Easy three points for Dynamos

Report by Henry Mhara

DYNAMOS picked up three easy points against struggling Black Rhinos in a Castle Lager Premier Soccer League match at Rufaro Stadium yesterday to move into second position on the log standings.

It was not a polished performance by the defending champions, but still, a first half freak goal by Clive Kawinga, his second of the season and a brilliant individual second half effort by Patrick Khumbula saw the hosts running out comfortable winners.

The Kalisto Pasuwa-coached side are now on 25 points with two games before the season reaches the halfway stage, the same number as Harare City who are third due to an inferior goal difference.

The champions are four points off leaders Highlanders who beat Hwange 1-0 at the Colliery yesterday.

While Dynamos moved to second up the ladder, their opponents yesterday moved down to 13th position on the table with 12 points.

Pasuwa said he was not happy with his team’s overall performance, but still appreciated his boys for managing to collect maximum points.

“It’s the same old story that we score first, but then we go to sleep afterwards. We should have buried the opponent by scoring many goals.

“We did not do much in the midfield and also our fullbacks were not doing enough in terms of defending when not in possession. Being on second position at this time of the season is fine with us,” Pasuwa said.

Rhinos coach Arthur Tutani, who has won six points since taking over the reins at the struggling side said: “We donated the first goal. I think it was a soft goal and it brought everything to a standstill because that’s when Dynamos started to dominate us. If we had managed to hold on to our game plan of knocking the ball around and catch them on the break, we could have done better.

“It failed to work because the goalkeeper donated a goal. I am very happy with what I have achieved so far because when I took office the team had won just once,” Tutani said.

“I have collected six points and I think it’s a better achievement from the person who was there before. My target is to rescue Rhinos from relegation, but it’s becoming hard because we are not winning.”

A routine back pass from the Rhinos defence saw sweeper Shadreck Jimu and his keeper Samuel Mafukidze failing to communicate and a persistent Kawinga sneaked in to poke the ball home.

Rhinos almost responded immediately when the troublesome Lot Chiunga cut through inside, but shot weakly and wide.

The army side had the last chance of the first half when an Obey Gaba’s speculative shot bounced off heavily on the head of Augustine Mbara.

Dynamos started as they had finished the half, dominating possession and it was not surprising when they increased their lead.

On 53 minutes, Khumbula, who was struggling with his game this far, made a mazy run into the box escaping the challenge of two defenders before hitting the nets with an angled shot.

Washington Pakamisa then had a good chance moments later, but shot weakly before Russel Madamombe’s long range shot was blocked and Khumbula wasted the rebound.
At the other end, Walter Masenda’s freekick was headed wide by Patson Jaure.
Dynamos: G Chigova, M Kadzola, O Mushure, P Jaure, A Mbara, D Chafa, T Magorimbo, T Muparati (A Gwatidzo, 64), P Khumbula (A Tavarwisa, 70mins), C Kawinga (R Madamombe, 60mins), W Pakamisa.

B/Rhinos: S Mafukidze, J Mukombwe, M Kurewa, B Chandisaita, S Jimu, W Kapinda, M Mine (W Masenda, 56mins), B Mugoni, L Chiunga, O Gaba (B Muzondiwa, 78mins), M Mudewe (T Torovasei, 59mins)

    Whats the problem with Army teams? Its high time you send these guys to wafa wafa in Kariba. How can you donate points like that? Really this is not the same Rhinos that i grew up watching. Its bad guys, try to pull up your socks. If push comes to shove, call back Droment Chirova. The current coach is not good enough.

  23. is my team chipembere making a quick return ti div one
