Hwange stun Dynamos

HWANGE (1) 1


ERIC Chipeta is a man of his word.

Yesterday, he rattled Dynamos’ Castle Lager Premier Soccer League ambitions with a winning penalty at the Colliery Stadium to bid farewell to Hwange in winning fashion.

Chipeta is headed for Chippa United in the Absa Premiership in South Africa and had stated before the match that he would like to sign off with a goal.

He did that, converting from the penalty spot in the 37th minute as Hwange reclaimed top spot with 22 points — one away from second-placed Highlanders who dropped two points against Triangle yesterday in a 1-1 draw — and third-placed How Mine.

“It is a good thing that I am leaving when we play Dynamos. It’s probably one of my last games and what I want to do on Sunday is to score and make sure Hwange collect three points as a big thank you to the fans, my teammates and everybody else who was around me all the time I have been here,” Chipeta had told our sister paper Southern Eye on Friday.

Dynamos coach Kalisto Pasuwa complained about the penalty.
“It was a game of chances and we failed to utilise the chances we got. The referee was closer to the ball when it hit [Ocean] Mushure’s face and I think it was not a penalty,” he said.

Hwange goalkeepers’ coach Chenjerai Dube was elated with his team’s performance.

“It was a tough game and we utilised our home advantage. The most important thing is we got the three points.”

Hwange, who are unbeaten at home this season, dominated the first half with lovely combinations from Farai Vimisayi and Alec Marime stretching the Dynamos defence, but still could not find the opener.

After 35 minutes of play, the pressure finally brought results as Mushure was adjudged to have handled the ball in the box and referee Mandlenkosi Sibanda pointed to the spot.

Chipeta coolly sent Mukandi the wrong way from the spot.

The second half saw Pasuwa introduce Anesu Gondo for the inept Simba Sithole in the 50th minute to try and pressurise Hwange.
And they were almost rewarded two minutes later when a well-taken free-kick by Mushure forced Takabva Mawaya to make a brilliant save.

Dynamos kept on pilling the pressure, but the Hwange defence was resolute and managed to contain all the attacks.

Hwange coach Nation Dube made a triple substitution in the 65th minute.

Veteran goalkeeper Timothy Sibanda was introduced for Mawaya, who was stretchered off the field due to injury, while the pacy Tafara Chese replaced Vimisayi and veteran strike Gilbert Zulu came in for Marime.

Pasuwa also introduced Tafadzwa Rusike for Tichaona Mabvura and Patrick Khumbula for Thomas Magorimbo in an effort to gain their anticipated revenge on Hwange, who ran over them 4-2 last season, but the leveller would not come.

Hwange also resorted to time-wasting tactics and with a number of stoppages during the match, referee Sibanda added seven minutes of optional time, but still the visitors could not score.

Hwange: T Mawaya (T Sibanda 65th min), P Dube, M Mungadze, G Ndlovu, E Chipeta, A Chuma, F Vimisai (T Chese 65th minute), R Chinyengetere, A Marime (G Zulu 65th min), E Rusike, I Masame

  4. Well done Chipangano! It’s indeed a game of chances. Yesterday was your day. DeMbareans like me should know that penalty decisions can work for or against you. After all has been said and done, DeMbare bhora!

  5. Pasuwa unotaurisa.. Bhora hapana nechipo hapana. Loats of players but no production. Better you try politics where too much talking is needed; not football. You will complain up to when? The team is too big for you and you are disappointing us weekend in and weekend out.


    Well done Hwange for teaching the small, stupid dynamos ‘urinemos’ boys a lesson.

  8. Pasuwa wins league and cup double 2 years in a row, then the league for a 3rd year running, but fall 3 points behind the log leaders and all of a sudden the guy is a useless manager? Fellow Dynamos fans munondishungurudza, can’t stand by the team unless they win EVERY game, nxa!

  9. imagine if it was dynanamos who were awarded that dubious penalty deno tanzwa mumapepanhau ose zvawo kuridza mhere taurai tinzwe

  11. Mangwende we Zimbabwe

    Referees like Bamala and Mandlenkosi Sibanda will never allow Dynamos to win even under friendly matches. You know why and this besides other teething problems, has destroyed our soccer in Zimbabwe. Tribalism will never take us out of Zimbabwe – mark my words.

    1. thus under those refs even a friendly match we will never win aiso bekezela and that chief culprit hardlife ndazi

  12. Wena Mangwende musa ukubheda lapha ufuna ukuthi uReferee kube ngu Ruzive Ruzive
    kube ku wina lina lodwa.Nxa sekungabanye lithi yi tribalism

  13. @ Mangwende we Zimbabwe. Takadyiwa mwana wamai. Hapana tribalismba apa. Hatina coach. Pasuwa is too talkative for nothing.

  14. @ Mangwende we Zimbabwe. Pasuwa unoti nhasi vatambi vakonewa nekuti vaenda ne road kubotswana; mangwana referee ange asiri fair kuDRC; mangwna Havana kupiwa ma bonus. AAA Bhora ngari tambwe nemakumbo kwete muromo.

  15. Pasuwa, nhasi unoti vatambi Havana kupiwa bonus, mangwana vaenda ne road kuBotswana; hee referee KuDRC wange asiri fair? AAA aiwaba.

  16. kkkkkkkkkk zvinonakidza muhipiwa imi mapenalty makamama dyiwai muri nyama imi
