Impressive schoolboy Divarson Mlozi on Sunday scored two goals to help his side collect three points against Lilongwe based soldiers Kamuzu Barracks (KB).
Bullets started the game on a high note with some nice interchanging of passes from Samson Chonde, Douglas Chirambo and former Flames international Fischer Kondowe who was also voted man of the match.
The home side struggled to get rhythm as they were playing under intense pressure from the visiting Bullets.
Kamuzu Barracks registered more scoring chances and they have to blame their striking force comprising of World Nkuliwa and Joel Chipofya for being wasteful.
One minute after recess, Chimango Kaira opened the score sheet when he blasted into the net from inside the box.
Two minutes later, Mlozi headed in the second goal through a header after K.B keeper Victor Nangwale fumbled a Samson Chande’s long range strike.
Mlozi was on target again in the 64th minute when he beautifully put the ball on his chest before producing a thunderbolt beating helpless Nangwale.
Both teams made a number of substitutions.
Kamuzu Barracks introduced Benjamin Issa, Gift M’bwana and Junior Malunga but never served the situation.
On the other hand Bullets rested Samson Chonde, Fischer Kondowe and injured Mlozi for Dalitso Sailesi Henry Kabichi and Blessings Kawonga.
Junior Maloya scored one for the soldiers in the 85th minute but it was disallowed for an offside.
Speaking in an interview after the match, Bullets coach Edington Ng’onamo was in cloud nine.
“I am very happy with the win and I thank the boys for the impressive performance,” said Ng’onamo.
He however admitted that his charges struggled to tick in the first half more especially upfront where he featured the trio of Gabadinho Mhango, Divarsom Mlozi and veteran Heston Munthali.
“We were lacking coordination upfront because we haven’t been training with the team as you know he is doing his studies-at the Natural Resources College.”
Finally the Bullets mentor saluted the central region Bullets supporters who thronged into Civo stadium for their vocal support.
His opposite number Kenwood Nkhoma blamed his charges for losing concentration which resulted into conceding two goals in a space of three minutes.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
