Ngezi fine form continues


Ngezi Platinum.............(1) 2

CHIREDZI - Ngezi Platinum Stars’ perfect start to the 2018 Castle Lager Premiership season continued yesterday when they beat Triangle at Gibbo Stadium.

The platinum miners got their goals from Clive Augusto and Xolisani Moyo and are now on six points from two games following their opening weekend 2-0 win over Herentals.

Utility player Michael Charamba, who picked up two assists in the win over the Students, was again in the thick of things notching his third of the season when he provided the final pass to Moyo’s goal.

Triangle could have got back into the match but Kudzai Chigwida had his penalty saved by Ngezi goalkeeper Donovan Bernard when the score was still 0-1.

Madamburo coach Tonderai Ndiraya was pleased with how his side adapted to the condition in Triangle before going onto claim the three points.

“It was a very difficult match in terms of the climatic conditions here in the Lowveld; a difficult match in terms of the chances we created and failed to convert,” Ndiraya said.

“I thought we were very much in control of the first half in fact of the match in general but we failed to put away the chances we created.

“We created about five or six good scoring chances but again I’m disappointed that we failed to put them away.”

Triangle coach Taurai Mangwiro was disappointed by the way his side wasted the good scoring chances they created.

This was the Sugar Sugar Boys’ second loss following their opening day 1-0 defeat to Shabanie Mine.

“We continue to drop points after losing to Shabanie we lost again today and worse now we are losing at home,” Mangwiro said.

“It was a game in which we were second best especially in the first half where I think our reaction was slow allowing Ngezi to dictate the pace."
