Week 11 of the TNM Super League produced some interesting results but the talking points were from Kamuzu Stadium where Be Forward Wanderers exorcised home ground demons with a 3-1 victory over Red Lions courtesy of a Peter Wadabwa hat trick while Silver Striker ascended to the top of the log table after a same score against Moyale Barracks at Silver Stadium.
Binwell Katinji’s brace and a goal from Sam Gunda were enough for the bankers while Moyale Barracks’ Kuda Muyaba scored the consolation.
The bankers now have 23 points, one above Blue Eagles who could only manage a 1-1 draw against Mzuzu University (Mzuni) FC.
At Kamuzu Stadium, after going three games without a home victory, Wanderers were anxious to make sure they collect maximum points and they did it in style outsmarting the Lions.
With memories still fresh on how the Zomba-based soldiers managed to pull three goals up in their 3-4 loss to Wanderers in Presidential Cup, the Nomads this time gave no room for the soldiers to even sniff a come-back in the fairy patronised match.
In-form striker Peter Wadabwa gave the Nomads a lead late in first half before adding two more goals in a space of five minutes soon after recess.
The soldiers pulled one back through striker Kumbukani Mwambene, but that was all they could do in a lopsided match.
Wanderers coach Eddington Ng’onamo praised his charges for the first win at home.
“We could have won with more than three goals. But the good thing is we have won today and that should be an indication of good things to come. We just have to keep on winning the remaining games because we are not on a good position,” he said.
Wanderers are still on position 11.
Lions assistant coach Prichard Mwanza blamed the defence for the loss.
“Our defence was not good enough more especially in the second half. Our opponents utilised chances they created,” he said. n
