Nicole Sciberras and her Tavagnacco side secured a crucial Serie B Femminile win after beating fellow promotion challengers Brescia 2-1, on Sunday afternoon.
The Malta women’s international came on in the second half for Tavagnacco when the score was 1-1. Tavagnacco had opened the score twenty minutes from time but Brescia managed to level terms moments later.
Nonetheless, Tavagnacco’s late rally paid dividends as they scored the winning goal that propelled them into fourth place. With 13 points and a game in hand, they are now just three points distant from leaders Pink Bari.
Next Wednesday, Tavagnacco travel to Roma Calcio Femminile where Sciberras will meet fellow Maltese player Martina Borg.
