At long last! Nyasa Big Bullets yesterday cast the monkey which has been on their back since the start of the season when they swept aside Civil Sporting Club 3-0 at Kalulu Stadium in Nchalo, Chikwawa.
After a miserable four-game winless streak which was worsened by their failure to score in over 360 minutes, the People’s Team got their heads above water and, by sheer bloody mindedness, hauled themselves out of the mire to send the red army into ecstasy.
Their general secretary (GS) Albert Chigoga said relief was the prevalent emotion after yesterday’s TNM Super League victory over the Civil Servants.
“It has been a miserable ride full of bouts of despair and now we can afford a good sleep without the usual taunts.
“We played extremely well today and had we been sharp enough in front of goal, we could have scored five or six goals. Nevertheless, credit should go to the players, they gave their best shot,” he said.
Collen Nkhulambe ended Bullets’ goal drought midway the first half to give his team a 1-0 lead going to recess.
They went two up after Henry Kabichi’s effort was deflected into the net by Civil’s John Dambuleni in under 10 minutes of the second half before Nkhulambe claimed a brace a few minutes later to make it 3-0.
Bullets now have four points from three games while the Civil Servants have returned to the capital city empty handed having lost to PremierBet Wizards 1-0 on Saturday. They have three points from five games.
At Chitowe Stadium in Dwangwa, Nkhotakota, after going down 3-2 to Mafco FC on Saturday, Azam Tigers recovered to thump Dwangwa United 4-0. Peter Kasonga scored a brace whereas Luka Chima and Precious Phiri scored a goal apiece.

Blue Eagles beat Masters Security 2-0 at Dedza Stadium through goals from captain Micium Mhone and Mphatso Philimoni whereas a lone goal from Lottie Chawinga against Chitipa Unted enabled Red Lions to return from their Northern Region sojourn with four points.
