Inline Academy hammered Mutare team Faith Drive 5-0 at Sakubva Stadium on Sunday to pile pressure on Women’s Football Super League log leaders Black Rhinos Queens.

Black Rhinos are on top of the log because of a superior goal difference.

Rejoice Kampfumvuti scored a hat-trick while Sfundile Moyo and Slibeni Moyo grabbed one each to hand Inline victory. Inline coach Shadreck Mlauzi was happy with the result although he blamed the team for failing to utilise many scoring chances.
“We faced resistance from Faith Drive, but because of our experience and quality in the team we managed to win.
“The team played well, but I felt that we could have scored many goals had the players not missed so many chances that came our way,” he said.
