The Highlanders football family is still celebrating their Easycall Cup win as Chicken Inn cry foul.

Celebrations continue in the home of Highlanders after Bosso clinched the 2015 Easycall Cup with a 1-0 victory over neighbors Chicken Inn.
But the Game Corks are crying foul claiming referee Brighton Chimene robbed them of a double with coach Joey Antipas alleging that the
penalty which won Bosso the game was dubious.
The Bulawayo giants won the game 1-0 through a penalty conversion from Ralph Matema in the 40th minute.
This was a good way for Bosso to finish a season in which they struggled all the way and finished a distant sixth in the 16-team Castle Lager Premier Soccer League assembly.
Technical adviser Cosmos Zulu says the trophy is a Christmas present to their supporters who have been behind the team through thick and thin.
Zulu, who is the Highlanders technical adviser, says it has been good working with Amin Soma Phiri whom he coached during the great days of the 1990s.
Highlanders were missing the services of veteran striker Obediah Tarumbwa and defender Eric Mudzingwa, who were suspended for the game, but Soccer Star of the Year finalists Knox Mutizwa said football is all about being a team game.
For their effort Chicken Inn received $50 000. This gives them a total of $150,000 in a season in which they also received $100,000 for winning the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League title.
