HIGHLANDERS and Caps United on Sunday both progressed to the Chibuku Super Cup quarter finals to cap a weekend of once familiar victories for three premiership heavyweights in the country’s biggest knockout tournament.
They joined Dynamos who on Saturday edged Bulawayo Chiefs 1-0 in a match that was played at Rufaro Stadium.
On Sunday, Highlanders came from a goal behind to emerge 2-1 winners over Prophet Walter Magaya’s Yadah.
Left-back Mbongeni Ndlovu equalised for Highlanders in the 72nd minute with a simple tap in, completing a move started by central defender Peter Muduhwa.
At the National Sports Stadium, a penalty shootout was needed to separate Caps United and ZPC Kariba after the two sides both failed to score during regulation time.
Midfielder Wisdom Mutasa scored the important penalty for Caps United to wrap up the game for the Harare giants, who completed the shootout with a 100 percent.
Joel Ngodzo, Milton Ncube, Method Mwanjali and skipper Hardlife Zvirekwi were all on target.
ZPC Kariba converted four of their kicks through goalkeeper Takabva Mawaya, Moses Demera, David Temwanjira and Ian Nekati.
But leftback Munyaradzi Kunyarimwe was the Fall Guy after he sent his effort wide.
