Striker Vincent Nyangulu was responsible for the Lions’ downfall after claiming a hat-trick to ensure maximum points for the home side, which only last week defeated another military side- Mafco FC at the dreaded Chitowe Stadium in Dwangwa.

Coach Oscar Kaunda praised his charges for playing to instructions.

“The boys followed what we told them prior to the game and at half time. I just hope they will not get carried away by this success,” said Kaunda.

Playing a stone-throw away from Civo, former South African based professional Peter Wadabwa hit four goals as Silver Strikers crashed struggling Chikwawa United 4-0 in another TNM Super League game played at Silver Stadium.

At Chitowe ground visiting Big Bullets came from a goal down to edge Airborne Rangers 2-1 while Moyale Barracks and Mighty Wanderers played a goal-less draw at Mzuzu Stadium.
