Harare City 1-3 Dynamos

DEFENDING champions Dynamos bounced back to winning ways with a thumping 3-1 victory over a battling Harare City in a Castle Lager premiership tie at Rufaro on Wednesday.

The win saw DeMbare shooting to the top of the Castle Lager Premiership table with 38 points - the same as City but the champions took over top spot because of a superior goal difference.

Dynamos raced into the lead with Ugandan international Boban Zirintusa heading home a cross from the right by winger Cliff Sekete after just two minutes.

Russel Madamombe then made it 2-0 on 49 minutes before substitute Clive Kawinga put the tie beyond City when he won the ball after dispossessing Witness Nyamutsaka before smashing it into the net.

Harare City finished the match with 10 men after Chrispen Dickson was shown a straight red card for an off the ball incident by referee Ruzive Ruzive.

Winger Cliff Sekete was the architect of the two goals after he set up Zirintusa with a wonderful delivery into the area leaving the powerful striker with the simple task of heading into the nets - a goal which appeared to give Dynamos confidence as they settled well after going into the lead.

Seven minutes later Washington Pakamisa, who was clearly off form, wasted a good chance when he send his effort over the bar following a good cross into the box by skipper Tawanda Muparati.

But City fought bravely with Dickson coming close with a long range effort that was however saved by Dynamos goalkeeper George Chigova.

William Manondo also missed another opportunity after he was set up by Osborne Mukuradare in the 45th minute.

After the break City threatened to equalise with slippery winger Silas Songani giving Dynamos left back Ocean Mushure a tough time.

However, despite their spirited effort, Harare City found themselves trailing 2-0 after Madamombe found the target with a tap in from a cross from the right by Sekete on 49 minutes.

Martin Vengesayi who came on as a substitute for Edgar Tapera also missed a good opportunity on 57 minutes.

In the 63th minute, Kawinga hit the side of the net following an exchange of passes with Kasekete. And as the champions continued to probe their opponents’ goal, Muparati unleashed a long range shot on 67 minutes only to be denied with a superb save by goal keeper Muzondiwa Gonese.


The home team however, refused to be cowed into submission as Mukuradare had the ball in the nets following a good cross from Vengesayi on 69 minutes.

However, City were dealt a huge blow after Dickson was given his marching orders on 72 minutes for an off the ball incident.

Madamombe had a headed goal disallowed for offside after he connected a ball headed into the area by Sidney Linyama on 80 minutes. Songani could have equalised for City on 83 minutes but his stunning free kick was saved by Chigova.

However, Kawinga killed off the game as a contest when he won the ball following a tussle with Witness Nyamutsaka who had fallen before smashing it into the nets.

The former Caps United man however, earned himself an unnecessary yellow card for taking off his shirt as he celebrated his goal.

Dynamos coach Kalisto Pasuwa said after the match, they would fine the player for his behaviour.

“We badly needed this victory especially coming from the defeat to Shabanie in the Banc ABC at the weekend; it came at the right time. We were compact in midfield where we had three central guys moving in that department,” said Pasuwa.

His counter-part Bigboy Mawiwi said: “We lacked concentration and conceded the first goal in two minutes. Our defence is known to be solid but there was lack of concentration.

“We were let down by our link but I am happy we fought hard. We are still there at the top with Dynamos and I think this break has affected us as well.”
