Lotavha FC brutally walloped Sinthumule Dangerous Stars 5-0 in their opening match of the Murunwa TVET College tournament at Madombidzha on Saturday.
The referee flashed the first yellow card in the fourth minute, after Mutshidzi Matavhela of Stars tackled Mashatha of Lotavha roughly. Nndwambi Ramovha of Lotavha was a marvel to watch and scored a hat trick.
Lotavha opened their account in the 10th minute. Their veteran striker, Morethe Letlalo, caught Stars’ keeper napping with a long-range half volley. Stars did not lose hope after Lotavha’s opening goal. They continued to play like a good unit, with their midfielders distributing some telling passes to the strikers. The score was 1-0 at half time.
Lotavha came back strongly in the last half. They increased their margin in the 49th minute when Ramovha scored from a free kick. Lutendo Davhana of Stars missed a sitter moments later. He shot wide from inside the box, with the keeper already beaten.
What followed thereafter was one-way traffic, with Stars at the receiving end. Ramovha was on target again in the 64th minute. This after the keeper of Lotavha fumbled the ball. Ramovha completed his hat trick moments later. He received a beautiful pass from Tokolo Ralebona and blasted in a rocket from the 25-meter area.
Tshililo Divhula was on target on the stroke of full time. He beat the offside trap and unleashed a close-range ground cutter to score his team’s fifth goal.
