Zesco disconnect Power to win 2015 Charity Shield

Sports Zesco disconnect Power to win 2015 Charity Shield

Zesco United beat Power Dynamos 3-1 at Nkana Stadium in Kitwe on Saturday to lift the 2015 Samuel ‘Zoom’ Ndhlovu Memorial Charity Shield.

A brace from Kenyan defender David Odhiambo handed Zesco their third Charity Shield triumph in the Ndola clubs’ history.

Odhiambo, who joined Zesco in January from Kenyan champions Gor Mahia, headed in the games opening goal in the 31st minute off a John Chingandu corner.

Odhiambo completed his brace in the 71st minute when he nodded in another Chingangu corner.

Power cut Zesco’s lead in the 78th minute from the penalty spot when striker Felix Sunzu was brought down in the box.

Striker Alex Ngonga stepped up to convert the penalty to redeem himself after missing golden chances in the 13th and 17th minute of the first half.

However, Power’s hopes of a comeback were dashed in the 80th minute when defender Billy Mutale scored an own-goal to put the result beyond reach.

The win is a big boost for Zesco ahead of their 2015 CAF Champions League first round, first leg date at home on March 14 against AS Kaloum of Guinea in Ndola.

But bruised and wounded Power head for their 2015 Confederation Cup date away in Gabon next Sunday against CF Mounana with a lot of homework to do before that first round, first leg away match.
