In the last match from Match-Day 8 of the second division campaign, Victoria Hotspurs scored four goals in each half of the encounter against St Lawrence Spurs to obtain three easy points and reach Sannat Lions at the top of the table.

The match was practically decided within the first part of the encounter where the Hotspurs managed to convert their superiority into goals. St Lawrence found it extremely difficult to neutralise Victoria’s pressure and could not find a way to avoid the heavy defeat. Victoria’s Wellington Valentim De Sousa and Shaun Attard were the main protagonists in this match as the two strikers scored a hat-trick each.
