A goal in each half saw the ‘Peoples team’ clinch the Carlsberg Cup through Victor Limbani and Mussa Manyenje goals.

The young chaps from the old capital city kicked off the match on a promising note but they lacked experience.

Their woes continued when the only experienced player Charles Kalaile limped off the field of play after a knee injury.

The absence of Kalaile exposed Zomba further as Bullets enjoyed most of the ball possesion.

Bullets drew first blood after 30 minutes when  rose to head home Fischer Kondowe’s fabulous corner-kick.

Zomba United made things difficult for themselves when they resorted into defensive system.

However, frustrations on the part of Zomba was exposed when one of their players Stanely Duwe was shown marching orders after an agriculture tacklel on a Bullets player.

Six into second half, Mussa Manyenje put Bullets to a 2-0 lead and certainly to cup winners.

Bullets mounted a strong defence denying Zomba an equalizer.

Biafra stands rose in an electric mood after the last whistle when the red army chanted, “Boyi Puna paseli pa Zomba eeee Boyi Puna ndatopa ndinyamuleni eee.”

Bullets coach Elia Kananji hailed his charges for playing according to instructions.

“We have unmatched quality  which saw us win the trophy,” said Kananji.

“We thank God that we have won this cup,” he added.

Zomba United coach Alinafe Noel Gobede said” Bullets deserved to win.”

Bullets got the ultimate K9 million ($24 000) prize plus the trophy while Zomba got a K4 million ($11000) runners-up prize as their consolation.
