Three teams advanced to the VMFA Trophy semifinals after obtaining some positive results.

Holders MFPA found little difficulty in defeating Żurrieq Wolves 11-6.

Manuel Sevasta was the protagonist for the Malta Football Players Association when he scored three goals with Alexander Ribic and Carlo Mamo hitting the target twice. Matthew Xerxen, Aleksandar Marinkovic and an own goal added more goals for their team.

Żurrieq reduced the score after a hat-trick by Clarence Thompson, a double by Bjorn Bondin and another goal by Roderick Caruana.

Birkirkara St Helen’s dominated the match against Hibernians so much that they won 14-4.

The Stripes had Ayrton Buhagiar in fine form as he scored seven goals with Kevin Sammut notching a poker. Eric Saliba, Nikolay Filipov and Kevin Borg Degiorgio were also on the mark for Birkirkara St Helen’s

The Paolites reduced the score after two braces by Ilia Nazarov and Leandros Calleja.

Gzira United Veterans secured a place in the last four after beating Luxol St Andrew’s 9-3.

This was a special game for Alex Muscat as apart from scoring a goal, he was marking his return after six months because of an injury.

Valdo Alinho and David Azzopardi scored two goals each with Pio Schiriha, Jonathan Pearson, Kevin Vella, Gilbert Camilleri Lowell and Alex Muscat adding more goals for the Maroons.

For Luxol, Beppe Antignolo scored twice with Michael Galea adding another.

The semi-finals of the VMFA Trophy will be played next Wednesday at the St Dorothy’s Grounds Birkirkara St Helen’s facing MFPA (7pm) while Gzira United play against Rabat Veterans (8pm).
