dembare motor action.jpgPSL log leaders, Motor Action enhanced their chances of a maiden premiership title after beating Caps United 4-2 in a league match played at the National Sports Stadium this afternoon.

 

On the other hand, title contenders, Dynamos hammered Douglas Warriors 4-nil to keep the title race open.

 

With both teams tied on 63 points and with a game apiece before the 2010 premiership comes to closure, fireworks are to be expected on the premiership week 30, as the team that will win by a netball scorelime will land the much coveted trophy.

 

Motor Action now top the standings with a superior goal difference of +3, meaning that DeMbare need to convincingly massacre Black Mambas if ever they hope to clinch the title, which they have missed by a whisker for 2 consecutive seasons.

 

For Motor Action, a win over Lengthens in their last match of the season will secure a maiden premiership title, which will be a reward for 11 years of laboring without winning the most coveted prize in domestic football.

 

At the National Sports Stadium today, Caps United produced one of its uninspiring displays, allowing Motor Action to grab the match by the scruff of the neck.

 

The Green Machine surrendered meekly in the face of the Mighty Bulls onslaught and it wasn’t long before the demolition act started.

 

Enazio Perezo 9th minute strike broke the deadlock and surprisingly, the goal sent both the Mighty Bulls and Green Machine fans into jubilation.

It didn’t take the Mighty Bulls long to pour more misery on Caps United as they doubled their lead through Allan Gahadzikwa, who pounced to put the log leaders in the driving seat, before Perezo scored his second to put Motor Action 3-nil up.

 

In the second half, Caps United fought tooth and nail and upped their game in an endeavour to pull one back.

 

Their efforts paid dividends when Gilbert Mapemba hit the back of the net from a well worked set piece in the 68th minute.

 

The Green machine scored a second a few minutes from full time but Clive Kawinga’s goal was a little too late to salvage something from the match, although it gave the result some form of respectability.

 

Motor Action coach Joey Antipas was on clod nine following the win, while Caps United coach Moses Chunga expressed disappointment with his teams performance.

 

At Rufaro Stadium, DeMbare showed their intention of walking away with maximum points early in the first half when George Magariro headed in from the far post to put the former champions ahead.

 

A second half brace by Evans Gwekwerere and a strike from Benjamin Marere sealed off a fine performance by the Glamour Boys.

Although the win kept DeMbare’s title hopes alive, the result ended Douglas Warriors’ flirtation with the top flight league.

 

Even a victory in their last encounter would not be enough for the car dealers, who are languishing 3rd from bottom on 20 points, to salvage a place in the premiership next season.
