Zim players on fire in Absa Premiership

Four Zimbabweans players were on target when the second half of the Absa Premiership 2018/19 season kicked-offon Saturday.

Kuda Mahachi came on from the bench and got his first goal for Orlando Pirates, grabbing an equaliser in 2-2 draw against Highlands Park.

The winger moved to the Soweto Giants in August from Golden Arrows but failed to make an impact in the first half of the campaign. The goal will definitely boost his confidence as he still tries to settle at his new home.

Bidvest Wits forward Terrence Dzukamanja ended his goal drought when he hit the back of the net in 2-1 victory over Free State Stars.

The 24-year-old had last scored in August in a match against Kaizer Chiefs.

Dzvukamanja hit the target in the first half to cancel out Free State’s early lead. He played 66 minutes of the encounter as he got subbed off in the second period.

Also on the scoresheet on Saturday was Willard Katsande who captained a Kaizer Chiefs side in 1-2 loss against Mamelodi Sundowns.

The midfielder led the team in the absence of Itumeleng Khune who is expected to miss the remainder of the season with a shoulder injury.

Katsande scored a header to bring the game to 1-1 but was subbed off early from the break after picking up a hamstring injury.

Polokwane City forward Walter Musona hit a brace in 3-2 victory over Amazulu.

Musona’s first goal came in 17th minute which doubled the lead before finding the back of the net again on the stroke of halftime.

The forward didn’t finish the game as he was subbed of in the 66th minute.
