Mosi Rovers se­cure Div 1 pro­mo­tion

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

MOSI Rovers FC stormed into the Zifa South­ern Re­gion Divi­sion One league af­ter edg­ing town ri­vals Ama­ga­gasi Un­der-19 2-1 at Chino­timba Sta­dium on the final day of the Zifa Mat North Divi­sion Two league last Sun­day.

The race to de­cide the sec­ond team to be pro­moted had to be de­cided on the last day.

Mosi will now join Baobab Rovers who were pro­moted on a tech­ni­cal­ity.

It is be­lieved that Moto Moto prin­ci­pals said they can­not have two teams in the league as that will be too stren­u­ous on their bud­get.

Moto Moto is an army out­fit which al­ready has Indlovu Iyany­athela.

Rovers pre­vailed through goals by Leib Chiyoko and Mun­yaradzi Muchenje with Glad­more Mkandla get­ting the goal for Ama­ga­gasi Un­der-19.

At Megawatt Ground, Baobab Rovers scored through Mil­ton Mtungwa with Mado­dana Lunga’s last minute gasp equaliser damp­en­ing the home team’s spir­its.

Moto Moto capped the sea­son in style with a 2-0 win over Tenex FC thanks to goals by Wil­lard Bem­benene and Nkosiyazi Sibanda.

At Lwen­dulu Old Ground, Hwange Un­der-17 ended the sea­son with smiles af­ter thump­ing arch ri­vals Black­rock 3-1 with goals by Proud Mu­leya, Ri­valdo Chuma and Kudzai Matanda mak­ing all the dif­fer­ence.

Vet­eran mid­fielder Gideon Mako­tose grabbed the con­so­la­tion goal for Black­rock.

A re­sort town derby be­tween Tru­mus War­riors and Clas­sic Luyando ended 2-0 in favour of Luyando courtesy of goals by Craig Mab­hena and Bril­liant Mab­hena.

At Lukhosi Ground, hosts Lukhosi Pi­rates sur­pris­ingly and in an un­char­ac­ter­is­tic man­ner, blew a 3-0 lead gained through goals by Moses Khu­malo (brace) and Alexis Mun­saka to draw 3-3 with In­gag­ula FC who clawed back through a Wayne Shumba brace and an­other by De­light Dh­lamini.

Trou­bled Iwisa fi­nally got the “first win” of the sea­son and three points to their name, al­beit with­out kick­ing a ball af­ter walk­ing over Corinthi­ans on a 3-0 score line.

The team had only gar­nered four points, from four draws through­out the en­tire sea­son. @to­by­man­dox.
