Bullets survive Karonga United scare in a seven goal thriller

Nyasa Big Bullets vs Karonga United

…as KB maul Moyale Barracks

Nyasa Big Bullets came from behind to beat stubborn Karonga United at Kamuzu Stadium on Saturday afternoon to move to the top of standings for the first time this season.

It only took less than 45 seconds for Bullets to knock at the visitors’ goal when Dalitso Sailesi’ cross found Muhamad Sulumba unmarked only for the former to hit the upright.

Moments later, against the run of play, Khumbo Msowoya dribbled past Bullets defenders before pulling the trigger only to be denied by the cross bar.

However, Msowoya got his wish when he made his way into the box, dribbling past Yamikani Fodya and Miracle Gabeya before putting the ball into an empty net, 1-0.

The goal was a wake up call to the home side who levelled the scoreline some minutes later through Chiukepo Msowoya who connected well from a Henry Kabichi’s shot just outside the penalty box, 1-1.

Moments later, the home side were 2-1 up. Davie Mwalughali was judged to have handled the ball inside the penalty box by referee Happy Ng’ambi who pointed straight at the spot, allowing Chiukepo Msowoya to put Bullets ahead with a beautiful spotkick, 2-1.

Despite being behind, the rookies played without fear as Msowoya, Nangaunozge Luhanga and Gly Msowoya played brilliant football to the disappointment of the home fans.

Bullets had to introduce Chikondi Likwemba for Kabichi as they tried to stablelize their scattered midfield. Just when everybody thought Bullets were in complete control of the match, the rookies pulled level.

A brilliant move from Msowoya and Luhanga released William Mwalwimba who made no mistake but to fire past Chimwemwe Kumkwawa in goals for the hosts.

After the recess, it only took the visitors seven minutes to restore their lead when Bullets defence was caught napping in the line of duty allowing Khumbo Msowoya to volley past the advanced Kumkwawa before kissing the back of the net, 2-3.

The goal forced Bullets to introduce Mussa Manyenje for ineffective Muhamad Sulumba while Luhanga was also substituted for Karonga United.

Manyenje made an immediate impact when his through ball found Chiukepo Msowoya who forced his way into the box before slotting past Lloyd Munthali in goals for the rookies to make it 3-all. Bullets then brought in MacPhallen Mgwira for Sailesi, resulting in protest by some quarters of Bullets supporters who wanted the former Blantyre United winger to continue playing. Karonga United had Munthali to thank as he produced three stunning saves to deny Msowoya and Diverson Mlozi from scoring. However, Bullets scored their winning goal in a dramatic style in the 87th minute.

A long ball from Fodya found Manyenje who fed Kondwani Kumwenda to make an easy finish, 4-3. The goal angered the visitors who decided to leave the field of play but had to be stopped by their coach Oscar Kaunda.

After 90 minutes of play, five more additional minutes were added but Bullets held on to record one of their toughest victories in the ongoing season to move to the top of standings with 45 points from 25 games.

As for Karonga United, they are still stuck in the drop zone with 21 points from 24 games and if they are to survive, they must surely beat Red Lions in Zomba on Sunday in their second away from home fixture.

At Civo Stadium, Harvey Nkacha and Kelvin Hang’anda scored in either halves to inspire Kamuzu Barracks to a confortable 2-0 victory over fellow brothers in arms Moyale Barracks.

The result takes KB to 4th position with 43 points from 24 games. At MDC Stadium. Azam Tigers and Epac FC shared a point each following a 1-all draw.

Mzuni FC collected maximum points without kicking the ball as Max Bullets did not show up for their league match at Mpira Village in Blantyre.

The action continues on Sunday with Be Forward Wanderers playing host to Epac FC at Kamuzu Stadium while Red Lions will entertain Karonga United at Zomba Community Centre Ground.

At Chitowe Stadium, Dwangwa United will host MAFCO FC while Wizards FC will rock horns with Mzuni FC.

  6. Hello friends my name is Zeida Mohammad I was one of those millions of people around the world suffering from HIV/AIDS and and i was healed through the help of DR Abumen I was diagnosed with HIV/AIDS in 2006, I had no hope and felt useless. All these negative feelings quickly suppressed my body immune system and my body started to deteriorate quickly with physical signs of rapid weight loss, my story began to change for good when i met DR Abumen through a woman’s testimony, he sent me an herbal medicine which i took for some days, after taking the medicine according to doctor’s instruction I went to the hospital to get my blood tested for HIV/AIDS. The doctors were amazed when my first blood test result came back negative. They asked me to go back again for another test, which I did and the result came back negative. The doctors could not believe still,To cut the story short, “DR ABUMEN HERBAL MEDICINE HEALED ME COMPLETELY WITHOUT A TRACE OF THE DEADLY HIV/AIDS VIRUS IN MY BLOOD” am so happy, am sharing this to the world to save some lives, believe me there is a cure, you can contact DR Abumen on his email address [email protected] and you can also call or whatsapp his number which is via +2347085071418.
