The likes of wing attacker Beatrice Mpinganjira, goal-defender Catherine Yikwanga and goal-attacker Ellen Chibokho have been entrusted with leading Tigresses.

Youthful players such as Awema Chikaonda (goal-shooter), Cathy Khofi (centre) and Irene Khofi started the game yesterday whereas Eve Kazembe (goal-shooter) and Grace Nkhoma (wing-defender) came off the bench.

Tigresses Coach, Peace Chawinga-Kalua, said they were determined to catch-up with the rest of the teams.
