Blantyre Zero prolific striker Temwa Chawinga scored 29 goals in three matches in the Southern Region Women Football Association (SRWFA) League.
The 16-year-old increased her tally from 16 goals last weekend when she planted in 13 goals as Zero whitewashed their hosts, Sitima Sisters, 20-0 to remain unshaken at the summit of the eight-team log table.
This means the younger sister to Sweden-based Malawi women football export Tabitha, is 17 goals ahead of second leading scorer and team-mate Mary Chavinda, who added four goals to Zero’s triumph to take her count to 12 goals.
Memory Ntaja, who scored a brace to help Ntopwa Super Girls thrash Balaka Sisters 5-0 at Bangwe Youth Centre on Sunday, is third on the top scorers’ ladder with seven goals.
“It is my wish to reclaim the golden boot award and make history as a woman footballer who scored the most goals within a season in the country,” said Chawinga.
“I set 50 goals as my target, but with the barrage of goals I have scored in three games so far, I feel like even going beyond that mark as we have remained with four games to play.”
Meanwhile, according to SRWFA fixtures secretary Wilson Ndelemani, Zero are dictating the affairs at the summit of the log-table on better goal difference after tying on nine points with second-placed Ntopwa.
“Zero have a goal difference of 50 goals against Ntopwa’s 14. However, both teams are the only sides yet to concede a goal in the league so far,” he said.
Next Saturday, at Mpira Stadium in Chiwembe, Zero will take on Evirom Sisters, who beat Hotspur 7-0 last weekend, while Ntopwa and Hotspur will be up against Bangwe and Balaka, respectively. n
