Highlanders blasts Monomotapa 5-2

Bosso against How Mine 3 days earlier
Highlanders redeemed themselves after a 1-2 loss to How Mine by blasting Monomotapa 5 - 2 in Harare with goals from Graham Ncube, Njabulo Ncube, Bevan Chikaka and Mthulisi Maphosa's brace. Mthulisi closed the proceedings with almost the last kick of the match after Chikaka had also scored in injury time as well.

Chikaka had his effort against the bar in the 88th minute after coming in for Peter Rio Moyo. Bosso were leading 1-3 at one point, playing with authority and dominating play with ease. Milton Ncube was the toast of the day, playing effectively and constructively.

Njabulo Ncube was by far the best player in the field in the first half, running hard and dropping into the midfield and combining well with Milton. Monomotapa had taken the lead after a swift counter-attacking move before Bosso equalised going to half-time.

Kelvin Kaindu's Highlanders lined up as follows: Ncube Njabulo, Ncube Milton, Ncube Graham, Moyo Peter, Maphosa Mthulisi, Madzivanyika Hillary, Mapuranga Innocent, Ndlovu Dumisani, Kangwa Bruce, Munawa Simon, Sibanda Ariel
Subs: Katsande Ashford, Mutizwa Knox, Chikaka Bevan, Masuku Heritein, Zibande Ozias,Sibanda Mgcini, Eric Mudzingwa.
