Civonets have displaced defending champions Blue Eagles Sisters from the top in the Lilongwe and Districts Netball League (LDNL).
Civonets, who have 30 points from 16 games, collected maximum points on Sunday after they beat Green Sisters 80-8 and Ocasor 85-5 at Kamuzu Institute for Sports (KIS).
Eagles Sisters, who have played 14 games, trail with a two-point gap. On Sunday, they beat Splash Queens 80-23 at Area 23 Police Court.
Roseline Zakeyu was instrumental in the first-quarter, which they led 24-5, as she posted highest baskets, 18, before being substituted in the second quarter by Mary Banya.
In the third-quarter, Eagles threw back Zakeyu and rested Nyirenda. Cecilia Mtukule was also introduced for Banya.
They combined well with centre Takondwa Bonzo Lwazi as they kept the Queens under siege.
In the last-quarter, Splash displayed splendid performance to the surprise of the fans.
Charity Zulu was the centre of attraction with her long-range scores. Emily Tembo also had a grand game for the Queens.
Splash coach Steven Imurani had positive eye on the results.
“We have a bright future in netball as evidenced by the performance. The girls are young and they played well. They were playing with a big team and experience was an advantage to our opponents,” said Imurani
LDNL general secretary Zachariah Kasakula has warned teams that still have affiliation balances that they risk their points being forfeited.
