Chapungu edge Triangle
Chapungu 1-0 Triangle CHAPUNGU cruised to their third consecutive home win when they edged battling Triangle at Ascot Stadium yesterday.
A 13th minute own goal by Triangle defender Donald Dzvinyai was all the airmen needed to secure maximum points in a scrappy encounter that had no meaningful chances.
Allen Tavarwisa’s free kick was miscued by Dzvinyai, who agonisingly beat his goalkeeper Ronald Mudimu in an attempt to clear the ball.
After that goal, the match degenerated into a scrappy affair, with nothing to write home about. The second half was just as scrappy as the first.
The only meaningful chance created was by Triangle in the 65th minute when Rodwell Mhlanga’s free kick was flicked towards the Chapungu goal by Tichaona Mapungwana, but his effort missed the target with Roy Mazingi in goals for Chapungu beaten.
Sensing danger and with Triangle on the ascendancy, Chapungu coach John Nyikadzino told his charges to protect their one goal advantage.
“I am very happy that we managed to collect maximum points considering that we created very few chances today. It was sweet revenge for us, especially after we lost the reverse fixture,” Nyikadzino said.
His counterpart David Mandigora was disappointed with the result and blamed the loss on a lapse in concentration by his defenders.
“I am disappointed because we were punished for a lapse in concentration.
“We need to go back to the drawing board because we are not creating chances as we have now gone three games without scoring and it’s worrisome.” — @ lavuzigara1
