Samson Chipanjira, Chisomo Sineta Gillion and Dave Balaka offered the students the baptism of fire in the top flight league.
Moyale Barracks, who took pole position after the first week with four points having won one game and drawn one, suffered their first league loss at the hands of Blue Eagles.
Blue Eagles building from last week’s 3-1 dream start over Super League rookies beat Moyale 2-0 through John Malidadi Jr and John Banda goals.
Wanderers dramatic 3-1 over Epac United last week got a reality check after Azam Tigers run riot to tame them with a two-all draw at Kamuzu Stadium.
Wanderers started with false hopes but failed to take their chances.
But the match lived up to the expectation as both Eliah Kananji charges squared up against Wanderers former coach Gerald Phiri.
The Nomads rued their chances as Tigers managed to absorb the pressure earlier in the game and then managed to contain them to go for recess at goalless.

However the second half exploded into life after the second half Wanderers scored as early as four minutes after resumption.

Rafique Mussa turned to villain when he was shown marching orders which turned the game in Tigers favour.

Mussa was sent for an early shower for second bookbale offence to follow Mike Kazipua who was also red carded last week against Epac.

Tigers scored through Dan Kumwenda and Peter Kasonga comign from behind after Sparrow Msowoya and Muhamed Sulumba had given the Nomads a two-goal cushion.
Tigers team manager Steve Madeira blamed the red card which reduced to 10 men to have affected the team.
“I think we had all the chances but the red card made them to have an advantage,” Madeira said.

Tigers Technical Director, who is also a former Wanderers Team Manager said the game was balanced affair.
“We could have won the game especially from the chances we created in the first half,” Alufandka said.
“But we told the boys to keep on fighting until the final whistle.”
