Dynamos 3-0 Mochudi Center Chiefs

DYNAMOS put one foot into the first round of the African Champions League after dismantling Botswana Champions Mochudi Center Chiefs 3-0 in a rain-soaked first leg of the preliminary round at the National Sports Stadium on Sunday.

Two goals from Washington Pakamisa including a controversial penalty in the second half and a Masimba Mambare header helped the Zimbabwe champions to a comfortable win at home.

However, referee Anibal Antonio Armando from Mozambique had to stop play for 25 minutes just 15 minutes into the first half after rains which pounded the stadium had washed away the lines.

Dynamos threatened to run over their opponents who fielded Zimbabwean players Arnold Chaka and Elvis Meleka as they launched a series of raids but the visitors who appeared content with a draw sat back in their own half thwarting everything Dynamos threw at them.

The rains made play very difficult but the visitors did crack in the second half with Pakamisa drilling a low ground shot past a couple of defenders to send the stadium into a frenzy.

In the 62nd minute Dynamos coach Kalisto Pasuwa pulled off Ronald Chitiyo but his decision met with a chorus of disapproval from the fans who felt he should have instead substituted Mambare who appeared to struggle with his game in his debut.

However, 10 minutes later Dynamos were awarded a penalty after defender Kereeditse Maphane illegally brought down Cliff Sekete in the 18 area and the referee pointed to the spot.

Pakamisa stepped up to convert the spot kick for Dynamos second goal.

But Mochudi Center Chiefs players remonstrated against the decision by the man at the centre arguing Sekete had slipped due to the poor conditions of the picth

However, Mambare silenced them with a powerful header off a cross from Pakamisa on 79 minutes to kill off the match.

At the end of the match Mochudi general manager Sebele Moraicanyane said they had been robbed.


"It's the worst decision I have ever seen in my football career,” he said.

“We contained Dynamos throughout. It was such a bad decision but there is nothing we can do but God is watching."

Pasuwa said Chiefs were a very strong side that needed to be treated with respect.

"They are a very strong side. We struggled to break them down. Their fitness level was ahead of us. We now have to motivate the guys and try to go there and win," said Pasuwa.
