Without Tadious Manyepo
The hard-hitting of Ngezi Platinum Stars for Bulawayo Headteachers in Baobab yesterday was vain because they still had to cope with being weddings and the Premier League after their competitors in the race. Platinum FC extended the title with a victory at Shabanie Mine.
Marlon Mushonga and Michael Charamba scored the second half of goals that secured victory at home at home.
However, he was always going to take some sort of miracle for the Mondoro excavators to win the crown given that they have surrendered for a long time the fate of their title hopes for other teams.
The victory yesterday, however, was the first for an interim coach Clifton Kadurira who had removed his first two games with care to transfer the enterprise effectively to FC Platinum.
Ngezi needed to win, they did, and pray that FC Platinum was losing to keep some definite hopes of winning the Premier League.
But that was always hoping for a distance given in the form of a rampant FC Platinum.
Kadurira had explained some confidence that the unlikely event would take place after a yesterday's round of games but at the end of his day Donde gave "Umbro" Muzadzi a credit to FC Platinum for their continued effort that saw them wrapping & # 39; r title with two games to spare.
"We always believe that we would win the title but after this we just congratulated FC Platinum for congratulating Zimbabwe football kings.
"We did our best to win the league. I give credit to the executive, the players and the supporters for carrying out their duties well." Muzadzi said.
"FC Platinum had taken the opportunity when we had dropped points in our last two games but we will continue to fight to reduce the point deficit between us and us.
"We also wanted to be champions but I do not think that the second situation is bad for a three year club in the open air.
"There are some teams that are seven or eight years old but have failed to achieve even a top four finish.
"Congratulations to the team and everyone else about the successful campaign we have received this year," said Muzadzi.
Muzadzi said his club, who started the season as a fireplace, had lost the plot when they allowed them to be beaten by the "small teams".
"Yes, we started the season well but we lost it when we missed the so-called small teams.
"But, on the whole, we could not put our heads down, we played well to be a second while we wanted to win the championship." The forces were caused in the first half, failing to tune even three consecutive tracks.
The weak performance of Bulawayo Chiefs in the same period did not help either because the boring conditions in Ngezi seemed to take a hole on the players. Ngezi forced their action to re-start and reach 10 minutes into the half when Mushonga hit a cross headed in the line by Donald Teguru.
Bulawayo, who is not yet safe from the red, has tried to catch their way back to the game but George Mikaika's free kick lost the target with Chikwende Perfect also coming to ben. The raiders were stretching their lead with the Xolisani Moyo riding his way past a serious defense of the Headmaster to install a pass on the Charamba route that had the easiest tasks to let the crossing ball & the line.
For someone who had lost several opportunities to register his name on the scoring sheet, including one against one position with the chairman of Headteachers David Bizabani in the first half, his wild celebration was understandable.
Principal's coach, Garthly Chipuka, who "blamed" somewhere to concentrate "by his defenders stays promptly, his team will survive the axle.
They are 13 on the log, with 38 points, five above the drop-in zone with two remaining games.
His allegations face Highlanders and ZPC Kariba in their final games while Ngezi goes out to restore some pride against FC Platinum in their next assignment before arriving at the case for the season with a home against the Black Rhinos army.
