Round two of the league started with the derby against Hotspurs again. The match was played at Kercem ground and the first half was a tight game without too many chances for either side.

The second half was a different story however as the blue side of Victoria took control and created a number of good chances. Firstly a strong shot from distance from Oliver Farrugia hit the underside of the bar and came out to Lauran Dimech. Unfortunately his shot on the rebound was directly at the goalkeeper. Next it was Joel Xuereb's turn to hit the woodwork with a low drive.

With ten minutes remaining it seemed the game would head toward a draw. However, following a poor corner routine by our boys, Hotspurs broke and counter-attacked with pace. They applied pressure and found a goal. The problems for our team were compounded when Luciano received a second yellow card and was sent off. In injury time Hotspurs added a second to avenge their defeat from the first round.

Our team is on a bad run and we need your support. The next game is in two weeks time against Kercem and we hope to see you there.
