Linda Kasenda on Sunday inspired Skippers FC to their first Presidential Initiative on Sports (PIS) Women Football Cup win at Civo Stadium in Lilongwe.
Kasenda scored four goals in the 5-0 triumph over Zomba City Queens to emerge national champions.
She also retained the Golden Boot Award that saw her pocketing K50 000 (about $125).
Kasenda, who attributed the success to team work, scored 29 goals in the competition.
The finals curtain-raised men’s finals between Silver Strikers and Mafco, which the Soldiers won 9-8 on penalties.
At half-time, Skippers were leading 2-0 following goals from Bridget Mkudzilire and Kasenda.
In the second-half, the game turned into a Kasenda show as she netted a hat-trick.
Despite Kasenda’s magic, defender Towera Vinkhumbo, who also plays for Escom Sisters netball team, mesmerised fans with her defending skills which reminded people of former Flames skipper Peter Mponda’s hey days.
Kasenda was also instrumental in Saturday’s semi-final game against Blantyre Zero.
Skippers coach Lyton Mangani described their game against Blantyre Zero as the toughest in the race.
“We are here to stay and I would like to inform all the teams that Skippers will grab all the trophies,” said Mangani.
