TNM Super League leaders Nyasa Big Bullets on Sunday put up another great show as they demolished relegation threatened TN Stars by a massive margin of 8-0 at the Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre.
Anthony Mfune was on red-hot form
as he scored three goals against a hapless defence of the Kasungu-based side.
Mfune scored the first goal for the People’s team on the seventh minute after connecting well a Patrick Mwaungulu well taken corner-kick to put his side in front.
Precious Sambani increased Bullets’ lead just three minutes after the first goal with a brilliant header from another well taken corner
-kick by the youthful Mwaungulu.

After creating a number of scoring opportunities Patrick Mwaungulu put his name on the score sheet after he received a beautiful pass from Frank Willard in the 37th minute.
Just when everyone thought the first half was to end at 6-nil, Mfune had other thoughts. He scored his second goal of the match after receiving a cross from Blessings Mpokera just six minutes to half-time.
