Mb­weti, Tsipa lead sharp shoot­ers

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport - Sikhum­buzo Moyo

HWANGE’s pint sized hit­man Gift Mb­weti is joint Cas­tle Lager Pre­mier Soc­cer League lead­ing goalscorer with resur­gent Caps United vet­eran striker Leonard Tsipa with eight goals each.

This is con­trary to re­ports in some sec­tions of the me­dia that the 34 year old Tsipa was now lead­ing the goalscorer’s chats with nine goals fol­low­ing his match win­ning goal against Chicken Inn on Sun­day, one ahead of Mb­weti, 10 years his ju­nior who was just a 12 year old boy when Tsipa and Bel­gium based Brian Badza ter­rorised de­fend­ers at will un­der Charles Mh­lauri in 2004. The er­ror seems to have oc­curred when Caps United routed Mutare City 4-1 to­wards the end of last month with jour­nal­ists cred­it­ing Tsipa with a goal which how­ever was scored by Joel Ngodzo ac­cord­ing to the Pre­mier Soc­cer League.

Ac­cord­ing to a PSL goalscor­ers chart for Week 22 be­fore the past week­end games, Mb­weti was lead­ing the pack with eight goals while the trio of Tsipa, Ku­dak­washe Gu­rure of Mutare City and the now Tan­za­nia-based Bruce Kangwa were all sit­ting on seven goals while Oba­diah Tarumbwa of Chicken Inn and Hwange’s Gil­bert Zulu had five goals each.

Tsipa is the only player who found the nets in the past week­end from the lead­ing pack while Dy­namos’ Masimba Mam­bare took his tally to five fol­low­ing his 28th minute strike against High­landers at Bar­bour­fields Sta­dium.

Mam­bare is now level with Hwange’s Zulu and Tarumbwa.
