There was no story book ending on Sunday for Nkana and Mighty Mufulira Wanderers in their opening week of the 2015 FAZ super Division.
Nkana and Mighty both lost to Red Arrows and Konkola Blades respectively in a Week One doubleheader played at Nkana Stadium in Kitwe.
In the lunchtime kick off, Blades spoilt Mighty’s ten-year return party when they beat the nine-time champions 1-0 thanks to a 6th minute goal from Dave Kalandanya.
It was the same tale in the late kickoff when Arrows beat Nkana by the same margin.
Striker Francis Kombe returned to haunted his former club when he hammered in the only goal in the 28th minute.
Nkana face Blades away next weekend in Chililabombwe while Wanderers visit fellow promoted side Nkwazi in Lusaka.
