HIGHLANDERS secured a much-needed 2-1 victory over Herentals College in a Castle Lager Premiership match at Barbourfields yesterday.
The win comes after a disappointing run of draws and losses for the team.
Herentals took the lead after 37 minutes, but Highlanders replied with a spectacular shot from Gillian Nyathi, levelling the scores a minute later.
Highlanders pulled ahead just before half-time, with a deceptive effort from Calvin Chigonero.
Although there were protests from Herentals over a controversial goal, Highlanders hung on for the win. The victory was a boost for the team, which had won only 12 points from a possible 42 in previous matches.
