THE Zim­babwe Net­ball As­so­ci­a­tion Bulawayo Prov­ince en­tered week 18 with High­landers com­ing from be­hind to beat ta­ble top­pers Delta Spar­rows 39-28 at White City Sta­dium on Satur­day.

For­mer Rail­stars play­ers Zanele Mazai­wana and Lorraine Maruza, as well as Sichele­siwe Ndlovu com­bined bril­liantly to con­demn Spar­rows to an un­ex­pected de­feat.

After fin­ish­ing the first quar­ter of the match trail­ing 5-6, High­landers came back su­per­charged to end the sec­ond quar­ter lead­ing 20-14.

The third quar­ter ended with High­landers lead­ing 31-23.

“I am su­per proud of our hunger for the ball and the in­ten­sity the girls showed in the four quar­ters.

“We did tire to­wards the end, but each and ev­ery player gave 110 per­cent and you can’t ask for more than that,” said High­landers net­ball coach Ta­tenda Gwenzi.

De­spite the loss, Spar­rows still top the ta­ble with 18 points from 12 matches fol­lowed by Zim­babwe Repub­lic Po­lice (ZRP) Bulawayo with 15 points.

High­landers are fourth with 10 points from seven matches.

Dur­ing the week, bot­tom-placed Sobuk­hazi, who are yet to win a game, will face sec­ond from bot­tom side TelOne, while Ele­phants will take on Lu­pane.
