Bullets stunned by Eagles, Mzuni win over Epac in relegation fight: Malawi TNM Super League

The champions Big Bullets who are fulfilling their remaining fixtures on academic purposes after already defending the title and seemingly invincible were beaten on Sunday by Blue Eagles 3-0 at Nankhaka stadium in Lilongwe in a TNM Super League match.

The Area 30 cops interrogated the champions with three spectacular goals from Gilbert Chirwa, Wister Phiri and John Banda.

The champions came close to taking an early lead  as Jelesi Lufeyo volleyed over the cross bar from a MacPhallen Ngwira’s low cross drive.

Eagles made a reaction forcing Bullets goalkeeper Chimwemwe Kumkwawa to save a power packed 20 metre shot from Chirwa.

In a scrappy first which lacked quality, the two teams were goalless.

In the second half, it was entertaining and the goal provided life to the game.

The hosts opened the score sheet after a long ball from Phiri found Chirwa strategically positioned and headed into the net.

Eagles increased the score line when Banda planted the ball to Phiri who went past defender Sankhani Mkandawire before his thunderbolt hit the back of the net to make it 2-0.

The third goal came from Banda with an assist from Chirwa. They combined superbly for the goal, which sent Nankhaka into raptures.

Bullets had a chance to reduce the arrears through Chiukepo Msowoya whose shot came off the woodwork.

“We were not aggressive enough and we didn’t play with our usual purpose,” Bullets technical director Billy Tewesa said after the match.

Eagles’ coach Declerk Nsakakuona said it was “a massive win” against the champions.

The result has taken Eagles’ tally to 40 points whilst Bullets is still topping the standings with 57 points from 25 games.

Elsewhere, Mzuni FC defeated Epac FC in a relegation battle at Mzuzu stadium.

The students now have moved closer to the safety with 29 points.

Two points from the remaining 3 games will be enough to see the students surviving the chop.

As for Epac, winning all of their remaining two games will be a must if they do not end their sojourn in the elite league.

Osadanda Maule, BB has not trained as a full team, let alone play for some time because of Flames engagements. Blue Eagles have been playing all this time. After all we already captured it. The gap we created at the top is can only get wider not narrower.
