With the trip to Lithuania less than a week away, the National Team played their final two friendlies over the weekend.

On Saturday they took on a mix of Floriana YS, Rabat and White Hart players in a match that ended 1-0. The score did not show the dominance of the national team who had superior possession, number of short corners and shots at goal however did not make these count.

On Sunday the team took on a team made up of ex-National Team players in what started as an emotional affair as a tribute was given to Tony Tabone. With his family present, a token of the two teams’ gratitude was presented to them and everyone witnessed a minutes silence in respect of a man who dedicated half a century to Maltese hockey. The final score was 4-0 with a better performance from the team compared to the previous day.

On Thursday the team leaves for Lithuania to finally see whether they can bring home the silverware.
