FC Platinum 0-1 Chicken Inn

CLEMENCE Matawu struck the solitary goal as Chicken Inn stunned FC Platinum in the quarterfinals of the Net One One Wallet Cup at Mandava Stadium on Friday.

George Majika weaved his magic on the left side and set up Ishmael Lawe who prodded the ball to an unmarked Matawu on the edge of the box whose grounder beat a diving Platinum goalkeeper Petros Mhari in the 82nd minute.

Unfortunately that was the last action for Lawe as he was stretchered off two minutes later after a crude tackle by Platinum captain Thabani Kamusoko, who earned a yellow card.

In the first match of the day, Phineas Bamusi missed a penalty in sudden shootouts as Harare City lost 8-7 to Triangle at Mandava.

The match had ended 1-1 after 90 minutes of play with Nathan Ziwini having given City the leader via a header in the 10th minute before Lameck Nhamo forced parity in the 58th minute to take the game to the dreaded lottery.

With both teams missing one spot kick each from the allocated first five, it went into sudden death and Bamusi was given the chance to level at 8-8, but he chose to be stylish and chipped the ball straight into the hands of goalkeeper Ronald Mudimu.

As Triangle celebrated, Harare City goalkeeper Max Nyamupanedengu pounced on Bamusi accusing him of costing his team victory before he was restrained by teammates. The goalkeeper was clearly not amused by Bamusi’s antics and continued hurling all sorts of insults.

Even coach Bigboy Mawiwi was not happy.

“In a game of such magnitude you cannot take a penalty like that (in reference to Bamusi’s spot kick). Sometimes players put their coaches under unnecessary pressure, we practiced these penalties and nobody took a penalty like that at training,” Mawiwi fumed.

On Saturday, the third quarterfinal will see Highlanders battling it out with How Mine at Ascot Stadium on Gweru while Dynamos face Caps United at the National Sports Stadium on Sunday.

Winners will get $80 000, the losing finalist $50 000, the semi-finalists $30 000 each while the four teams knocked out in the quarterfinal stages get $20 000 each.
