PREMIER Netball League descended on Masvingo for the first time on Saturday with ZDF again showing no signs of tiring as they consolidated their lead with two victories attained from masterclass performances.
There were three bubbles in place with Harare District dominating in the capital, ZDF walking tall in Masvingo while Harare City showed class in Marondera.
But it was ZDF who stole the show in Masvingo where hordes of fans made their way to witness top-tier netball spectacle in their town for the first time.
Inspired by Gems Goal Shooter Sharon Bwanali, ZDF put newcomers St P&P to the cleaners in a 142-7 punishing scoreline.
They had been stretched to their last gear by rivals Black Rhinos who they finally managed to beat 54-41 in the bubble’s tightest duel.
Without former champions Platinum Queens and Ngezi Platinum who have reportedly disbanded as well as Greenfuel whose fate is still unknown, ZDF could be just on their way to winning the title though it’s still early days yet.
Bwanali, who was mobbed by Masvingo fans who were used to seeing her on television said ZDF need to stay grounded.
“We might be on top of the situation and on top of everyone but we need to be cautious and remain focused,” she said.
“Last year we finished fourth and we need to change that.
“We know there are so many teams like Harare District, Black Rhinos and, Stormers, Harare City, who are doing well and can challenge us at the top so we need to keep on working very hard.”
In Marondera, Harare City beat Waterfalls 70-16 before they accounted for Zupco 55-33 in another exciting game while Stormers also came out unscathed when dismissing Waterfalls 62-29 and Marondera 62-28.
Harare District were the toast of the capital beating High Fliers 45-32 while Mutare City dismissed 7Flames 49-37 in the same bubble.
PNL spokesperson Innocent Ndiya said all the bubbles went on well and more fans are coming for the game.
