The battle for points continued in the TNM Super League on Sunday with victories for Blantyre United, Epac FC, Zomba United, Civo United and Red Lions.
It was a weekend of mixed fortunes for Bullets FC and Moyale failing to make it 6 out of 6 away from home after registering victories on Saturday.
After beating struggling capital city giants Silver Strikers 1 – 0 on Saturday, they were humbled 24 hours later 2 – 1 by Epac FC.
The league’s top goal scorer Ishmael Thindwa increased his tally to 8 with the other goal coming in from Jafali Chande.
Moyale were cut down to size by Zomba United at the Zomba community centre ground.
The soldiers from Kaning’ina beat Mighty Wanderers on Saturday but had a tough time in the old capital as Manase Chiyesa’s lone goal made the difference after 90 minutes of football.
Red Lions proved too good for Azam Tigers with a 3 – 0 drubbing at the Kamuzu stadium.
Kelvin Katema, Viripo Mhango and Sunganani Msiska were all on the score sheet for the soldiers.
Leo Mpulula’s Blantyre United looked good at home against Cobbe when they beat them 2 – 0. Brown Mizeya and Oswald Maonga scored for United.
Civo United were 1 – 0 winners over Embangweni United who had a fruitless weekend in the central region. Embangweni went down 1 – 0 to Mafco on Saturday and Junior Mbetewa’s strike was enough to condemn them.
Despite not playing this weekend, defending champions Escom United are still on top of the TNM log table with 15 points.
