The Nomads forward came from the beach in the dying minutes of the second half to win it for the Lali Luban outfit.
The Nomads started fiercely with a high-pressing game and almost took the lead in the early as 3 minutes when Victor Nyirenda was set well only to miss the target with only some inches.
Blue Eagles recovered and finished the first half strongly, with John Soko producing a superb save stop to deny Nyirenda from scoring for the Nomads in the 40th minute of the match.
And, in a second half Blue Eagles coach substituted Charles Nkosi for John Malidadi who combined well with captain John Banda and set Schumaker Kuwali who missed the target with the Nomads goalkeeper Richard Chipuwa already beaten.
A few minutes into the second half Linje could have beaten Blue Eagles goalkeeper Soko but his shot was well saved by Soko.
