The OG Issa Southern Region Netball League’s (SRNL) treached the climax on Thursday as Diamonds were on rampage as they registered two victories in their matches against Gerald Tasaukadala and Aquaid at Blantyre Youth Centre in the commercial city of Malawi to go top of the table.
Diamonds clipped Gerald Tasaukadala 99-6 baskets in their early kick-off before demolishing Aquaid on the same venue with 135-15 baskets.
The victories means that Diamonds are now basking on the summit table in the OG Issa displacing Complex Tigresses, who had no game.
Featuring their strong squad, which is comprised of Caroline ‘Ayuda’ Ngwira, Towera ‘Tobe’ Vinkhumbo, Jessica Sanudi, Bridget Kumwenda, Diamonds dominated all matches to the delight of their coach Griffin ‘Zagalo’ Saenda, who looked calm and relaxed in both matches.
“Iam proud of my team for their performance, and we will work hard because the battle is still on. The main focus now is on Saturday in our next game against MTL Queens,” said Saenda.
Diamonds will have a tricky assignment as they meet MTL Queens on Saturday at BYC. that is set to decide strong title contenders against Complex Tigresses.
A win will give MTL confidence that they might end a five-year title drought and it also boost chances for Tigresses from clinching their first league title in five years.
Meanwhile, Complex Tigresses coach Peace Chawinga Kalua has intesfied gym for her player’s in order to keep them physically fit.
“We have crucial fixtures, as some games have been fixed in the middle of the week. We feel by going for gym it will give our players to last for more games in a week,” she said.
