Epac were in their best form yesterday at Mzuzu Stadium as they held Moyale Barracks to a goalless draw in one of the most epic Super League clashes this season.
Epac were going into this game after an impressive 1 all draw with Wanderers last week whereas Moyale Barracks were coming from a 2-1 win over Azam Tigers last Sunday.
The match started on a high intensity as both Moyale Barracks and Epac fc were in search for an early opener in the first half.
But it was Epac fc who started dominating possession as Mude Geoffrey and Lanken Mwale combined well and worked tirelesly in the opening 30 minutes of the game.
Moyale Barracks also had good scoring chances through their hit man Khuda Muyaba who was set well a number of times but he kept on missing the target.
In the dying minutes of the first half, both teams’ efforts could have paid off as they had golden opportunities to take the lead but they all lacked the scoring composure and the first half ended 0-0.
5 minutes into the second half, Moyale Barracks started controlling the game and started giving pressure to Epac defence as they were still in search for the opening goal of the match but Epac defended well.
After a few minutes, Epac fc Munde and Mwale started pressurising the Moyale Barracks defence headed by captain Lovemore Mitengo.
In the dying minutes Moyale Barracks could have scored as they kept on pressurising the Epac defence but Josaya’s boys defended jealously and the game ended in a goalless draw.
The draw has moved Moyale Barracks to 33 points from 26 games and they are now tied up on points with the Nomads but they are now ranked 7th on the log table with a good goal difference than the Nomads.
The result has also left Epac on 14th on the log and tomorrow they will be facing Mzuni fc at the Mzuzu stadium.
