Watch: Power Cut Hits Maltese 1st Division Match At Exactly The Worst Moment

The Maltese first division doesn't usually attract that many fans to its highlights, but that could change this week.

A power cut hit the match between high flying Marsa and mid-table St. Andrews exactly when you wouldn't want it to.

After an hour of the match, Marsa were looking like comfortable winners, 2-0 up and about to take a penalty to finish the game off.

However, just after the ball was struck the lights went out - potentially saving the taker's blushes as the goalkeeper looked like he could save it.


Several parts of Malta were affected by the power cut, and, while a Premier League fixture affected by it resumed roughly an hour later when the lights came back on, Marsa and St. Andrews' encounter was abandoned by the match referee.

In keeping with the competition rules, the game will resume at a later date from the 62nd minute. Marsa will be hoping they can complete the victory, as they are currently second and just three points behind first division leaders Pembroke.

However, we'll possibly never know if this was going in...
