Bullets go top of the log

Big Bullets finally seized control of the TNM Super League driving seat after brushing aside tail-enders Bvumbwe Research 2-0 in the old capital, Zomba on Saturday.

James Chilapondwa stepped forward to convert a penalty before sensational Gabadinho Mhango ended his month-long goal’ drought with the second killer goal.

Now leading the 15-member log table on 37 points, the Bullets finished the match with 10-men following Chilapondwa’s red carding.

But there was need to worry for Bullets assistant coach Gerald Phiri who took charge of the match in absence of his pre-occupied boss Eddington Ngonamo.

There was another change on the ladder as Blantyre United edged Red Lions 3-2 at Kalulu Stadium to claim the second slot on 35 points, courtesy of strikes from Jimmy Chikulekule, Victor Limbani and Sparrow Msowoya.

A superior goal aggregate separates Blantyre United from the deposed leaders, the Lions now placed third, one point in front of holders, Silver Strikers.

In Lilongwe, Civo United lost 3-2 to Kamuzu Barracks, their first defeat since the sacking of coach Alex Masanjala. Bvumbwe remain bottom on 15 points.

In Carlsberg Cup, Blue Eagles meet Escom United in the final after beating Evirom and Kabwafu by 2-0 margins respectively on Saturday.
