Chegutu Pirates 1 - 1 Herentals
In a Castle Lager Premier Soccer League match at Baobab Stadium in Mhondoro-Ngezi, Chegutu Pirates remained entrenched in the relegation zone after drawing against Herentals.

Reginald Ngazima scored for Chegutu Pirates just two minutes into the match, initially hinting at a potential victory. However, Herentals equalized before halftime through an own goal by Pirates' Reuben Machaya.

Both teams pushed for a winning goal in the second half, but ultimately settled for a draw. Referee Jimmy Makwanda's officiating stood out positively amid recent controversies involving match officials. With this result, Chegutu Pirates reached 13 points, still four points away from safety.

Meanwhile, Herentals moved to 20 points, three points clear of the relegation zone and 11 points behind league leaders FC Platinum.
