Moto Moto dom­i­nate Zifa Mat-North Div Two League

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport - To­bias Man­doreba in Hwange

ARMY out­fit Moto Moto shot to the top of the Zifa Mata­bele­land North Di­vi­sion Two League ta­ble for the first time this sea­son af­ter gun­ning down hap­less Tru­mus War­riors 2-0 at Sports Pavil­ion at the week­end.

Shaibar Dimingu and Me­lard Manye­vere were on tar­get for the soldiers as Tru­mus War­riors con­tin­ued with their alarm­ing dip in form. They suf­fered a 1-3 whack­ing by Lukhosi Pi­rates in the pre­vi­ous week.

Hot­spurs Leop­ards eked out a 1-0 win over stub­born Black­rock, whose ag­ile 17-year-old goal­keeper Matthew Phiri showed signs of a bright fu­ture in be­tween the sticks, as he thwarted ma­raud­ing Leop­ards strik­ers with some su­perb saves. Ter­rence Netha scored the only goal of the con­test watched by a huge crowd.

In Vic­to­ria Falls, Mosi Rovers ran riot in a onesided derby as they de­mol­ished Corinthi­ans 6-1 at Chino­timba Sta­dium.

Tyson Ncube scored four times with a goal apiece by Arnold Sibanda and Li­falak­wabo Mpofu com­plet­ing the de­mo­li­tion show.

Later in the day Ama­ga­gasi and Clas­sic Luyando played to a goal­less draw at the same venue.

On Sun­day, Lukhosi Pi­rates con­tin­ued with their rich vein of form with a 1-0 home win over Iwisa, cour­tesy of a lovely strike by Moses Khu­malo.

In­gag­ula have a chance to shoot back to the top of the ta­ble if they beat Moto Moto in to­day’s re­ar­ranged fix­ture at In­gag­ula Sta­dium.

In other matches to­day, Leop­ards host Hwange Un­der-17 in Dete, while Baobab Rovers visit Te­nax FC at Prison Ground.

The mid­week fix­tures are a re­sult of some teams hav­ing more than three play­ers in the Mata­bele­land North soccer team that took part in the Na­tional Youth Games held in Chin­hoyi re­cently.
