Gunners held, stay top

HARARE - World Navi Northern Region Division One Soccer pacesetters Gunners maintained their position on top of the table despite being held to a goalless draw by Karoi United on Saturday.

With the draw, Gunners reduced their four point gap on top of the log standings to one point and now lead the standing with 49 points.

The 2009 Zimbabwean champions began their campaign this season on a positive note, winning 14 games, drawing seven and losing only one.

Second placed Flame Lilly managed to collect all three points after walloping Seven Flames 3-0 and are now sitting on 48 points.

Third-placed Mushowani managed to maintain pressure on the leading pack after beating seasoned campaigners Twalumba 3-1.

Mushowani started their season well, winning seven games and drawing one in their starting eight matches. However, after the season break, the Mashonaland Central outfit has been blowing hot and cold.

Mushowani’s promotion quest appears to be fizzling out as they are now six points behind log leaders Gunners.

With the defeat, Twalumba remained second from bottom with 19 points from 21 games played so far.

Former Premiership side Black Mambas, who were also tipped for a quick return to the top-flight league at the start of the season, played to a goalless draw with Lake Harvest.

Meanwhile, the Northern Region Division One Soccer League is set to unveil an eight-team knock-out tournament today in Harare.

Results: Karoi 0 Gunners 0, ZRP Morris 5 Royal Classic 0, Flame Lilly 3 Seven Flames 0, Mushowani 3 Twalumba 1, Blue Swallows 0 Bindura 1, DStv Rangers 0 Ngezi Platinum 0, Lake Harvest 1 Black Mambas 1.
