Have Highlanders topped the Log after Buffaloes win?

Highlanders scored a solitary goal to subdue Green Buffaloes of Mutare at home in a match they could won by an avalanche of goals. Bosso kept the hopes of landing the title alive even though Dynamos won their match easily, by 3 goals to nil.

It is reported that Dynamos scored easily past a nine men Black Mambas who also had an own goal by their goalkeeper. It is the third lucky own goal by Dynamos in recent weeks. The win made sure the Harare team is in contention for the title as they trail Highlanders by a point, though they await the verdict of their Hwange match result.

Dynamos had beat Hwange by 4-2 in Harare in a match in which their coaches were brutalised by the fans and spent the day off-sick, in hospital beds. While the PSL disciplinary gave a decision to replay the match, and the appeal by Dembare to ZIFA led to their award of the same match on the original scoreline.

Hwange have since had their appeal accepted therefore nullifying that judgement. This leaves Dynamos with a point behind Bosso but with a game in hand.

For their part, Highlanders played an entertaining match and were duly rewarded with the vital goal that may be the difference in the championship within the next coming couple of weeks.
