Blue Eagles on Sunday showed no mercy in the demolition of rookies Fisd Wizards with a 5-1 thumping in a TNM Super League match at Nankhaka Stadium in Lilongwe.
The cops are still on third position with 47 points from 27 games, three points short of second-placed Mafco.
Charles Ngosi and Wister Phiri scored a brace apiece while Oswald Maonga scored the other goal for Eagles. Under-20 international defender Mark Fodya scored the consolation goal for Wizards.
Wizards have finished their campaign at the bottom of the table with 21 points and their technical director Peter Mponda described their stint in the top-flight league as “a good learning experience.”
At Chitowe ground in Dwangwa, Nkhotakota, Be Forward Wanderers registered their third successive TNM Super League victory after beating Airborne Rangers 3-2 to keep their top-four finish dream on the boil.

The two teams were tied one-all at half time, but the Nomads went on to score two more goals before the hosts reduced the deficit.
“It’s good that we collected all the three points, but we didn’t play well. We lacked seriousness, but the solace is that the confidence is back,” said Wanderers technical director Jack Chamangwana.
The Nomads are still fifth with 42 points, a point short of fourth-placed Silver Strikers. They both have a single game before they wind up the season.
