Youthful teams in the on-going Rainbow Paints Southern Region Netball League are determined to cause some upsets this season.
As usual the three giants Tigresses, Kukoma Diamonds and Thunder Queens have occupied the first three positions as the first round draws to an end.
Since 2002, the league has been a three-horse race as other developing teams struggle to break jinx.
However, Alliance Capital Stars Captain, Phallace Mkama, was optimistic that the team coach Mary Waya has finally identified solutions to their problems.
“It is our wish that we should move into top three. We believe the coach has discovered the right combination to help us move forward,” she said.
Mkama said Alliance Capital Stars were well funded and there was a need to beat some big teams.
“We can cause some shocking results if we keep working hard and following the coaches’ instructions,” she said.
Prison Sisters Shooter Ethel Ng’ambi warned the giants that they should not get excited with their lead at the top of the table.
“I know most youthful teams are equally working hard to shock some of these big teams,” she said.
Ng’ambi said Prison Sisters were eying to break into top three permanently.
“We once finished in top three and it is possible to replicate the form which fired us up,” she said.
League action will continue today at Blantyre Youth Centre with Kukoma Diamonds taking on Young Professionals whereas Tigresses will face Chilomoni Sisters. Alliance Capital Stars will date Gerald Tasaukadala Sisters. The three games will be played at Blantyre Youth Centre. In another match set for Mulanje Park, Chitakale Sisters will meet Prison Sister
