Mwalweni sent out a makeshift side depleted by departures and suspensions – but even this cannot excuse the manner in which they were outclassed in all parts of the pitch and swept aside with such ease by the Kau-Kau boys.

Bright Munthali was Tigers inspiration with four goals of his Kau-Kau   career.

Karonga United strike late in the second half-represented no measure of consolation for a dispirited, broken Crocodiles of Karonga.

For Karonga it was a performance, or lack of one, that proved the folly of his summer of transfer inaction.

This result underscores the gulf that has opened up between Tigers  and  Karonga and Mwalweni  will now seek to address the weaknesses in his squad before their next assignment against Civo United in Mzuzu.

Gerald Phiri’s  faith in the team that lost 2-1 last week to Mafco   was rewarded with another thrilling attack-minded performance.

Karonga’s  uncertainty was partly explained by the unfamiliar make-up of their team, but the flaws were swiftly exposed by the manner in which Tigers  took the lead.

Tigers corner kick from Yamikani Chester   was inventive but Karonga’s   failure to react was ominous for what lay ahead, allowing Munthali  to head past Loyld Munthali.

And Tigers  ensured  the visitors were punished heavily as Munthali   added the second after 6  minutes. The pint-sized striker  found space just outside the area and curled a perfect finish high beyond  Karonga keeper.

It made little difference amid the carnage of the second half as Karonga  were torn apart amid a torrent of goals, near misses and saves from the desperately exposed Munthali.

It barely seemed possible for matters to get worse for Karonga, but the agony increased when  Tigers pumped in more goals up to 7 goals.

Kondwani Mwalweni and his troops  cut a despairing figure as they walked back to the dressing room at the final whistle after one of the darkest days of  their  careers.

Karonga’s humiliation comes, 24 hours after they were also clobbered 4-0 by Be Forward Wanderers.

Their next assignment is against Civo United in Mzuzu.

In another encounter, Premier Bet Wizards piled up more pressure to Max Bullets with a 2-1 victory at Mpira Village Stadium.
