Ħamrun, Naxxar Lions and La Playa de Arena secured a place in the Nestle Ice Cream Beach Soccer Tournament semifinals when they achieved important victories during last week. Eventually there’s a fierce battle for the fourth place as all the other teams are still in the chance of making it to the final four.

Hamrun remained in the first place of the table after achieving two important victories. They defeated Naxxar Lions 7-2 in a game they dominated for long stretches.

The Blues made up for this loss after beating Ta’ Xbiex 8-5.

Vincenzo Margiotta continued to show his potential in this league after scoring five goals with Giuseppe Barone, Simone Palma and Sharlon Diacono also finding the net.
