ZPC Kariba maintain lead

HARARE - ZPC Kariba stayed atop the Zifa Northern Region division one after beating new boys Starbill 2-0 at Chaminuka Stadium on Wednesday.


The Kariba-based side are tied on 32 points with Flame Lilly but they boast of a superior goal difference.

Flame Lily maintained pressure on the log leaders after beating new boys ZRP Morris 1-0 at Chikurubhi.

Jostein Mathuthu’s charges have become a compact unit after acquiring several former Premiership players at the beginning of the season.

Seasoned campaigners DStv Rangers’s mini revival continued after they played to a on-all draw with ambitious Twalumba FC.

Last weekend, Rangers handed ZPC a shock 1-0 defeat at Old Hararians.

DStv have blown hot and cold this season but they still find themselves in a respectable position; trailing the log leader by six points.

Rangers, who were tipped to win the promotion to the premiership at the start of the season, have managed to win six, draw eight and lose only two of their matches thus far.

Former Premiership side Gunners continued with their poor run after they were held to a one-all draw by league new comers Lake Harvest.

This weekend, ZPC Kariba have a tricky tie when they engage high-flying Mushowani Stars at Trojan.

DStv will host Flame Lilly potentially explosive derby at Old Hararians on Sunday.

Midweek results: ZPC Kariba 2 Starbill 0, Twalumba 1 DSTV Rangers 1, Flame Lilly 1 ZRPMorris 0, Power Master 0 Commando 1, Gunners 1 Lake Harvest 1, BlueRangers 0 Forrester 1, Jumbo 2 JMC 1, Banket 1 DC Academy 1
