Buildcon’s campaign for their first ever victory against ZESCO United was on Saturday thwarted again when the Ndola based team lost two goals to nil in the ABSA cup.
ZESCO has proved superior to Buildcon ever since the latter was promoted to the super division. Buildcon views very encounter against the ‘team ya ziko’ side as an opportunity to claim their first ever victory. But that chance was upset again on Saturday when the two squared up in the ABSA cup, a match which saw ZESCO achieve the obvious. Buildcon will seek another opportunity while ZESCO advances to the final.
In a different encounter however, ZANACO beat Green Eagles on post-match penalties to advance to the final of the competition. Edward Mwamba opened the scoring for Green eagles in the 13th minute but the favourites failed to hold on to their lead as Zanaco’s Ernest Mbewe found the back of the net to make it 1-1 in the 36th minute. The second half was a rather dull affair with neither able to take the initiative, leading to a penalty shootout which Zanaco won.
