Gibraltar – 3rd January 2016 – With the match starting with rumours that both St Joseph and Britannia are seeking new blood in the coming transfer window, both teams set out determined to take the three points. A tense, end to end match saw both teams playing with intensity until the very last minute.
Britannia took the lead first only to see their joy end soon as St Joseph’s hit the back of the net within minutes. As the second half restarted Britannia took the lead and took advantage of St Josephs losing one of the players to a second yellow card. Steaming ahead to a 4-1 lead and with just minutes to go Britannia slowed down a couple of gears to their detriment. A ten man St Joseph continued to press forward and battle for every ball, eventually scoring two more goals within the closing minutes.
A miss in front of goal in the last seconds of injury time saw the excitement come to an end with St Josephs unable to get a deserved equaliser, in what turned out to be the most exciting match of the first weekend of 2016.
