Hotsticks took the lead on 19 minutes when Silas Plaehn netted. After missing three penalty corner opportunities around the 22nd minute mark Hotsticks went further ahead just before half time when Steve Portelli shot home to send them into a 2–0 lead.
The second half was dominated by Hotsticks with Rabat’s defence keeping them at bay being well marshalled by Shawn Falzon until on 57 minutes Ryan Dalli netted Hotsticks’ third goal. Two minutes later Hotsticks were awarded a penalty stroke and Plaehn netted his second making no mistake from the spot sending his team 4–0 up. On 63 minutes Julian Zahra added a fifth and on the stroke of time, Zahra scored his second to give Hotsticks a 6–0 victory.
