Champions Nyasa Big yesterday turned Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre into a slaughter house when they thrashed Civil Sporting Club 6-0 in the TNM Super League.
Hassan Kajoke’s brace and a goal apiece from Chiukepo Msowoya, Precious Sambani, Patrick Phiri and Righteous Banda helped the People’s Team move four places up to second on the 16-team log table with 10 points from four matches.
The result also meant that the Civil Servants returned to their Lilongwe base empty-handed as this was their second consecutive defeat following their 1-0 loss to Mighty Tigers at Mulanje Park on Saturday.
Prior to their two consecutive defeats, Civil Sporting had a 100 percent winning record following three straight victories. They have now dropped by a step to fourth position with nine points from five games.
The development also means that Bullets are yet to lose a Super League match to the Civil Servants in six years as they last tasted defeat in the first round of the 2013 season with a 1-0 beating.
Yesterday, Kajoke drew first blood in the very first minute even before the fans had the feel of the action when he headed home Msowoya’s through ball.
Msowoya himself got on the score-sheet in the 17th minute when man-of-the-match Gomezgani Chirwa overlapped on the right flank before providing a pass that oozed class and Msowoya did the rest to perfection.
Left-back Precious Sambani netted the third in his debut with a header in the 37th minute before Kajoke claimed a brace a minute later with a simple tap-in.
Bullets were already in the comfort zone going into recess with a 4-0 lead.
In the second half, Civil seemed an improved side both in the attack and defence, but hell broke loose for them in the 61st minute as Phiri hammered home the fifth after being set up by Chirwa.
Banda closed the score-sheet against his former team with a header nine minutes to full time.
Bullets team manager James Chilapondwa said: “We are happy that our players played according to instructions. It feels great to win by such an incredible margin.”
On the other hand, a dejected Civil Sporting coach Franco Ndawa said: “We did not play today. We will go back to the drawing board to come back stronger in our next game.”
Three other matches played yesterday ended in draws. Be Forward Wanderers settled for a goalless draw against Savenda Chitipa United at Karonga Stadium so did Masters Security and Silver Strikers at Dedza Stadium.
The Nomads have moved a place up to eighth with seven points from four matches. Chitipa are 11th with six points from six games.
Silver are seventh with eight points from five games while Masters are 10th with six points from four games.
At Chitowe Stadium in Dwangwa, Nkhotakota rookies Mlatho Mponela held Dwangwa United to a one-all draw. n
