Lilongwe giants triumphant

Silver Strikers and Civil Sporting Club registered victories in their respective TNM Super League matches Sunday.

Silver claimed a 2-1 victory over TN Stars at Kasungu Stadium whereas Civil earned a hard-fought 3-2 win over Blue Eagles at Civo Stadium.

The Central Bankers had to come from behind after Mabvuto Chipolopolo gave Stars a first half lead but Michael Tetteh and Khuda Muyaba ensured maximum points with quick goals.

Following the win, Silver are on position six with 22 points from 12 games whereas Stars remain third with 26 points from 14 assignments.

At Civo Stadium, Civil ensured maximum points through Fletcher Bandawe’s brace and wonderful goal courtesy of Blessings Tembo.

Eagles scored through Maxwell Salambula and Kingsley Kuwali.

Civil Coach, Franco Ndawa, said the win had boosted his team’s morale.

“It was a very tough game but it is good to collect maximum points. I thank the players for working hard to emerge victorious,” Ndawa said.

Eagles assistant Coach, Wilson Chidati, said his charges conceded silly goals.

“We did not come to the party. We were not well prepared for the game and ended up conceding silly goals,” Chidati said.

In other games played Sunday, Mighty Tigers defeated Ntopwa 1-0 through Chasimbiwe Kanyika’s goal at Kamuzu Stadium whereas Karonga United and Moyale Barracks shared spoils after a 1-1 draw at Karonga Stadium.

Despite not playing Sunday, Be Forward Wanderers continue to lead the log table with 27 points, ahead of second-placed Kamuzu Barracks on goal difference.
