With two defeats to England, Malawi Queens hope for win in final match

Malawi Queens hope to test victory in their finals international test series with England  on Wednesday in Birmingham after they lost  61-53 at the Copper Box in their second match  coming from another loss of 66-60 in the first match.

England Roses up against Malawi Queens from London’s Copper Box

The two sides meet in the final match on Wednesday, 29 November in Birmingham.

Malawi fell to an 11-goal deficit in the opening quarter of the first Test but they began brightly on Sunday.

 

Malawi defenders Joanna Kachilika and Loreen Ngwira both received cautions from the umpires before the break as their shooters netted three quick goals before half-time to stay in touch.

Queens got within four goals in the third quarter and Australian-based shooter Mwai Kumwenda set up a tense finale.

With Malawi on the charge, England called on wing-attack Sasha Corbin to steady the ship and her combination with sister Kadeen and Severn Stars’ Cardwell saw England finish strongly.

Both teams prepare for the Commonwealth Games in April.

I have known the Queens do well with a male coach. Nditsutseni ngati ndikunama. Tell me which female Queens coach has broughts smiles to the nation? Just my opinion.

Oscar, you are right. No female coach has done what a male coach has achieved. Mary Waya is caretaker coach to the Queens as is David Unsworth is to Everton Football Club. Everton under the latter has performed poorly and need not only some leadership but also a strong manager, not one who is there on short term basis. David Unsworth’s record as a caretaker after the dismissal of Ronald Koeman has not been good. On the Barclays Premier League table, the team on the bottom. Mary Waya was supposed to be getting the team to another level after a… Read more »
