Tenax Queens eye top spot


TENAX Queens have a chance to go top of the Zimbabwe Netball Association Super League log table when they take on Stanbic at Mutare Prison in Mutare tomorrow.


They are second on the log table with 36 points from 19 games and could go top if Zimpost who face Glow Petroleum in Kwekwe, lose the match as they also have 36 points.

Tenax have a chance to rule the roost in the league if they win the next four games after tomorrow’s match as the log leaders are five games ahead.

The game could be exciting as Zimpost would want to avoid defeat as they are aware that any slip up will be an advantage to the other teams in the league.

Third-placed Nehanda Nyakasikana , with only one defeat from 17 games will travel to Bulawayo for a date with Khami Queens. Khami Queens are fourth on the log table and will not move up the log table if they win because they have played fewer games than Nehanda Nyakasikana.

Log anchors ZRP Midlands who are yet to collect a point from 18 outings, will entertain Black Rhinos in Gweru.

ZRP Midlands have found the going tough in the league and could fall again to Black Rhinos if their results on the log standings are anything to go by.

Black Rhinos will be searching for a fifth victory in the league from 16 games.

In other games, Warthog will meet Mambas Queens in Chitungwiza while Hwange Colliery host Corn gold in the coal mining town. In matches lined up for Harare, Airforce will take on Harare Central, Support Unit have a date against ZPC Hwange with defending champions ZDF Queens expected to play Waruwaru at Raylton Sports Club.

League secretary Agnes Chiroodza said some of the teams will play more than one game per week to ease on travel costs.

“To cut on travelling costs, some of the teams will play more than one game per weekend.

“This is because if they travel to a place where there is more than one team in that area they would play more games to cut down on travelling costs,” he said.
