Central region giants Blue Eagles Sisters and Civonets underlined their credentials as Central Health Lilongwe and District Netball League giants on Sunday when they earned resounding victories to send a warning signal to rookies.
The two out-fits preyed on Boma Stars 37-16 and Green Sisters 29-12 respectively.
In the first game, Civonets squeezed life out of Green Sisters with the likes of Jane Chimaliro and Tina Kamzati being in fore- front of taking control of the business.
Chimaliro, who also feature for Malawi Queens got off to a flying start by notching goals for fun, as Kamzati was Civo’s engine room on the middle of the park.
In another encounter, unstoppable Blue Eagles Sisters was a marvel to watch as they clipped Boma Stars 37-16.
The area 30 cops were strong on the centre where the evergreen Takondwa Lwazi outplayed Boma Stars with the help of Ruth Kaliyenda as goal attacker and Joyce Mvula.
In her remarks Kaliyenda described the game as tough but was delighted to have registered victory in their first game.
“It was a tough game but at the end what matters most is to collect three points. They came hard on us but experience also helped us a lot. Our fans should expect good results from Eagles,” said Kaliyenda.
