Mosi Rovers got the bragging rights after defeating their arch rivals Amagagasi FC 2-0 in a Southern Region division one soccer match played at Chinotimba Stadium on Sunday.
The derby victory means that Mosi Rovers have completed a double against their rivals during this year’s campaign.
Coming from a defeat at the hands of Bulawayo Chiefs, Mosi Rovers were eyeing nothing short of a victory when they entertained Amagagasi at Chinotimba Stadium.
Missing some of their key players, Amagagasi found themselves on the back foot as their opponents made a barrage of attacks during the first half.
After hitting the post and having a goal ruled offside, Mosi Rovers got a breakthrough on the 27th minute thanks to a fine strike from Thabani Ndlovu.
It did not take long for the hosts to find the target again as Presley Zwelo showed composure and guided the ball past the Amagagasi goalkeeper Michael Gweshe after some wonderful exchange of passes.
The two goals scored in a space of three minutes proved enough for Mosi Rovers.
Half way through the second half, the hosts were reduced to ten men after Trust Nkamazana received his second booking.
Despite the numerical advantage, Amagagasi failed to break the solid Mosi Rovers defence.
Mosi could have extended the margin when Amagagasi goalkeeper miskicked the ball leaving the substitute Nqobani Phakathi with the simplest task of guiding the ball into the net.
The goal was however ruled offside much to the dislike of Mosi technical team.
For the hosts head coach Phumulo Mathe, the derby victory was a good result.
Mathe’s opposite number Zibonele Ncube said despite the defeat the team is hopeful of surviving relegation.
The two Victoria Falls clubs are still in the bottom half of the standings and are hopeful of collecting enough points in the remain fixtures in order to guarantee themselves division one football action come next season.
