Highlanders tops Castle Premier League table

Highlanders won 2 - 1 against Black Mambas to lead the Castle Premier League of Zimbabwe.  The home side had been leading 2-0 until the 85th consolation by the visitors. Graham Ncube headed the second goal with just over 20 minutes of play to go.

Bosso had taken the lead through Milton Ncube in the 58th minute. There was much better impetus for the team following their 5-2 drubbing of Monomotapa during the week. The result was a positive sign of constructive work done by the technical team after last weekend's 1-2 loss to How Mine.
.
Bosso started with Ariel Sibanda, Lawson Nkomo, Bruce Kangwa, Dumisani Fazo Ndlovu, Innocent Mapuranga, Mthulisi Maphosa, Peter Rio Moyo, Hillary Madzivanyika, Mimon Munawa, Milton Ncube and Graham Ncube while the bench comprised Archie Katsande (Gk), Beavan Chikaka, Heritan Masuku, Cleopas Dube, Eric Mudzingwa, Ozias Zibande, Knox Mtizwa. 


Elsewhere CAPS United beat 2-1 Platinum FC at the National Sports Stadium while Buffaloes lost 1-3 to Shabanie Mine at Sakubuva Stadium. Harare City won 2-0 against league anchors, Tripple B at Rufaro Stadium. 

There was a 0-0 stalemate at the Colliery Stadium between Hwange and Monomotapa while Black Rhinos  beat Triangle FC at Gwanzura
