BREAKING: Kamuzu Barracks win Malawi’s top flight league

162

Kamuzu Barracks have completed one of the most remarkable stories in the history of Malawi football by winning the 2016 TNM Super League title with 61 points.

Written off as top eight contenders at the start of the season when the bookmakers made them 5000-1 outsiders to be crowned champions, they secured the first top-flight title in their history after thumping Dwangwa United 4-1 at Chitowe Stadiun on the new year’s eve.

Kamuzu Barracks

Kamuzu Barracks win Malawi’s topflight league.

Closest challengers Nyasa Big Bullets, Silver Strikers and Blue Eagles, have all failed to match the Soldiers consistency across the season especially in the second round where they went unbeaten at home by collecting more points at their backyard than any other team.

Harvey Nkacha gave the leaders an early lead just two minutes into the first half before Ben Hojani’s tap in to put the Soldier 2-nil up at half time.

In the second half, the newly crowned champions completed the routing by scoring two more goals, to make history by becoming the first team from Malawi Defence Force (MDF) to win the championship.

Despite Bullets’ 1-nil victory over Blue Eagles at Kamuzu Stadium on the same day, the Soldiers went on to finish the job that was started in April this year.

Soon after the final whistle, a Helicopter from MDF landed safely at Chitowe Stadium to collect the trophy.

The Soldiers were given a trophy and a cheque worthy K15 million.

In other matches, Silver Strikers climbed up to third in the standings after overcoming Mafco FC at Silver Stadium while relegated Civo Service United and Azam Tigers shared a point apeace following a 1-all draw at Civo Stadium.
