ZPC Kariba march on

HARARE – Zifa Northern Region Division One log leaders ZPC Kariba maintained their fine run with a 4-2 victory over Commando Bullets at Chaminuka Stadium on Saturday.

Tinei Chitora scored a brace while, Livison Salesu and Pride Tafirenyika weighed in with a goal each for the Kariba-based side to pour more misery on troubled Commando.

The army side have gone for six games without a win and they continued to slide, disappearing from the top eight.

Jostein Mathuthu’s charges lead the log standing with 44 points, two above second-placed Twalumba FC.

ZPC Kariba have become a compact unit and at the beginning of the season they acquired several former Premiership players whom they blended with some youngsters.

New boys Mushowani Stars were able to maintain pressure on the leading pack after beating perennial campaigners DStv Rangers 1-0.

Mushowani are tied on 41points with former log leaders Flame Lilly but Mushowani boost of a superior goal difference.

The Zimbabwe Prison service outfit beat league new comers Forrester 2-0 to keep their promotion hopes alive.

Ralph Kawondera’s charges have blown hot and cold this season but they still find themselves in a respectable position trailing the log leaders by three points.

Former premiership side Gunners continued with their poor form after being held to a two-all draw by DC Academy at Lafarge Stadium.

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

Results: Blue Ranger 2 Jumbo 0, Gunners 2 DC Academy 2, Powermaster 0 JMC Academy 0

Flame Lilly 2 Forrester 0, Twalumba 1 Lake Harvest 0, ZPC Kariba 4 Commando 2 Chegutu 0 ZRP Morris 0, Mushowani 1 DSTV Rangers 0, Banket 2 Starbill 1
