IT was joy and smiles on the faces of Shining Stars’ supporters when their side registered an emphatic 4-0 victory over Strikers United to help them to lift Zwide Football Association (ZWIFA) Premier League prestigious trophy at Young Romans’ grounds on Saturday.

Stars came into the game with 58 league points while Bay Tigers had 56. Stars knew that a win was a must, as a draw or a loss was not going to be enough for them to win the league.

Playing in front of their home supporters, Stars piled more pressure on Strikers. Akhona Lungile headed home an opening goal in the 18th minute. Strikers also meant business, as they took the game to Stars.

Fans saw the goal of the day after Xabiso Ndabambi pulled the trigger on a shot that went past Strikers’ goal-line, to give Stars the 2-0 lead in the 42nd minute. Stars skipper, Mandilakhe Katywa and Viwe Nkabi were instrumental and initiated some good moves in the midfield.

Following a good pass from Katywa, Siviwe Goba scored Stars’ third goal in the 79th minute, while Akhona Mali registered Stars’ fourth goal in the 86th minute. Stars received a floating trophy plus gold medals in their last game of the league.
