LILONGWE (Malawi NewsNow ) —Mighty Be Forward Wanderers has won Carlsberg Cup at the 2015 final match against its rivals Big Bullets by a 2-1 victory at Civo Stadium in Lilongwe on Saturday.
“It’s incredible, a dream, something unique,” said Be Forward Wanderers coach Elia Kananji who made history by winning the Carlsberg Cup with two rival teams. He was in charge of Bullets last year and won the same cup with Bullets and now he has snatched it to bring the cup to Lali Lubani Road.
The game lived up to its expectations much to the delight of full capacity crowd, including Vice-President Dr Saulosi Chilima.
Bullets conceded a penalty just 18 minutes into the match after Miracle Gabeya tripped Luka Milanzie in the box.
Victor Nyirenda scored from the spot, sending Owen Chaima the wrong way.
Just when referee Leo Ngoleka was about to blow the whistle for half-time Bullets equalised through Jafalie Chande eho headed into the net a Yamikani Fodya free-kick to make it 1-1.
The second-half saw both teams being aggressive. But it was the boys from Lali Lubani Road who took the lead again.
Kondwani Kumwenda made no mistake to power a Mike Kaziputa’s free-kick past Chaima to hand Wanderers the Carlsberg Cup.
Bullets coach Lloyd Nkhwazi shunned the press, but team manager Rahim Ishmael blamed the referee for the loss.
As Bullets were mourning, Wanderers were in wild scenes of celebrations.
