Malawi’s netball export Mwawi Kumwenda continues to shine in Australia after another impressive scoring form when her team defeated Geelong Cougars at Patterson River Secondary College on Wednesday night.
Waves won by 54 to 29 baskets. Mwawi scored 50 baskets, representing 88 percent accuracy. Stacey Proctor scored the other four baskets for Waves.
“Mwawi was difficult to shut down. She is improving with every game we play,” said coach Clair Houben.
With the victory, Waves have maintained the top position in the Victorian Netball League (VNL)
“We did turn over the ball a bit and tried to be too adventurous with our passing and our attack was perfect. Every player put up a grand performance. I am glad that with the way we are playing. It will be difficult to stop us,” said Mwawi
Waves began the season with a 53-51 win over Ballarat. Five days later, the Waves dispatched VU Western Lightning at the State Netball Centre.
“The girls just look stronger and fitter than they ever have,” said Houben.
“Mwawi might score the goals, but Stacey feeds her so well, which is her job as a goal-attacker,” she said.
