Battle for points in the in the OG Issa Southern Region Netball League (SRNL)continues to get tougher every week as teams continue to struggle for points and Zomba-based Prison Sisters pulled a surprise 44-42 triumph over their opponents MTL Queens at Blantyre Youth Centre (BYC) on Saturday.
The Zomba side was inspired by Sylvia Malenga Mtetemera and Esther Nkhoma, formerly of MTL to secure a historic win.
Prison Sisters led 12-10 in the first quarter, but trailed 15-17 at half-time before fighting back to a 30-29 lead in the third quarter.
Pemphelani Mtalika, coach for Prison Sisters, said the players executed the game plan so well.
“It’s fantastic to win against one of the top-three giants in the league,” said Mtalika.
MTL Queens and Prison now tie on 21 points, but the Queens have better basket difference and have played eight matches, a game less than the Sisters.
There were easy wins for defending champions Complex Tigress and Diamonds sisters as they thumped Polytechnic 104-16 to maintain their stand on top of the ladder with 21 points from seven straight wins. Diamonds remain second with the same points and number of games following a 106-13 triumph over Aquaid Queens.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
