GOtv Netball Champions League goes into third-round at Blantyre Youth Centre (BYC) this weekend.
It is this round that will probably clear the mist on whether leaders Complex Tigresses, who are five points clear of second-placed Diamonds, with 20 points from 10 games, are determined to maintain their unbeaten run.
This is also the only time for defending champions Diamonds to polish up their record which was tarnished by two consecutive losses to Tigresses in the last two rounds.
With 15 points, Diamonds do not need to lose any game to keep their title defence hopes alive.
But this does not mean third-placed Blue Eagles, who have 13 points, will be mere participants. Their coach Sam Kanyenda said they are ready to prove that they have upped their game to earn their first-ever national glory.
“I am hopeful that we will win all our games this weekend,” said Kanyenda.
Nevertheless, it will be a tall order for fourth-placed Civonets, fifth-positioned MTL Queens and sixth-placed Mafco Sisters, who have six, five and one point respectively, who will be out to fight for better positions.
According to Netball Association of Malawi (NAM) general secretary Carol Bapu, the final-round of the competition, which adopted the Fast5 Netball Series rules, will take place in Lilongwe next week.
