Three relegated in Malawi



Uninspiring results over the weekend confirmed the relegation from the 15-member Malawi TNM Super League of three teams, including a giant.

They will be replaced by second tier three regional champions.

Rookies Bvumbwe Research and Kabwafu United are back to where they came from; the Premier Division for the South and the Northern regions. But it is the going down of historic side, Escom United that has shocked Malawi football fraternity.

Escom lost 3-0 and 4-1 to Mafco FC and leaders Silver Strikers on Saturday and Sunday respectively in the Central Region to confirm their relegation for the first time since birth in the early 1990s.

Escom have 19 points from 25 games with three to go and they cannot survive the drop just like Bvumbwe who are third from the bottom on 21 points from 26 games. Bottom-placed Kabwafu have 14 points from 27 games.

On Saturday and Sunday, Bvumbwe lost 2-1 and 5-0 to Blue Eagles and Epac FC who had Ishmael Thindwa bagging four goals at Civo Stadium. Thindwa is now level on 14 goals with leading scorer Vincent Chinthenga of Bvumbwe.

Up the table, the championship chase is still among leaders Silver who have 51 points, second placed Big Bullets (49 points, Blantyre United (48 points) positioned third and Mighty Wanderers (42 points).

Bullets beat Moyale Barracks 2-0 through Gabadinho Mhango and Heston Munthali while Peter Pindani, Ndaona Daisi, Rodrick Gonani and Jester Mulima scored for Silver on Sunday with Escom's face-saver coming off the boots of Benard Harawa.
