TWO goal hero Misheck Lwisha inspired FAZ division one Zone 2 side Police College FC to an almost assurance of qualifying to the 2019/2020 FAZ national first division after beating Kafue Celtic 3-1

It was the visiting Kafue Celtic side that started the game on a high by dominating play with their typical short passes in the first 10 minutes of the game.

Celtic could however not find the back of the net despite brandishing some short passing football and controlling the game which saw the home side win back possession with their high pressing game.

College took advantage of their high pressing type of game and started threatening Celtic at goal, which resulted in its danger man Lwisha putting the home side in the lead with the first goal in the 29 minute.

College’s goal destabilized Celtic who started slowing down the temple of the game to the excitement of the home side who took advantage by adding a second goal from what seemed to be an offside position but referee judged it for goal.

The second goal was scored by Wezi Kumwenda but play was halted after some protesting Celtic players got into an altercation with police officers manning the police grounds (stadium) for protesting against the referee’s decision on the goal.

The game went into half time with College leading 2- nil and continued pressing high and dominating in the first few minutes  of the last 45 minutes.

Hero of the day Lwisha sealed the win for College when he scored his second goal from a set piece in the 65 minute of the game to send the home fans into wild jubilation.

With ten minutes to full time Celtic regained possession of the ball through their short passing brand of football which resulted in a consolation goal.

College coach Evans Mwakatamba described the result as good which enhanced his team’s chances of winning promotion to the super league.

“This is a good result, it gives us a better chance of winning promotion to the super league or at least qualifying to the first division,” he said.

Meanwhile Celtic Coach Robert Tembo said that the loss to College did not dent his team’s chances of qualifying to the national first division.

“Our boys did not played well but we shall review the loss and recover in the next coming games,

“We still have 9 more games to play  before the end of the season meaning we are still in contention of qualifying to the national first division,” he said
