St Andrews made a flying start to the match as they went ahead after just five minutes. Romeu Romao handled the ball inside the penalty area and the referee pointed towards the spot. From the eleven metres mark, Atkinson made no mistake.

Mosta equalised on the 13th minute. Massimo Sammartino’s cross went into the path of Renan Oliveira whose shot went past Matthew Calleja Cremona.

However, St Andrews still managed to regain the lead on the 56th minute. Brown played Atkinson through on goal and the latter went inside the penalty area before finishing inside the net.

Atkinson completed his hat-trick on the 74th minute. The Jamaican player received the ball from Kyle Butler and hit an angled shot that gave Vella no chance.

Adrian Borg of St Andrews was sent off two minutes from time, but this had little impact on the game as the Saints held on.
