Chapungu maintain fine run

HARARE – Chapungu made a bold statement on their intent to return to the Castle Premiership next year after they demolished Gaths Mine 5-1 at Ascot Stadium over the weekend.

With the Central Region Division One League now approaching the decisive second half, Chapungu have been in merciless form scoring nine goals in the last two games.

The Air Force side, who are still to taste defeat in 14 matches, walloped Silo United 4-0 last week before putting up another stellar show on Saturday when they destroyed Gaths.

Chapungu coach John Nyikadzino was happy for maintaining the unbeaten run which he says will help boost the team’s morale and also send shivers down the spine of their promotion rivals.

“I am happy that everything is going according to our pre-season plan and this is helping boost our chances of winning the title every day,” Nyikadzino told the Daily News.

“The last two games were tricky ones because the teams are not predictable but we managed to overcome that and we are now looking forward to our next game.”

Midlands State University, who had breathed life into the promotion race, are slowly drifting away from the chase after losing 2-0 to Tongogara.

FC Platinum Under-19 lost at home to Silo United, who managed to atone for their embarrassing defeat to Chapungu last week.

New Town United coach John Phiri guided his team to an emphatic 4-0 win over Chrome Stars, underlining his intention of mounting a serious challenge to Chapungu’s promotion charge.

Former Premiership side Hardbody won the battle of strugglers beating Kwekwe Pirates 3-0 while NM Academy got the better of Jessie Mine 3-0.

Results: Chapungu 5  Gaths Mine 1; Tongogara 2 Midlands State University 0; FC Platinum 1 Silo United 2; Town United 4 Chrome Stars 0; NM Academy 3 Jessie Mine 0; Kwekwe Pirates 0 Hardbody 3.
