Wedson Nyirenda wins first trophy for Baroka as Shonga, Nkausu miss spot kicks
Former Chipolopolo coach Wedson Nyirenda has inspired Baroka FC to their first ever trophy when they beat 10 man Orlando Pirates on post match penalties to win the 2018 Telkom Knock-out cup.
There were four Zambians in action on the day two on either side – Justin Shonga and Augustine Mulenga for Pirates and Wedson Nyirenda and Davies Nkausu for Baroka.
Shonga played the entire game while Mulenga was substitute in the 102nd minute in extra time. Nkausu was a 104th minute substituted.
Nyirenda’s charges took the lead twice but it was his fellow countrymen Shonga who was out tinting the party by providing two assists for both of Pirate’s goals.
The two teams were locked at 1 – 1 at the end of regulation time despite the Buccaneers playing with a man down from the 40th minute. It was Baroka who seemed to be headed for the win when they went ahead in Extra Time through Mdatsane penalty but some good work by Shonga saw him run into to the byline in the box to cut back a cross which was headed home by Lorch in the 114th minute of the game.
When it came to the penalty shootout, both Shonga and Nkausu stepped up to take their spot kicks unfortunately they both failed to find the target though Baroka went on to win 3 – 2 on penalties.
