After going down 1-0 at Civo United on Saturday, October 27, 2012, Moyale Barracks vented their anger on Epac, thrashing the Lilongwe side, alias Njenjete 3-0 in a TNM Super League match played at Silver Stadium in Lilongwe.
Playing a much improved game compared to the previous day, the visiting soldiers from Kaning’ina opened the score sheet in the 37th minute through Gastin Simkonda and were two up three minutes into the second half- courtesy of a Steven Mkandawire connection of a Simkonda
Epac’s efforts to stage a dramatic fight back suffered a knock in the 25th minute, when their midfield star Ishmael Thindwa was givern marching orders by Lilongwe based referee Duncan Lengani for an unprofessional tackle on a Moyale player.
Taking advantage of the numerical representation, the soldiers went three up in the 29th minute after Mphatso Mhone had made a solo run from the centre to beat goalkeeper Jailosi Kapalamula in a one-on-one situation.
Coach Abbas Makawa felt his charges were underrating Moyale after watching them fall 1-0 at Civo the previous day.
“We had good chances in the first 15 minutes but we messed up the opportunities and allowed Moyale to settle down and score. May be the boys were complacent after watching Moyale lose against Civo yesterday,” said Makawa.
Nicholas Mhango for Moyale saluted his boys for putting up a gallant fight: “We had a talk with the players after yesterday’s loss. We told them that we should not die twice and they worked hard today. We were excellent in all departments from goal keeping up to the striking force,” said Mhango.
