Goal Shooter Sindi ‘Sniper’ Simutowe  led the way from the outset,  coverting 15 from 15 attempts as the Kanjedza township based ladies  raced into a 32-5 lead at the end of the first quarter.

Tigresses coach Peace Kaluwa  was again afforded the luxury of experimenting in the last half, giving one of her youngest players   a run out with the match comfortably won.

“We’re feeling a lot better after that game because we scored more than 100 baskets.  That was a good game and l salute my players for their hardworking spirit,” Kaluwa told Nyasa Times.

Young Professionals captain Mirriam Goodwin said it was a bad day in office, but attributed lack of sponsorship as a big set back to their title ambition.

“If we had sponsorship l think we could have been somewhere. For instance, prior to this game we did not train and we cannot match a team like Tigresses without training,” said Mirriam.

She was however; quick to emphasize that their aim is to finish at least top 8 of the League.
