MUKWIMA CHILALA writes
NATIONAL division one pacesetters Young Green Eagles have continued consolidating their hold on to the summit of the league further brightening their prospects of their debut qualification to the super league.
The Young Eagles of Kafue missed out on a chance to qualify to the elite competition having narrowly lost to Kansanshi Dynamos on a place into the super league last season during the play offs.
Eagles now seem resolved to making it to the premier competition after having taken command of the national division one league where the winner at the end of the season is guaranteed super league status.
The Kafue outfit on Wednesday stamped their authority and command in the national competition after beating Indeni by two goals to one in a week 11 fixture played in Ndola.
The win over Indeni takes the Zambia National Service-sponsored side two points clear at the top of the league with 26 points.
Kitwe United who inflicted a first loss in four matches for Mumbwa Medics on Wednesday moved to second position on the log with 24 points.
Medics had gone on rampage collecting maximum points in four consecutive fixtures thereby moving out of the relegation Zone.
The home loss to United leaves Medics in position nine with 15 points on the log but still out of the danger zone.
Prison Leopards ran riot over MUZA who they beat 4-nil at home which consolidated their position in the top four , in third position on the log with 22 points.
Former pacesetters Kafue Celtics returned to winning by thumping four goals to nil in a week 11 fixture played on Tuesday at the OYDC.
The win consolidated Celtics position on number four on the log with 21 points three better than third-placed Chambeshi United who are in fifth position with 19 points.
The full results are as follows:
Kafue 4 – 0 Gomes
Mumbwa Medics 0- 3 Kitwe United
Prison 3-0 MUZA
Chindwin Sentries 0- 0 Chambeshi
ZESCO Shockers 1- 3 Nchanga Rangers
Police College 4- 1 Malaiti Rangers
National Assembly 1- 1 Sinazongwe
Indeni 1 – 2 Young Green Eagles
ZAMBEEF 0- Mpulungu Harbour
