Nyasa Big Bullets and Civil Sporting Club returned to winning ways after registering victories in their respective TNM Super League matches Sunday.
After two consecutive draws against Mzuni and Chitipa United, Bullets responded emphatically with a 3-0 thrashing of rookies Mlatho Mponela at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre whereas Civil beat Ntopwa by the same margin at Civo Stadium to end a five-game winless run.
Civil were coming from five consecutive league losses.
Hassan Kajoke hammered a brace before Mike Mkwate scored Bullets’ third goal.
Fletcher Bandawe, Blessings Tembo and Kelvin Thotho were on target for Civil.
Bullets have moved to position four with 18 points from nine games, two points behind leaders Kamuzu Barracks who have played the same number of games.
The win over Ntopwa saw Civil climb to position 12 on the log table with 12 points from nine games.
At Silver Stadium, Khuda Muyaba continued his impressive form when he scored the lone goal of the match as Silver Strikers defeated Moyale 1-0.
Silver Team Manager, Itai Nundwe, admitted it was a tough game.
“We missed several chances in the first half and allowed Moyale to pile pressure on us in the second half. However, we worked hard to earn full points,” Nundwe said.
Moyale Team Manager, Victor Phiri, claimed the officiating panel denied them a clear goal.
“We played good football but the referee made some questionable decisions,” Phiri said.
In another game played Sunday, Karonga United suffered their second consecutive defeat after going down 2-1 to Dwangwa United at Chitowe.
Graciam Chinkhande scored a brace whereas Anthony Mfune netted the consolation for Karonga.
