Qormi Daikin 6 – 0 Floriana Youngstars

After having triumphed in the Super Cup last week nobody expected that Young Stars would be so soundly beaten by Qormi in their first encounter this season.

After a studious start Qormi were probing the Young Stars defence and dominating possession without breaching their lines but they went ahead on 12 minutes when Thomas Degiovanni beat three players to give Kyle Micallef an open goal, shooting Qormi into a 1 – 0 lead. They went further ahead on 20 minutes when Juan Sarcia slotted home as a result of a penalty corner action. On 25 minutes Shamison Mifsud affected a diving save to keep his goal intact, the half-time whistle blowing with Qormi retaining their two-goal lead.

No one imagined the fare the second half would produce. On 38 minutes Juan Sarcia fired a pass into the Dee, with Steve Tanti on hand to deflect it into the roof of the net, putting Qormi into a 3-0 lead. He then scored his second on 47 minutes to shoot his team into a 4-0 lead. The captain grabbed his hat-trick a few minutes later, after deflecting a reverse hit by Keith Calleja, leaving the goalkeeper with no chance. Juan Sarcia added his second in the final minutes, after firing a rocket hit from mid-air into the net after the Floriana’s custodian saved his first shot, burying the ball in the goal.

The second leg of the fixture will be played in two-weeks time. Thank you all for the support.

Qormi HC Winners of the Anthony G. Tabone Memorial Cup

Qormi HC were crowned winners of the Anthony G. Tabone Memorial Cup, taking home the trophy for the second year since its inauguration.

The 11-a-side tournament was seen as a chance to prepare for the upcoming season, with all players being given a chance to stake their claim in the first team. The team played four matches of 17.5 minutes each, winning three of them in normal time, and the other via a shoot-out.

The team held up well at both ends of the pitch, scoring 5 goals in 70 minutes of hockey, whilst keeping a clean sheet in all matches. Shamison Mifsud also managed to keep a clean sheet during the shoot-out.

Qormi HC will now face Floriana Youngstars in Challenge Cup Group B on Sunday 15th October at 11:00 a.m. We hope to see you there!

New Badge

This year the Club decided to change badge to celebrate the senior team winning ten National Leagues.

The Club would like to thank all who submitted his or her entry to the Badge Design Competition, where many fresh ideas were seen.

The final product of this competition is the badge below.

The badge combines various elements which represent the town of Qormi, from the black and yellow colours to the Citta Pinto coat of arms. A new interpretation of the previous logo is also included, showing club’s adaptation to changing times, even though it has been around since 1971. Finally, the Star commemorates the ten leagues won by the team, with seven in the last eight years.

We hope you like it :)
