The game was only four minutes old when Zach Muscat’s looping free-kick from a wide position on left landed at the feet of Birkirkara winger Ryan Camenzuli who poked home to put his team 1-0 up. In their next significant foray into Birkirkara’s half, Sliema levelled. Mark Scerri passed to Sliema skipper Alex Muscat who took one touch before arrowing his shot past Justin Haber who remained rooted to his spot. Both teams displayed a refreshingly attacking mindset. Birkirkara regained the lead shy the quarter-of-hour-mark when they were awarded a free-kick after Marko Potezica flattened Eliandro just outside the box and Rafael Ledesma bent his shot beyond the wall and away from Glenn Zammit’s reach. It was Ledesma’s 13th goal of the season. The tit-for-tat nature of the game persisted. Sliema made it 2-2 after 17 minutes.

11 August 2014 08:19:30 timesofmalta.com

Firefighters have rescued 24 people who were stranded on a roller coaster at a US amusement park. Prince George's County fire officials say it took about five hours to rescue 17 adults and seven children from The Joker's Jinx roller coaster at Six Flags America in Maryland. Assistant fire chief Paul Gomez says the riders were sitting upright near the top of the ride. A few had cramps, back pain and dehydration, but there were no major injuries. A Six Flags America spokesman said it is not yet clear what caused the ride to stop but that it has a computerised safety system that "performed as it is designed to". Six Flags' website says the ride goes 60mph and upside down four times.
