The second week of the 2017 TNM Super League has concluded with PremierBet Wizards at the summit of the 16-team log-table after Dwangwa United squandered the opportunity following a 1-2 defeat by Mzuni FC yesterday.
Wizards lead the 16-team log-table with four points from two games courtesy of a better goal difference as they have the same points as second-placed Mzuzu University (Mzuni) FC.
Misheck Botomani drew first blood barely a minute into the game before Niyikiza Aimable, who is on loan from Nyasa Big Bullets, scored the second as Wizards beat Chitipa United 2-0 at Mulanje Park on Saturday. They also drew 1-1 with Silver Strikers in the first week.
“It’s a good feeling to be at the top of the log-table at this stage,” said Wizards technical director Peter Mponda. “However, we will not sit on our laurels because we know the pressure is on us to prove that we are competing for the title.”
At Chitowe Stadium, Dwangwa, who could have taken the top-seat with six points, failed to use home ground advantage. They are now eighth with three points from two matches.
In another encounter at Dedza Stadium, Robin Ngalande had a man-of-the-match performance yesterday as he scored a brace to help Master Security secure a 2-1 victory over Civil Sporting Club.
Masters are now ninth on the log table with three points from two matches while Civil are at the rock-bottom of the table without point from two matches.
Blantyre United, who started their campaign with a loss, found a solace at Mulanje Park yesterday where they thrashed new recruits Chitipa United 4-0 and ensured that the Northern Region side returned home empty handed after two away losses.
Blantyre United triumphed through Fraston Chisi’s brace and strikes from Sparrow Msowoya and Jimmy Chikulekule. They are fourth on the table with three points after playing two games.
Chitipa, are 14th on the ladder with a single point from three outings. n
