Flame Lilly wallop DStv

HARARE - Flame Lilly yesterday took a huge step towards promotion into the Castle Premiership after putting DStv Rangers to the sword with a 4-1 defeat here yesterday.

The World Navi Northern Region Division One Soccer League log leaders kept themselves within a point ahead of second placed Yadah Gunners, who beat Starbill 2-0 at Rufaro Stadium yesterday courtesy of a McDonald Motsi brace.

Here, Edwin Magananga thrust Flame Lilly ahead in the first half before Kudakwashe Manuwere equalized for DStv.

However, second half goals from Webster Muronda, Prosper Chinyama and an own goal saw the Zimbabwe Prison Services side maintain their one point advantage.

With four games to go before the season ends, the results pitting the league’s top contenders now set to give fans a fever pitch ending.

Flame Lilly assistant coach Masimba Mutami was, however, not reading too much into the implications of the outcome, urging his players to keep their heads between their shoulders.

“We are still fighting they are still four games to go but I am happy we played well. We played well it was a difficult match but in the second half we were more superior,” Mutami said.

“This result has enhanced our chances but we have to remain calm.”

Elsewhere, Gunners coach Kudakwashe Masarure was happy to see his side pickup maximum points against a fighting Starbill.

The Gunner coach said his team was confident of retaking the lead in games to come.

“Promotion is ours they can go ahead but we will catch up. If you look it we are a church team and this is year taking over and I believe we are going to take over. Our form is not going o go down I believe we will take the league,” he said.
