Zimbabwe PSL Matchday 11 results: Crowd trouble at Bosso match, Dembare win
Crowd violence reared its ugly head in a match involving Highlanders Football Club again in a 1-1 draw away to FC Platinum in the Zimbabwe Castle Premier Soccer League on Sunday.
Leading 1-0 and into extra time Peter Mudhuwa conceded a penalty converted by Platinum’s Petros Mhari. Highlanders fans were not having any of it and it would appear they started throwing things onto the pitch with police having to resort to teargas to quell the disturbance according to early reports.
