Tripple B hold CAPS

HARARE - Peter Manoti began life as Tripple B caretaker coach with an impressive draw against CAPS United at Mandava Stadium yesterday following the sacking of Friday Phiri on Wednesday.

 Tripple found back of the net through Simon Maengeni and Timire Mamvura while Ronald Pfumbidzai and Tendai Samanja scored for CAPS.

 The first half was a dull encounter with both teams resorting to pumping long balls upfront.

CAPS took the lead on the stroke of half time when Pfumbidzai scored directly from the corner kick, beating a badly-positioned Webster Chigwandaza in goals for Tripple B.

Tripple B came back rejuvenated in the second half and it was not long before they equalised through Maengeni on 51 minutes.

 Mamvura won the ball in CAPS’s half, beating a number of defenders before unleashing a grounder that Makepekepe goalkeeper Tafadzwa Dube fumbled, allowing Maengeni to tap in for his first goal of the season.

CAPS regained the lead in the 58th minute when Tendai Samanja hammered home from outside the box after substitute Dominic Chungwa provided the assist from the edge of the box. Again, Chigwandaza was badly-positioned.

However, Tripple B continued to pile pressure and managed to get the equaliser 10 minutes from time courtesy of a sublime Mamvura goal.

 Tripple B went on an attack and Maengeni squared the ball to Mamvura, who was lurking just outside the box. The former Dynamos midfielder blasted home into the far corner to register a contender for goal of the season. - Sports Writer
