Bosso won at last in the PSL through a goal by Cuthbert Malajila (2nd Min).


FINALLY, there was something to smile about for Highlanders as they collected maximum points after eight games with a rather hard-fought win over Motor Action in a CBZ Premiership match played at Barbourfields Stadium yesterday.



Cuthbert Malajila’s first half strike was all the Bulawayo giants needed to bag three points.



Highlanders had gone for eight games without a win and this victory was a relief for the technical team, players, executive and the fans.



Highlanders’ interim coach Rueben Tsengwa was a relieved man and said the team’s patience had finally paid off and they would continue working hard.



“It was a good game for us and our patience finally paid off. We are going to continue working hard and hope to win our remaining matches and try new combinations,” said Tsengwa.



He gave credit to Zephania Ngodzo and Guide Goddard for doing a sterling job in marshalling the defence adding that Gilbert Banda would have to fight for the first team jersey.



“Zephania and Goddard did well in the heart of defence. It will not be easy for Gilbert when he returns as he has to work hard to get a place in the team,” said Tsengwa.



The match started off on a high note with Highlanders attacking from the first whistle. It was in these early attacks that the former champions managed to grab a goal.



Malajila volleyed home from close range after two minutes from a Gift Lunga long clearance. Lunga had cleared a ball under the challenge of Louis Matawu and Malajila outpaced Moses Williams who should have done better to clear the ball to safety.



The early goal gave Highlanders the cutting edge as they began dictating the pace of the game but in the sixth minute, Johannes Ngodzo looked in agony as his long-range shot missed goal by inches.



Motor Action’s first attempt at goal was in the ninth minute when Warriors midfielder Clemence Matawu set up Salimu Milanzi who took a weak shot that gave Washington Arubi no problems.



The visitors’ defence of Williams and Milanzi looked shaky and had the Highlanders strikeforce been lethal, they could have bagged more goals.



In the 29th minute Highlanders could have doubled the scoreline after they were awarded a penalty when Milanzi brought down Douglas Zimbago in the box. Marlon Jani who was in goal for the visitors made a brilliant save, diving to his left to deny Johannes a goal.



Malajila, full of running the whole afternoon, failed to beat Jani in a one-on-one situation in the 35th minute.



The last five minutes of the first half saw the visitors taking the game away from Highlanders in search of an equaliser. Motor Action made some beautiful passes, keeping possesion and making brilliant build-ups but failed to find the back of the net.



Darryl Nyandoro should have levelled in the 42nd minute after being set up by Milanzi who had done well to beat Lawson Nkomo and sent in a hard and low cross, which Nyandoro, unmarked in the box, failed to connect.



In the 44th minute Simbarashe Zimora shot over the goal with Arubi to beat.



The second half saw the Lindile Dube-coached side returning a more determined side. The introduction of Edmore Mufema for Zimora resuscitated the Harare teamstrikeforce and they nearly equalised in the 55th minute when Matawu set up Mufema but the former Dynamos striker shot over the goal.



Jacob Muzokomba who came in for Johannes could have had his name on the scoresheet but failed to connect a cross delivered by Zimbago in the 75th minute.


Louis, who had a good game beat Richard Choruma and Lunga on the left side and released a cross for Mufema who watched in disbelief as the woodwork denied him a goal with Arubi beaten all systems out.



Mufema could have grabbed a late equaliser but lack of precision saw him head the ball wide with only Arubi to beat in the 90th minute.

Bosso on the rampage

Bosso on the rampage

Black Rhinos . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 0

Highlanders . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . (1) 3

HIGHLANDERS ran riot trouncing hosts Black Rhinos and maintaining the lead at the top of the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League log at Rimuka Stadium in Kadoma yesterday. Bosso became the first team to beat Chipembere at home.

The Bulawayo giants got their goals through Njabulo Ncube on 41 minutes before Masimba Mambare scored a brace in the second half.


Bosso broke the Rimuka jinx where no other top-flight side had scored against Rhinos since they shifted base to Kadoma in June.

FC Platinum, Dynamos, Shabanie Mine, Black Mambas and Buffaloes all failed to score at Rimuka.

After the match, Bosso coach Kelvin Kaindu said he was pleased with the performance and result, but warned his charges against getting carried away.

“We played well, but we must not get carried away,” Kaindu said. “I made the decision to put Mthulisi Maphosa on the bench after I had been told the pitch was bad. I had to introduce him in the first half because the pitch is not that bad (after all).”

Black Rhinos coach Arthur Tutani said his team was outplayed.

“We had our own chances in the first half which we failed to utilise , but Highlanders are just a good side,” Tutani said.

The match started off with Rhinos threatening Highlanders, but goalkeeper Tichaona Diya kept them at bay.

Speed merchant Philip Marufu gave Bosso defenders a torrid time, but his fellow frontman failed to make use of the chances he made.

Bosso were rewarded when Njabulo got to the end of a Milton Ncube cross.

After the break Kaindu introduced Beavan Chikaka to add fire power upfront and the substitute soon provided Mambare with an assist for the latter’s first goal.

Mambare returned to put the match beyond Rhinos’ reach when he finished off with a simple tap from an Simon Munawa cross.

Teams

Black Rhinos: Hebert Rusawo, Brighton Chandisaita, Milton Kurewa, Jim Shadreck, Bruce Homela, Blessing Sunday, Brian Muzondiwa (Gilbert Mushangazhike 57min), Wonder Kapinda, Philip Marufu, Trust Machacha, Lot Chiunga, (Mine Martin 60min).

Highlanders: Tichaona Diya, Eric Mudzingwa, Bruce Kangwa, Innocent Mapuranga, Hillary Madzivanyika (Beavan Chikaka), Simon Munawa, Douglas Sibanda (Mthulisi Maphosa), Masimba mambare, Dumisani Ndlovu, Milton Ncube, Njabulo Ncube (Bruce Chuma).
