ZRP Gweru FC, somehow, had the referee to thank when he blew the final whistle to bring to an end a rioting MSU.
The law enforcers were thumped 9-0 by the Students in derby fixture that had been predicted as tricky which could go either way.
MSU’ s victory became the biggest so far this season, beating Vumbachikwe’ s 8-0 destruction of The Venue a few weeks ago.
MSU maintain the fourth position on the standings, four points behind log leaders Sheasham.
The property developers had to rely on former Real BVM striker Michael Mageja whose 90th minute strike helped Sheasham overcome a brave Real BVM.
Mageja crossed the floor from Real BVM during the July transfer window and chose the derby to punish his former paymasters with a heartbreaking stoppage time stunner.
Real BVM, however, did not feel overpowered, claiming that they had managed to hold the highly fancied Sheasham, only to lose on the stroke of fulltime.
“We threw all we had, unfortunately we conceded a late goal but that’s football.”
Sheasham’s Chairman Malvern Magiya Paradza conceded that their opponents gave a good fight but was happy to have the last laugh.
“Real BVM are a good side, they gave a brave fight but I am happy we collected crucial maximum points,” he said.
