Lumwana reclaim super division top slot

Lumwana Radiants continued their quiet and unbeaten run in the 2017 FAZ Super Division season when they reclaimed top spot of the table.

Lumwana, who made their top-flight debut in 2016 and survived demoted by finishing outside the bottom four in 14th place, drew 1-1 at home win Konkola Blades to go one point clear of the table.

The two sides went into the break scoreless before Simon Nkhata put Lumwana ahead in the 51st minute.

But Tapson Kaseba equalised for Blades in the 83rd minute to see the two sides share the points.

Lumwana rise to 11 points, one more than Zesco United who drop to third following Saturday’s 1-0 away loss at Napsa Stars.

And defending champions Zanaco moved to second pushing Zesco down to number three after a 4-1 home win over Nakambala Leopards at the National Heroes Stadium in Lusaka.

Saith Sakala headed in the first goal in the 45th minute to put Zanaco 1-0 into the break before new signing boy Felix Nyaende fired in his debut goal in the 54th minute Kennedy

Musonda added the third goal six minutes later and Richard Kasonde made it 4-0 in the 63rd minute.

Ignatius Lwipa scored Nakambala’s consolation in the 76th minute.

Zanaco have 10 points tied with Zesco but with a better goal difference.

Nakambala are fourth from bottom after the away loss in 17th place on 4 points from five matches played.

In the lunchtime kickoff at the same venue, Lusaka Dynamos recorded their first league win of the season after a 3-1 home win over Red Arrows.

Simon Mulenga put Dynamos ahead in the 15th minute before Ackim Mumba equalised in the 57th minute.

But Chris Mugalu hit a brace after converting his first from the penalty spot in the 74th and later headed in Cletus Chama’s corner in the 79th minute.

Dynamos rise from 18th to 15th on 6 points while Arrows stay 11th on similar number of points.
