Malawi Queens get past Zimbabwe

133

England based Malawian goal shooter Joyce Mvula inspired Malawi Queens to a hard fought 55-45 victory over Zimbabwe at MTN Arena in the ongoing African Netball Cup in Uganda.

Without some key players, it was Mvula and Jane Chimaliro who were the stars to watch for the Queens as they put their opponents to the sword.

However, Zimbabwe took a surprising lead in the opening five minutes as Malawi Queens were yet to settle down.

The first quarter ended 17-9 in favour of Malawi, who are the highest ranked side at the tournament.

In the second quarter, Zimbabwe were good when attacking but found it very difficult to defend against the much experienced side.

Mvula was very lethal as she scored several baskets to help Malawi finish the quarter 28-21.

However, things started working out for Zimbabwe as they dominated quarter three.

Their goal shooter Pauli Jani and wing attacker Muwande Omega were pressing hard in search for more baskets in order to reduce the arrears.

Mvula was tightly marked, allowing Chimaliro to take over the goal scoring duty and she did not disappoint.

The third quarter ended 40-36 in favour of Malawi.

Come the last quarter, Zimbabwe were coming wave after wave as the difference was just 7 baskets.

It took another individual brilliance from Mvula to put the game to bed as she scored vital baskets to inspire Malawi to a 55-45 victory in their opening game.

Malawi’s toughest opponents at the tournament are Uganda who won yesterday to top the standings.
