Trumus coached by relegated Tripple B mentor Peter Manoti, had started their Division One campaign with a 3-1 win over New West City in Bulawayo before holding last year’s champions Plumtree Chiefs to a goalless draw in Victoria Falls.

But that came to end on Good Friday as they succumbed to a 0-2 defeat to the Lizwe Sweswe-coached Tsholotsho FC, who have now claimed the top spot with two wins and a draw, picking up seven points.

Behind them are Technosphere who beat Elephant FC in Hwange on Friday and they also have seven points.

Plumtree Chiefs collected maximum points on Friday after beating former Premier Soccer League giants Zimbabwe Saints 1-0 and they are on position three with seven points.

Behind them are last year’s contenders Black Boots who edged Quelaton 2-0 in Fairbridge on Friday and they have picked up six points.

They are trailed by Mpumalanga who lost 1-2 to neighbours Hwange Juniors.

In other matches played on Good Friday, Ntabazinduna Prison, coached by legend Agent Sawu, played a goalless draw away to ZPC Hwange and both sides have five points.

Portland Cement beat fellow newcomers Old Nic Mine 1-0 while New West City collected maximum points from Kabwe Warriors with a 3-0 win.
