ZPC Kariba maintain lead

HARARE -  ZPC KARIBA remained in pole position in the Zifa Northern Region division one league despite a 1-0 defeat at the hands of stubborn Lake Harvest at Nyamhunga Stadium over the weekend.

The Kariba-based side top the log standings with 41 points, one point above second-placed Twalumba FC.

Jostein Mathuthu’s charges have become a compact unit and at the beginning of the season they acquired several former Premiership players whom they blended with some youngsters.

Twalumba jumped to second position despite being held to a goalless draw by league new comers Forrester.

The Harare-based side was also awarded three points after DC Academy used red carded player last month.

Zimbabwe Prison service outfit Flame Lily, failed to capitalise on ZPC’s slip-up as they went down JMC Academy.

The result means Flame Lily is now tied on 38 points with third-placed Mushowani but they have an inferior goal difference.

Returnees Commando Bullets continued to slide, disappearing from the top eight after going down to league new comers Chegutu Pirates.

Former premiership side Gunners continued with their poor form after being held to a one-all draw by Jumbo Giants.

Gunners, who were tipped for a quick return to the premiership at the start of the season, have managed to win seven, draw nine and lose six of their matches thus far.

Results: Commando 0 Chegutu 1, Lake Harvest 1 ZPC Kariba 0, Forrester 0 Twalumba 0, JMC 3 Flame Lilly 1, DC Academy 1 Power Master 1, Jumbo 1 Gunners 1, Dstv Rangers 0 Starbill 1, Blue Rangers 2 Banket 1
