Malawi’s women’s football icon Tabitha Chawinga’s scoring spree for her Chinese Women’s SuperLeague side Jiang Suning was halted on Sunday when she did not score in her team’s 1-0 win over Beijing Phoenix.
Her solace, nevertheless, was that her team registered an eighth-straight win to take their tally to 24 points after their captain Marjun’s strike, made the difference.
Prior to this game, Tabitha had scored in all their seven matches.
“It’s part of the game. Sometimes things just don’t work out.
“What is important is that we got the result we wanted, which keeps us on track to win the title.
“As a player, I need to be realistic and accept that I cannot score in every game. It just doesn’t work that way,” she said.
Tabitha won four awards in her debut season in China last year, including Player of The Year and the golden boot. She scored 17 goals and is targeting 25 this season.
