KF TIRANA U-19
KF Tirana U-19 lose the Cup final
KF Tirana U-19 could not repeat the previous day success of the U-17. They lost in the Cup final against Partizani U-19 with scoreline 1-2.
First half white & blues played very well, although couldn’t convert the many created chances to a single goal. Unfortunately, at their best moment they were hit by a quick goal from opponent. Result 0-1 ends the first half. The second half also found Tirana in attack. Despite suffering another setback from Partizani, they managed to score at 82′ and make it 1-2. The 8 remaining minutes just weren’t enough to equalize, therefore the whole match finished 1-2.
Even though couldn’t win the trophy, Astrit Hafizi’s squad did very well in the first edition of the Cup going in the final and showing potential. Had they use their chances better, scoreline might have been different in the end.
