Nchanga Rangers Queens 1-3 Choma Warriors Academy (Ivy Simbeye 23′ | Esther Mutinta 14′,15′,57′)

CHOMA Warriors Academy on Friday afternoon recorded an emphatic 3-1 victory over Nchanga Rangers thanks to a hattrick from player of the match Esther Mutinta to be crowned as Champions of the 2023/24 Women’s National Division One League.

Warriors who were representing Southern Region were up against Northern Region Champions in Nchanga and both teams were going into this game with a positive attitude knowing very well bragging rights were at stake as the winner was scheduled to face Women’s League record holders Green Buffaloes Women Football Club on 10th August, 2024 in the Charity Shield which will be the League Curtain Raiser for the upcoming season.

Warriors started like a house on fire and it only took them 14 minutes to find the back of the net through their In-form striker Esther Mutinta who tapped in an empty net before she added a second goal a minute later with a sublime finish inside the 18 yard box to fire the Southern Province based club to a comfortable 2-nil lead much to the excitement of their fans who showed up in numbers to support Team Chopicho.

Eight minutes later, Nchanga reduced the deficit by pulling one back through the league top goalscorer Ivy Simbeye who scored her 27th goal of the season from a tight angle as the first half ended 2-1 to Warriors.

After the resumption, both teams settled the nerves but yet again it was Mutinta who was on song as she completed her hattrick in the 57th minute with a beautiful close range strike and that was it for the day as Warriors managed to record a victory over The Sharp Spears.

Warriors walked away with a cheque worth K40, 000 and will face Super Division holders Green Buffaloes in the curtain raiser on 10th August, 2024 at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola, a week prior to Kick-off of the league.
