Mighty Warriors still top group despite 1 all draw with Zambia (Latest group standings and Sunday fixtures)

Rutendo Makore scored her fifth goal in two games but hosts Zimbabwe were held to a 1-1 draw by Zambia in their crunch Group A clash at the 2017 COSAFA Women’s Championship at the Barbourfields Stadium in Bulawayo on Friday.

Holders Zimbabwe had to come from behind in the second half to grab the point after Barbra Banda had given Zambia a deserved lead at the break. Zimbabwe remain top of the pool on goal-difference going into Sunday’s final round of matches, but they will know that any slip-ups in their match against a tricky Malawi side could prove disastrous for their campaign.

Malawi kept their hopes of a semifinal place alive with a 6-3 victory over Madagascar on Friday. The She-Flames had lost their opening match to Zambia by the same scoreline. The Chawinga sisters did all the damage for Malawi against Madagascar, with captain Tabitha grabbing four goals and younger sibling Temwa the other two.

Malagasy captain Sophie Farafaniaina grabbed a brace for her side, while Mamy Razafindrabe got the other.

The islanders have now no hopes of reaching the semifinals as a best runner-up and will return home after Sunday’s clash with Zambia.
