Zambia Super League

Battered! Zanaco beaten to a pulp as the Wusakili caravan move on.


Yes something strange is happening at Sunset in Lusaka getting chocked near the end of the race and in the similar vein something strange is also happening with the Wusakili caravan dusting its path.

The Zambia Superleague this Afternoon spiraled into a whirlwind of mind-blowing intrigue when Buildcon ran riots to batter second-placed ZANACO to a pulp in a 4-0 Baptism by fire.

The MTN super league week 25 rescheduled clash of the titans was highly rated and it lived to its billing.

The match opened on a quick lightning note with Abas scoring off a flamboyant shin twister from Brian Mwila.

Nine minutes into the game, Buildcon was already running away with it when Chisha finished off a Conlyde Luchanga pass to send ZANACO on some hypersonic needles of panic.

The bankers threw everything at Buildcon with Moses Phiri and Chisamba Lungu playing tormentor in chief but it was Buildcon who stamped a seal of Authority in the 52nd minute when Conlyde Luchanga ran into an Abash cross to smash the ball past Mangani Banda with vicious emphasis.

ZANACO would have pulled one back three minutes later but Baba Basile’s finish was ruled offside.
ZANACO kept pushing for some dignity but the introduction of Patrick Ngoma brought some waves of renewed harrasment on their defence as Ngoma kept bullying the ZANACO back four and his efforts paid in the 78th minute when he pounced on a goal mouth scramble to score Buildcons Fourth of the day from Close range.


In another week 25 rescheduled fixture played at Nkoloma, Nkana’s fine form and subsequent escape from relegation continued when the defending Champions beat Red Arrows to polish their chances of survival.

It was Red Arrows who struck first through Kayembe in the 66th minute but their joy was short lived as Nkana restored Parity two minutes later. Sutra Tshimenga employed some high tech sense of anticipation and instinct when he slided a lose ball into the Arrows net from close range.

The match then went into hibernation as the two teams battled for territorial control in the midfield. The match was heading into a stales mate but four minutes before time, Nkana forced a rapture. A scramble on the Red Arrows goal mouth saw Kampamba out jump the Arrows defenders to fend a header into the path of Alex Ng’onga who smashed it into the net to score his fifth goal of the season and third in four matches.

Nkana will meet ZANACO at Chilata stadium in Kitwe on saturday in another cracker that promises fire works.
