Bullets Reserves were lucky to secure victory in a tense encounter that kept supporters of both sides on the edge of their seats for the better part of the 90 minutes.

Emmanuel Savieli put Bullets ahead in the early minutes while Mark Chembezi equalised for the Division One side.

However, Chikumbutso Salima restored Bullets Reserves lead before Savieli claimed his second and Bullets Reserves third to secure the title for the Premier Division champions.

Bullets Reserves Coach Enos Chatama said it was not an easy victory.

“We planned to score two quick goals in the first half but that was not the case since Zingwangwa defended excellently. Nevertheless, we are happy to emerge winners,” Chatama said.

His counterpart Dida Zingwangwa conceded defeat but applauded his charges for a spirited performance.

“I am extremely proud of my team. They all worked hard but we let in two silly goals,” he said.

Powertex Managing Director Itayi Chidzero pledged continued support.

“As a corporate citizen, we will continue promoting football in the country,” he said.

Football Association of Malawi Executive Member Felistus Dossi and SRFA Chairperson Raphael Humba thanked PowerStart for powering lower league football in the country.
