Ntindi Shining stars crowned 2021 Muchinga Province Zone A Women Champions

Ntindi Shining Stars were on Sunday crowned as the 2021 Muchinga Province Zone A Women’s Football Champions after they defeated Nakonde Falcon 1-nil in a nail-biting final match played at The New Nakonde Stadium.

Going into this match both sides were expecting a very cagey and entertaining affair and it lived up to expectations as the game was almost headed for penalties.

Shining Stars captain and goal poacher Zewelanji Nambeye was highly policed and she was given no chance by the Falcon defense who knew the kind of threat she poses, while the likes of Harriet Chifungu came close to scoring with a beautiful well-taken free-kick just before the half-hour mark but nothing much to trouble the Falcons who held on to their nerves throughout the game.

However, with only 10 minutes to go before the end of the match, substitute Mercy Mukuka sent the home fans into a wild celebration with a late goal for Shining Stars and that was enough to win it for the coach Chiti Kangwa drilled lasses in style after a scintillating encounter as the game ended 1-0 in favor of Shining Stars.

Meanwhile, in the earlier match played at the same venue, Nakonde Tigers edged YOLO Ladies 2-0 to claim the 3rd place finish in a highly anticipated day that was graced by the guest of honor Mr. Mweemba Mugala.

Shining Stars walked away with a trophy, and K1000 prize money, while Falcon was given K500 for runners-up and all the semi-finalists teams, were presented with a match ball.
