    CHIREDZI – Triangle FC’s huge victory against  Rukinzo FC of Burundi at Barbourfields Stadium torched wild celebrations in the sugar producing town of Chiredzi with the team’s flag now flying from many places including masts, offices, private cars and kombis.
    Demand for the team’s jerseys has gone up phenomenally and  while celebrations on the night after the game went into the early hours of the next day as people wined and dined.
    There is renewed spirit among the town’s leaders including the business community to throw everything behind Triangle whose fate of proceeding to the first round of Confederation of African Football (CAF) Confederations Cup is as good as sealed after trouncing Rukinzo 5-0.
    Triangle FC Supporters Committee chairperson Misheck Muyambo said Triangle United has done Chiredzi proud and put the country and the town on the map. He was impressed by the preparedness of the technical team headed by Taurai Mangwiro and he applauded Tongaat Hullet management for their unrelenting support for the football team.
    “The victory is sweet for everyone here in Chiredzi. We are proud of our team and the joy it has put on everyone’s face. They gave us a  sterling performance and an emphatic victory that has set us on course to go to the first round of the competition. Everyone is happy with the coaching team and we are grateful to Tongaat Hullet management for the support and the transport to take supporters to Bulawayo,” said Muyambo.
    Businessman Denford Chikanyau said the business community must be mobilized and rally behind the town’s team. He said the support for Triangle cannot be left to Tongaat alone.
    Sugarcane farmer Wellington Mudzimiri said the community of farmers was elated at the football results but bemoaned the fact that games were being played away in Bulawayo which made it impossible for the team’s fans to attend matches and cheer the team.
    New comer Allan Tavarwisa bagged in 2 goals in the 7th and 36th minute and Captain Ralph Kawondera made it 3 nil just a minute before half time. Timothy January scored in the 66th minute after an assist from Gerald Bero before substitute Nyasha Chintuli made it 5 nil two minutes into stoppage time and the Sugar Sugar Boys will travel to Burundi for the second leg match with a comfortable win.
