CAPS wallop sorry How Mine

HARARE - Lloyd Chitembwe’s hope is that, at the end of this season, his CAPS United side would be considered a side worthy of a top four finish and he is slowly realising his wish.

Yesterday, the Green Machine put in a splendid second half display to wallop How Mine in a Caste Lager Premiership match yesterday.

In the first half of the season, Makepekepe failed to play against yesterday’s opponents amid all the anarchy that haunted their camp resulting in the match being cancelled.

But yesterday’s occasion was genuinely moving and it was more about CAPS getting over their opponents than anything else and they did just that in style.

It was Dominic Chungwa, who by his standards did not enjoy the most auspicious opening first half, but grew stronger and more confident and scored an impressive second half hat-trick to carry the day for United.

For the first, Chungwa got to the end of a loose ball to sweep clean in Donovan Bernard’s goal.

The second one was even classier as United skipper Moses Muchenje beat a cluster of How Mine defenders before squaring for Chungwa to score.

Chungwa would get the match ball after picking himself up after being fouled inside the area to beat Bernard for the third time from the spot.

With yesterday’s result, United remain in fifth place with 42 points, one point behind fourth-placed Triangle who drew 0-0 with Chapungu at Ascot Stadium.

CAPS coach Chitembwe said: “I think this victory is good for the boys and their confidence.

“We are now looking forward to our next game against FC Platinum.

“It will be a massive game for both of us because they want to win the league and we also want to maintain our respectability in the league.”

How Mine coach Jerry Makota said: “I think it’s fatigue that affected us today.

“We lost fairly and it was a bad day for us and now we look forward to our next games.

“We will push the boys to do well in the next games, we have to work as a team and get positive results.”
