A brace for veteran strike Chiukepo ‘Yabuku’ Msowoya in the first half  and a debutante goal for new kid on the block,  Precious Phiri formerly of Azam Tigers.

The FAM Charity Shield which was introduced in 2016 has been dominated  by the  People’s team when they beat Be Forward Wanderers and Kamuzu Barracks (KB).

The 2018 Shield format changed where four teams battled it out for honours and had defending kings, Bullets, Wanderers,  KB and Silver.

Bullets beat determined Kamuzu Barracks 2-1 on Saturday while Silver Strikers humbled Wanderers 2-0 for the final show down.

Third play off Kamuzu Barracks stun Wanderers with a 1-0 win with Diouf Simaone’s strike in the 64th minute.

The Bullets- Silver game brought the best of man of the match, Chimango ‘BlackBerry’ Kayira and Msowoya’s scoring spree.

Bullets fans went into jubilation just five minutes from kick off when Msowoya nodded home Yamikani Fodya’s corner kick.

Msowoya claimed his second for the day in the 43rd minutes when he scored from close after being put through by Bright Bweke Munthali leaving Silver’s custodian Brighton Munthali motionless.

Bullets central mildfield combination of  Kayira and Nelson Kangunje outsmarted Silver duo of Young Chimodzi jnr and Timothy Chitedze.

The two teams went to dressing room for a break with Bullets in 2-0 lead.

The second half saw Silver coming with new ideas after they brought four new fresh legs and they played attacking football but Mphatso Phillimon and Deco Nyemera failed to unlock Bullets defence marshaled by Sankhani Nyirenda.

As ganyu faithful and Silver supporter were hoping for an equaliser, Bullets came in with a third in the 59th minute when Precious Phiri headed in Fodya’s curved corner kick.

With 10 minutes to time, Silver’s  Nyemera could have got a consolation goal but his effort was brilliantly saved by Bullets keeper, Rabson Chienda.

The remaining minutes Bullets were on the class of their own with one touch football which was put on display to the delight of their fans.

Bullets will always keep winning this shield regardless of who the opponent is. I really craved for a Bullets-Wanderers match because the Wanderers fans were too vocal as if they’ve already beaten Silver. The most pity thing is that Wanderers even failed to embrace the third place. Haha manyaka atimuwa season into ndiye aziona zenizeni n adziwa kuti Maule ndi akatundu omanga ndi dzisulo!!!!!! Ana ang’ono kumacita matama/ana ang’ono kumacita matama!!!!!! Hiya odi uko maule akudutsa nyerere zonse zilowe kuuuna!!¡!!!!!!!¡
