Nkhatha stun­ner steers Su­perS­port past Wits

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport -

KINGSTON Nkhatha’s im­pres­sive strike was enough to hand Su­perS­port United a 1-0 win over Bid­vest Wits in the Gaut­eng Cham­pion of Cham­pi­ons.

All matches in the tour­na­ment are 45 min­utes long. Should the score re­main level at the full-time whis­tle, the match will be de­cided by a Drib­ble Out.

The game got off to an ex­cit­ing start, as Wits’ Ngele and Su­perS­port’s Michael Mor­ton were pre­sented with chances in the open­ing 10 min­utes, but nei­ther could ca­p­atilise.

Su­perS­port even­tu­ally broke the dead­lock after 19 min­utes as Kingston Nkhatha got his name on the score-sheet with a fine vol­ley from 25-yards out.

Wits pushed num­bers for­ward, with the likes of Ngele and Si­fiso Myeni look­ing dan­ger­ous, although they strug­gled to carve out clear-cut chance.

The Clever Boys should have lev­elled mat­ters five min­utes be­fore the full-time whis­tle, but Bon­gani Khu­malo headed over the cross­bar from six-yards out.

Stu­art Bax­ter’s charges man­aged to see off a late charge from Wits to claim the win and will face High­lands Park in the fi­nal game of day. — Soc­cer Lad­uma
