Ngezi Platinum Stars registered their first-ever victory against Highlanders at Barbourfields in a match played on Sunday afternoon.

Micheal Charamba and Godknows Murwira were on target as Madamburo won the encounter 2-1 to remain four points behind log leaders FC Platinum.

The visitors grabbed an early lead when Charamba fired home in the 2nd minute.

The advantage, however, short-lived as Bosso responded quickly with Gabriel Nyoni getting the equaliser two minutes later.

The home team came again in the 8th minute, but Denzel Khumalo who had a splendid performance on his league debut sent his acrobatic effort over the bar.

Both teams played beautiful football, but no goals came in the first period.

The second half saw Ngezi defender Nielson Ketala coming close to the goal in the 55th minute, only to miss the target by inches.

Tshilamoya goalkeeper Ariel Sibanda gifted the visitors with lead when he failed to save Murwira's powerless free-kick in the 77th minute.

Violence erupted at the Mpilo end soon after the goal as Bosso fans attacked Ngezi supporters.

However, this did not stop the play as Highlanders pressed on for an equaliser which never came as the match ended 2-1 in favour of Ngezi.

In Harare, CAPS United beat ten-man Nichrut 2-1 in an encounter played at National Sports Stadium.

Wisdom Mutasa who was making his first appearance in the second half of the season opened the scoring in the first minute, connecting Milton Ncube's cross.

The away side soon regrouped and dominated play with a hope of getting a leveller but this did not happen in the first half. Nonetheless, they continued putting pressure as the play resumed and made some good chances.

A red card to their striker, Rodrick Mutuma, in the 68th minute unsettled them and they conceded another goal ten minutes later when CAPS United captain Hardlife Zvirekwi tapped home another Ncube's cross.

Makepekepe could have made it three in the 85th minute, but Michelle Katsvairo missed from an unmissable position.

Farai Vimisayi squeezed a late consolation for Nichrut as they lose the match 2-1.

Results:
CAPS United 2-1 Nichrut
Highlanders 1-2 Ngezi Platinum
