Mushowani reach Yadah TV semi-finals

HARARE - Mushowani stormed into the semi-finals of Yadah TV Northern Region Super 8 tournament after beating Lake Harvest 3-1 at Nyamhunga Stadium on Saturday.

The Mashonaland Central-based team will now face Gunners, who beat Starbill 1-0 last weekend to sail through to the semi-finals.

Goals from Evans Katema, Davis Kamanga and Paul Chiramba were enough for Mushowani to book a place in the last four.

Mushowani coach Paul “Popopo” Chimalizeni said they are targeting win the inaugural Yadah TV cup title.

“We played well against Lake Harvest, and now our aim is to beat Gunners and sail through to the finals, like any other team our target is to win this Cup,” Chimalizeni told the Daily News yesterday.

“Yesterday (Saturday) we were on top of the situation from the onset. We should have scored more than three goals if we were able to utilise all of our chances.

“Our chances of winning this cup are very bright as you know that my team have strike the right chord, we are now back to winning ways which is good for the team.

“There has been unity of purpose within the team and I am happy players are fighting for each other and we hope to continue with that spirit to the end.”

With 10 games before the end of the season, Mushowani are currently on third position on the log standing and trail the log leaders Gunners by eight points.

Chimalizeni however, believes that their dream of winning promotion into the top flight league is still possible.

“Mathematically, we are still in the title race, there are still many games to play before the end of the season and we are still aiming to win the championship,” he said.

“The right thing is that the team has rediscovered its fine form. We need to remain focused and I told my boys that at this stage there is need take each game seriously and avoid complacency.”

Last season, Mushowani proved to be a force to reckon in their debut campaign and remain one of the firm favourites to clinch promotion into the Castle Premiership this season.
