Cranborne Bullets…… (0) 0
ZPC Kariba eased their relegation fears after edging visiting Cranborne Bullets at Nyamhunga stadium yesterday despite finishing the match with 10 men for the second consecutive match.
After bravely salvaging a point at Triangle with 10 men last week, ZPC Kariba put on a solid performance with a man short for almost the entire second half as they stunned Cranborne Bullets, who were on a high after upstaging Dynamos last week.
After a goalless opening half ZPC Kariba were reduced to 10 men in the 50th minute when referee Tichaona Mbire who had a tough day in the office red-carded Munyaradzi Kunyarimwe for rough play.
The deficit did not deter ZPC Kariba as they continued to chase for every ball and they were duly rewarded in the 68th minute when former Black Rhinos striker Foster Dhemere, playing in his second game for the electricity men scored a beauty which proved to be the difference.
Dhemere received a pass from the right wing before evading two Bullets defenders and released a scorcher of a shot into the top left corner.

ZPC Kariba could have doubled the advantage moments later but striker Sam Makawa was denied by the crossbar after another raid initiated from the right wing.
