It did not took time for the game to warm up as Kabwafu put the Nyasa Bullets fans through a nervy ride in the opening minutes as they dominated possession.

However, but Bullets held on to seal the last slot remaining in the semi-finals.

In form Kabwafu goalkeeper Edson Phiri, who made a crucial save from Muhammed Sulumba’s shot, could not tame from man-of-the-match Henry Kabichi’s cross in the 22nd minute for the opener.

Five minutes later Kabichi provided the assist for defender-cum-midfielder Bashir Maunde to connect home.

Chiukepo registered his name in the score sheet to make it 3-0 through a penalty kick in the 45th minute after Pilirani Mzonda was fouled in the box by Kabwafu defender Christopher Njikho.

The Bullets skipper completed a brace in the 79th minute  when he connected home a cross from Zonda.

Chiukepo might even have increased the advantage moments later but fired narrowly wide from distance.

Meanwhile, Bullets have set up a fixture with  Mafco who made it to the semi-finals after beating neighbours Dwangwa United in the quarter-final.

In another semi-finals, Mighty Be Forward Wanderers will face Moyale Barracks who beat Epac FC 2-1 to qualify for the semi-finals.

The semi-finals will be played on July 2 and 3 while the final is scheduled for July 16.
