Nkana beat stubborn Napsa Stars to maintain unbeaten start

Sports Nkana beat stubborn Napsa Stars to maintain unbeaten start

Nkana posted their first win of the 2019 FAZ Super Division season after rallying to overcome Napsa Stars 3-1 in a midweek rescheduled match at home in Kitwe.

Goals from Freddy Tshimenga, Kelvin Mubanga and Simon Bwalya sealed the win as Nkana joined Buildcon at the top of Pool B of the transitional season with four points from two matches.

Napsa made a false start when Eric Yema beat the poorly erected Nkana offside trap to put the visitors in the lead after 10 minute.

Tshimenga equalised nine minutes later when tapping in a Kelvin Mubanga pass as the two teams went to the break with a 1-1 scoreline.

Nkana went up 2-1 in the 75th minute with Mubanga as the scorer after being set up by Ronald Kampamba.

80th minute substitute Simon Bwalya put the scores beyond Napsa’s reach with a fine header one minute into stoppage time.

Bwalya had replaced Sate Sate prior to scoring.

The win is expected to relieve Nkana after Sunday night’s 2-0 CAF Confederation Cup loss at Zesco United in Ndola.
