A HAT-TRICK BY ALFRED EFFIONG PUT BALZAN AT THE TOP OF THE TABLE

Sunday 27th September 2015 : Balzan maintained their unbeaten run after their sixth match as they beat Mosta FC 3 – 1.

Balzan took the lead on the 26th minute when ALFRED EFFIONG dribbled past a number of defenders before beating goalkeeper Yenz Cini.

Just before half time, Mosta equalised thanks to a cross shot by MANALITO MICALLEF,  from a long-distance from the right, which surprised goalkeeper Valerio Senatore.

Balzan regained the lead on 59 minutes. Once again ALFRED EFFIONG, this time after receiving a pass from Edison Bilbao Zarate, placed the ball at the back of the net for the second time.

On the 86th minute, ALFRED EFFIONG sealed the issue with his third goal, after being served by Godwin Mensha. His low shot finished with the ball hitting the upright before ending at the back of the net.

Two minutes in added time, Dyson Falzon was sent off for Mosta following a rough tackle on an opponent.
