

Exiles made use of the following players, Matthew Castillo, Jake Bajada (1 goal), Andrew Magri, Philip Paris (1 goal), Timmy Sullivan (1 goal), Sean Xerri de Caro (1 goal), Mark Fenech (3 goals), Kurt Griscti, Nicky Paris (1 goal), Aurelien Cousin (1 goal) and Simon Apap.

Next match scheduled for Sunday 23rd February 2020 at 12.00 hours when Exiles take on San Giljan who easily beat Marsascala 14-1 in match day 1.
