2 – Hibernians’ 8-1 victory over Lija Athletic was their second in the top flight. The same scoreline was registered on 20 January, 1946, against St Joseph (Msida) in which Tony Falzon scored five goals. The match was abandoned five minutes from normal time because of a deflated ball and there were no extra balls available... but the result stood.


10 – Hibernians made it 10 out of 10 against Lija Athletic ... scoring 40 goals and conceding only 4.

 

100 – Sylvano Comvalius’s goal for Sliema Wanderers in the 2-1 win over Birkirkara was the 100th scored by foreign players this season.

 

100 – In the match against Gudja United last Sunday, Floriana defender Enzo Ruiz made his 100th appearance in the BOV Premier Division. The 31-year-old Argentine defender has played all these matches for Floriana only. He made his debut for the club on 27th August, 2016 against St Andrews (3-1).

 

100 – In Monday’s match against Balzan (2-2), Ħamrun Spartans defender Karl Micallef made his 100th appearance in the Premier Division.
