3 teams out of Fisd Cup


Three Southern Region Super League teams—Blantyre United, Red Lions and Premier Bet Wizards—have been shown the exit door of Fisd Challenge Cup.

United were massacred 3-0 by Kamuzu Barracks (KB) on Wednesday afternoon at Chilomoni Stadium in Blantyre.

After going four consecutive league matches without a win, KB bounced back to score through Spikile Fumulani, Manase Chiyesa and Kelvin Hang’anda.


In a post-match interview, United Coach, MacDonald Mtetemera, said he was concerned about the team’s performance.

“It is disappointing to see the team failing to score even a single goal in the last five matches,” Mtetemera said.

KB Coach, Billy Phambala, praised his charges for the job well done.


“This result will transform our performance. We are now looking for our first victory in the second-round of the TNM Super League,” Phambala said.

In another game, Lions are also out of the cup following a 3-1 loss to Masters Security FC at Balaka Ground.

Juma Yatini scored a brace for Masters and another goal came from Patience Kalumo. Patrick Luhanga scored a consolation goal for Lions.

Another preliminary round match saw Wizards FC bow out after losing 3-0 to Mzuni at Mzuzu Stadium.

Lazarus Nyemera and Timothy Sulwembe (a brace) scored for Mzuni.

On Tuesday, Azam Tigers beat Civil Sporting 5-4 on post-match penalties after a one-all draw at Civo Stadium in Lilongwe.

The preliminary round games involving the Super League teams continue next Tuesday when defending champions, Be Forward Wanderers, travel to Mzuzu to take on Moyale Barracks.

In another match, Nyasa Big Bullets will travel to Chitowe Stadium to face Dwangwa United.

Elsewhere, Blue Eagles host Chitipa whereas Silver Strikers will play Mafco also on Wednesday.
