The Malawian continued her impressive form as she ensured her side extended their winning run to seven on Wednesday

Tabitha Chawinga was on target as Jiangsu Suning secured their seventh successive win in a 3-0 victory over Henan Huishang on Wednesday. 

The Malawi international, who scored in all the opening six matches of Jiangsu this term, scored her seventh to help the leaders wrap up the first round in style.

Before Chawinga's strike completed the riot for Jiangsu, Yao Lingwei and He Wei gave the hosts a two-goal advantage against Henan in Nanjing.

With the end of the first stanza in China, the 23-year-old Malawian is now the leading goalscorer with seven goals in seven outings this season.

On the other hand, the Nigeria duo of Onome Ebi and Chiwendu Ihezuo were also in action as Henan suffered their fourth successive defeats this season.

The result means Jiangsu have recorded seven successive wins in seven games and are eight points clear at the top of the Chinese top-flight.
