The Queens players doing some pep-talk

The Queens started the game on a high note leading 12-9 in the first quarter but faced strong resistance in the secondd quarter which ended in a 24 all stalemate.

They, however, put up an extra gear in the third quarter to regain the lead by 39-34 baskets before completing their victory in the last
quarter.

The Zambia match was the fourth encounter for the Queens at this year’s tournamen where they have so far registered three wins out of four.

They beat Zimbwabwe 55-45 in the opening match before going down to hosts and defending champions ‘The She Cranes’ of Uganda 66-43.

They later recovered well and managed to convisingly beat Namibia 64-35 before facing Zambia.

The Queens return to action Thursday as they face Botswana.

In another match played on Wednesday, Uganda beat Zimbabwe 61-45.

Meanwhile, Netball Association of Malawi (NAM) General Secretary Carol Bapu has expressed confidence that the Queens will register a positive result against Botswana.

The Queens need to pray that Uganda loses in their final match and they win to compete for the top position.
