Highlanders 3-1 Shabanie Mine

HIGHLANDERS finished the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League season in second place, again, beaten to the top crown by Dynamos.

Bosso thumped Shabanie Mine 3-1 at Barbourfields, but Dynamos overcame Black Mambas 2-0 to win the league title on better goal difference after the two teams finished on 54 points.

Mambas were eventually relegated to the Northern Region Division One after finishing the season on 38 points.

Buffaloes drew 2-2 with FC Platinum to move to 39, while Hwange beat Motor Action 1-0 to move to 40.

How Mine drew 2-2 with Tripple B to move to 43 points while Black Rhinos edged Monomotapa 1-0 to end the season on 40 points.

Dynamos walked away with $70,000 first prize money while Bosso get $50,000 and Harare City who drew 2-2 with Caps United take home $30,000.

Highlanders are also in the final of the Mbada Diamonds Cup where they play How Mine on Saturday and are already $90,000 rich for reaching the final.

If they win, they will get $130 000 bringing their total to $180 000, more than double what Dynamos earned.

Bosso coach Kelvin Kaindu looked back at last week’s 4-0 mauling by Harare City as the game that cost them the league title.

They were also tied on goal difference with third-placed Harare City who drew 2-2 with Caps United.

“It is the Harare City match where we conceded four goals and that is the game where we lost it,” said a dejected Kaindu.

“We have been struggling at home after creating so many chances. Everyone wants to score but they are not scoring.”

Milton Ncube scored twice in the 19th and 90th minute after Njabulo Ncube had opened the scoring after nine minutes.

Shabanie got their face saver in the 23rd minute from Caleb Masocha.

The departure of Mambas from the league after Monomotapa and Motor

Action now leaves Harare with only three teams in Dynamos, City and Caps.

The power base has shifted back to the Southern and Central Regions with the two having seven teams.
