Tsholotsho FC stopped


ZPC Hwange handed Tsholotsho FC their first defeat of the season with a 1-0 win in the Zifa Southern Region Division One league in the coalmining town on Saturday.


Fortune Rusape’s solitary goal in the 16th minute was all the power utility side needed to beat Tsholotsho FC, who remained at the top on the log standings with 30 points from 15 matches.

ZPC Hwange, coached by former Mpumalanga gaffer Njabulo Dube are on position six with 26 points from 16 matches while all other clubs have played 15 and Quelaton have played 14.

Technosphere are now joint leaders with Tsholotsho on 30 points after thumping struggling Old Nic Mine 3-0 away from home with goals from Remmington Masuku, Mavhuto Ngwenya and an own goal.

Tsholotsho lead the pack on a superior goal difference with eight wins, six draws and one defeat.

Ntabazinduna are only a point a way on the third spot and missed on a chance to go to the top after they were held to a goalless draw by Mpumalanga in Hwange.

Last year’s champions Plumtree Chiefs appear to have got back to their winning ways, collecting maximum points with a 2-1 win over New West City at Raylton Sports Club on Saturday after firing four last week past Hwange Juniors.

They sit on position four with 28 points. Black Boots beat Elephants FC 2-0 in Fairbridge while Hwange Juniors drew 1-1 with Trumus.

Former Premier Soccer League outfit Quelaton is likely to be handed three points after financially-troubled Portland Cement failed to pitch up for their home game. Portland Cement are likely to be expelled from the league and follow Zimbabwe Saints and Kabwe Warriors who were axed in May.

The league now has 14 teams and could be reduced to 13 if Portland Cement is also shown the door as the going gets tough for clubs.
