Unstoppable Chiefs march on

BULAWAYO - SOUTHERN Region division one pacesetters Bulawayo Chiefs thrashed New West 4-1 to maintain their stranglehold on pole position in an ill-tempered encounter at the weekend.

New West never recovered from a horrendous first quarter of the game in which they conceded from the penalty spot and then had their defender Zibusiso Hadebe sent off in controversial circumstances.

The Majika brothers Moses and George, Emmanuel Ndebele and Trevor Nkomo were on target for Chiefs while New West’s face saver came from Mkhululi Dube.

Chiefs moved to 31 points from 12 matches while second placed Black Boots maintained the six – point gap between the two teams with a 3 -0 victory over Mkhosana.

Tashinga Mungadze, Leeroy Ndlovu and Junior Takavarasha scored for the police outfit while Tinashe “T-Boy” Dube also deserves mention for creating the second and third goals.

Lizwe Sweswe’s Tsholotsho moved up to sixth position on the log after collecting maximum points at home to Ntabazinduna.

Former Highlanders and Hardbody player Kudzi Machazane converted a ferocious free-kick for Tsholotsho who are now on 19 points from 12 matches.

Former top-flight side Bantu Rovers suffered yet another setback when they lost in controversial circumstances to Hwange Juniors in Hwange.

Justin Kaunda scored a contentious first half penalty to condemn Rovers to their fifth loss of the season.

Results: Hwange 1 Bantu Rovers 0, ZPC Hwange 5  Rufaro Rovers 1, Byo Chiefs 4 New Wes1, Tsholotsho 1 Ntabazinduna 0, Black Boots 3 Mkhosana 0, Quelaton 0 Mpumalanga 3, Technosphere 2 Zimbabwe Saints 0. - Sakheleni Nxumalo
