DStv Rangers firm in Div One

HARARE - Herbert Mhundwa scored a brilliant hat-trick as DStv Rangers beat Foresters 3-0 on Wednesday as the log leaders maintained their perfect start in the Northern Region division one.

This was Rangers’ fourth straight win since the start of the campaign, and they now enjoy a one point lead over second-placed Commando Bullets.

Returnees Commando maintained their perfect home record with a 4-0 victory over Banket.

Early pacesetters Mushowani Stars continued to slide, disappearing from the top four after went down to third-placed DC Academy at Hellenics Sports Club.

Former Premiership side Gunners recovered from last week’s loss to ZPC Kariba by edging Twalumba 1-0 at Lafarge stadium.

Meanwhile, DStv coach Shame Nemasango showered his players with praise.

“The team is doing well and we want keep on with our good form so that we can collect as many points as we can. I have been telling my boys that we need maximum concentration from the first game up to the last match of the season,” Nemasango told the Daily News yesterday.

Nemasango, however, said it was still early to talk about winning the championship.

“There are so many good teams in the league and we just need to do our job.

“In as much as we might want to win the title, we should not under-estimate other teams in the league because everyone is playing good football and vying for the ticket.”
