GAME OF THE WEEK
BOTTOM TEAMS IN ALL DIVISIONS WIN
DIVISION 1 – Leaders Kalkara St Joseph whitewashed BBugia Cox Sports Club A 8-0 which ensured they end the year as sole leaders in division one, 3 points ahead of Floriana Ajax A which also found no problem in claiming all 3 points this week with a 7-1 victory against Zejtun Juventutis Domus. In the other two matches from this division, Mosta Horseshoe Bar A defeated Zejtun Beland Bullseye 6-2 and the surprise of the night which saw Bormla Bocci Club claim their first win of the season with a 5-3 win against Gudja POs Bar A which moved them off the bottom of the table. C.Fenech/V.Pace won the crucial final match for Bormla Bocci in the doubles match.
DIVISION 2 – As the early season prediction suggested this is by far the most competitive division this season in which we will end the year with only 5 points separating the top five teams. Leaders Bugibba Munchies Pub end the year of a high note as they came back from 2-3 deficit to defeat Cospicua Rangers 5-3; Hamrun Education Bar A re-claimed second place in the division with a 6-2 away win against Gudja POs Bar B and a very entertaining match ending all square between Senglea Manchester Conquest and Floriana Ajax B. The last match from this division saw bottom team BBugia Cox Sports Club B claiming the first points of the season with a 8-0 win against Mosta Bocci Club.
DIVISION 3 – Top two teams Mosta Horseshoe Bar B and Bugibba Intercontinental Sun City remain unbeaten as they both claimed all 3 points this week with wins coming against St Pauls Diamonds and St Venera Red Square respectively but the mention of the week has to go to Mgarr The Hatch Sports Bar a new team registered in the national leagues which also claimed their first ever win. A 5-3 victory against Mqabba St Mary BC with the wins coming from Karl Vella, Ian Goodman, Steve Alderson, Godwin Calleja in the singles and K.Vella/S.Alderson in the doubles.
