Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport - Sports Re­porter

Ngezi Plat­inum 2 - 0 Cha­pungu REIGN­ING North­ern Re­gion Di­vi­sion One Soc­cer Star of the Year Don­ald Te­guru scored for the third time in a row as his side Ngezi Plat­inum saw off Cha­pungu in a Cas­tle Lager Premier Soc­cer League match at Baobab yes­ter­day.

The dread­locked striker scored in the 28th minute and turned provider in the 91st minute when he fed James Marufu to seal vic­tory for the Ngezi-based plat­inum min­ers.

Te­guru is in fine form and has man­aged to do well in the top-flight af­ter his side got pro­moted last sea­son.

Ngezi Plat­inum Stars coach Ton­derai Ndi­raya said he was happy with the good out­ing as they des­per­ately needed the win at home.

“Play­ing at home is not al­ways easy as we need points more, we are happy that we man­aged to win the match.

“The boys played as a unit and we hope this is go­ing to mo­ti­vate them to work even harder. We need a strong fin­ish in the race and per­for­mances like these are good for the team.

“We are now shift­ing our fo­cus to pre­pare for the High­landers game set for the week­end. We will con­tinue to work hard and the boys are now con­fi­dent enough,” said Ndi­raya.

Cha­pungu coach John Nyikadzino gave credit to the home side’s first half per­for­mance in which he be­lieves they were bet­ter than his side.

“We lost but it was a good game they got their ad­van­tage in the first half where they played well and af­ter the breather we were all over them.

“They utilised their sec­ond chance in the sec­ond half to beat us but our fin­ish­ing needs to be worked on be­fore we host Mutare City at As­cot.

“We will try hard to do well in our next as­sign­ment,” said Nyikadzino.
