Silver Strikers Reserve teach Luanar soccer lessons


Silver Strikers Reserve clobbered Luanar FC 4-1 in a Chipiku Stores Premier Division match at Silver Stadium on Saturday.

Frank Chizuze and Willard Tathendwa each scored a brace to hand the Leo Mpulula side valuable points.

This is the first maximum points for Silver Reserve, having shared spoils with Green Rangers in the first match.


Mpulula said his charges dominated the match but were still a team under construction.

“I am happy that the boys played according to my instructions. The team played as a unit and created many chances. The team is still work in progress,” he said.

Luanar Coach Miliasi Pofera said individual errors cost his side the match.


“Poor goalkeeping cost us the game. The result is not a true reflection of the game. Officiation also left a lot be desired. Easter Zimba failed to handle the game and that disturbed my players,” he said.

Man-of-the-match Lovemore Mbeta scored a brace, with the other goal coming from Christopher Mbototo, whereas Charles Mafaiti and Frank Banda were on target for the former TNM Super League side.
