IGHLANDERS (1) 1
ZPC KARIBA (0) 1
HARARE CITY have been relegated from the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League after ZPC Kariba held Highlanders in an exciting match at Barbourfields Stadium yesterday.
The Sunshine City Boys’ last game against Highlanders will count for nothing even if they win as they will not supplant ZPC Kariba on 36 points as they are on 32 points.
Yesterday’s draw also puts Bulawayo City, on 33 points, in trouble as their inferior goal difference against the power utility side counts against them even if they beat Black Rhinos in their last game.
Highlanders squandered several chances but to put the game to bed, but no one could begrudge the men from Kariba a share of the spoils after their second half showing.
Coach Baltemar Brito was disappointed that his team ended their home campaign with a draw.
“We played well in the first half and we were punished in the second half. We are not happy. It was not what we expected in our last game at home. We would like to apologise to the supporters,” Brito said.
