Nkana silenced, Monze swallowed

MATHEWS KABAMBA, Nkana Stadium, Kitwe
ZESCO United yesterday put their title defence back on track after overcoming Nkana in a thrilling Super Division Week Five match that left coach Beston Chambeshi regretting dropping points in the last two matches.
Jesse Were was the hero of the day after breaking Nkana’s hearts in the 65th minute.
International forward Lazarus Kambole set up Were, who beat goalkeeper Kelvin Malunga with a cracker as Zesco revenged the 4-3 defeat to Nkana in the Samuel ‘Zoom’ Ndhlovu Charity Shield final played on March 10 in Lusaka.
