After defeating MTL Queens last week, Tigresses went on rampage on Saturday when they pruned another giant Diamond to maintain their top position in the OG Issa Southern Region Netball League in a one sided affair at Blantyre Youth Centre.
Tigresses, who are basking comfortably on the summit table with 36 points won by 41-28 baskets.
As usual, despite being tightly marked by Caroline ‘Ayuda’ Ngwira and Towera ‘Tobe’ Vikhumbo, it was the slippery goal shooter Sindi ‘Sniper’ Simutowe who was the toast of the day in notching baskets.
Apart from Simutowe, some of the notable names, who were gladiators for Tiga were Lauren ‘China’ Ngwira, Beatrice Kadango and Grace Mwafulirwa.
Tigress’s assistant coach Charles Mhango praised her troops for maintaining the top slot and vowed not to surrender it.
Mhango attributed their victory to hard working on his ladies and also emphasized that it was a timely revenge to Diamonds, who were responsible in beating them in the Presidential Netball Finals.
“This is a sweet revenge because as you’re aware it was Diamonds who beat us in the finals of the Presidential Cup in Lilongwe. We started with MTL Queens and now its Diamonds meaning we are not turning back in our quest to win the title,” he said.
Diamonds, who were completely tamed by Tigresses lacked composure and the fighting hard spirit.
Sparks on the side of Diamonds were not even there as their reliable players like Jesicca Mazenegera, Shiera Dimba, Bridget Kumwenda could not contain Tigresses pressure.
Diamonds coach Griffin Saenda could not contain his frustrations as he stressed it was a missed opportunity to reduce the gap between them and Tigresses.
