Wanderers beat Dedza Young Soccer 3-0 at Kalulu Stadium to collect three points and move to the top with 21 points. They have a game in hand as they have played nine while Bullets have played 10 matches and have 20 points.

Defending champions were not in top form as the Area 30 Cops were first to launch the attack in when Micium Mhone found space outside Bullets box, but his shot went wide.

Blue Eagles then were on top form with John Banda brilliantly turning the ‘People’s team’ defence on back foot and in the 15th minute had his left-footed attempt went across the face of Vincent Gona in goal.

The two teams went for a break in a stalemate.

Eagles took the lead in the 55th minute when Schumaker Kuwali met John Banda’s cross with a brilliant volley to make it 1-0 after Bullets left-back Yamikani Fodya o failed to retain a ball after pushing into Eagles’ half.

Bullets accelerated their gear in the 75th minute when Jaffalie Chande’s strike narrowly went over the bar.

On 77th minutes, Dalitso Sailesi smartly played Mussa Manyenje through from the left flank but the Bullets striker could not hit the target.

Manyenje should have done better in the 86th minute as Bullets continued to push forward but his left-footed effort could not trouble John Soko as it went over the bar.

Veteran Fischer Kondowe then threatened Soko with long range shot from outside the box but could not found the net.

The champions grabbed the equalizer through Chiukepo Msowoya’s penalty after Chande was brought down inside the forbidden area.

The two sides settled for a draw and shared a point each.

Bullets team manager Billy Tewesa said they were disappointed with the draw but expressed optimism that they will reclaim the top spot.

“We should have won the game but our strikers failed to utilize the goal scoring opportunities. We will get back to the top soon,” said Tewesa.

Blue Eagles coach Deklek Nsakakuwona said it was sad that his charges lost the lead late in the game but expressed delight with the creditable point.

“We were on the verge of claiming full points and then conceded the penalty. But we’re happy we secured a point against a good side who were playing at home,” said Nsakakuwona.

After collecting a point away, Blue Eagles are still on third spot with 17 points while Silver Strikers, who were shocked by a 1-0 defeat to EPAC FC in Sunday’s third league game, come fourth. Azam Tigers and MAFCO FC share 14 points apiece but the former come fifth with a goal difference advantage.

In Nchalo, Mighty Be Forward Wanderers were on a serious business as they went on to prune Dedza Young Soccer 3-0.

The Nomads are now basking on the summit table with 21 points.
