Zesco held, Power end winless drought

Sports Zesco held, Power end winless drought

Zesco United were denied an away win by Green Eagles while Power Dynamos ended their month-long winless drought.

In Choma, Zesco squandered their lead twice to finish 2-2 away to Eagles.

The defending champions shift slightly to 60 points following the draw in their quest to retain the FAZ Super Division title.

Cletus Chama put Zesco ahead in the 7th minute but Eagles stunned the visitors in stoppage time of the first half when Mathews Tembo leveled scores.

Zesco coach George Lwandamina wasn’t very pleased with the equalizer but found himself on the wrong end of the law with a sent-off shortly thereafter.

Midfielder Mwape Mwelwa calmed Zesco’s nerves when he put the Ndola side back into the lead in the 47th minute but another stoppage time equalizer this time from a Mwelwa Phiri struck a free kick saw the two sides share the spoils.

At Arthur Davies Stadium in Kitwe, Power won their first league since beating Nkana 2-1 at the same venue on August 29.

A superbly struck thundering strike from Benson Sakala in the 40th minute and cheeky chipped ball over Assembly goalkeeper Sebastian Mwenge by Larry Bwalya in the 45th minute secured Power the 3 points.

Power are now nine points behind Zesco on 51 and 60 points respectively with four games left to play.

However, Power will drop back to third on Sunday if Zanaco, on 50 points, beat or draw with Konkola Blades at Sunset Stadium in Lusaka.


  1. What an article! For a person who doesn’t have the fixtures, how do they know who Power Dynamos played against? No mention of the opponent at ALL!!! Yaaaa…..
