BULAWAYO Chiefs women’s football club who are warmly known as Amakhosikazi, are proving to be a force to reckon with in the Southern Region Women’s Football League as they trounced Ubuntu Queens 4-0 in their second match of the season.
Amakhosikazi are yet to concede a goal and in their season’s opener they clobbered hapless Zimbabwe Republic Police 6-0 in a match played at Bulawayo Chiefs Village (former AmaZulu Sports Club).
Nothabo Nkabinde grabbed a brace before Patience Ndlovu and Thobekile Mtambo weighed in with a goal each for Amakhosikazi when they got the better of Ubuntu Queens in a match played at Cowdray Park TM Pick and Pay ground.
In their six-nil triumph over the cops, Laureen Mupasi scored a hat-trick.
After their second win of the season Amakhosikazi coach Evans Neta said their aim was to finish the season without conceding a goal.
“It has all been hard work for us. We had a very good game from both teams but our girls showed character and it’s thank you to the girls for their spirit. Everyone wants to beat us and as such we need to be mentally fit. As a club we have a vision of having huge success and finish the season without conceding a goal,” said Neta.
Meanwhile, last Friday Bulawayo Chiefs senior men’s side visited Founders High School for a Career Guidance workshop.
The major theme of the four-hour session was to educate the youngsters about the opportunities that sports can present, social responsibility and the importance of their academics.
Spearheaded by Bulawayo Chiefs assistant coach Thulani Sibanda, present were players who have played at the highest level of African football such as Perfect Chikwende, Kelvin Madzongwe, Kevin Moyo and Wilson Mensah.
To add on to the guest list was Bulawayo Chiefs captain and vice-captain Malvin Mkolo and Lucky Ndlela. The team was also accompanied by the chiefs media and marketing department.
“Sports and education work hand in glove and it will be very problematic if one chooses one over the other,” said Madzongwe.
