Capital City giants Silver Strikers beat Blue Eagles 1-0 on Sunday afternoon to climb to the second position on the log table in a match played at the Bankers’ backyard in Lilongwe.
The Bankers have accumulated 40 points from 19 games to displace Big Bullets to third position following the latter’s 2-2 draw against Salima-based Mafco at the re-opened Kamuzu Stadium on the same day.
Douglas Chirambo and Divason Mlozi scored for Bullets whereas Jimmy Mzunga and Saidi Mtekama replied for the soldiers.
The People’s Team now has 39 points from 22 games played so far.
Big Bullets coach Eding’toni Ng’onamo was in disbelief after the final whistle as he described the outcome of the match as a set back to their ambition of grabbing the league title.
“This was a must win game but all is not lost and our focus will be on the next fixture,” said Ng’onamo.
Mafco coach Stereo Gondwe was on cloud nine praising his boys for fighting hard to
draw with the Ndirande Township based out-fit.
In Mzuzu, Mighty Wanderers beat Kabwafu FC 3-0 to move up the ladder to fourth position with 35 points from 21 games.
