Mushowani lose again

HARARE - Former log leaders in the World Navi Northern Region soccer league Mushowani succumbed to a second straight defeat after going down 1-0 to Gunners on Saturday.

Just a week after slumping to their first defeat of the season when they were defeated 3-1 by newcomers Karoi United last week, they found the going tough against Gunners in their own backyard Afdis.

That defeat has seen Paul Chimelizeni’s charges drop to fourth position on the log with 22 points from 10 matches.

Under former Air Zimbabwe Jets and Buymore coach, Kuda Masaraure, Gunners seem to have fond the winning formula and are now in second place on the log with 23 points.

Log leaders, Bindura United continued with their fine form after beating Lake Harvest 1-0 at Chaminuka Stadium on Saturday.

Bindura top the log standing with 27 points, three points ahead of second placed Gunners.

John Wilo’s charges started the league on a positive note winning nine games and lost only once in ten games played so far.

Flame Lilly were able to keep pressure on the leading pack after beating Karoi United 2-0.

Nesbert Saruchera’s team is on third position with 22 points, the same points with fourth-placed Mushowani but the Zimbabwe Prison Services-owned team boost of superior goal difference.

Seasoned campaigners DStv Rangers continue with their mini revival after recording their second win of the season, beating Seven Flames 2-0.

Elvis ‘Chuchu’ Chiweshe’s charges, who were also pre-season favourites to clinch the title this season, have had a bad start and have so far managed to collect 10 points from a possible 30.

Former Premiership side Black Mambas, who were also tipped for a quick return to the top-flight league at the start of the season, continued with their poor form losing 2-0 to DC Academy.
