Highlanders FC turned on the heat and style with a comfortable win that set the tone for things to come. Kelvin Kaindu turned up and lined up Ariel Sibanda, Musasa, Honest, Mdzingwa, Mapuranga(captain), Munawa, Bhekimpilo, Mthulisi, Peter Moyo,
Milton Ncube, and Graham Ncube.
Bosso rose to the occasion, blasting the back of the net twice by half time and a further display of class saw two more by the final whistle. Among those gallant heroes, young Milton Ncube was entrusted with the honour of being the toast of the day, stabbing home thrice.
The hat-trick hero showed flashes of brilliance and Mthulisi Maphosa stole the hearts of many by his performance.
Barbourfields Stadium should be once again be a fortress of note, given the polished defence which still needs polishing on the wings.
The 4:0 win at home proved the presence of a determined coach and new look young team. Of the biggest positives were the goals and the clean sheet, that taking Amahlolanyama to the summit of the log on goal difference.
Ncube’s hat-trick makes him joint top scorer and things are set to be better as the team will settle earlier and much better after the pressure of the first match, but it is now game on.
The team selection took many by surprise and it worked wonders. Another youngster, Ozias Zibande summed up an emphatic display with a deft finish to put an icing on the cake.
