Silver, Moyale, Karonga and Ntopwa in home wins


The 2019 Pokopoko TNM Super League produced four wins for all home teams as Silver Strikers beat their city rivals Civil Sporting Club 2-1, Karonga United also edged Masters Security by the same margin as did Moyale Barracks against Mighty Tigers while Ntopwa thrashed Dwangwa 3-0.

The Bankers hosted the resilient Civil at Silver Stadium and dominated the match before Ghananian Mike Tetteh scored the opener.

Duncan Nyoni, straight from national team’s duties in South Africa made it into the first eleven for the Bankers and proved that coach Young Chimodzi did not err to include him in the squad as his freekick gave the home-side an advantage over the Civil servants who scored a consolation through Fletcher Bandawe.

The win pushed Silver to third place in the league with eleven points from six games.

After an outstanding performance on Saturday against Chitipa United, Masters Security failed to replicate the same as they went down to Karonga United at the same venue.

Karonga scored first through Misheck Selemani before the visitors levelled through Amadu Makawa.

Chrispin Mhangaga however denied the security personnel the opportunity to return home with four or maximum points as he netted the second one for the Karonga crocodiles to help his team move to position 10 on the log table with nine points from seven games.

At Mzuzu Stadium Moyale Barracks survived the Tigers' scare as they snatched a late win to find themselves on position nine from five games.

Tigers took an early lead through Chikaiko Batson before Gastin Simkhonda equalised and former Mzuni Star Wacheta Mwenifumbo sealed it all with a second goal.

From nine games played, Tigers however remain top of the league with a point ahead of second-placed Kamuzu Barracks.

Ntopwa taking on whipping boys Dwangwa

Elsewhere in Blantyre, debutants Ntopwa United registered their second win in the league after thrashing Dwangwa United to move to 12th place on the log table with seven points from seven games.

The Leo Mpulula-led side sent the ball into the net thrice courtesy of Mphatso Magaleta, Josaya Duwa and Levison Makoko.

Dwangwa return home to Nkhotakota empty handed having lost 5-0 to Be Forward Wanderers on Saturday.
