GBFC down Kitwe United


Promoted side Kitwe United on Sunday kicked off the 2018 FAZ Super Division campaign with a 2-0 homes loss to Green Buffaloes at Garden Park Stadium.

Chingalika had held Buffaloes to a goalless draw in the first half before collapsing just after the break.

Forward Youremember Banda put Buffaloes in front five minutes after the break before Aubrey Chella doubled the Soldier’s lead seven minutes later.

Kitwe tried harder to come back into the game with last minute attempts from strikers Emmanuel Chabula and Emmanuel Kalala missing the target by inches.

It was a game of two halves with Kitwe stealing the first half while Buffaloes controlled the last half.

The Buchi Boys were playing their first top league match since 2006.

Meanwhile, a huge crowd watched this match with security struggling to control fans entry into the stadium.

  1. @Dr Ngosa spot on. Good start let’s hope it’s not another false start.we are behind you power .2018 season must not be work as usual

  2. Terrible beginning ba Buchi boys. Watch out you could end up going the entire season without scoring. When you get promoted you need investment. You cant rely on the team that got you promoted
