A closely fought game ended with MFA losing by two goals to nil at table toppers Elite. This was a much improved performance by MFA who were extremely unlucky on more than one occasion not to get on the score sheet.
With several changes in personnel and a more vibrant and enthusiastic approach meant MFA took it to the hosts from the first minute. Striker Niza Chilufya was judged offside on a couple of occasions as he burst through on goal, much to the visitor’s disappointment.
As MFA pressed, they were caught by a sucker punch goal when a mistake at the heart of the defence allowed for an easy chance to be converted. 1-0.
Again MFA pressed and were unlucky to hit the post from a direct free kick. Elite managed a second and decisive goal and proved why they are top of the league as they ground out a victory when a draw would have been the fair result.
Final result 2-0 to Elite Soccer Academy, leaving MFA mid-table with 4 League games to go.
