Moto Moto crowned Div 2 champs

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport - To­bias Man­doreba in Hwange

ARMY side Moto Moto have been crowned Zifa Mata­bele­land North Divi­sion Two cham­pi­ons af­ter dis­miss­ing a stub­born Hot­spurs Leop­ards 2-0 at Ra­ly­ton ground in Dete.

Goals by Me­nard Manye­vere and Wil­lard Bem­benene en­sured Fredy Mu­dado’s boys took their points tally to an unas­sail­able 58 to win pro­mo­tion into the Zifa South­ern Re­gion Divi­sion One for 2017.

Zifa Mata­bele­land North chair­per­son Den­nis Tshuma con­grat­u­lated Moto Moto and in­di­cated that there was still one other pro­mo­tion slot.

“I would like to con­grat­u­late Moto Moto for be­ing crowned cham­pi­ons this year, but there is another slot, as two teams are get­ting au­to­matic pro­mo­tion into Divi­sion One next year and that will be de­cided af­ter the last round of matches,” said Tshuma.

This means sec­ond-placed Vic­to­ria Falls-based Mosi Rovers, who suf­fered a huge set­back last week when they were docked three points for us­ing an un­reg­is­tered player, have to pre­vail over ri­vals Ama­ga­gasi Un­der-19 in their tricky derby, as they are tied on 54 points with Baobab Rovers, but en­joy a healthy goal dif­fer­ence.

Rovers ham­mered Iwisa 3-1 away at Lwen­dulu Old Ground in Hwange and they look set to join Moto Moto in Divi­sion One next sea­son bar­ring any drama. Rovers won’t have it easy in the last game, as they square up against tricky Hot­spurs Leop­ards at home.

In­gag­ula FC ham­mered Clas­sic Luyando 4-1 with reg­u­lar scorer Wayne Shumba’s hat trick and a goal by Tapiwa Kan­jun­juma author­ing the rout. Phi­lani Mthombeni grabbed the face saver for vis­it­ing Luyando.

Black­rock FC pulled off the shock of the week­end at Chino­timba Sta­dium in Vic­to­ria Falls by edg­ing Ama­ga­gasi Un­der-19 1-0, with a clas­sic Gideon Mako­tose header un­der­lin­ing the head­line win.

On Sun­day, vis­i­tors Lukhosi Pi­rates edged home side and prison out­fit Tenex FC 1-0 with Moses Khu­malo’s goal enough to shock Tenex, who are al­ways hard to beat at home.

Tru­mus War­riors got three points af­ter walk­ing over trou­bled Corinthi­ans on a 3-0 score line. — @ to­by­man­dox.
