Ntopwa Super Queens have grabbed the Southern Region Women Football Association (SRWFA) League title on superior goal difference after thrashing bottom-placed Chikwawa Sisters 43-0 at Bangwe Youth Centre in Blantyre on Sunday.
The triumph helped Ntopwa to create a 12-goal gap at the summit of the seven-team league against runners-up and last year’s champions Blantyre Zero, who thumped sixth-positioned YCD Sisters 21-0 in their last game last weekend. Both settled for 30 points but Ntopwa notched 128 against Zero’s 116.
Before last weekend’s encounters that saw Funny Magombo scoring 14 goals for Ntopwa and Sheila Dimba netting six for Zeros, Zero were leading the pack by a 10-goal difference after scoring 95 goals against Ntopwa’s 85.
In the first round, Ntopwa beat Chikwawa 16-0 while Zero triumphed 2-0 against YCD.
“We are happy to have finally won our first league title after playing second fiddle to Zero for years,” said Ntopwa owner Isaac Jomo Osman.
However, although the incredible results of the top-two teams’ last games raised match-fixing speculations among soccer lovers considering the fair score-lines against the respective outfits in their first round meetings, SRWFC fixtures secretary Wilson Ndelemani believes the latest results are normal.
“There is nothing fishy in the outcome of last weekend’s conclusive matches because such score-lines are normal in women football,” he said.
