Eagles and Kamuzu Barracks reaches FISD Finals

Kamuzu Barracks were the last side to secure their final slot in this year’s FISD Challenge Cup following their 4-1 thrashing of Hangover United at Mpira Stadium in Blantyre.

The soldiers will meet Blue Eagles which also eliminated Silver Strikers with four goals but to zero at Civo Stadium on Saturday.

With all hopes and expectations from spectators from the Southern Region, home for Hangover, especially after being the only representative from the region, the team failed to live to its billing from the first whistle in the first half.

Spectators thronged to the Stadium expecting to see the only premier league side to reach this stage upset the Lilongwe soldiers as they did with Be Forward Wanderers in the quarterfinals, but it never worked.

Looking so determined to reach the final stage, KB scored 10 minutes into play courtesy of Francisco Kamdzeka before Nation Harazi doubled the lead through a header seven minutes later.

At 31st minute, Harazi doubled his score while Harvey Mkacha netted the last one.

As the soldiers were celebrating their fourth goal, the rookies  quickly restarted play with Brighton Gomani’s long range shot ending up in the visitors’ net.

Referee Misheck Juba awarded the host a goal which was their consolation.

Second half they tried to push for another goal while outclassing KB, but it seems the early goals worked to the advantage of the soldiers.

EagIt now remains in the hands of the all-Central Region giants to prove their superiority and lay their hands on the K20 million prize money, while the other takes K7 million as runners-up.
