IPP Media netball team ‘IPP Queens’ hit Mwananchi Communication Limited (MCL) 16-14 in the opening match of the NSSF Media at TCC Club in Chang’ombe yesterday.
The Mikocheni-based queens played a hi-tech game which their opponents could not march in rhythm with.
The IPP victory was contributed by their stars such as Somoe Ng'itu, Fatuma Dola and Beatrice Shayo who made good moves to calm their rivals’ efforts.
Futuma scored 10 goals while Somoe registered six. Mwananchi’s scorers were Iman Makongoro (8) and Ruth Lihana (6).
IPP’s other players were Stella Mwasyeba, Elizabeth Zaya, Romana Mallya, Restuta James, Devotha Kabuta, Daima Halahala and Karama Kenyunko.
IPP Queens will be again in the action again on Tuesday when they will play NSSF as Mwananchi will play Sahara Media (Star TV) a day after.
IPP Veterans `Dream Team’ will start their campaign on Tuesday when they face Habari Zanzibar at DUCE ground.
