Hibernians FC vs Raiders (Luxol)


The 21st final of the MFA Women's Knock-Out will see champions and holders Hibernians taking on Raiders (Luxol) who ended their season at fourth place, in a repeat final of last season, when the Paolites emerged victorious. Both have booked their place in this final through slender wins as while Martina Borg's sole goal separated Hibernians and Gozo, Emma Xuereb's sensational goal in the extra-time proved to be decisive for Raiders to turnaround the score to their favour and seal a place in the final. During their First Division campaign, Hibernians and Raiders met each other four teams with the Paolites winning three times while Raiders managed to snatch a point in their latest encounter. On behalf of the MFA Women's Department, we will await an exciting final, played in a sports atmosphere and last but not least, a final which can promote and raise the image of women's football. 


Keith Gouder, Hibernians FC Coach: 

''Today's match is very important for both sides, since it is the final. Our target is to win another trophy. It might not be that easy but definitely with the quality of the players that we possess, we can reach our target. Only these 90 minutes count and I am sure that the players will give their very best to be better than our opponents. In such a game, motivation plays a key role and during this season, the players always showed a great character when it was needed the most. I have big faith in my players, that they can emulate last season's success.''


League standing: 1st with 56 points after 20 matches (18W-2D-0L).

Road to final: 3-1 vs Birkirkara (AET); 1-0 vs Gozo. 


Johann Scicluna, Raiders (Luxol) Coach:
