Chiukepo Msowoya

Two second half goals from Chiukepo Msowoya were enough for Malawi champions, Big Bullets to beat Fisd Wizards 2-0 at Kamuzu Stadium on Wednesday afternoon and add their tally to 63 points.

The match started on an impressive note as both Big Bullets and Fisd Wizards were searching for an early goal but they failed to unlock each other in the opening minutes.

However, it was Peter Mponda’s side who dominated the entire first half as they were exchanging good passes from the centre of the pitch and they had a couple of chances to take the lead though their strikers were lacking the killer punch.

Fisd Wizards could have taken the lead through Mike Mkwate who put the ball into the Big Bullets net with an excellent finish only to be denied by the linesman for an offside.

The league leaders also had a couple of chances through Yamikani Fodya, Chiukepo Msowoya, Amos Khamula and Jaffali Chande but Brighton Munthali denied the Bullets strikers on several occassion. The first half ended in a goalless draw.

Come second half, rains started to fall but Bullets dominated possession and they were attacking the Fisd Wizards goal dangerously. Chiukepo Msowoya then put the hosts ahead 24 minutes into the second half after he headed in a well driven cross from Ian Chinyama to make it 1-0.

After that goal, Peter Mponda’s side started dominating much of the possession as they were looking for an equalising goal. Mike Mkwate and Ernest Tambe combined well in attack but the Bullets keeper produced some excellent saves to deny Fisd from equalising.

Bullets were then awarded a penalty on 87 minutes after Chiukepo was fouled in the Fisd box. The striker stepped up for the challenge and scored his 13th goal of the season and his second of the the match.
