G"ira rescue point at the death

Chimezie 85
Jorginho 90
Leaders G"ira United could not overcome the challenge of Pieta Hotspurs challenge as the latter held the Maroons 1-1 in a nerve-wrecking contest at the Tedesco Stadium, on Saturday.
Right from the start, it was clear that Pieta' Hotspurs were not going to defend deep and wait to catch their opponents on the break, as they held their defensive line very high and they also came close to draw first blood in the early stages of the game but Neil Pace Cock's effort sailed over the bar.
G"ira United replied with a long-range shot by Zach Scerri in the 11th minute but goalkeeper Nicky Vella was alert to avert the danger.
However, the Hotspurs threatened again, this time from Paul Chimezie, who after receiving a through ball from Gabriel Mensah, darted into the box but could not slot the ball past the oncoming Anthony Curmi.
On the brink of half-time, Garba connected with a corner-kick but his header went inches wide.?
Within 15 minutes of the restart, G"ira came close through the usual Samb but in front of goal, he shot straight into Vella's hands.
Darren Abdilla's clan were growing in confidence but could make their pressure count.
