Nyasa Big Bullets Football club has become the second team to reach the semi-final stage in 2017 FISD challenge cup, following their 8-7 victory over Blue Eagles football club through penalty shootout on Sunday.
Big Bullets has joined Masters Security FC which is already in the semis.
The match which was a fifty-fifty affair in terms of ball possession, failed to produce goals at the end of 90 minutes forcing the teams into penalty shootout session.
All the eight penalties from Big Bullets were successfully converted by the team’s players led by the veteran Chiukepo Msowoya.
But the cup title hopes for Blue Eagles were shuttered after Bullets goal keeper, Enerst Kakhobwe, saved an eighth spot kick from Eagle’s Same Banda.
The other quota final matches will be played on Thursday with Moyale Barracks taking on Umodzi FC while Kamuzu Barracks will play Tigers FC.
The winner between Moyale Barracks and Umodzi FC will face Nyasa Big Bullets while the winner between Kamuzu Barracks and Tigers FC will take on Masters Security in the semi-final stage.
The winner of the cup is expected to pocket K12 million prize money.
