Zesco are champions as they condemn Warriors to division 1

Zesco United are the 2014 MTN FAZ Super League champions after they beat Kabwe Warriors 3 – 1 at home to overtake erstwhile leaders Zanaco who succumbed to a humiliating 4 – 0 away to Red Arrows.

The 4 – 0 drubbing at the hands of the airmen relegated Zanaco to 3rd position after Power Dynamos also leap frogged them to finish second after beating Nakambala Leopards 1 – 0 at home to secure the second and final CAF position on the log.

Zesco coach will have to thank veteran Winstone Kalengo for a brace and Simon Silwimba who scored the third in what turned out to be the former Red Arrows mentor’s first league title a year after being fired at Red Arrows.

Josephat Kasusu scored the consolation for division one bound Kabwe Warriors.

His former team Arrows however did him a favor as they stopped Zanaco through goals from international Bruce Musakanya, Stanley Nshimbi, Francis Kombe and U20 international Patrick Ngoma.

Arrows who had to win to secure their stay in the top flight started the match brightly as Zanaco struggled with the creativity of Evans Musonda who was later replaced by Stanley Nshimbi after an injury.

Nshimbi proved to be the difference on the day as his pace together with Musakanya and Ngoma was more than Zanaco could contend with all the three deservedly registered their names on the score sheet with Nshimbi and Ngoma accounting for an assist each.

Green Buffaloes who started the day in the relegation zone dug themselves out of trouble with a resounding 3 – 0 win over Indeni to condemn Kabwe Warriors to division one.
