Bankers on action in blue

Former TN Stars attacker Stain Davie’s brace and a goal from former Simba SC winger Duncan Nyoni were all what Silver Strikers FC needed to punish Kamuzu Barracks FC at home while ending their unbeaten run in five games at Silver Stadium on Sunday, May 15, 2022.

The host, central Bankers, started the game on a speedy note no wonder they scored those 2 goals within a space of 10 minutes.

Midfielder Nyoni scored at 5th minute after he was left with room within the penalty box to take a powerful shot past Captain Lehman Nthala, who was guarding the sticks for KBFC.

Four minutes later Stain Davie scored the second goal for Bankers with a simple tap in, Nyoni being the architect after releasing a cross from the right.

Silver continued piling pressure to Kamuzu Barracks as they searched for more goals but visitors defence reorganized and contained the heat.

Center referee Chidziwitso Simbi controlled the game with no pressure.

Silver Strikers made an early change at 23rd minute as attacker Chawanangwa Kaonga who just returned from an injury picked a knock and was replaced by Uchizi Vunga.

Charles Kamanga, KB coach, brought in former Moyale Barracks FC’s Deus Mkutu for Christopher Mtambo at 29th minute. At half time it was the host leading by two goals to nil.

The Soldiers started the second half on a high note knowing they were behind by two goals with Mkutu coming closer to score twice but his efforts proved futile.

Kamanga made double substitutions bringing in Gregory Nachipo and Sam Gunda for Mattias Nyirenda and Ndaona Daisi though this was not enough to rescue the sinking Kamuzu Barracks boat which saw them being reduced to 10 men after goalkeeper Lehman Nthala handled the ball outside box. Zeliat Nkhoma was sacrificed for substitute goalkeeper Hastings Banda.

McDonald Yobe, assistant Coach for Bankers, who was in- charge of the game in absence of the head coach made other changes,Maxwell Phodo and Zebron Kalima were taken off for Tatenda M’balaka and Taonga Chimodzi.

Few minutes later Chidziwitso Simbi showed a red card to Dancun Nyoni for elbowing KB player.

As it was thought the second half would not produce any goal,there we went when KB defence was caught off guard.

Horace Mchoma and substitute goalkeeper Hastings Banda failed to clear the ball which Stain Davie simply tapped in at 90th minute,and yes it was sweet avenge for the bankers.

Charles Kamanga, KBFC coach, accepted the defeat and acknowledged Silver was better than them while McDonald Yobe said the boys worked hard hence the results but was quick to show dissatisfaction on Nyoni’s red card.

The win has taken Silver Strikers FC to position 4 with 15 points from 9 games their next assignment is against Rookies Sable Farming away at Mulanje Park Stadium in Mulanje.

Despite the defeat KB are still third on the log table with 17 points from 9 games they play MAFCO FC away in Chitowe, Nkhotakota.

The Leopards of Chikulamayembe (Rumphi United) were 1-0 victims as TN Stars who scored through Symon Chimenya at 42nd minute in the first half had to shine in an away fixture played at the Leopard den.
