Nadur Youngsters scored two goals in each half in their match against Gharb Rangers so that they retained their perfect start in the championship. With this result Nadur also took sole leadership on the table and they also remain the only side in the top flight that has not conceded a goal from the first three matches. Nadur dominated over their opponents, who remain without a point from the first three matches of the championship, and paved the way to the win with two goals scored during the opening stages of the encounter. Gharb never managed to create serious danger to Nadur’s goal so that the latter expressed their superiority by scoring two more goals during the second period.
Nadur took command of play as expected from the very beginning and also managed to open the score during the opening minutes of the encounter.
