ROY Chipolina and Lee Casciaro bagged the goals in league leaders’ Lincoln Red Imps 2-0 win over St Joseph’s.

Gibraltar - 8th November 2015 - St Joseph 2-0 Lincoln Red Imps, First Division football. St Josephs were frustrated from the start of the match by the wide flank play of Lincoln that stretched their defence. Lincoln who were not scared to play the ball across the field to open up play soon gathered pace with several threatening attacks thwarted by Perez and co. A quarter of an hour into the match a failed attempt at offside by St Joseph left Roy Chipolina free inside the penalty area. Controlling a high pass to him, he volleyed the ball into the top far corner of the net for Lincolns first. St Joseph continued trying to frustrate Lincoln, however, quick passing across the field, and continous runs down the flank soon saw St Joseph concede a corner. The ball was played in and soon found an unmarked man at the far side, providing Lincoln with their second. Lincoln were prevented from scoring two more, one after Walker beat Perez to the bounce at the edge of the penalty box, but saw the ball go wide, and immediately after from a supberb point blank safe by Perez from a Cabreras shot. The second half saw St Josephs come in determined to change the gameplan. More aggressive and determined in the centre of the field, St Josephs succeeded in frutrating Lincolns gameplay, but also succeeded in making the much disjointed and messy in the midfield. Lincoln were unable to build upon their lead, with the eloquence of the first half lost. St Josephs for their part, although much stronger in the centre of the field, winning balls and making Lincoln lose them, showed little by way of a real threat on Lincolns goal to change the game.
