Big Bullets FC travelled to Mzuzu for a tricky fixture against Moyale Barracks in the TNM Super League barely a week after defeating the Kaning’ina soldiers in the Presidential Cup final and again triumphed.
The task looked to be a very tough one for the ‘People’s Team’ but their players rose to it on the day.
They repeated a 1-0 win in a pulsating match at Mzuzu Stadium on Saturday.
Without their new scoring machine, Gabadini Mhango, Bullets relied on striker Diverson Mlozi to earn them full points with a stunning goal 30 minutes into the game.
Bullets were playing the better football, but the defending of both teams as the game progressed meant there was no way of knowing who would win.
Bullets goalkeeper Vincent Gone saved many would-be goals in the second half to deny Moyale revenge.
But the game was marred when the referee blew his final whistle as he was mobbed by irate Bullets supporters and Moyale players who threatened his safety until Police were called to take him into safety.
Yes the officials had got a big decision wrong, when a Moyale player attacked Bullets striker Mlozi, he showed a yellow card in an incident that deserved marching orders.
On Sunday, Bullets beat Kabwafu 1-2 with a Henry Kabichi goal to earn full maximum points and continue their revival as the country soccer power house.
In the two games, Bullets showed the sort of resilience and mental strength that they have been accused of lacking in recent seasons.
