Caps 2: Black Rhinos 1
Highlanders 0: Tsholotsho 1

DOMINIC Chungwa was the hero once again after scoring the winner as Caps United ran emerged 2-1 winners over Black Rhinos in a Castle Lager Premier Soccer League match at the National Sports Stadium on Wednesday.

The gangly Caps United forward profited from a square pass by Pfumbidzai, before picking up his spot and let fly a powerful shot that that beat goalkeeper Stephen Chimusoro.

Caps United had the scent of blood in their nostrils from the onset with Pfumbidzai coming close on 19 minutes only for his effort to draw a fine save from the goalkeeper.

The Caps United left back missed another opportunity on 33 minutes when he directed his effort wide from a good cross by Phineas Bhamusi.

He, however, made amends in the first minute of added time in the first half, when he took a corner kick that flew across the goal and Brighton Chandisaita, in a desperate bid to clear, headed into his own nets to give the champions the lead.

In the second half, Black Rhinos showed so much verve and threatened with some dangerous raids making a number of entries into the box.

Vincent Mhandu watched in disappointment on 71 minutes, his header crashing against the cross bar.

He was, however, rewarded for his persistence, seven minutes later, when he found a pocket of space after a wonderful delivery from Lot Chiwunga.

Caps United, however, were determined to grab all the points and they got the job done on 81 minutes as Chungwa netted his fifth goal in four matches.

Crucially, the win saw Caps United collecting 13 points from a possible 15.

Meanwhile, in Bulawayo, Highlanders suffered shock 1-0 defeat to bottom side, Tsholotsho at Barbourfields.
