Tigresses, Thunder Queens and Kukoma Diamonds have turned Southern Region Rainbow Paints League into a three horses race as the trio are running neck to neck.
Tigresses are ‘temporarily’ leading the race with ten points out of four games played as the league enters into the third week.
Thunder Queens and Kukoma Diamonds are on positions two and three respectively with nine points apiece but they differ in number of baskets as Thunders have 318 baskets against 216 for Diamonds.
Serenity Stars are on the fourth position with six points after collecting maximum points out of two games played.
Zomba based Prison Sisters are on position five with four points after managing to register a win and a draw. The team has so far suffered a single defeat.
Shizaella Queens, Gerald Tasaukadala and Young Professionals are at the bottom of the league after they all failed to register a single win or a draw in the competition.
In an interview with the Malawi News Agency (Mana) on Wednesday Southern Region Netball League General Secretary, Annie Hanjahanja said the title race was so tight such that one cannot predict the outcome.
“We are very much impressed with how the teams are fairing in the league this season. The race is very tight and it is becoming unpredictable; teams which were regarded as under-dogs are doing wonders,” said Hanjahanja.
The battle for the top slot returns at Blantyre Youth Centre on Saturday as Kukoma Diamonds will be playing against Young Professionals while Serenity Sisters will be dating Chilomoni Sisters. Thunder queens will be hosting Prison Sisters.
On Sunday, the focus will be in the old capital city Zomba as Prison Sisters will be playing against Serenity Stars at Cobbe Barracks court.
