Big Bullets continued their title defence with a second consecutive victory on Sunday when the champions defeated TNM Super League rookies Surestream 3-1 in a match played at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre.
The result left Bullets on six points from two games on par with leaders Blue Eagles, Mafco and Red Lions who defeated Airborne Rangers 2-1 in another match.
Eagles, Mafco and the Lions are on six points each.
Bullets right back Pilirani Zonda said the ‘Peoples team’ were “magnificent” during their win against a team coached by the club’s legend, Peter Mponda.
Surestream, who started the season with a 4-2 loss to leaders Blue Eagles last Sunday, started promisingly with a defensive approach in the latest match.
The champions were held 0-0 in the first half but came hard on the new rookies in the second half, with Jaffalie Chande scoring a brace and Mussa Manyenje scoring the other goal.
Sure Stream reduced the arrears through Peter Msowoya.
Msowoya scored on a rebound after Peter Chimayimba’s penalty was saved by Owen Chaima.
Zonda said they are now looking forward into their next game to continue their perfect title defence run.
“Our main focus now is to continue winning matches and finish the season on a high.
“But we won’t get too carried away, it is a big win against Sure Stream, we will take it one game at a time now and try and go unbeaten until the end of the season.
Meanwhile, striker Mussa Manyenje said he was relieved to have finally scored his first goal for the club, this season.
” I need to get more goals,” said Manyenje.
However, Sure Stream were punished for lack of experience despite holding Bullets in the first half.
Their striking force lacked the killer punch but they must be commendable for their fighting hard spirit.
In goals, Alex Makina was brilliant especially in the first half when he tamed several long ranges from the likes of Chiukepo Msowoya.
Coach Peter Mponda said he was not disappointed with his charges m saying they are still getting to terms of the flagship league.
Mponda said they will hit the ground soon dismissing the “whipping boys” tag.
In other games played on Sunday, Kamuzu Barracks defeated Mzuni 1-0 as Epac FC recorded their first 2-1 win when edging out Moyale Barracks.
