MOSTA 0 FLORIANA 1 Floriana brought to an end a three-match winless streak when they defeated Mosta by a solitary goal scored by their captain Nicolas Chiesa early in the game. There was nothing tangible during the opening period even if Floriana showed a more offensive deposition. Nothing really happened until the 39th minute. Mosta failed to clear a long throw by Alex Cini as Nicolas Chiesa positioned on the penalty spot pushed the ball behind Yenz Cini, yesterday preferred to Emanuel Bartolo. Floriana assistant coach Salvatore Caleca, guiding the team from the touchline, brought in Ryan Camenzuli for Gustavo but the quality of play still remained very drab despite the efforts Chiesa and Steve Pisani who were trying to inject some sort of rationality in the Greens’ play. The Greens had a chance ten minutes after the break, but Cini was on hand to tip Varela’s header over the bar. On the other side, Jaroslav Repa was off target with a free-kick past the hour mark. It was again Varela for Floriana who shot into Cini’s hands after Samb headed the ball into the path of the sprinting Argentine striker. Kemmu Jackson went near for Mosta in the 85th minute when he outpaced his marker... >

VALLETTA-1, TARXIEN RAINBOWS-0 A brilliant goal from substitute Michael Mifsud gave Valletta a hard-earned 1-0 win over Tarxien Rainbows. The champions found the going tough as Tarxien matched them all over the pitch but their efforts were undone by Mifsud who came off the bench to keep his team on the winning track. The first half produced little excitement as Valletta struggled to break down the organised Tarxien defence. Jean Borg shot wide from a wide position and Jhonnattann did likewise after Alex Alves had blocked Federico Falcone's effort. Late in the first half, Andrea Cassar, the Tarxien goalkeeper, repelled Jhonnattann's flick after he had pushed away Falcone's header. Off colour in the first half, Valletta needed to raise their game significantly after the change of ends if they were to unlock the Tarxien defence. Valletta produced their best chance so far when Valdo Alhinho cut out a pass outside the Tarxien box and the ball rolled to Falcone. The Argentine crossed for Jhonnattann whose strong drive was beaten away by Cassar. Tarxien also had a great chance to open the scoring as Aguirre's miscued clearance dropped to Prendes in the box and the Argentine picked out... >

Justice should come in a child-friendly language to improve better access for children. This was one of several recommendations that emerged from the second National Conference on Child Well-being and access to justice, organised by the President’s Foundation For The Well-being Of Society. The recommendations were elaborated upon by President Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca. "Without meaningful access to justice, children’s rights only exist on paper. They will remain absent in practice, and beyond the reach of the children who need them the most," she said. "Children are very capable of speaking for themselves. We need to make it safe for them to speak," the President added, citing the Children’s House model as good practice. She pointed out that some children had increased exposure to risk, particularly those suffering from loneliness or deprived of liberty, such as asylum seekers. These arrived in Malta with very little knowledge of what is owed to them and how they could set justice procedures in motion. “Support was needed for young people in detention and those in rehabilitation for substance abuse. Child victims of violence need immediate psychosocial support, provided by the... >

BALZAN 3 HAMRUN SPARTANS 1 Leaders Balzan sent a clear warning to their rivals that their defeat against Birkirkara was just an isolated incident in an otherwise impressive start to their league commitments. Ħamrun started life without Haruna Garba in a traumatic way when the game had barely started with Alan da Silva Souza scoring one of the quickest Premier League goals this season after 48 seconds. Balzan attacked straight from the kick-off and the Brazilian bursting through from midfield, outsmarted Saturday Nanapere, before drilling a low shot past Matthew Farrugia, from a somewhat angled position. Da Silva Souza’s goal get the tone for the match as the Brazilian ran far more confidence that any of his markers from the first whistle. Another neat interchange between Lydon Micallef and the effervescent da Silva Souza would have produced a second goal for Balzan inside the first two minutes but the post stood in his way. The Spartans started to push forward in a bid to get back into contention and Jake Galea saw his first effort blocked by the sliding Dylan Grima, the U-21 midfielder was first on the rebound but dragged his effort just wide off Ivan Janjusevic’s far post.
