Magical Antonio propels DeMbare . . .as Tenax burst Caps bubble


ZIMBABWE Prisons and Correctional Services outfit Tenax put up a polished second half performance to comeback from behind and wrest three points from Caps United at Sakubva Stadium yesterday.

For Caps, this defeat saw them dropping to seventh position on the log standings while Tenax moved upwards to eleventh, with 12 points on their tally.

The victory also moved the team past Harare City and Herentals who lost to ZPC Kariba and Yadah, respectively on Saturday.

The Harare giants, though, came into the game as favourites having been on fire in recent assignments.

In-form striker William Manondo thrust the Green Machine ahead as early as the 10th minute, a lead they held at the break.

However, Tenax came into the second half supercharged and the exciting Joel Munsaka equalised on the 49th minute, with Takunda Mapara’s goal 20 minutes later sealing the game for the prison wardens.

Tenax coach Shadreck Magurasave was satisfied with the result, although he expressed concern over his side’s defending.

“It was a good game from both sides. While we managed to utilise our chances, I am worried about our defence because we conceded silly goals in the first 10 minutes. I am worried about the defenders,” he said.

“Going forward, we will prepare as usual whether we are playing Caps, Dynamos or Harare City, we don’t change our programme. This is an important result, I am happy considering that we are still building this team.”
