Blue Eagles six-match unbeaten run came to an end last weekend when they suffered a 1-2 defeat at the hands of Silver Strikers at Silver Stadium in Lilongwe.
However, despite their first TNM Super League loss, the Area 30-based cops still top the 16-team domestic top-flight league with 18 points from seven games—four ahead of Mafco who pipped Red Lions 1-0.
Matheews Sibale and Thuso Paipi scored a goal apiece for Silver whereas Gio Banda pulled one back for Eagles.
Silver are now third with 13 points from seven games.
Defending champions Nyasa Big Bullets are fourth on the log with 12 points from six games following their 2-0 win over Mzuzu University (Mzuni) FC. Bashir Maunde and Henry Kabichi were on target for the People’s Team.
It was a bad outing for the Mzuzu-based students who also lost 2-0 to Azam Tigers on Sunday.
Be Forward Wanderers’ struggles continued when they returned from their sojourn to the North with two points out of a possible six.
They were held to a goalless draw by rookies Karonga United on Sunday. Then they went on to give away a two-goal lead against Moyale Barracks the following day. Isaac ‘Tcheya’ Kaliati and Peter Wadabwa scored for Wanderers while Kuda Muyawa and Lloyd Njaliwa replied for the soldiers.
It was the fifth draw for the Nomads who have only won one game and lost one. They are now on 10th position with eight points.
There were also wins for Wizards and Civo United who beat Max Bullets (2-0) and Epac FC (1-0).
