FAZ DIV 1 WRAP: Storm Halts Kashikishi-Chambishi Game


Heavy rains in Nchelenge have forced match officials to stop the FAZ National Division 1 match involving Chambishi and Kashikishi Warriors in the 55th minute.

Promotion chasing Chambishi were leading 1-0 when match officials paused the round seven match at Mwaimwena Stadium on Thursday afternoon.

Jacob Kaunda put Chambishi in the driving seat seven minutes after the break.

The match will continue on Friday morning at 09h00.

‘There was a heavy downpour some minutes after we scored. The match will continue tomorrow at 09h00,’ Chambishi spokesperson Chali Katongo told LT Sport.
