Sports FAZ PREMIER LEAGUE WEEK 9 MATCH REPORTS

KABWE WARRIORS 1- ZANACO 0.

Zanaco lost their first league game of the season this afternoon away to Kabwe Warriors by 1-0.

But the defeat does little to change Zanaco’s status at the summit of the table after Young Arrows too lost today at home against Nchanga Rangers.

A 55th minute goal from Maonga Kabuku gave Warriors their first home league triumph

over Zanaco since September 14, 2002 when they beat their guests 3-1 at Railway Ground on that date.

Warriors stay 5th despite their victory in this midlands derby but shift from 12 to 15 points, one behind leaders Zanaco.

YOUNG ARROWS 0- NCHANGA RANGERS 2.

Nchanga Rangers returned to winning ways after two successive league defeats with a 2-0 away win over high-flying promoted club Young Arrows at Nkoloma stadium in Lusaka to deny their hosts a chance to return to the top of the table after Zanacos loss away to Warriors today.

Striker Lyson Sikaonga scored his 5th goal of the season with the opener in the 14th minute.

Ex-Mufulira Wanderers defender Justin Kunda made sure of the points four minutes before the opening half-hour mark to keep Rangers in 7th spot.

CITY OF LUSAKA 1- FOREST RANGERS 0.

Zambia Under 23 striker Mazuba Mukandawire record his 5th goal of the season that handed City of Lusaka their first win after two consecutive draws today when they beat visiting Forest Rangers 1-0 at Woodlands stadium.

Forest are yet to record a league win this season and are 2nd from bottom on 5 points after eight matches played.

NAKAMBALA LEOPARDS 2- NATIONAL ASSEMBLY 0.

Nakambala Leopards notched their third home win of the season to move from 13th to 10th and out of the relegation zone after a 2-0 victory over fellow strugglers National Assembly FC in Mazabuka.

Lazati Njombo and Ken Mwaba scored the vital goals to help raise Nakambala out of the drop-zone.

DIVISION 1 NORTH WEEK 8 WRAP-UP.

Nkana maintained the one hundred percent run since the start of the season today after they beat local rivals Kitwe United 3-1 in a thrilling derby played at Wusakile stadium.

The fallen record 11-time Zambia top-flight champions remain unbeaten for an 8th successive league match.

Nkana are on 24 points from 8 matches and in the process have opened up an 8-point gap between themselves and three other clubs concertinaed on 16 points.

However, the result over financially-troubled United who were relegated from the top flight last season was not a true reflection of matters on the pitch.

United matched their host in almost all but attack where the Garden Park side were out totally of their depth and must find a quality striker fast when the transfer window opens in July.

But that didn’t stop United from taking the early lead when Freegone Kaunda fired them ahead in the 5th minute.

Then a ghost from United’s recent past in the form of their DR Congo-born ex-striker Patrick Kabamba returned to haunt them when he headed in a Mark Sinyangwe free kick six minutes later.

Kabamba added another, again with a header, this time benefiting from a cross from his fellow former United team mate William Chinse in the 58th minute.

Chinse and Kabamba both joined Nkana in the off-season from United.

Chinse rubbed further salt into United’s wounds from the spot just two minutes before full-time after defender Ben Chola had handled the ball.

Nkana meanwhile are now the only undefeated side in division 1 north today after 2nd placed Lime Hotspurs lost 1-0 away in Mufulira to Muchindu who swap places from 3rd to 2nd place-both sides are on 16 points.

INDENI are 4th are a 1-0 away win over 3rd from bottom fallen giants Mufulira Wanderers at Shinde.

Chambishi FC continue their race up the log and are 5th on 15 points after a 2-1 home win over Ndola United this afternoon and have now won all their last four league games.

In Sunday other results, Afrisports were 3-0 winners at home over Konkola Mine Police, Chindwin beat Police Blue Eagles 5-0 in the biggest win of the day while Prison Leopards beat Medical Stars 1-0 in Ndola.

Kalewa were 2-0 victors in Ndola over Mufulira Blackpool whose momentum is fading after a bright start to their campaign.
