Nkwazi have been demoted from the Faz Super Division after losing 3-1 at home today against Red Arrows.

Arrows meanwhile finished second on 52 points with a game to go before the end of the season thanks to their away win at Edwin Emboela Stadium in Lusaka.

Nkwazi were the last team demoted this afternoon joining Kalewa, Lime Hotspurs and Kabwe Warriors down to Division 1.

Arrows took a 3-0 lead into half time with midfielder Mwape Mwelwa scoring the first goal in the 10th minute.

The visitors later benefited from a Dennis Makinka own-goal in the 27th minute who failed to deal with the ball under pressure from Dan Sibanda.

Arrows made it 3-0 in the 38th minute when striker Dube Phiri blasted in the ball from a tight angle.

Nkwazi battled back in the second half through Augustine Mulenga who scored in the facesaver 75th minute but Arrows rode the pressure to send Nkwazi down to Division 1 South football next season.

Arrows second place finish with a game to spare means they will represent Zambia in the 2011 Confederation Cup.

    Football has finally gone back home – it is pleasing to see that five of the top six teams are from the Copperbelt. I bet next season it will be Kalampa’s turn to make its fans proud.
