Two giants Thunder Queens and Kukoma Diamonds breathed fire in the Rainbow Paints Southern Region Netball League following their impressive victories against rookies on Saturday.
Thunder Queens, who are on the brink of losing their goal shooter Sherat Kaiche to Alliance Capital showed no mercy to Young Professionals with a 114-22 baskets at Blantyre Youth Centre.
This was a timely victory basing on the fact that last week they also registered another victory against Chitakale in Mulanje.
Since beating Blue Eagles Sisters last year in the Presidential Cup, Thunder Queens graph has risen and they play as a unit.
The former MTL Queens side also nearly shocked Kukoma Diamonds in the League game, as they lost only with not more than five baskets.
Captain Joan Kachilika attributed this form to unity and hardwork.
“We play as a team by avoiding individual play. We have also unity among ourselves plus hardworking spirit,” said Kachilika.
In another encounter, Kukoma Diamonds pruned Chilomoni Sisters 83-24 baskets.
As usual, Diamonds were inspired by players like Sarudzai Gondwe and Jessica Mazengera, who led the slaughtering mission.
Also in top form was their versatile centre Sheila Dimba and Anabel Phiri.
The last game of the day involved Shizaella and Alliance Capital. At the end of the match it was Alliance Capital who came out victors with a 50-26 margin.
Southern Region Netball League general secretary Annie Hanjahanja said so far so good, as teams observe discipline.
“We have not recorded any violence and indiscipline which is a motivating factor to us. Let me commend all the teams for their performances and from the look of things this year’s League will be more competitive,” said Hanjahanja.
She however, appealed to Malawians to start patronizing these games in their large numbers bemoaning low turnout of spectators.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
