ZPC Hwange take over Southern Region leadership

BULAWAYO - The Southern Region Division One championship race continues to be a ding-dong affair with ZPC Hwange wresting the top spot from How Mine after the gold miners suffered a shock 1-0 defeat to lowly Sizane at the weekend.

Edgar Chinjekure struck the killer blow for the fruit and vegetable peddlers who are destined for a quick return to the second division after failing to stand the heat in the first division.

ZPC assumed the leadership spot after dismissing former Premiership side Zimbabwe Saints 3-2 to move to 57 points from 29 games.

Former pacesetters Bantu Rovers are in second position after their 2-1 victory over fourth-placed police outfit Black Boots.

Aaron “Ninja” Nyarubira and Fortune “Fokoza” Nkala were on target for Bantu who trail ZPC by a single point and have played one game less than the log leaders.

Black Boots got their consolation from Tashinga Mungadze.
