Caps march on

LEONARD Tsipa struck a hat-trick as runaway leaders Caps United thumped defending champions Amazulu 4-1 at Bulawayo’s Luveve Stadium yesterday.

A third-minute goal by roving leftback Cephas Chimedza opened a good day for the log leaders. Tsipa then erased a first-half equaliser from the penalty spot by Amazulu’s Vusumuzi Nyoni, before going on to add two more for the Harare side’s emphatic win that leaves them on 31 points from 11 matches.

A goal-less draw at home against minnows Kwekwe Cables a fortnight ago had seemed to herald the end of Caps’ brilliant start to the championship.

This weekend’s fixtures:

Tomorrow – Sporting Lions vs Masvingo United (Rufaro); Railstars vs Sundowns (Luveve); and

Dynamos vs Lancashire Steel (Rufaro).

Sunday – Kwekwe Cables vs Highlanders (Mbizo); Wankie vs Caps United (Colliery); Shabanie vs Motor Action (Maglas); Amazulu vs Black Rhinos (White City); and Zimbabwe Saints vs Eiffel Flats (Barbourfields).
