Ncube, who is well known for his mind games tactically outsmarted his opponent, Kelvin Kaindu, earning three goals against one in the process to clinch the prestigious local tournament, Chibuku Super Cup, at Rufaro Stadium on Saturday.

Harare City who apparently have become Chibuku Super Cup Kings after grabbing the trophy for the second time in three years got their goals courtesy of Manondo brace and Edwin Madananga’s opener.

Edwin Madananga opened the score-sheet for Harare City in the 66th minute before William Manondo doubled the lead six minutes later. Manondo went on to seal the fate of the visiting team through his second goal of the day in the 74th minute.

Howmine attempted to reduce the deficit but it was too late for Peter Rio Moyo’s goal in the dying minutes which could not do nothing to stop the Sunshine boys from pocketing a cool $75,000 cheque plus a ticket to the CAF Champions league.

Meanwhile, Howmine got $50,000 for finishing second.

Harare City will play against the winners of the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League, another Delta sponsored initiative, in a Challenge Cup to celebrate the Premier Soccer league’s 25 years of existence.
