MALTA        14


Malta secured their second consecutive win in the UEFA Youth U-16 Girls Development Tournament after outclassing Gibraltar on Wednesday at the Centenary Stadium.

As the scoreline suggests, the Maltese girls dominated the match from start to finish.


Malta made their intentions clear from the early stages. Our girls opened a two-goal lead in the first 10 minutes through Kailey Willis and Maia Debono.


Dorianne Theuma’s side stayed on the front foot and drove home their superiority with further goals from Veronique Mifsud, Willis, who netted four more goals in the first half, Maya Lucia and Debono to go in for the half-time break with a staggering 9-0 lead.


After the change of ends, Malta added five more goals through Emma Ciantar, who scored twice, and three goals by Maria Michaela Cassar.


The Maltese girls face Liechtenstein in their final match on Friday at the Centenary Stadium (kick-off 10.30 a.m.).


Liechtenstein lost to Andorra 4-3 on penalties in Wednesday’s second match following a 0-0 draw.
