MTL Queens had a fruitless trip to the capital city Lilongwe in the GOtv Netball Champions League as they failed to register any victory in their encounters.
In their first game , MTL Queens drew 34-34 against Bingu Tigresses, in a match which they have all the reasons to blame the umpire who blew the whistle to mark the end of the game when they were on a dot to notch the winning basket.
Led by their vastly experienced green shooter Mary ‘Atcheya’ Waya, MTL were a marvel to watch as they ruled the first quarter with 10-8 baskets before a 16-16 neck to neck result in the second quarter.
The tempo of the game changed in the third quarter as Tigresses through their slippery shooter Sindi Simutowe and Linda Magombo were unstoppable with a 26-21 victory.

This was Civo’s first victory since the inception of the GOtv Challenge.
The Blantyre based giants kicked-off the match on a high note as they led in three quarters 11-7, 20-18,30-29 before Civo accelerated their gear in the last quarter with the vocal support from the home fans.
