Dynamos 1-1 FC Platinum
(FC Platinum won 3-0 on penalties)

FC Platinum beat troubled Dynamos 3-0 on penalties to lift the Independence Cup at the National Sports Stadium on Friday.

This was the second Uhuru Cup glory for the Zvishavane based side which last won the silverware in 2012, coincidentally; on penalties, conquering the now relegated Motor Action.

Ironically, it was the same player Qadr Amini who ensured the win with a last minute equaliser.

On Friday, Amini struck from the penalty spot 10 minutes into added time after Dynamos workhorse Thomas Magorimbo had given the Harare giants the lead in the 18th minute.

In the resultant shootout, Devon Chafa, Themba Ndlovu and Ronald Chitiyo all missed for Dynamos while Wisdom Mutasa, son to FC Platinum head coach, Lloyd Mutasa, scored the clincher.

The result also confirmed the senior Mutasa's superiority over Dynamos as he has never lost to the Harare giants in the PSL since taking over the affairs of the ambitious club.

Last year, Mutasa masterminded a 2-0 win over his former club at Mandava in a league encounter after the two teams had drawn 2-2 in the reverse fixture at Rufaro stadium.

For their efforts, Platinum received $15,000 while Dynamos got $10,000.

In the third place play off at White City Stadium in Bulawayo, Highlanders beat Harare City 1-0 via a late Khumbulani Banda strike in the second half.

Highlanders took home $7,000 while City walked away with $5,000.
