Moyale Barracks Interim Coach, Charles Kamanga, has revealed the secret behind their away 2-0 win over fellow soldiers, Mafco, on Saturday— playing long balls.

“I told my boys that we have to play long balls to beat Mafco and that is exactly what they did. Going into the second leg, I can say we have an upper hand,” Kamanga said in a post-match interview after the Airtel Top 8 Cup quarterfinal first leg.

Mafco Coach, Temwa Msuku, admitted that Moyale’s early goal destabilised his team.

“We conceded an early goal which confused us. There was also lack of coordination between midfielders and strikers in the first-half. We have lost the game but in football, you never say never as anything can happen in Mzuzu,” Msuku said.

Moyale scored in each half to give themselves an upper hand going into next week’s return leg in Mzuzu.

Moyale’s dominance made a difference in the 16th minute when Dan Katunga received a square ball from Khuda Muyaba to tap in and put his team in front.

Lacking composure, coordination and fire power, Mafco played second fiddle to Moyale throughout the first-half.

Later, Mafco’s introduction of Victor Mpinganjira for wasteful Joseph Donsa upfront brought life to the team, but led by man of the match Timothy Nyirenda at the back, Moyale defended the lead jealously.

Boy boy Chima put the game beyond Mafco’s reach in the 89th minute when his long-range shot beat Mafco goalkeeper Jailosi Kapalamula.
