Munxar Falcons obtained three deserved points form a 3-0 win over Sannat Lions so that they are the only team of the category with maximum points after two matches. Play was rather balanced during the first quarter of the encounter but the Falcons took full command of play after scoring their first goal so that they confirmed their intention to be serious challengers for the title and promotion this season. Munxar’s excellent start to the new season is also expressed by the fact that they scored seven goals with two clean sheets. The Falcons have the necessary potential to be among the protagonist of the campaign as they are motivated and well organized in all the departments. On the other hand Sannat disappointed in this match as they were shocked after conceding the first goal so that they never managed to recover the deficit.

Munxar gained confidence and increased their pressure on Sannat’s defense. On 28 minutes a shot bhy Michael Mattias Uzor ended inches away from Sannat’s goal and on the half hour mark Sannat’s goalie Owen Attard saved with difficulty to a corner a strike by Jordi Parnis. Nunxar doubled the score on 38 minutes when Jordi Parnis won the ball from a challenge with his direct opponent at the edge of the area and netted with a low drive. On 44 minutes the Falcons could have added another goal but Michael Mattias Uzor incredibly concluded wide when he arrived face to face with the goalkeeper following a corner action.
