2019 PSL season ends, Bosso finish sixth

The 2019 Castle Larger Premier league season curtain closed down at the weekend with Highlanders playing their last game of the season on Saturday at Ascot stadium.

The two sides drew 2-2, a result that saw the midlands based side being relegated to Division One football.

Chapungu found the back of the net in the second minute when Mukamba beat Ariel Sibanda, converting Ian Nyoni’s low cross into the Highlanders box after Adrian Silla who was deployed in the left-back position failed to deal with the tricky winger.

Bosso restored parity in the 22nd minute when Nqobizitha Masuku rifled home from a set piece.

Highlanders took the lead three minutes later through an own goal by Emmanuel Chitauro who beat his own goalkeeper while trying to intercept a cross from the diminutive Ray Lunga.

The Bulawayo giants had to wait for the match between Manica Diamonds and Black Rhinos 24 hours later to know their final position on the log.

Bosso who finished the season with 46 points needed the two sides to draw to secure the 5th place, but the league new comers beat Black Rhinos 1-0 to push Highlanders to sixth position.

Highlanders Technical Manager Hendrikus Pieter De Jongh felt his charges could have won the match to finish the season on a high.

“We were supposed to have collected maximum points in this match. We created a lot of chances but failed to convert them into goals. It is a disappointing result. 

“I am not happy with the type of officiating that I saw today. We were supposed to have been given to clear penalties. We could have survived,” he said.

Highlanders gaffer Hendrikus Pieter De Jongh was also disappointed with the result.

“We wanted to win this match and finish on a better position. We conceded a goal early although we managed to come back into the game. We were also unlucky because we fluffed some chances in the second half. 

We conceded the second goal in the second half because we lacked focus,” he said.
