Mighty Be Forward Wanderers were crowned champions on Saturday after beating Masters Security FC to clinch their domestic crown with a game to spare after a decade’s drought.
The game seemed to be a 50-50 affair in the opening 15 minutes but the Nomads started to have an upper hand after scoring their opening goal in the 18th minute through Peter Wadabwa who later doubled the scores seven minutes later.
Foster Namwera increased the misery towards visiting Masters when he scored the third goal all the opening three goals for the nomads were scored from the header.
First half endied 3-0 with the Nomads dominating the proceedings.
In the second half, Wanderers started on a relaxing mode and no wonder they ended up conceding a goal with only eight minutes after recess.
Patience Kalumo scored the consolation goal from the spot kick after Masters were awarded a penalty following a hand ball from Harry Nyirenda in the penalty box.
The Nomads then woke up and started to launch a number of fierce attacks.
Esau Kanyenda scored the fourth and last goal of the match when he sloted the ball home from close range following an excellent interchange of passes from Kaziputa and Sanudi on the left flank
resulting into a goal mouth scramble.
Mike Kaziputa nearly punished the Masters further but his long range 30 meter drive missed the target by a whisker.
There was wild celebration after the referee blew the final whistle to mark the end of the match.
