Independence trophy results

HARARE - Highlanders are on a roll. The Bulawayo giants made clear their intentions of winning the 2006 Premier Soccer League title with a merciless 4-1 destruction of Hwange at Barbourfields Stadium on Good Friday.
For the past two seasons, Highlanders have watched Harare rivals CAPS U

nited winning the title but this year they seem to be more serious and the four goals they scored against Hwange are enough to send alarm bells ringing in their rivals’ camps.
In-form striker, Ralph Matema came in with a brace to take his tally to six goals in four matches.
While Bosso were winning easily, Harare rivals Dynamos returned to their losing ways. They were beaten 2-1 by a fired up Monomotapa at Rufaro Stadium also on Friday.
Monomotapa, coached by former Dynamos defender, Misheck Marimo totally dominated the match. It means Dynamos, for all the noise being made about them on the local scene, have won just one match out of four. It is certainly not good enough for a team that claims to be after the title this season. It remains to be seen if Monomotapa will maintain their strong start to the season.
Motor Action condemned Buymore to their third defeat of the season. The Mighty Bulls scored through Edmore Mufema and Clyde Musiya and it is almost certain that Buymore coach, Rahman Gumbo is going to be fired. Buymore have collected just one point this season and it is certainly unacceptable.
Champions CAPS United narrowly beat visiting Lancashire Steel 1-0 at Gwanzura Stadium in Harare. Striker, Washington Pakamisa scored the all-important goal.
Masvingo United are also in there with a shout after dismissing Zimbabwe Saints 2-0 at Mucheke Stadium, also on Friday. Saints are now early contenders for relegation early in the season. On Saturday new Shooting Stars coach Moses Chunga was a happy man after his side beat Shabanie Mine 1-0 at Gwanzura Stadium – their first points of the season in four matches.
Chapungu beat Black Rhinos 2-0 in a battle of army sides at Rufaro also on Saturday. In the other match played in Bulawayo on Saturday, Railstars and Mwana Africa drew 1-1.
