Dynamos 1-0 Buffaloes

AUGUSTINE Mbara was the hero for Dynamos after he scored the only goal that dashed Buffaloes hopes in a Castle Lager Premiership tie at Rufaro Stadium on Sunday.

Dynamos went into the match coming from a defeat to How Mine but returned to winning ways with a victory over the Mutare army side that had also beaten them in the reverse fixture.

The win took the champions to second place on the league table after Highlanders were held to a 1-1 draw by Chicken Inn.

Dynamos forward Russel Madamombe delivered a good cross into the penalty area in the first minute but it found no takers.

The visitors also had a chance on 11 minutes but their striker Stephen Sibanda headed wide. Dynamos had better opportunities with Ugandan International Boban Zirintusa guilty of a glaring miss from a set up by Clive Kawinga in the 12th minute.

Midfielder Thomas Magorimbo was also guilty on 16 minutes following a cross from Madamombe.

In the second half, Dynamos continued to dominate and Kawinga could have registered his name on the score sheet in the 46th minute but his header went just wide.

Kalisto Pasuwa then pulled out Zirintusa and throwing in Farai Mupasiri two minutes later as he looked for the elusive goal.

And the champions got it right on 59 minutes with Mbara unleashing a low ground shot that gave goalkeeper Blessing Mwandimutsira no chance.

But still Buffaloes remained a threat with Jacob Muzokomba coming close on 70 minutes.

They could still have drawn level six minutes later but Sibanda who had dispossessed Gift Bello failed to beat a drawn out goalkeeper George Chigova in the penalty area.

A visibly disappointed Masachi immediately pulled off Sibanda after the miss, throwing on Michael Mageja but still it was the home team who could have increased their lead with Alan Tavarwisa who came on for Kawinga late in the second half watching his header crashing against the cross bar.

Pasuwa said after the match: “We wanted to collect the three points especially coming from a defeat against How Mine. We are happy with the victory but we missed good chances and I think we need to work on our attack."

His counterpart blamed lack of concentration for the defeat.

“The defender didn’t press Mbara (the goal scorer).  Sibanda also missed with the keeper to beat. It was a golden chance for us to at least get a draw. But we will have to go and redress,” said Masachi.
