Zambian winger Kenneth Kalunga scored the opening goal of the game for Benfica Castelo Blanco who beat Oleiros to record back-to-back wins in the Campeonato de Portugal Prio.

Five days after deciding the victory with a great goal against Oliveira de hospital, Kalunga came back and opened the scoring for Castelo Blanco on Thursday in the 26th minute connecting well with a miscued shot at the fall post to put Benfica CB in the lead.

Guinea Bissau forward Amadu Tur doubled the lead in the 37th minute. Marcelo Dias pulled one back for ARC Oleiros in the second half but that was not enough to turn the fortunes as Benfica CB held on to win the match 2-1.

The 2017 U-20 AFCON winner was named as the man of the match for his heroics. The goal was his third of the season.

The win takes Kalunga’s Benfica Castelo Blanco to second place on the log with 33 points, ten adrift of log leaders Unio de Leiria.
