Two former Super League teams Blantyre United and Evirom FC were shown an exit-door in the elite Carlsberg Cup paving the way for Nyasa United and Changalume barracks respectively to progress through to the next level.
Blantyre United also popularly known as ‘Mphembedzu’ were clobbered 6-5 in the penalty shootout, while Evirom were ousted by Changalume Barracks after a 2-1 goal margin.
Despite several attempt to kiss the back of Nyasa United’s net, Blantyre United strikers were too warsteful and left their coach Mc Donald Yobe in disbelief.
On the other side, Nyasa United, which is comprised of veterans were a better side in the last 45 minutes but they also lacked a killer punch upfront.
Both teams had to be separated on penalties, and it was Nyasa United that sailed through.
