Blue Eagles frustrate Sable Farming

By Twimepoki Mangani

Lilongwe, Mana: Blue Eagles Saturday put a dent in Sable Farming’s chances of staying in the elite TNM Super league after defeating them 1-0 at Nankhaka ground in Lilongwe. .

It was a dream start for Blue Eagles who punished Sable with an early goal from Micium Mhone in the fifth minute of the first half.

From then onwards, Blue Eagles decreased the mounted pressure on Sable Farming evidently seen through their different missed chances.

During the second half Sable Farming attempted in every way possible to unlock the Blue Eagles defence but lacked the composure.

However their defence led by George Nyirenda put up a wonderful display to deny Blue Eagles further chances of increasing their lead by making several blocks.

In a post-match interview Coach of Blue Eagles, Eliah Kananji said he was satisfied with the win since they want to maintain their position on the log table.

“We are grateful to God for the win, most people thought it was an easy game on paper but we know Sable is trying to save themselves from relegation and we don’t want Kamuzu Barracks and Wanderers to catch up with us either,” he said.

Kananji admitted that his team dropped momentum after the early goal but was glad that they were able to hold their defensive lines and did not concede a goal.

Coach of Sable Farming, MacDonald Nginde Mtetemera said his team was not yet relegated and they would continue to strive for survival.

“We were surprised in the first 10 minutes after the goal was conceded but afterwards the boys played well. The team is are not yet relegated we shall wait until the last game,” he said.

Mtetemera expressed dissatisfactions with the manner in which their match officiation was done stating that it aided to Blue Eagle’s victory.

Sable Farming has 24 points above relegated teams Rumphi united and TN Stars while Red Lions sit in 13th place after playing 28 games with 28 points, Blue Eagles is in second having played 28 games with 59 points.
