Moyo strike earns Fal­cons max­i­mum points

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

A SEC­OND half goal by Vic­tor Moyo handed FBC Fal­cons max­i­mum points as they edged United FC 1-0 in a Bu­l­awayo Am­a­teur Foot­ball As­so­ci­a­tion (Bafa) League clash yes­ter­day.

The left-back headed home the win­ner in the 79th minute when he pounced on a re­bound af­ter United de­fend­ers failed to deal with a well taken cor­ner kick by left winger Whis­per Mu­jokoro.

The first half was a dull en­counter, with very few goal scor­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties be­ing cre­ated.

The first real at­tempt came seven min­utes into the sec­ond half when Mu­jokoro’s free-kick hit the post area.

Mu­jokoro was used as an im­pact player fol­low­ing his brace in their 3-1 win that ended Rebels FC’s 20-game win­ning streak in the league a fort­night ago.

His ex­cep­tional pace made him a men­ace to de­fend­ers.

United tried to fight their way back into the game, but were un­able to cre­ate any de­cent scor­ing chances as Fal­cons held on for the win.

Fal­cons’ coach Kudzai Mhandire said he was not con­vinced with his team’s per­for­mance.

“The game was good, but not con­vinc­ing. It was just a luke­warm match with both teams not show­ing enough in­tent to score.

“This is prob­a­bly due to the fact that we didn’t train be­fore be­ing cleared out of the dan­ger mid-week as we had at­tended a fu­neral.

“Our as­sis­tant coach lost his mother so we had to sup­port the fam­ily in this dif­fi­cult time,” said Mhandire.

Mean­while, Lad­uma atoned for last week’s 2-0 de­feat in the Town­shend and Butcher Cup fi­nal with a 7-0 thump­ing of Se­curico.

Mpilo FC were awarded three points since their week­end op­po­nents Madamara were ex­pelled from the league last week.

Eleven War­riors lost 1-2 to Anolle Cast­ings, while Nga Chron­i­cle beat Safe Guard 2-0. Dy­namic Diesel suf­fered a 0-3 de­feat to Cru­saders.

Rebels were in­volved in a high-scor­ing 5-3 win over Vipers. Seven War­riors beat Unity Vil­lage 1-0. — @ khumza­llen
