Congratulations to Dynamos for winning their straight third title which happens to be their 20th.

Tough luck to Bulawayo giants Highlanders and Harare City for finishing second and third respectively.

For the past four seasons, our domestic league title race has been made in heaven.

A trend has been set for the past few years with the championship destination being decided not by points, but by the goal difference rule.

This has drawn excitement into our league especially in the remaining three matches of the season.

This year, Harare giants Dynamos once again pipped rivals Highlanders as well as third-placed Harare City on goal aggregate after the three teams had finished at par on points. They all amassed a total of 54 points.

The focus changed from one team to another and at one point Highlanders were touted to win the championship when they shot to the top of the log table with only two matches to play.

However, the Bulawayo giants shot themselves in the foot when they fell to Harare City with a thud.

Bosso allowed the Sunshine Boys to score four goals thereby allowing DeMbare to widen the gap on goal difference.

With one match to play, pointers were favouring Harare City to win the championship as they had to beat Caps United with any margin to claim it for the first time in their two years in the top-flight league.

Harare City blew their chance as they played a 2-2 draw against Caps United while DeMbare sent Black Mambas to the unfashionable world of Division One soccer with a 2-0 win. Highlanders beat Shabanie Mine 3-1 to finish second.
