CAPS end season on a high

HARARE - CAPS United ended their 2015 Castle Lager Premiership season on a high note after they beat relegated Whawha here yesterday.

Whawha were the first to score through Nelson Mazivisa, while, a first half brace from Dominic Chungwa and a second half goal from Joel Ngodzo were enough for the Green Machine to finish their season on fifth position on the log standings with 46 points.

Whawha started the match a better side and were duly rewarded as early as seven minutes into the game after Mazivisa won the ball inside the box before firing a shot past CAPS United goalkeeper Jorum Muchambo.

After the goal Makepekepe started to claw back into the match and in the 38th minute Chungwa opened the doors for CAPS after he scored through a penalty.

Chungwa was brought down inside the box by defender Silvester Nhamo leaving the referee with no option but to award the penalty to the visitors.

Five minutes later Chungwa completed his brace after he headed in Phineas Bamusi’s cross.

After the breather the tempo increased slightly, with CAPS the better side, dominating the exchanges with their recently discovered passing game.

Inform midfielder Ngodzo, who was the best player of the day for CAPS, scored the third after he received a cross from Chungwa inside the box before beating Whawha goalkeeper Philip Nhete with a spectacular shot.

After the match CAPS United coach Lloyd Chitembwe said he was delighted by the performance of his charges. “I am happy with the result, the guys played well, we controlled the whole game,” said Chitembwe.

“We cannot talk about our targets for next season, now the season has officially ended; I want the boys to take their well-deserved rest.”

Whawha coach Lloyd Mutasa is hopeful that his team will bounce back to the top flight league next season.

“It’s unfortunate that we are going to play in division one next season, but we are hoping to return to the premiership next season,” said Mutasa.
