Moyale in Carlsberg Cup final

Moyale are through to the 2013 Carlsberg Cup final after a narrow 1-0 win over fellow army side Red Lions.
Zomba based soldiers once again failed to break the jinx of finishing in semifinals of cup competitions.
This season alone the soldiers have finished in the semifinals of the Presidential Cup, Standard Bank Cup and now the Carlsberg Cup just like last season.
This time it was striker Gastin Simkonda who denied the Zomba soldiers a place in the final.
A lone first half goal from the Flames striker was enough to hand Moyale a chance to have a go at the K20 million cup.
Coach Nicholas Mhango largely regarded as a cup expert after winning Presidential Cup and Standard Bank Cup is confident that he can do the trick again.
“Now that we are in the final we have to prepare well for the game,” he said.
“We need to be  in perfect shape for the final. Everything is possible.”
The Mzuzu based soldiers now await the winner between Blantyre United and Kamuzu Barracks who meet on Sunday.
Football enthusiasts are waiting to see if it will be an all army side final set for September 14.
Kamuzu Barracks enter the pitch as favourites after they booted out giants Bullets FC.
However, the Kamuzu Stadium poses a challenge for the army headquarters outfit.
They have played all their games at home, Dedza Stadium and are on the road for the first time in the competition.
Blantyre United will be looking forward to Ganyu supporters more especially from Bullets and Wanderers and the soldiers invade Blantyre.
The champions for the cup will receive K7 million, with runners up getting K3 million while losing semifinalists will get K1 million.
Individual awards include top goal scorer who will get K100 000. Man of the match from each game in the quarterfinals will get K10 000.
The sponsors have also introduced a new award called the Carlsberg Discovery of the tournament and the winner will get K100 000.
