ZPCS derby ends in draw

HARARE - The first Zimbabwe Prison Correctional Services derby in the Castle Premiership pitting Whawaha and Flame Lilly finished in a 1-1 draw here yesterday.

Both teams, who are owned by ZPCS are making their debut in the top flight league and could not be separated after 90 minutes.

Motion Muponda opened the scoring for the home side in the first half before Livingstone Genti equalised for Whawha lae in the second period.

Flame Lilly coach Lloyd Mutasa was left frustrated by the result after his side put on a splendid display by they could only walk away with one point.

“We were a better team in the second half but we missed several chances and we need to correct it in our next matches,” Mutasa said after the match.

“We respected our opponents much in the first half but we managed to claw back into the match in the second half but I think this draw will give my boys more confidence in our next matches.”

Flame Lilly coach Nesbert Saruchera was, however, happy with a draw.

“From the start, I knew this was going to be a difficult match but I am happy to collect our first point in the top flight league,” he said.

Flame Lilly started the match a better side and surged ahead as early as 16 minutes into the game after Muponda scored with a low shot.

The tempo increased in the second half with Whawha a rejuvenated side and they were duly rewarded when Genti scored nine minutes after the break.
