Wanderers, Ekwendeni, Silver in FDH Bank Cup last 8

Be Forward Wanderers on Saturday afternoon registered the biggest win in the FDH Bank Cup round of 16 after beating Chitipa United 4-0 to book their last eight slot.

Elsewhere, Silver Strikers and Ekwendeni Hammers also made it to quarterfinals after beating Moyale Barracks 2-0 and Wanderers Reserve 1-0 respectively.

At the Kamuzu Stadium striker Vincent Nyangulu scored a hattrick to inspire the Nomads to a comfort win over Chitipa United. Peter Wadabwa scored the other goal for the Lali Lubani boys.

In Lilongwe, Frank Banda gave Silver Strikers the lead in the 27th minute from the sport kick following a handball by a Moyale defender. Duncain Nyoni doubled the lead in the 49th minute with a solo goal to send the bankers to the next round.

At the Mzuzu Stadium, Ekwendeni United needed a late winner from veteran defender Harry Nyirenda to overcome stubborn Wanderers Reserve.

The match seemed to be heading for post-match penalties as the two sides were tied at 0-0 with four minutes to full time before Nyirenda headed in the winner.

The three teams have joined Ntopwa, Mafco and Rumphi United who booked their quarterfinal slots on Friday.

The round of 16 action will wrap up on Sunday as Nyasa Big Bullets host Mighty Tigers at the Kamuzu Stadium while Blue Eagles welcome Dedza Young Soccer at Nankhaka Stadium.
