BOV Third Division

Kalkara wrapped up the BOV Third Division title after beating Santa Venera Lightnings 2-1 at the Centenary Stadium while Luqa St Andrews went down 2-1 to Msida St Joseph.
 


Ryan Sell (23) and Timmy Thomas (62) handed Kalkara a two-goal advantage, with Conrad Tabone pulling one back for Santa Venera Lightnings nine minutes from the end.

 

With this win, Kalkara have opened an unassailable lead at the top as they lead the Division Three table with 56 points from 22 games.

 

Santa Lucia are also making a return to the Division Two after a long absence.

 

Last weekend, the Saints secured promotion with a 2-1 victory over Dingli Swallows. Sebastian Perdomo put Santa Lucia in front on 69 minutes and Andrea Cutajar doubled their advantage eight minutes later.

 

Luke Galea, from the penalty spot, scored Dingli’s consolation goal in stoppage time.

 

Santa Lucia, in second place, now have 49 points from 23 games.

 

At the Sirens Stadium, Clint Zammit’s brace, in the 45th and the 60th minute, kept Msida St Joseph’s slender promotion hopes alive as they had the better of fellow contenders Luqa St Andrews 2-1.

 

Luqa narrowed the deficit when Lee Baldacchino converted a penalty but the goal came too late for them to try and force a reaction.

 

Third-placed Luqa have a five-point lead on Msida with two games left.

 

Mtarfa beat Marsascala 3-1 with a brace from Paul Azzopardi (28, 62) and an own goal by John Paul Galea (48).
Christian Bordieri reduced the gap for Marsascala after converting a penalty 13 minutes from time.

 

At the Charles Abela Stadium, Mdina Knights came from two goals down to edge Xgħajra Tornadoes 3-2.

 

Xgħajra led 2-0 with 20 minutes left with goals from Antoine Barbara and Royter Degiorgio but Gilbert Camilleri halved the deficit to inspire Mdina’s revival.

 

Daniel Cremona equalised with a stunning goal 15 minutes from time and Aryton Buhagiar sealed Mdina’s win late on.

 

Ta' Xbiex and Kirkop United drew 1-1 in an entertaining game that produced three red cards.

 

Paul Francis Sumaila gave Ta' Xbiex the lead but Matthew Cassar levelled for Kirkop four minutes from the end.

 

Matthew Caruana and Michael Theuma were sent off for Kirkop United while Ta’ Xbiex had Giuseppe Barone receiving his marching orders.
