PSL round-up with Brenna Matendere

Nyasha Chazika opened the scoring in the 36th minute, but impressive Shabanie forward, Nelson Mazivisa, drew his side level six minutes later. Victor Twaliki wrapped-up the three points for Vhaombe’s charges with a penalty conversion 23 minutes from time.

Shabanie are now tied on points with both second-placed Monomotapa 1-0 winners over champions Dynamos at Rufaro Stadium and third-placed Chicken Inn, who beat homeboys Quelaton 1-0 at Luveve Stadium.

However, it was the eight-goal thriller at Barbourfields Stadium Sunday, which stole all the thunder. Resurgent Bulawayo giants, Highlanders, remained the only team with a 100 per cent record, after they beat new boys, Hardbody, 5-3.

Graham Ncube scored a brace, while Masimba Mambare, HeritaniMasuku and Simon Munawa weighed in with the remainder.

FC Platinum wrestled a point from Hwange after a 1-1 draw at the Colliery Stadium. Malvern Longwe thrust Chipangano into the lead, but that was cancelled by MitchelleKatsvairo.

Caps United got all three points without kicking a ball, after Motor Action boycotted their scheduled tie at Gwanzura Stadium.

The Mighty Bulls, who wanted their home tie played at their Motor Action Sports Club, waited there for Makepekepe, in defiance of the PSL and now face a disciplinary hearing.
