The Nomads started hunting for an early goal with an exchange of passes between Nyangulu and Babatunde.

However, a good defensive work from Dwangwa frustrated their efforts. Much as they tried, the two could not the pass the ball inside Dwangwa’s half.

A breakthrough came in the 41st minute of the first half through Nyangulu who received a brilliant pass inside the penalty box from Babatunde.

The first half ended 1-0 in favour of Wanderers.

After the break, there was great work between Wanderers attacking midfielders, Francis Mkonda and Francisco Madinga who supplied their strikers with good balls.

Wanderers got a second goal after 52 minutes when Babatunde capitalised on a mistake by a Dwangwa defender.

Four minutes later, Babatunde fired a third goal.

Just three minutes, Babatunde dribbled past a Dwangwa defender and sent a well-curved cross to unmarked Nyangulu to score a fourth goal for Nomads.

Nyangulu completed his hat-trick in the 59th minute after he received a pass from Adepoju near the penalty box.

Wanderers coach Oscar Kaunda brought in Rafique Namwera, Zicco Mkanda and Misheck Botomani for Felix Zulu, Babatunde and Isaac Kaliati but there was no impact.

Dwangwa coach Ladwel Mbetewa took out Ganizani James for Winiko Banda in the second half, but they could not break Wanderers’ defence.

Mbetewa said his boys lost concentration when they conceded more goals in the second half.

“We started well but in the second half we lost it all. It was difficult to stop them, but we are not giving up,” he said.

Dwangwa are on position 15 with five points from eight games.

Wanderers team manager Victor Maunde was a happy man. “This is my first game, I feel good because I have started with a win,” he said.
