Kondowe keeps Bullets on top
Fischer Kondowe's late strike earned Big Bullets a 1-1 draw against second-placed Blantyre United at Kalulu Stadium on Sunday afternoon to remain on top of the TNM Super League.
With the winner of this second round match assured of the driving seat, United enjoyed much possession while Bullets defence struggled. First half ended goalless.
After break, United finally made their superiority count as veteran Maxwell Chirwa's quick exchange of passes with Brown Mizeye set through Sparrow Msowoya who cooly slotted past goalkeeper Vincent Gona on the 52nd minute.
United kept threatening, teasing and tormenting Bullets with an exchange of beautiful passes but failed to kill off the game. They were to be punished as their defender handled in the box for Kondowe to score.
The result leaves Bullets on top of the 16-member league with 38 points while United have 36 points. In another league game, Brian Chikwanda's lone goal earned Moyale Barracks a 1-0 win over rivals Kabwafu FC in a Mzuzu derby.
Moyale are ninth with 22 points while Kabwafu anchor the standings on 13 points.
