Central Region Army outfit Support Battalion rebounded to the K6 million Chipiku Premier Division throne after a successful weekend to displace to fifth previous leaders Mchinji Boma Stars.
Battalion, who edged out Black Eagles 3-2 on Saturday, lead the 20-member second-tier league for the Chipiku Central Region Football League (CRFL) on 32 points after 10 rounds of matches with Dedza Young Soccer sapping on their heels at 32 points from lesser 16 games.
Similar points are also for third-positioned Kasungu Medicals and Hard Knockers are fourth-placed on 29 points in 13 games. Mchinji also have 29 points in 17 outings.
Kasungu Medicals got maximum points after their Sunday’s game against Mponela United ended prematurely 20 minutes into the first-half after they walked out in protest of a penalty awarded to Medicals.
CRFL secretariat wrote that “the league has awarded three points to Kasungu Medicals with 2-0 margin. Mponela United were guilty of causing abandonment of the game.”
Dedza trounced Maicc FC 4-1, thanks to Willard Dickson’s brace and other strikes from Chisomo Gillion and Davie Balaka. But there was a reversal of the fortunes for Dedza as they lost 1-0 to Hard Knockers. Mitundu FC still anchors the table at 12 points from 15 games.
On the individual honours Frackson Robert from Dowa FC and Noel Chibwana (Hard Knockers) and Kondwani Bag (Dwangwa) have five goals apiece.
