LUSAKA 45 PRISONS 3
‘POWERHOUSE’ Lusaka on Saturday closed in on leaders and reigning champions ‘Men at Work’ Diggers when they trounced Prisons in the Buildcon National Rugby League (NRL) Week 10 match in Lusaka.
Lusaka posted seven tries and one conversion to move to 27 points, 17 behind leaders Diggers.
Michelo Shelleni placed three tries with Oscar Bwalya adding two while Jacon Musukwa and Charles Kafwimbi scored one try apiece.
Prisons, who have only recorded one victory over Mufulira since the start of the season, got their consolation through Peter Mukosa’s drop goal.
DIGGERS 21 ROAN 0 (walkover)
Diggers enhanced their chances of retaining the title after being awarded another walkover victory over Roan.
Roan failed to make the trip to Kitwe for the match.
The Kitwe giants were also awarded free points last Saturday following Mufulira’s failure to travel to Kitwe for a Week Nine fixture.
Diggers have moved to 44 points.
BUFFALOES 0 MUFULIRA 5
Mufulira had a fruitful outing to Lusaka when they stunned Green Buffaloes.
This is Mufulira’s second victory of the season.
In the other match, Red Arrows laboured to complete a double over Green Eagles winning 3-0. The airmen beat Eagles 25-3 in the reverse fixture in Kabwe.
