    Ta' Soldi Rabat maintained their perfect start to the season and their march towards a record breaking sixth consecutive title with a hard fought 2-1 win over Pasta Poiatti Qormi.

    There is still a long way to go and most certainly both The Hunters Tower and Pasta Poiatti, despite a second consecutive defeat, will have other ideas about the League title.

    At the moment, however the hockey league standings has a familiar look about it with Ta' Soldi leading the pack and on Sunday they will end their first round commitments with the much awaited clash against The Hunters Tower YS.

    Ta' Soldi were pushed all the way by Pasta Poiatti before they left the field with three points. After a balanced opening fifteen minutes Ta' Soldi forged ahead when Jason Vella was quick to pick up a rebound after Chircop had saved Radojevic's first hit at goal.

    Pasta Poiatti were quick to react as a Philip Magri hit from the edge of the dee went just out. The game was flowing from one end to the other as a brilliant run from scorer Vella set up Micallef but his flick sailed out. Poiatti's John Borg also had a flick sailing over the cross bar.

    The second half was played out along the same lines and after 20 minutes Pasta Poiatti equalized. Steve Tanti and John Borg worked out a good ball down the left flank and the former beat Azzopardi from close range.

    Radojevic went close for Ta' Soldi as din Kevin Micallef while Poiatti's Tanti and Borg combined once again but this time Borg's attempt at goal was blocked.

    The game seemed destined for a draw but two minutes from Ta' Soldi struck again. From the second of two identically taken short corner actions Shawn Falzon struck home the winner.

    In the second game of the day BDO Hs and Britannia Tours played out a rather drab and tame scoreless draw. Following the 5-0 defeat at the hands of Ta'Soldi, Britannia Tours will be happy with this point.

    Despite conceding a lot of possession, Britannia creating some good openings but their lack of experience up front made them fluff the chances that came their way.

    On their part BDO Hs, coming from two consecutive 1-0 defeats against Ta' Soldi and The Hunters Tower, must have been expecting more from this game but their chronic lack of punch up front was once again more then evident.

    BDO Hs have now gone four competitive games without scoring a goal certainly not the kind of performance expected from a team that started the season by winning the Super Cup.
