Northern Region race takes shape

HARARE - With only five games played, World Navi Northern Region Division One Soccer League has already started showing signs that no team can afford to play catch-up if they are to have a say in the destiny of the title.

No team have managed to collect all 15 points with log leaders Mushowani amassed 13 points so far.

Mushowani maintained their perfect start to the 2014 season with a 1-0 victory over league debutants Blue Swallows at Afdis on Saturday.

The Mashonaland Central-based outfit is yet to taste a defeat this campaign after five weeks of action and they now enjoy a one point lead over second-placed Flame Lily.

Mushowani started their campaign on a bright note, with four wins and one draw from five matches.

Last season, Mushowani proved to be a force to reckon in their debut campaign and remain one of the firm favourites to clinch promotion into the Premiership this season.

Second placed Flame Lily bounce back to winning ways after beating seasoned campaigners DStv Rangers 1-0 at Chikurubi.

DStv, who were also pre-season favourites to clinch the title this season, have had a bad start, drawing two games and losing three to collect two points from possible 15 points.

League debutants Bindura United has shown that they have a say in the title race, sitting on third position with 12 points from five games.

Last weekend, the Bindura-based outfit continues with their fine form after beating Chegutu 1-0.

Former Premiership side Black Mambas now known as ZRP Morris has already shown their intention of quick return to the top flight.

They have managed three games and draw one and are bow on fourth position on the log standing.

Gunners, who were tipped for a return to the Premiership at the start of the season, have managed to win three, draw one.
