Malawi national netball team the Queens has ended its two International Friendly matches against England with another humiliating defeat.
Malawi Queens lost to England 44-65 on a game played at the Worcester Arena on Saturday.
The loss comes barely days after the Queens also tumbled to the same side on Wednesday 36-65 at a game played at London’s Copperbox Arena.
The Queens headed by Mary Waya approached the second match with a different way to surprise the host. Waya threw in Takondwa Lwazi for Martha Dambo and Joanna Kachilika for wing defender Grace Mwafulirwa Mhango.
Kachilika , Carol Mtukule-Ngwira and Towera Vinkhumbo-Nyirenda were all in defence while Lwazi alongside Bridget Kumwenda supplied balls upfront where Lauren Ngwira and Sindie Simtowe started.
Although this was the case, the host managed to contain the Queens pressure. No wonder the hosts led the first quarter 14-10 and they stretched the lead to 30-21 at half time. At the end of the third quarter England led 50-32.
In the final quarter , the Queens looked geared but it was too late to save Jerusalem as the host defended the lead and ended 44-65 in favour of the host.
Speaking in an Interview after the game, Waya said the absence of Mwai Kumwenda, Beatrice Mpinganjira and Tina Kamzati-Jahness worked to their disadvantage.
The development means that the Queens have registered no win from 8 games played so far.
