How Mine, Triangle share spoils

BULAWAYO - Triangle coach Kelvin Kaindu was left disappointed after his side failed to beat How Mine in an lunch-time kick-off here yesterday.

The Sugar Sugar Boys were clearly the better side and should have won this match by at least two goals.

Triangle hit the post twice during the course of play and wasted  other opportunities that could have given them maximum points.

The visitors could have opened the scoring in the first minute but Pasca Manhanga shot went over after being set by Cabby Kamhapa.

Lameck Nhamo missed another clear chance for Triangle when he sent his volley wide after he was set by Brian Juwayeyi.

Moments later, Manhanga failed to wasted a scoring chance one-on-one with How Mine keeper Munyaradzi Diya.

The former Highlanders midfielder rounded Diya and sent his effort crashing against the upright.

In the second-half, Triangle continued with their dominance but failed to turn it into goals.

The visitors could not only watch in agony, 10 minutes from time when Charles Rukwanhi unleashed a shot from long range that beat Diya but not the upright.

“The draw was not good for us. It is really sad two points that we have dropped. We created so many chances that we could have converted into goals,” Kaindu said.

“We hit the upright post twice and I just thought we were unfortunate. How Mine managed to beat us at home and we should have done the same. We played better than How Mine but we failed to win.”

How Mine coach Luke Masomere was content with a draw.

“We are there now after losing to Hwange and Highlanders then a draw away to ZPC Kariba,” he said.

“Today (yesterday) we had a draw, it is good that we are now starting to collect points. We played a better team and a draw is a fair result.

“My top strikers in the team only have two goals each. It is worrying and we have to work on our finishing. Our leading goal scorer is a midfielder and it’s a cause for concern.”
