Gunners march on

HARARE - World Navi Northern Region Division One Soccer League pacesetters Gunners maintained pole position after walloping Chegutu Pirates 5-0 over the weekend.

The 2009 Zimbabwean champions now top the log standings with 48 points, three points ahead of second-placed Flame Lilly.

Gunners started their campaign this season on a positive note, winning 14 games, drawing six and losing only one from 21 games played so far.

With the defeat, Chegutu Pirates are now in third position from bottom with 21 points.

Second-placed Flame Lilly maintained pressure on the log leaders after beating seasoned campaigners Twalumba 3-0.

Twalumba, who were also pre-season favourites to clinch the title this season, have had a bad start, winning four games, drawing six and losing 10.

They are in second position from the bottom of the log standings with 19 points.

Seasoned campaigners DStv Rangers continued with their poor form after they went down to DC Academy.

DStv are now 24 points behind the log leaders as they only have 24 points from a possible 60.

Former Premiership side Black Mambas, who were also tipped for a quick return to the top-flight league at the start of the season, lost 1-0 to Commando.

The police side need to start picking up points or else they will be in danger of going down at the end of the season. They are currently two points above the last relegation spot.  However, they have two games in hand.

Results: Black Mambas 0 Commando 1, DC Academy 1 DStv Rangers 0, Ngezi Platinum 0 Blue Swallows 1, Bindura 0 Mushowani 0, Twalumba 0 Flame Lilly 3, Seven Flames 1 ZRP Morris 1, Starbill 2 Lake Harvest 0, Gunners 5 Chegutu Pirates 0.
