Top teams play draws in Division One


POLICE side Black Boots clung to the top of the Zifa Southern Region Division One log standings despite playing a goalless draw against Plumtree Chiefs at Raylton Sports Club on Saturday.


Black Boots are now 39 points from 20 games while Plumtree Chiefs dropped to position six and are now on 34 points from 19 matches.

Hwange-based Technosphere missed out on chance to go atop the police side or close the gap as they fell 0-1 to town neighbours ZPC Hwange who dislodged Plumtree Chiefs from position five.

However, Technosphere also dropped to position three with 36 points from 19 matches after the defeat as Ntabazinduna Prison moved to the second spot with 37 points from 19 matches after they were held to a goalless draw by Elephants FC at the prison.

Tsholotsho FC remained rooted on position four with 36 points at par with Technosphere after playing a 1-1 draw with Quelaton at the National University of Science and Technology.

Hwange Juniors dispatched neighbours Mpumalanga 4-1 in the coal mining town, but stayed on position seven with 29 points from 19 games.

Trumus on the eighth spot with 25 points were due to entertain struggling Old Nic Mine in Victoria Falls yesterday while the New West City and financially-crippled Portland Cement tie on Saturday was cancelled.
