Only one goal was registered in three matches as the TNM Super League second round rolled into life on Saturday.
Azam Tigers were the only team to collect full points after pipping Moyale Barracks 1-0 at Kalulu Stadium in Nchalo, Chikwawa.
Alex Mkorongo scored the priceless goal for Tigers which was also the first in the second round.
Tigers technical director Robin Alufandika expressed delight at the win.
“The win will definitely boost our morale, it is always good to start on a bright note,” he said.
Following the victory, Tigers have moved up two places to sixth position with 25 points from 16 games whereas Moyale have dropped one place to fifth with 27 points from 16 games.
At Mzuzu Stadium, Mzuzu University (Mzuni) FC held leaders Blue Eagles to a goalless draw. Civo United were also held to a barren draw by Epac FC at Nankhaka Ground in Lilongwe.
Eagles have now gone four points clear at the summit of the 16-team league with 33 points from 16 games whereas Mzuni now occupy the fourth position with 28 points from the same number of games.
Mzuni assistant coach McNebat Kadzuwa described the redult as fair considering that Eagles are the league leaders.
But his Eagles Wilson Chidati attributed the result to the absence of three key players— Maxwell Salambula, Steven Chagoma and Gilbert Chirwa—who were with the Flames.
Epac and Civo also played out a barren draw.
