Power 6 Mine Police 0-
POWER Dynamos maintained their tight grip at the summit of the MTN/FAZ Super League after annihilating Konkola Mine Police 6-nil at Arthur Davies Stadium in Kitwe yesterday.
Tenant Chilumba’s side matched the electric atmosphere provided by their fans at a packed Arthur Davies stadium to produce an entertaining match that they capped with six unanswered goals.
Alex Ng’onga put Power ahead in the 8th minute after finishing off a cross from Lubambo Musonda from outside the box before Jimmy Ndhlovu added the second in the 34th minute finishing off a rebound after Ngonga’s thumping shot came of the right angle of the post to see Power go 2-0 into the break.
The on-loan striker from Nkana made it 3-0 with another rebound in the 56th minute.
Ng’onga was then denied his second of the day in the 66th minute by referee Wellington Kaoma who erased his header for a foul on Mine Police goalkeeper Evans Chewe.
Two minutes later, Lubambo capped his dazzling display with Power’s fourth goal after firing in a sublime strike from outside the box.
Ngonga made no mistake in the 75th minute before Nyaende side-footed Mudenda’s corner to complete Power’s rout in added time.
Zesco 3 Rangers 1
Zesco United yesterday bounced back from their exit in the 2014 CAF Confederation Cup with an emphatic victory over Nchanga Rangers in this exciting Week Three fixture in Ndola, reports MOSES CHIMFWEMBE from Levy Mwanawasa Stadium.
Defender Bornwell Silengo opened the scores five minutes into the game and Maybin Mwaba doubled the lead with a superb finish from Mathews Nkowane’s cross in the 37th minute to go into the break with a comfortable 2-0 lead.
Patson Daka pulled one for the visitors in the 65th minute after heading in Nawa Nawa’s thunderbolt strike that came off the post and appeared to have crossed the line but Jackson Mwanza capitalised on the defensive lapses in the Rangers’ backline to seal the victory with a clinical finish on 84 minutes.
Assembly 3 Warriors 0
From Woodlands Stadium, SHAMAOMA MUSONDA reports that National Assembly recorded a momentous victory in a lopsided match that should leave the Kabwe Warriors fans worried after their side has only managed to collect just a point from a possible nine.
Assembly took the lead through Evans Kwanza in the eigth minute before their leading scorer Peter Mwangani doubled the lead in 36 minutes and Gift Lukwesa rubbed salt into Warriors bruised ego.
Roan 3 Buffaloes 4
Green Buffaloes yesterday finally struck the right code, winning a seven-goal thriller away at Roan United in Luanshya to pick up their first three points of the season, FELIX MALUNGA reports.
A brace by international midfielder, Felix Katongo and another strike from Felix Sunzu and Stephen Kabamba set Buffaloes on their first win of the season after three games.
Goals from Anos Tembo, Floyd Phiri and Tom Bakala were not enough to save coach Simonda Kaunda from being handed a third straight loss, leaving Roan on the basement of the table.
Yesterday’s loss left some irate Roan fans calling for an early dismissal of Kaunda.
Blades 1 Zanaco 2
Zanaco chalked up their second win of the season after beating Konkola Blades away in Chililabombwe yesterday.
Goals from Charles Zulu and Potipher Zulu gave Zanaco a well-deserved victory while Moses Phiri scored a consolation for Blades.
