Power Dynamos maul Roan United
Time Posted: August 30, 2014 7:28 pm
Power Dynamos moved into second place after a resounding 3-1 home win over bottom placed Roan United.
A hat trick from Alex Ngonga completed Power’s comeback win after Roan had taken the lead in the 58th minute through Emmanuel Mwaba.
This is after the two sides cancelled each other out in the first half in a game that looked like it was heading for a draw before the four goal drama unfolded in the final 45 minutes.
Ngonga equalised from the spot after referee Emmanuel Njolo handed Power a dubious penalty in the 69th minute when Billy Mutale dived in the area.
Even the Power fans who were agitated by the teams performance up to that point were shocked by the decision and followed this up with a modest applause to the equaliser.
Ngonga put Power ahead in the 72nd minute when he headed in Kobe Chipeta’s cross.
The Zambia striker made sure he took home the ball in the 78th minute when he stampeded past two Roan defenders before rounding goalkeeper Stephen Kabwe.
Ngonga’s feat on Saturday took his tally for the season to 8 goals.
Meanwhile, Power displaced Zesco United from second place to move to 43 points, one more than the latter whose home game game against Red Arrows was postponed at the last minute.
Arrows have seven players on Zambia senior and junior duty this weekend.
Power are also just one point behind leaders Zanaco who lost 1-0 away at Nakambala Leopards in Mazabuka.
Nakambala three points came via a Dominic Yobe own goal in the 78th minute.
In Ndola, Indeni ended their three-match losing streak with a 1-0 home win over fourth placed Napsa Stars thanks to a Djunes Kanda goal in the 74th minute.
