At Mzuzu Stadium, the match was decided through post-match penalties.

After a barren first half, Fodya broke the deadlock, putting Silver ahead from a free-kick in the 61st minute of the match, beating goalkeeper Harawa.

However, veteran striker Simkonda pulled Moyale level when he controlled a pass from Magaga before firing into the net beyond Thom.

Silver were without Chimwemwe Idana, Patrick Macheso and Emmanuel Kaunga due to injury.

At Balaka Stadium, Patrick Mwaungulu, Nickson Nyasulu and Hassan Kajoke were on target for Bullets.
