Zomba based military side Red Lions on Sunday thumped struggling Lilongwe based police outfit Blue Eagles 3-0 to go top of the elite
TNM Super League in a match played at Balaka Stadium.
The Bokosi brothers Innocent and Royal scored a goal each in each half while Matthews Simbeyi scored the other goal.
With the win, the soldiers have gone top of the league to the delight of their coach Prichard Mwansa.
“I can say the team is in a good shape since we haven’t yet tasted any defeat. Blue Eagles is a good side but they are just been unlucky but all in all, I thank the boys for a job well done” said Mwansa.
“We will make sure that we keep focused to maintain our current form in the next coming fixtures” said Mwansa.
