In­line Academy, Hwange ladies clash

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport - Allen Khu­malo Sports Re­porter

IN­LINE Academy will be out to ex­tend their un­beaten streak to 15 matches when they host Hwange Ladies this af­ter­noon fol­low­ing their 1-0 vic­tory against ZRP Bu­l­awayo in a catch up fix­ture on Thurs­day.

The match was post­poned last week af­ter the po­lice-owned team no­ti­fied the league bosses that their play­ers would be com­mit­ted with work du­ties.

In­line Academy are top­ping the ta­ble with 36 points from 14 matches and only drew three games. Sec­ond placed Hearts of Oaks have 30 points hav­ing played 14 matches.

Mean­while, High­landers Roy­als will be hop­ing to con­tinue win­ning when they take on Cow­dray Park at the club­house on to­day. Last Satur­day, Roy­als recorded their sec­ond vic­tory in open play when they beat Street Set 1-0 in Sizinda sub­urb. The first was a 3-0 win over ZRP Bu­l­awayo Prov­ince. Prior to the two wins the team had gone for 12 con­sec­u­tive de­feats only man­ag­ing to col­lect three points as a re­sult of a walkover af­ter Sobuk­hazi failed to ful­fil a fix­ture in June.

Roy­als — a ma­jor­ity of their play­ers who are school­girls from Nku­lumane and Sobuk­hazi High Schools — cur­rently sit third from the bot­tom with nine points from 14 matches.

Roy­als man­ager­ess Jac­que­line Ng­wenya is op­ti­mistic the team will pull an­other shocker against their more ex­pe­ri­enced op­po­nents Cow­dray Park.

“This is the be­gin­ning of good things. Cow­dray Park should ex­pect a to­tally dif­fer­ent Roy­als be­cause we have im­proved a lot in the last few weeks,” she said. — @khumza­llen
