Ngezi thrash hapless Yadah

Ngezi Platinum.........(3) 5

Yadah FC.......................0

HARARE – Log leaders Ngezi Platinum Stars maintained their perfect start to the 2018 Castle Lager Premiership with a loop-sided victory over Yadah FC at Baobab Stadium on Saturdday.

Madamburo, who have now won eight and drawn two of their first 10 matches, are now on 26 points, one ahead of second-placed FC Platinum.

Tonderai Ndiraya’s side opened the scoring after just 17 minutes through winger James Nguluve when he finished off a pass from Donald Teguru.

Midfielder Malon Mushonga increased the home side’s lead six minutes from the break after a pass from Tichaona Mabvura.

Terrence Dzvukamanja ensured a rout was on the cards when he added the third a minute later when Teguru picked up his second assist of the match.

Teguru, who was making his first start of the season, finally got onto the score sheet when he scored the fourth in the 56th minute as Yadah looked out of sorts.

Clive August completed the scoring for the home side when he netted in the second minute of added time.

With the defeat, Yadah remain in 10th place with 10 points and could be in for another relegation dog fight if they continue to perform in the same manner as yesterday.

Meanwhile, at Ascot Stadium, Nichrut ended their two-game losing streak by beating troubled Chapungu 1-0 in a Midlands derby at Ascot Stadium. With the win, the newly-promoted side moved into eighth place on the log with 12 points from 10 matches.

Chapungu, who have recalled Rodwell Dhlakama to be their technical advisor, are in 15th place on the log with eight points.

James Chivasa scored the all-important goal for the home side when he tapped in from close range after a goal-mouth scramble 16 minutes from full time.
