Malawi: Blue Eagles Go Top of Malawi Tnm Super League – Sweep Max Bullets Aside

Blue Eagles stunned Max Bullets 5-3 to top the TNM Super League table on Sunday in a match lowly patronised at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre.

The Area 30- cops also breathed fire on Saturday as they beat Azam Tigers 1-0 in Nchalo to go four games without any defeat.

They clipped Dwangwa United in their first game before stunning Epac FC. They also pruned Tigers before Max Bullets on Sunday.

They have 12 points from four games.

Maxwell Salambula, who was also voted man of the match, inspired his side as he netted three goals with Charles Ngosi and Gregory Nachipo scoring each.

Max Bullets made the better start with the likes of Frazer Menyani and Mayeso Mphanje dictating the game but lost the rhythm after 20 minutes.

From there, Blue Eagles looked set to dominate – Chisomo Chilasa provided the service for Gilbert Chirwa to run into the channels with support arriving from Osward Mawonga and Ackim Kazombo but their final touch was too weak to threaten Max keeper.
