Limping Buildcon stunned fancied Green Eagles 2-1 away in Choma on Saturday to take the early lead on Saturday of the 2021 FAZ Super League table.
Buildcon limped into the new campaign with a late pre-season three weeks ago due to operational reasons after losing ten key players to other clubs as their colleagues were a month-and-a-half done with their training.
Defender Warren Kunda put Eagles ahead in the 12th minute to give the home side a promising start.
But Lubinda Mundia scored a brace with goals in each half in the 28th and 50th minutes to hand Buildcon the 3 points and top-spot.
Meanwhile, promoted Konkola Blades are second following a 1-0 home win over Power Dynamos in a poor game played at Konkola Stadium in Chililabombwe.
Ronald Chibwe scored the lone goal in the 63rd minute for the home side.
