Triangle reclaim top spot

TRIANGLE - Triangle continued with their trailblazing high scoring theme at Gibbo Stadium by thumping Whawha 6-0 to return to the top of the Castle Lager Premiership log table yesterday.

Kelvin Kaindu’s men now have 20 points together with Chicken Inn but the Sugar Sugar Boys have a superior goal difference.

Lameck Nhamo opened the scoring in the first minute when smashed in a Peter Muzondo long throw-in.

Praise Tonha then drilled home a second three minutes later as the sugarcane farmers ran riot.

Moments later, Triangle were already three goals up after Ronald Mudimu converted a penalty after a goal bound Nhamo was hacked down in a congested penalty box.

Zambian import Antony Sakala then scored the fourth six minutes from half time after he beat Phillip Nhete in goal for the visitors.

The hosts scored their fifth in the 63rd minute when Nhamo turned into provider for Manhanga to head home.

Malvern Gaki then made it six for Triangle when he volleyed home a deep cross from Manhanga 10 minutes from time.

Wha Wha Technical Director Lloyd Mutasa blamed the loss on his young squad saying they were drained after a busy week in which they beat Dynamos in their midweek fixture.

“The better team won and we conceded two quick goals in the early stages of the game. The youngsters then saw six goals coming their way,” he said.

Kaindu was happy that goals were coming from different players.

“It is good that we maintained the record of good scoring. The six goals came from different players and this shows an element of team work,” he said.

“We want to set a standard when we are at our home ground. This type of play makes our concern heard when we complain over bad playing pitches we encounter during away games.”
