Eagles end Mafco’s honeymoon: Malawi TNM Super League

Mafco FC’s perfect record in the ongoing TNM Super League came to an end on Kamuzu Day (May 14, 2015) as the soldiers from Salima got arrested at Nankhaka Ground in Area 30, where they dropped their first league points after going down 1-0 to Blue Eagles.

Midfielder Mecium Mhone took the responsibility of handcuffing the soldiers when he connected first time a cross from John Banda after seven minutes.

The Soccer Instructors came breathing fire in the second half in search for an equaliser but poor finishing on the part of their strikers denied them the equaliser.

Striker Saidi Mtekama wasted the visitors’ closest chance midway into the second half when he chose to push the ball inside the D-zone instead of connecting first time after a pass from Paul Phiri.

Coach Stereo Gondwe graciously accepted defeat after the final whistle and congratulated Blue Eagles for collecting the full points.

“We conceded a silly goal and missed some good chances. This is a lesson for us and we will be stronger when we meet Be Forward Wanderers at home on Saturday,” said Gondwe.

His counterpart Deklerk Msakakuona praise his charges for a mission well accomplished.

“It was a difficult game. Mafco had not lost or drawn any game and they came here to protect their reputation as the only team with a 100 percent record. But our boys did what we practiced during training and we have the three points,” said Msakakuona.

Despite the defeat, Mafco still top the league’s standings with 12 points from five games. Eagles are still second with 11 points from the same number of games.

Elsewhere in the capital city, Silver Strikers registered their second win of the campaign after edging Airborne Rangers at Silver Stadium. Green Harawa scored the lone goal after a goalless first half.
