Mambas hold Blck Rhinos


KADOMA – Black Rhinos and Black Mambas played out a goalless draw in a Castle Premiership match at Rimuka Stadium on Sunday.

The draw ensured that Rhinos maintained their unbeaten record at Rimuka where they are yet to concede a goal.

But mambas looked poised to break that record with a breathtaking display knocking the ball around.

The police outfit demystified the myth by other clubs that the turf at the venue is not conducive for a passing game.

Mambas settled quickly knocking the ball around and stretched the Rhinos defence with veteran midfielder Innocent Nyoni pulling the strings in the middle.

Forwards Joseph Mutambiranwa, Godknows Mangani and Tsepo Ranthokoane, however, failed to make good of the chances Nyoni created for them.

Mambas were left to rue the missed chances aas they emerged with only a single point from a match they deserved all three.

Warumwa Warumwa assistant coach Martin Bonongwe said: “We created so many chances and we should have capitalised. We had the match in our hands but precision upfront was lacking. A draw is not that bad but I still believe that we should have collected the three points.

Rhinos coach Arthur Tutani admitted that his team had a poor outing and were lucky to get a point.

"We did not play well in the early stages, we left it until late. It was the substitution that breathed life into our attack. It’s back to the drawing board for us as well because we need to collect maximum points for us to survive relegation,” said Tutani.
