Comeback after Croatia defeat

The Maltese Hockey national team obtained their first win at the EuroHockey Championships Division 3 as they saw off Serbia 8-0 on Saturday.

The Maltese led by Chris Attard adopted an aggressive approach from the word go and managed to score four goals in the first two quarters. From there on it was no match for the Serbians.

The Maltese team surged ahead after six minutes through Thomas Degiovanni with the second quarter being positive for them as they scored three more goals by Keith Calleja, Chris Agius, and Zak Degiovanni.

As the third quarter didn’t produce any goals, in the four quarter, they maintained their consistency and hit the target three more times through Luke Bajada, Julian Zahra, and Thomas Degiovanni who notched a hat-trick.

Meanwhile, Malta were beaten 5-2 by a superior Croatian side on Friday.

The team played some good hockey and maintained a disciplined structure throughout the game creating some good chances. Malta scored the first and last goals of the match through Karl Chircop and Calleja respectively, with Croatia’s David Krajinovic, Gregor Fujs, Luka Mesaric, Noa Sluga and Marko Cacic grabbing the rest.

These goals may be important for the final championship placing as Malta stands on four points after a win, a draw, and three defeats.
