BULAWAYO, Mon­day, Novem­ber 7, 1966 — In a re­turn friendly soc­cer match at Cal­lies Ground yes­ter­day, Bulawayo, East­lands (RNFL) were hum­bled by Wankie.

East­lands played a great game mid­field, but within scor­ing range they kicked wide and their mid­field ef­forts did not pay off.

Wankie dic­tated the pace. They kept the ball to them­selves and be­fore the end, they turned the match into a demon­stra­tion which showed the lo­cal boys that the min­ers are su­perb in ev­ery department.

The scor­ing started in the 15th minute when in­side-right Badi re­ceived a pass from cen­tre for­ward Michael, fol­lowed this up when he drib­bled beau­ti­fully to claim Wankie’s sec­ond goal.

And at half time, Wankie were left in the lead by 2 goals to nil. The sec­ond half saw a more de­ter­mined East­lands’ side. In­side left back and out­side right back Nyan­doro had been out­stand­ing and they con­tin­ued their ef­forts to break through. Wankie’s cen­tre half, Mwape, had the thirst for more goals.

He moved for­ward from time to time and not long after the start of the sec­ond half, he scored the third.

Out­side left Moyo re­ceived a free kick out­side the penalty area and claimed Wankie’s fourth goal. And Mwape was still to come — he com­pleted a hat- trick — and when cen­tre for­ward Michael was still to come — he com­pleted a hat-trick and when cen­tre for­ward Michael broke through, he was fouled and from the penalty spot, Mwape net­ted the fifth.

The sixth goal came late in the sec­ond half. It also came from Mwape’s boot and East­lands still had no an­swer to Wankie’s re­sound­ing vic­tory when the fi­nal whis­tle stopped the game.
