CAPS United clinched the ZNA Charities Shield after beating Highlanders 3-2 on penalties at Barbourfields Stadium.

United won $12 000 for clinching the cup while Highlanders collected $8000 as the runners ups.

The match had finished goalless after regular time leading to a penalty shoot0ut. Cabby Kampha, Justice Jangano and Ronald Pfumbidzai converted their spot kicsk for CAPS United while Highlanders scored through Simon Munawa and Adrain Silla.

Tendai Nguluble Brian Banda and Rodreck Mutuma all missed for Bosso to hand CAPS United another piece of silverware.

The Saturday tie was the first major piece of silverware in the ZPSL season.

Both teams have been in form with Caps United still basking in the glory of CAF Champions League success in making it into last 16 group stages.

Caps United coach Lloyd Chitembwe superb record in finals, coupled with the extra star quality in his squad, made the champions justified favourites to lift the trophy.

Highlanders were the fresher of the two sides. Erol Akbay’s men had last played over two weeks ago when they beat FC Platinum 3-0 to secure a place in the final of this competition.  Recent signing Roderick Mutuma impressed with 3 assists whilst youngster Prince Dube scored a brace.

Caps United who have been busy in the jungles of Africa that saw them travel to Lesotho and DR Congo managed to beat fierce rivals Dynamos to book a place in the final.

Both teams were missing their first choice Keepers, Edmore Sibanda (Caps United)  and Ariel Sibanda (Highlanders) who are both set to do battle for the Warriors against Zambia in an International Friendly.

Also on National duty will be Peter Muduwa of Highlanders and Caps’ Ronald Chitiyo, Dennis Dauda and Devon Chafa.
