BULAWAYO Christian League defending champions Sangano Legends are unperturbed by the 2-0 defeat they suffered at the hands of Eagle Life last weekend as they believe the league is still within their grasp.
Eagle Life left footprints on the Christian Leaguea��s history as they were the first team to break Sangano Legendsa�� unbeaten streak which stretched from last season.
Sangano legends leader Timothy Mandidzadza was not shaken by the defeat.
a�?We are not worried at all about the loss, which has come after about 18 months. We have not lost the war. Our downfall in the last match is that the players were under pressure to pick maximum points after we drew the previous week hence they pressed high up and became vulnerable to counter attacks from Eagle Life which resulted in the two goals,a�? Mandidzadza said.
He said in the next matches they would be more cautious.
Flying Stars also made a statement of intent after defeating Word of Life Nkulumane 3-2 in a very dramatic and entertaining match.
They cemented their quest for the title.
a�?In our last encounter with Word of Life we were defeated, this is sweet revenge for us,a�? said Flying Stars leader Evans Maduku.
However, he said his team would not get carried away by the victory.
a�?The league is still at its infancy. We are happy about the three points but a lot of work has to be done. We now have shifted our focus to the upcoming matches and we will continue being competitive till we grasp the title,a�?A� said Maduku.
Pace setters AFM managed to maintain their unbeaten run after defeating Grace Christian Church.
