Two second half goals by Webster Chingodza and Francis Kanda were all relegation-threatened Shooting Stars needed to beat a disjointed Blue Ribbon in a Castle Lager Premiership match at Motor Action Sports Club yesterday.
Chingodza scored in the 55th minute after heading home a long throw-in from enterprising right wing back Levison Banda.
Kanda capitalised on a defensive mix-up between Brighton Tuwaya and Clive Boroma to release Tigere Muparaganda whose effort was blocked by Blue Ribbon goalkeeper Tapiwa Zvaita and the rebound fell on the advancing Kanda who made no mistake and buried it home in the 80th minute.
The win will not see the Elite Boys moving an inch up the ladder as other relegation-fighting clubs which include Shabanie Mine and Masvingo United also won their matches, meaning the Wild Boys will remain rooted at position three from the bottom on 27 points.
Shabanie Mine beat Caps United 2-0 to move to 31 points on fourth position from the bottom while Masvingo United beat Highlanders 1-0 to amass a total of 34 points but still occupy fifth position from the bottom.
Blue Ribbon coach Misheck Chidzambwa castigated his charges and said his boys were not in it at all.
“We did not play football at all. They deserved to win because they utilised their chances; my boys were not in it at all,” Chidzambwa said.
