(In Johannesburg)
JOHANNESBURG - Manzini Wanderers Ladies stand a chance to win big in prizes after easily advancing to the quarter-finals of the Maimane Phiri tournament.


The maroon and white outfit took advantage of the local  break to visit the neighbouring country where they are in chase of E35 000 first  prize money. After leaving the country on Monday night, they got down to business yesterday, as they played their  round-robin matches.


Wanderers were in the same group as Blue Birds and Diepkloof Ladies. They faced the latter in their opener and cruised to an impressive 7-1 win. Talisman Meryln Sanga, Gcinile Zwane, Tibonile Dlamini, Tenanile Ngcamphalala, and Kholiwe Magagula were all on target, as the trigger-happy Eswatini side cruised to the last eight after just one game.

The other group game ending in 1-all draw, the next game against Blue Birds was played about 30 minutes later.

Despite parading tired bodies and heavy legs, Wanderers had an insatiable appetite for goals. They won 2-0 against the fresher Blue Birds, thanks to second half strikes by Gcinile Zwane and the gifted Tibonile Dlamini. They will face the best third-placed team in quarter-finals. The opponents will be known before the end of the day, as the Group C and D teams are in action today. Wanderers will return to South Africa tomorrow for the quarter-final match set for Friday. Coach Percy Shongwe was impressed by the showing of his charges and sounded confident that they would go all the way to win. He stressed that they maintained their cutting edge despite a long break.
