Tigresses lead Rainbow Paints


Free-scoring Tigresses have returned to the top of the Rainbow Paints Southern Region Netball League after winning two games over the weekend.

Tigresses defeated Prison Sisters 75-43 on Saturday before thrashing Gerald Tasaukadala Sisters 101-13 the following day. Both games took place at Blantyre Youth Centre (BYC).

The defending champions have 30 points from 11 games.


During the match, Tigresses’ Coach, Peace Chawinga-Kaluwa, continued with her rotation policy to ensure that her charges fit in any position.

“The idea is to change the formation or the flow of the game using the same players. I am happy with how the players are responding in our quest to defend the league,” Chawinga-Kaluwa said.

Second-placed Kukoma Diamonds kept the pressure on the defending champions when they hammered Alliance Capital Stars 58-25 at BYC.


Diamonds lie second also with 30 points but they have played 10 games, one less than Tigresses.

The team’s Assistant Coach, Noel Mussa, said they will keep on fighting to snatch the championship from Tigresses.

“We will not relax because we want to win the league having missed it last season. So far, we are impressed with how the team has started the second round,” Mussa said.

Thunder Queens also returned to action on Sunday and they tormented Young Professionals with 79-20 victory.  Thunder lie third with 24 points from 10 games.
