Silver Strikers displace Bullets



TNM Super League defending champions Silver Strikers displaced Big Bullets on the second place after a 1-0 beating of Lilongwe City rivals, Blue Eagles at Silver Stadium.

Frank Banda scored the sole goal on the 26th minute to push Silver to 40 points and end the Eagles’ 13-game unbeaten run.

Silver moved up as Bullets slipped to third on 39 points following a 2-2 draw with Mafco at the reopened Kamuzu Stadium. Mafco had beaten Bvumbwe Research 1-0 on Saturday in Zomba.

At the giant Blantyre stadium, Diverson Mlozi put Bullets in front on five minute; finishing off Godfrey Masonda’s goal-bound shot.

But Saidi Mtekama responded on the half-hour mark; his header leaving Bullets goalkeeper Vincent Gona and his defenders in no man’s land.

But Bullets were not done. Ex-Black Leopards winger Fischer Kondowe squared the ball from a left frank corner kick for left back Douglas Chirambo to thump the ball into the net on 41st minute.

Thriving on come backs, Mafco’s Jimmy Nzunga struck with a minute to break as Bullets defence, which lost Sankhani Mkandawire to injury on three minutes, looked hopeless.

Second half looked promising but there was no goal from either side.

Up the table, Blantyre United still lead on 42 points after beating Escom United 6-3 at the Kalulu Stadium through Sparrow Msowoya and Brown Mizeye double. Jimmy Chikulekule and Muhamad Sulumba also netted.

In other games, Civo United eased past Azam Tigers, who chalked a 3-0 win over Epac on Saturday, 2-0 in Lilongwe.

In Mzuzu, Mighty Wanderers returned with four points after a 0-0 draw with Moyale Barracks on Saturday was followed by a 3-0 thrashing of bottom-placed Kabwafu, thanks to Pempho Chibweya, Idriss Walesi and Diverson Chilemba strikes.
