The match, which was streamed on social media and watched by fans as far as Italy, was stopped for a considerable period of time after Bosso fans overran the pitch and pelted police officers with stones.
Meanwhile, Pure Platinum Play won the Cup for the third time, picking a cash prize of $400 000 while Highlanders picked up $250 000.
The Zvishavane-based club has established a hegemony on the domestic football scene having also won the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League for the third time in a row.
FC Platinum coach, Pieter Hendrik De Jongh, who was at Highlanders a few months ago and left the club in acrimonious circumstances, gloated about the attractive football displayed by his team. He declared:
It was a football show, we played very well, we played very aggressively, high pressure created a lot of chances, Highlanders totally had no answer. I am at FC Platinum to win titles and cups, this is the first cup, more to come.
