Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport - Allen Khu­malo Sports Re­porter

LAD­UMA FC clinched the Bu­l­awayo Am­a­teur Foot­ball As­so­ci­a­tion (Bafa) League ti­tle af­ter be­ing awarded three points when Seven War­riors failed to turn up for their fix­ture at Bar­bour­fields out­side grounds yes­ter­day.

The points saw them earn­ing the pro­mo­tional ticket into Divi­sion Three next sea­son.

With just one game re­main­ing in the sea­son, Lad­uma are top­ping the ta­ble with 73 points while near­est ri­vals Rebels are on 69 points fol­lowed by Cru­saders with 47 points.

Their last match will be against Nga Chron­i­cle who are 13th on the league ta­ble.

Lad­uma coach Do­minick Sibanda said it is fit­ting his side won the ti­tle.

“This is a big mo­ment for us as a team and it is truly fit­ting that we were crowned cham­pi­ons. The boys were re­mark­ably con­sis­tent and ef­fi­cient through­out the sea­son. I’m truly im­pressed with the way the team has gone about ev­ery game we played. They are truly de­serv­ing cham­pi­ons,” he said.

“The pos­si­bil­ity of writ­ing our own piece of his­tory is what pushed us this far. We pre­pared very hard and I guess all the hard work paid off. It’s so sad that our op­po­nents couldn’t make it to the match be­cause we wanted to in­crease our goal tally,” Sibanda said.

Lad­uma joined the Bafa League this year and they have made a re­mark­able run in the com­pe­ti­tion go­ing as far as reach­ing the Town­shend and Butcher fi­nal where they lost 0-2 to com­pe­ti­tion favourites Rebels FC.

In other matches, Eleven Stars thrashed Se­curico 10-3 while SBC Fal­cons were awarded three points for their fix­ture against ex­pelled Madamara FC. —
