High­landers Roy­als post first win

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport - Allen Khu­malo Sports Re­porter

HIGH­LANDERS Roy­als fi­nally recorded their first com­pet­i­tive win of the sea­son which came cour­tesy of a 3-0 win over a stunned ZRP (Byo) on Saturday.

A brace from Diana Rose Banda, daugh­ter to for­mer High­landers player Tanny and a goal from Nonhlanhla Pfuma­pano en­sured High­landers Roy­als grabbed the much needed three points that saw them leapfrog Cow­dray Park Queens into 10th place.

Roy­als’ only other win was cour­tesy of a walkover over Sobuk­hazi early into the sea­son.

The po­lice side ap­plied con­stant pres­sure dur­ing the se­cond half but could not break the vic­tors’ de­fence.

“The play­ers did well which shows they have ma­tured and are now tech­ni­cally and tac­ti­cally alert in terms of foot­ball.

“It has been a good week for the High­landers in­sti­tu­tion as our main side also posted a morale boost­ing win over Dy­namos on Sun­day,” said Jackie Ng­wenya, the Roy­als’ man­ager­ess.

In other matches, strug­gling Sobuk­hazi is still find­ing life hard in the league when their win­less streak stretched to 11 af­ter los­ing 0-3 to Mag­wegwe while Hearts of Oak and In­line Academy drew 1-1 in a top of the ta­ble clash. — @khumza­llen.
