Harare City stormed into the Chibuku Super Cup semi-finals after a 2-nil victory over Highlanders at Rufaro Stadium this afternoon.

The Sunshine Boys kept alive hopes of a 3rd Chibuku Super Cup title.

Highlanders had a very bright start and were handed a glorious opportunity of opening the scoring after a clumsy challenge by Learmore Muyambo left referee Ruzive Ruzive with no option but to point to the spot.

Adrian Silla, however, spurned a chance of putting Bosso ahead after his spot kick was saved by Maxwell Nyamupangedengu in goals for Harare City.

Despite the early ascendancy Bosso were made to pay dearly for the missed early opportunity when the visitors defence was beaten by a long ball that was fired in at the near post by Wilfred Muvirimi.

The Sunshine Boys doubled their lead in the 32nd minute after William Manondo got to the end of a Gareth Madhaike corner much to the excitement of the home crowd in a contest that went to the half time break with Harare City 2-nil in front.

Highlanders could have pulled a goal back in the second half but a Brian Banda thunderbolt rattled the crossbar much to the relief of the hosts.

Despite a spirited second half performance Highlanders could not find the back of the net as Harare City progressed to the last four of the Chibuku Super Cup.

In the other Chibuku Super Cup quarter final at Ascot Stadium Caps United marched into the last four following a 4-3 penalty shoot out win over Chapungu in a contest that had ended in a nil all deadlock after regulation time.
