The level of competition in the Bulawayo Social Soccer League (BSSL) has gone up to another level.
Last week, the highest-scoring match was between Zulu Chiefs who were up against Pirates, where a total of 10 goals were recorded.
The eventual winners Pirates claimed six of the goals. In another match, reigning Champions Man U played a 3-all draw against Old Timers, while Stars and 70 Combination played a nil-all draw.
It was a similar case in pool B where log leaders 94 Strivers threw away two points after playing a nil all-draw against Mabuthweni.
In pool C, Finance were embarrassed 3-1 by South Gunners.
Blessing Adolph Jonga, the fixtures Secretary, believes teams have found the right formula, hence the high number of goals in the league.
“Some teams have now found the right formula and it’s really entertaining to see high-scoring matches. It shows that the competition is now at a high level. We had Zulu Chiefs scoring four goals but still lost as Pirates scored six in return,” said Jonga.
