SA deny Zambia double in Zone VI games



Two second half strikes in a space of five minutes cancelled out Chibuye Mulilo's first half strike to give South Africa 2-1 win over Zambia and deny the hosts the dream of a double collection of gold medals in the Zone Six/Cosafa youth championships in Lusaka.

Fagrie Lakay delivered a wonder strike on 57 minutes to silence the Nkoloma Stadium capacity crowd. Kabelo Seriba put the South Africans ahead in the 62nd minute after weaving his way past a cluster of Zambian juniors.

As the curtains closed on a hugely successful Games, Zambia's Chipolopolo Juniors had to settle for second place and silver after failing break down a resilient South African team.

In the first final of the day; the women's championship, the Zambian ladies silenced their Zimbabwean counterparts 2-0 for Zambia's first ever women success on the international scene. Hellene Mubanga grabbed a brace to lead the Zambian ladies to a famous victory.

The men looked like following suit when Chibuye Mulilo struck after only eight minutes to give Zambia a first half advantage. But the South Africans rallied to seal their football gold.
