Central Region netball giants, Blue Eagles Sisters and Civonets started Central Health Limited, Women’s Clinic Netball League on a good note after registering convincing victories over the weekend.
The games were played at Nankhaka Netball Court in Lilongwe.
Eagles defeated Green Sisters 37-16, whereas Civonets, under the tutelage of White Mlilima, beat Green Sisters 29-12.
There were also wins for Limboba (team comprising men only) and Green Sisters Junior.
Limboba beat Kamuzu Barracks Lioness 23-21 in an entertaining encounter, whereas Green Sisters triumphed 25 -16 over Katalama.
In a post-match interview, Eagles Sisters coach, Sam Kanyenda, said he was happy that his charges have started the league with the victory.
“We have a full squad now. The only problem is that there is no coordination in the team because some have just returned from police training. We hope by next week, the team will be back in shape,” Kanyenda said.
Lilongwe and District Netball League (LDNL) chairperson, Charity Malanga, described the league as competitive.
“All the teams that registered, apart from Mafco, came. Due to logistical problems, they [Mafco] will start playing next week,” Malanga said.
A total of 20 teams have registered in the league. Central Health Limited, Women’s Clinic is sponsoring the league to the tune of K2.6 million.
The sponsorship also aims at promoting awareness about cervical cancer screening and vaccine for girls.
