Mayhem at B/F
There was chaos at Barboufileds Stadium after Dynamos fans started throwing missiles on the pitch following captain Edward Sadomba’s red card. The Glamour Boys went on to lose the encounter 2-0 to Chicken Inn.
Mark Harrison’s gamble pays off
Mark Harrison’s gamble to field junior players paid off when his Harare City got the first win of the campaign at the expense of Highlanders. The Sunshine Boys came from behind and beat a 10-man Bosso side 3-1.
