Malawi netball team the Queens has for the third time registered a win in the ongoing netball world cup in United Kingdom (UK) after beating Northern Ireland by 47-43 baskets.

The first quarter ended with the Queens leading with a three-goal difference as it ended at 12-9.
The Queens had it tough in the second quarter as they did not manage to maintain the status and they gave away a basket which resulted into narrowing the goal difference with two baskets and the quarter ended at 10-11 totaling to 34-32.
The Queens committed some costly fouls in the third quarter however, they got away with it as they maintain a two-goal difference after both teams scored 12 baskets each and ended with 34-32.
There was a turnaround in the final round as the Malawi Queens spanned the game to their advantage with classic performance both on the attack and goal, taking a three-goal difference and the game ended at 47-43.
Takondwa Rwazi was named player of the match and she has since pledged to work extra hard to see the team progressing to the next level.
“I know that as we go to the next level it won’t be easy but we will work extra hard so we reach position 5 even 4 of the world records,” said Rwazi.
She then recommended fellow prayers for the team spirit as well as the coach for true leadership.
