(Chapungu won 5-3 on penalties)

AIRFORCE side Chapungu booked their place in the next stage of the Chibuku Super Cup with a battling penalty shoot-out elimination of Mutare City.

The match had ended 2-2 after regulation time and needed penalties to decide the winner. Chapungu’s five takers converted their spot-kicks, these being Osborne Mukuradare, Edmore Muzanenhamo, Xolisani Ncube, Maxwell Mavuto and Tapiwa Kumbuyani.

Kumbulani Njovo missed for Mutare City while the trio of Jeffrey Takunda, Piniel Gumbo and Brian Chinhoyi converted.

Vialli Tadzoka and Jeffrey Takunda scored for Mutare City while the duo of Brighton Mugoni and Muzanenhamo scored in normal time for Chapungu.

The Gweru-based side will meet league defending champions FC Platinum in the next round. Coach Rodwell Dhlakama had said his charges will push hard to win the all inclusive cup competition but his work seems cut-out after booking a date with the miners.

At the final whistle he was happy with progression and was confident of registering another shock win over Norman Mapeza’s men like they did last year.

“I am happy we managed to book a place in the next stage of the tournament, what delights us even more is that we gave other players a chance and they did well. Now we face FC Platinum in the next round and history has a tendency of repeating itself,” said Dhlakama.
