How Mine com­plete dou­ble against Tri­an­gle

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport - Os­car Rusenga in Tri­an­gle

Tri­an­gle FC 1-2 How Mine HOW Mine came back from a goal down yes­ter­day to beat Tri­an­gle United in coach Kelvin Kaindu’s first re­turn to Gibbo af­ter the Zam­bian in­ter­na­tional led the Lowveld side to their best fin­ish in the Cas­tle Lager Premier­ship soc­cer last sea­son.

The match was evenly con­tested but Kaindu man­aged to com­plete a dou­ble over his for­mer em­ploy­ers af­ter col­lect­ing max­i­mum points in the first game in Bu­l­awayo.

“As much as we picked max­i­mum points, I give all the credit to the team, we came from a goal down and we re­sponded and man­aged to get an equaliser. It’s not easy to beat Tri­an­gle at home but the pos­i­tive side is this is the first six points that we have col­lected. It’s a plus to us and now we have man­aged to go on top of them on the log,” said Kaindu af­ter the match yes­ter­day.

Tri­an­gle opened the scor­ing as early as the 12th minute when How Mine’s Mbare-born goal­keeper Mun­yaradzi Diya gave away a cor­ner af­ter fail­ing to clear Mil­ton Ncube’s back pass.

Hardlife Mavhundi then rose high to head the ball home af­ter a well-worked cor­ner be­tween Dzin­gai Chi­ram­ba­muriwo and Nhamo Lameck with the lat­ter pro­vid­ing the as­sist.

Kaindu made a tac­ti­cal sub­sti­tu­tion, bring­ing on vet­eran striker Kuda Musharu for Stephen Nyam­babvu and that was the game changer as they got their equaliser shortly af­ter.

The vis­i­tors’ goal came in the same fash­ion as the hosts’ early goal but this time de­fender Kudzai Chideu was on the end of a mix-up be­tween Ron­ald Mudimu and his de­fend­ers to equalise from close range.

Adolf Mu­ganyi, who was a mar­vel to watch the whole af­ter­noon, capped his ef­forts with a goal that proved to be the match win­ner for the vis­i­tors in the 54th minute and Musharu’s goal was ruled out three min­utes later.

Tri­an­gle coach David “Yogi” Mandig­ora was not happy by his charges per­for­mance and looked dis­ap­pointed and de­jected at the fi­nal whis­tle.

“I’m so dis­ap­pointed that I can’t win a game and I don’t know what to say,” that’s all Mandig­ora man­aged to say.
