SAFE­GUARD beat Anolle Cast­ings 3-1 vic­tory in a Bu­l­awayo Am­a­teur Foot­ball As­so­ci­a­tion (Bafa) clash at the Bar­bour­fields Sta­dium out­side grounds yes­ter­day.

A brace by Mduduzi Mnkandla and Keith Chikami en­sured vic­tory for Safe­guard while Anolle Cast­ings got their con­so­la­tion through Trust Sibanda.

Mnkandla opened the scor­ing 12 min­utes into the game af­ter con­nect­ing a Mduduzi Ncube cross.

In the 27th minute, Chikami broke through and came face-to-face with goal­keeper Courage Ndlovu. He un­leashed a pow­er­ful strike, which Ndlovu failed to deal with and Chikami pounced onto the re­bound to dou­ble Safe­guard’s lead.

Mnkandla then made it three through a header five min­utes be­fore the break.

The se­cond half saw both sides cre­at­ing a cou­ple of chances, but fail­ing to con­vert.

Sibanda then scored the con­so­la­tion in the dy­ing stages of the match.

Safe­guard coach Sibangilizwe Mpofu said he was proud of the way his troops per­formed from the on­set, and was par­tic­u­larly im­pressed with how they choked Anolle Cast­ings.

“I am very proud of the boys be­cause we put a lot of pressure on our op­po­nents and didn’t give them a lot of space or time on the ball.

“I think in terms of our tac­ti­cal strat­egy to­day, it re­ally worked well.

“What’s im­por­tant Mpofu.
