Exiles Elia Caterers 9 San Giljan 13

Partial scores (0-3) (2-4) (2-5) (5-1)

San Giljan found no difficulty in disposing of an erratic Exiles side shorn of ideas when last night they met in their first match of the second round in the domestic Premier Waterpolo League. Exiles failed to give the expected challenge to the current leaders. Their attacks were stereo-typed with Boban Nikic sandwiched between two opponents. The few times Boban got himself free or when the double-man was broken, the final shot found an alerted San Giljan keeper Jake Tanti in good form to deny Exiles’ efforts. The match was over by the end of the third quarter (12-4) when San Giljan coach Marco Orlov gave the youngsters on the bench precious minutes to add to their experience. Exiles won the last session comfortably (5-1) to make the final score more respectable.

Coach Marco Cuk made use of all the players bar young Max Martin the second goalkeeper on the list: Matthew Castillo, Mark Fenech (1 goal), Andrea Bianchi (2 goals), Michele Stellini, Timmy Sullivan, Sean Xerri de Caro, Slobodan Nikic (1 goal), Kurt Griscti, Nicky Paris (1 goal), Aurelien Cousin (1 goal), Beni Lanzon (2 goals), and Philip Paris (1 goal).

Next Friday, Exiles take Sirens in what may be defined as a six-pointer to decide the fourth and fifth slot in the League table. The Northerners also ended empty-handed in last night’s clash with Sliema (6-12).

Match starts at 19.30 and will be played at the National Swimming Pool Complex
