No silverware for Bullets in 2016 despite beating Blue Eagles in final match


Chiukepo Msowoya’s lone goal helped Nyasa Big Bullets finish their Super League campaign with a 1 nil win against Blue Eagles on Saturday.

Following this result Nyasa Big Bullets have finished this season in second place with 60 points.

The match started on a slow pace as both Nyasa Big Bullets and the Area 30 cops all lacked the scoring composure in front of goals.

After 20 minutes, Nyasa Big Bullets started playing with some purpose as their wonderkid Mike Mkwate and Dalitso Sailesi were exchanging good passes but Chiukepo was too shy before the goal post to convert Bullets chances into goals.
