Chawanangwa Kawonga, Matthews Sibale in winning combo



The game was for Mozambique’s top-flight league but this was the show of Malawians— Chawanangwa Kawonga and Matthews Sibale— who combined to devastating effect as they led Costa do Sol to a 2-0 win over hosts Maio de Quelimane on Sunday.

Mozambique newspaper, Verdade, reports that the former Silver Strikers forwards helped Costa end a two-game winless run after they had drawn and lost the previous games.


Sibale, the Malawi top scorer of the 2017 season, opened the scoring in the first-half before Kawonga sealed the win with a free-kick to keep Costa on 10th place with 17 points from 15 games.

In a telephone interview, Kawonga Tuesday said he was happy to increase his tally to six league goals. Sibale also has six league goals.

Costa have finished the first-round, whose leaders are Ferroviaro de Maputo, with 29 points from 15 games. The leaders defeated Vilanculos 1-0 at Machava Stadium on Sunday, thanks to Kelo’s goal.


Third-placed Ferroviaro de Nampula, home to Malawians John Banda Ndaziona Chatsalira and Schumacher Kuwali, have 22 points from 14 games followed by Chibuto and Textafrica who also have similar points. Sporting Nampula anchor the 16-member log table with 12 points from 15 games.
