Mosta 2                (49′ Kemar Reid,80′ Kemar Reid)

Ħamrun Spartans dominated the first half and finished the first half by four goals to nil.

Player of the math Haruna Garba opened the score after just 6 minutes when he picked up possession on the edge of the area and hit a rasping drive that gave no chance to Mosta goalkeeper Yenz Cini.

Ħamrun doubled 8 minuteslater when Jake Grech’s curling drive came off the bar. Jorginho was first on the rebound and put in the net.

On 29 minutes, Garba sped past Triston Grant and squared the ball towards the sprinting Jake Grech who bundled the ball into the net.

In stoppage time, Garba headed the ball past Cini from a Grech corner kick.

With four goals down, Mosta tried to react in the second half. Mosta pulled a goal back on 48 minutes when Kemar Reid’s low drive had the better of the Ħamrun goalkeeper.

The Spartans added a fifth when Saturday Nanapere was fouled upended in the area by Emerson Vella and Grech made no mistake from the resultant penalty.

Mosta scored a second goal ten minutes from time. Reid took responsibility of a central free-kick and his curler flew into the net.

With this win, Hamrun Spartans moved to fourth place in the Premier League.
