Blue Eagles whack Epac 3-1 to maintain top position: TNM Super League

BLANTYRE(MaraviPost)—Blue Eagles on Saturday maintained the top position in the TNM Super League after thumping city rivals Epac FC 3-1 at the Silver Stadium in Lilongwe.

Eagles, who toppled Moyale Barracks from the top position of the league last weekend after beating Blantyre United, sent a strong
message to fellow title contenders Bullets and Moyale as they outclassed the Dean Josiah boys, alias Njenjete Za Ku Lilongwe, in all
departments.

The game was expected to be tough but Epac were on the back foot as Eagles controlled the affairs from the word go up to the last whistle.

The result means the police outfit and Bullets have 40 points but are separated by goal difference. However, Eagles have played a game more (20) than Bullets.

The race at the top is likely to be tight again as the third placed Moyale, who have 37 points, will have a simple job tomorrow as they
are facing out-of-form Karonga United.

The win will give the Kani ng’ina soldiers a chance to depose Bullets from second position.

In other games, Mafco beat their brothers in arm Airborne Rangers 3-1 at Chitowe Stadium while Bullets walloped their old arch rivals Mighty
Wanderers at the Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre.


AS IT STANDS NOW: TOP 5

Blue Eagles 40 points (20 games)
Big Bullets 40 points (19 games)
Moyale Barracks 37 points (18 games)
Mafco 30 points (19 games)
Red Lions 30 points (18 games)

Bullets’ supremacy over Nomads continues:TNM Super League

BLANTYRE(MaraviPost)—Big Bullets underlined their title ambitions by cementing their dominance over old rivals Mighty Wanderers with 1-0 victory on Saturday in the TNM Super league Blantyre city derby at the Kamuzu Stadium.

This is the sixth consecutive defeat for Wanderers at the hands of Bullets.

Bullets, who are eyeing for TNM title for the first time since its inception, started the game on high note as they were quick on the ball in the first 10 minutes while their counterparts were seen chasing shadows.

The combination of Victor Limbani, Henry Kabichi, Bashir Maunde, Dalitso Sailesi on midfield proved hard for the Nomads who were represented by Mike Kaziputa, Patrick Gunde, Jacob Ngwira, victor mpinganjira in the engine room.

Four minutes into the game Maunde took a brilliant shot but Noma ds goalie was alert to save the Rali Lubani Road boys from an early
embarrassment at the jam packed stadium.

Bullets continued to pile pressure on Nomads and defenders Enock Likoswe, Francis Mlimbika were busy at the back, shielding their
goalkeeper Chipuwa.

But in the 20th minute, former Epac defender Pilirani Zonda stole the show with his impressive overlapping which saw him scoring from far,
sending the Palestinians into wild celebration.

In the second half, Wanderers looked a changed side as they overpowered Bullets who seemingly started defending their slender
lead.

But Wanderers efforts to get an equalizer proved futile as the striking force which comprised Cuthbert Kanyama Sineta and Khumbo
Ng’ambi failed to unlock the defence of Bullets which was led by Sankhani Nkandawire.

After the game coach Elia Kananji was quick to thank God for the win.

“I thank God that we have won the game. It was a tough game but at the end we have emerged victor. I also thank the players for putting a
gallant fight up to the last whistle. More importantly, defenders should be also be given respect for defending well,” said Kananji.

His counterpart Gerald Phiri could not hide his disappointment with the sixth defeat in a row at the hands of rivals.

“It’s sad that we have lost to our rivals for sixth consecutive times. This is not good for rivals but that’s the game of football anyway. We
will sit down and work on our weaknesses so that in the remaining games we should do well,” said Phiri.

The win has seen Bullets claiming second position on the log table with 40 points, trailing behind Blue Eagles, who have also 40 points
but the latter have a better goal aggregate.

Moyale are on third position with 37 points but they have chances to dislodge Bullets on second position if they win tomorrow’s game
against rookies Karonga United.
