(Dynamos win the Bob89 Super Cup 6-1 on aggregate)
DYNAMOS turned on the power ruthlessly crushing Highlanders yesterday to lift the Bob89 Super Cup in the second leg of the annual tournament played at Rufaro Stadium, Harare.


They led 2-1 from the first leg played at Barbourfields Stadium two weeks ago and it seemed the second leg would serve a dish of competitive and entertaining football.

But it turned out to be a one-sided 45-minute affair after goals from double-scorer Patrick Khumbula — deservedly named man-of-the-match and taking home a trophy, an I-Pad and a Smartphone — Patson Jaure and an own goal by Simon Munawa ended the contest.

The Harare giants walked away with a $100 000 winning prize, while Highlanders got  $75 000.

“It was a good game for us in terms of our preparations for the Champions League game against Lesotho Correctional Service next week. I can afford a smile today but we should not sit on our laurels. This trophy was as a result of teamwork,” Kalisto Pasuwa said.

Highlanders coach Kevin Kaindu did not know what hit his side.

“It’s unfortunate that we lost, but I think we created a number of good chances and the few chances that our opponents got they managed to convert and that was the difference. We were expecting to win this match, but to be honest with you, I don’t know what happened,” Kaindu said.

Dynamos raced into an early lead when Khumbula fired home a low shot from close range on eight minutes after goalkeeper Ariel Sibanda had spilled a well struck shot from debutant Francisco Zekumbawira.

Barely had Highlanders recovered from the early blow when Dynamos struck again.

Murape Murape floated a free-kick into the area and Jaure rose clear on the blind side with his angled header somehow sneaking past Sibanda on his near post.

After a brief period of sustained pressure by Highlanders which saw Dynamos keeper Artwell Mukandi pulling out good saves and Graham Ncube hitting the upright, the hosts increased their lead on 39 minutes.

A swift counterattack saw defender Gift Bello galloping forward on the left flank before freeing Khumbula for a simple shot past the advancing Sibanda.

Dynamos went to the breather leading comfortably, but would increase the lead seconds after the restart.

Straight from the resumption, halftime substitute Munawa hit his own nets when an intended back pass fooled Sibanda who had already committed himself to the right when the pass was made.

The visitors’ reaction to the goal was to pull out Sibanda for Munyaradzi Diya.

Dynamos were much better in the second half and could have increased the lead.

Tawanda Muparati’s right foot volley went just over the woodwork and on the other end, Mukandi scooped off the line from another Moyo shot.

The match tempo decreased in the final stages of the match, but it was Dynamos who created the better chances.

Ex-Caps player United Washington Pakamisa, who came in as a substitute, had his shot blocked by Diya.

Dynamos: A Mukandi, P Jaure, G Bello, A Mbara, T Magorimbo (M Kadzola, 56mins), S Alimenda, D Chafa, T Muparati, M Murape, F Zekumbawira (W Pakamisa 55mins), P Khumbula (R Madamombe, 71mins)
Highlanders: A Sibanda (M Diya, 50mins), B Kangwa, I Mapuranga, L Nkomo, A Musasa (S Munawa, 46mins), B Chikaka, M Maphosa, M Mambare, P Moyo, G Ncube (O Zibande, 55mins), M Ncube
