Jaffali Chande opened the scoring sheet with a header from Kamwendo’s corner kick, while Ishamel Thindwa also registered his name on the scoring board.

The Nomads are on seventh position with 28 points from 17 games and 7 points from League leaders Blue Eagles, who have played 18 games.

The Lali Lubani Road boys, who drew 0-0 against the Crocodiles from Karonga in the first round in Mzuzu kicked-off the game brightly, bombarding the visitors with balls into the box and seeing Thindwa fire narrowly wide.

Thindwa partnering Jabulani Linje was busier in his own area and twice had to hack clear.

However, it was Jaffali Chande, who got more involved at the other end of the pitch as the half progressed.

He provided the flick for Linje to burst into the area and bring a reflex save from  Karonga keeper, then ran clear himself to force another fine stop.

Then came Joseph Kamwendo first faux pas, which saw him send a bullet header which went wide.

Karonga gate was opened with a Chande’s header from Joseph Kamwendo’s well taken corner kick.

On the dot of the first 45 minutes, Kamwendo’s powerful spot-kick, from a penalty awarded when Chande was brought down inside the box made the two teams separated on 2 goals before recess time.

In the second half, the Nomads continued with their carpet football from the back where Harry Nyirenda and Kondwani Lufeyo gelled well to midfield where Kamwendo, Manyozo and Rafiq Namwera were unstoppable.

Karonga United, who had only captain Hygine Mwendepeka outstanding, conceded the third goal when Kamwendo tapped in a Stanely Sanudi’s grasscutter cross from the right flank.

Then Ishamel Thindwa nailed the last nail on the visitor’s coffin with a fine header from a Kamwendo’s free kick.

The Nomads missed the services of their prolific striker Peter Wadabwa, who was serving two yellow cards and Jimmy Zakazaka due to a harm string injury.

Their next assignment is against Mafco FC and Dwangwa United at Chitowe Stadium
