FC Surestream stayed put at the summit of the Southern Region Football League Premier Division after the weekend games and breathing down their necks are Max Bullets who have moved up to second position.
The streamrolling academy swept aside Luchenza Tea Stars 4-0 on Saturday to take its tally to 47 points from 20 games, two points ahead of Bullets, who have played two games more.
Flames trialist and gifted Under-20 international midfielder Ernest Tambe was the centrepiece of Surestream’s win after claiming a brace while Tony Biasi and Ishmail Chirwa scored a goal each.
Surestream’s technical director Peter Mponda said the win was a relief after their 2-1 loss to Cobbe the previous weekend.
“We were more focused and determined against Luchenza and we deserved to win, but as I said, we still have a long way to go,” said Mponda.
Max Bullets hammered Kabula United 4-1. Ian Zakazaka, Chikondi Mpulula, Chisambiwe Kanyika and Jeffrey Jalasi were on target for Bullets whereas Emmanuel Kakhobwe struck the consolation goal for Kabula.
Cobbe Barracks have now moved a step up to third position after beating Carlsberg Cup losing finalists Zomba United 2-0 on Sunday. Saopa Mpotalinga and Phillip Kisyombe scored for the Zomba-based soldiers who now have 44 points from 21 games.
Bvumbwe Research, who were on bye, have dropped to fourth from second position with 43 points from 20 games while Zomba United are fifth on 42 points from 19 games.
